You want your lawn to look beautiful, which means you’ll probably do some landscaping at one point or another. While surface work like mowing, mulching and planting flowers does a lot to make your yard look nice, many homeowners overlook the importance of deep fertilization for their shrubs and trees. Here are some of the benefits of fertilization.
Encourages Root Growth
Deep fertilization encourages root growth around your trees and shrubs. Roots are absolutely vital to an overall healthy plant. Without healthy roots, your foliage won’t be able to absorb nutrients properly and could cause the plant to die.
Fertilizing your foliage will provide them with the necessary nutrients to aid with growth. Proper nutrients also keep your shrubs and trees healthy and hardy longer.
Protects Against Diseases
Often, trees and shrubs become diseased due to improper care and lack of fertilization. Fertilizing them gives them the extra boost they need to safeguard them against common plant diseases and even some insect infestations.
Good for Health
Deep fertilizing your shrubs and trees is good or their overall health. They’ll look more lush and healthy and live longer than if you were to neglect their fertilization needs.
You may not know where to start when it comes to fertilizing your shrubs and trees. You should always start by speaking with a professional. They can evaluate your needs and give you a recommendation on what type of fertilizer to use and even do the job for you.
