To keep trees and shrubs healthy throughout the year, we will fertilize in the fall.
You spend all summer keeping your lawn, your trees and your shrubs healthy, but what can you do for them in the fall? Believe it or not, the fall is the best time for fertilizing your trees and shrubs to promote healthy growth. It can be difficult to know exactly how much fertilizer to use for certain trees and plants as well as when to use fertilizers. That’s why the pros at Schendel Lawn And Landscape offer lawn maintenance services to take care of all those details for you! Our professionals have experience and a great deal of knowledge regarding trees and shrubs and can take the mystery out of the ‘green thumb’.
To promote healthy growth of trees and shrubs, the professionals at Schendel Lawn And Landscape will fertilize these plants in the fall. We do this because:
- Root growth of woody ornamentals (like your shrubs) is most active in the fall. Root growth actually slows down during hot summer weather, so to get the most benefit from fertilization, we fertilize in the fall.
- Fertilizers that are applied in the fall are more effective in promoting plant growth than spring applications.
At Schendel, we realize that fertilizer isn’t plant food; it simply improves the soil around a plant to allow it to get all the nutrients it requires for creating its own food. Excessive fertilization is unnecessary for healthy plants as well as our environment, causing too many nutrients to leak into our streams and rivers, which results in polluted waterways. We strive for moderate plant growth to keep your trees and shrubs healthy and strong, allowing them to thrive throughout every season.
