Our custom blended organic nutrients mimic the forest floor
We know healthy trees and shrubs start with healthy soil and there is no healthier soil than that of a forest. The goal of our nutrients treatments is to mimic the forest floor by incorporating natural macronutrients, micronutrients and conditioners into the soil. This method stimulates the fertility and richness of your soil, which allows your trees and shrubs to better uptake water and essential nutrients.
Using locally-sourced rainwater, our custom blend is based on a ratio of 5-10-10. 5% Nitrogen, 10% Phosphorus and 10% Food Grade Potash plus organic soil compounds, humic and other organic acids, enzymes and a full range of natural nutrients.
Fortified with additional organic compounds, our nutrient treatments are injected in a grid pattern around the base of your trees. Targeting the root zone means your trees get the maximum benefit. Water and nutrients go directly to your trees’ roots without runoff into surface or ground water.
Traditional methods of maintaining turf, plants and trees often have negative effects. For decades, chemically-based fertilizers have been recommended to care for trees and shrubs. These chemicals force excessive, new growth, which is hard to sustain during seasons of drought and high temperatures. Additionally, many routine measures, such as mowing and raking, actually remove essential organic matter which helps to preserve tree and plant health.
We’ve been perfecting our recipe for decades.
Our environmentally-friendly nutrient treatments also loosen and break up the compacted clay soil often found in Virginia, resulting in better growing conditions for your landscape and make it stronger and more pest & disease resistant for years to come.
You will begin to see a difference after just one nutrients treatment; however, to achieve long term and lasting results, we will want to determine the appropriate frequency of application for your property’s specific needs.
Did you know that fallen leaves are one of the most beneficial fertilizers for your trees? In the fall, instead of raking them, shred your leaves with a mower and use them as mulch around the base of your tree. Decayed leaves account for up to 80% of the nutrients that trees uptake from the soil in a forest.
