As you look around your landscaping this fall, you might start to notice that your trees and shrubs are looking a little weak. That’s because when trees and shrubs are planted amidst landscaping, the soil does not always provide favorable conditions for prosperous growth. Don’t be discouraged! Our team at Portage Turf Specialists, LLC is here to help with our mycorrhizal treatment to get your trees and shrubs looking their best.
What Is Mycorrhizal Root Fertilizer?
Mycorrhizal fungi are Mother Nature’s natural alternative to chemical fertilizers, and nearly every plant on earth depends on them. Our mycorrhizal treatment is designed to introduce friendly fungal and bacterial organisms that help develop and support plant health in struggling landscaped environments.
How Does Mycorrhizal Fungi Benefit My Trees?
- Maximizes Use of Fertilizer: The extensive tentacle-like filaments that mycorrhizal fungi send into the soil release enzymes that unlock 15 major macro- and micronutrients.
- Healthy Root System: Landscape trees generally are planted in soil that is compacted, sterile, lacking organic matter, and in direct competition with turf for nutrients and water. Mycorrhizal fungi create “living” soil and a healthier root system to ward off pests and diseases more easily.
- Binds Soil: Mycorrhizae bind soil particles, which improves the porosity and drainage of the soil, and allows for air and water movement throughout the soil. The lack of compaction leads to healthier root growth.
- Drought Resistance: Mycorrhizal fungi reach deep into the soil for water and make it available to your trees and shrubs, so they are better able to withstand drought.
