Deep Root Fertilization for Trees

Deep root fertilization is a controlled fertilization process that involves sending the feed directly to the root system. Unlike traditional fertilization methods that distribute feed onto the tree’s surface, the deep root fertilization process distributes the feed under the soil’s surface near the roots. Moyer Indoor Outdoor uses high-powered equipment and liquid fertilizer for the process. By applying it beneath the surface of the lawn, high rates of fertilizer are applied without damaging or killing the lawn or causing the lawn to have dark green spots of tall grass where the fertilizer is injected.

Moyer begins by injecting holes 6 to 12 feet from the base of the tree and then uses a “soil needle” or deep root feeder. This is a probe that is connected to a tank on the back of the Moyer truck containing a fertilizer solution. A hose comes from the tank through a pump and, under high pressure, the liquid fertilizer is injected into the soil.

Our equipment enables the operator to squeeze the handle on the injector (a probe with holes in it to allow the fertilizer solution to injected into the ground) and inject a precise amount of fertilizer solution with each injection. The Moyer expert can inject the soil in dozens of places under the tree very quickly and be on his or her way.

Depending on the time of year, it may take up to 6 months to see the results of the feeding. Please contact us for more information.
