Plant Health Care Program for Ornamental Trees & Shrubs – Fertilizationsmall plant with 3 leaves and root in dirt

 

Why Fertilize?

Like people, plants need a variety of nutrients to grow and thrive. And like people, when these nutrients are missing or imbalanced plants can become weakened. A weakened plant is more susceptible to damage from environmental stresses like heat and drought, as well as attacks from insects and plant pathogens.

Properly fertilized plants grow bigger and healthier, are more resistant to attack, and recover faster from damage. Here at Turf-Logic we offer fertilization programs tailored to the specific needs of our customers and their landscapes.

Spring and Fall Deep Root Fertilization

The vast majority of a plant’s absorptive roots are located in the top 18 inches of soil. We use a specially designed soil probe to deliver a balanced liquid fertilizer that is rich in macro and micro nutrients, directly into the root zone under hydraulic pressure. This liquid fertilizer is superior to more conventional granular fertilizers because it is immediately available for uptake by the plant.

Fall Benefits Include:

  • Improved resilience to the harshness of winter
  • Strengthened root system and stronger growth
  • Increased resistance to attack from insects and disease
  • Reduced recovery time from summer stress

Spring Benefits Include:

  • Improved resilience to the stresses of summer
  • Strengthened root system and stronger growth
  • Increased resistance to attack from insects and disease
  • Reduced recovery time from winter dormancy and stress
