deep root water and fertilization for trees
Nurture your trees, your landscape’s most valuable asset, with deep root water and fertilization from Gachina. California’s Bay Area continually teeters on the edge of drought, with a persistently low water table. Repetitive years of these conditions are taking a toll on your trees. To combat the adverse effects of a persistently shallow aquifer combined with temperature extremes, Gachina recommends incorporating deep root water and fertilization for trees into your landscape services.
Benefits of Deep Root Water and Fertilization
- Improved root function
Deep root watering improves water uptake, despite low levels in the aquifer, which could take up to 10 years of above-average rainfall to return to ideal levels. Our treatment methods replenish groundwater, enabling the soil to retain moisture and helping your trees better absorb water and nutrients through their root system. This promotes root growth, further increasing the absorption of water and nutrients.
- Enhanced color and canopy fullness
As your trees enjoy the increased availability of water and nutrients from a stronger root system, their health is reflected in improved foliage color and canopy fullness, enhancing your landscape.
- Increased resistance to pests and diseases
Trees under stress secrete hormones identified by borers, nematodes, and other opportunistic fungi and organisms, which more easily penetrate their weakened bark. With deep root watering and fertilization, you can reinvigorate weak trees, helping them better withstand a challenging environment.
- Environmental enhancement
Our watering and fertilization methods are a boon for trees growing in less than ideal locations such as concrete planters, along streets, and surrounded by compacted soil in construction environments.

The Deep Root Water and Fertilization Process
Our landscaping professionals understand that careful timing, with deep root watering beginning prior to the incorporation of nutrients, enables trees to recover from stress and make optimal use of fertilizers.
Once we have prepared your trees to receive nutrients, we’ll begin with injections of 100% organic compost tea enhanced with mycorrhizae, a beneficial soil fungus. This fungus is sensitive to soil disruption and easily destroyed in urban environments. Once applied, it strengthens the root system, guarding against diseases.
After the application of mycorrhizae, our plant healthcare specialists then incorporate granular or liquid fertilizers. We determine the best method of nutrient delivery after analyzing the trees and soil on your property, choosing options based on the seasonal health needs of each tree. We can help you meet the changing needs of your trees with our carefully developed, varied programs, employing the best fertilization solution for the lifecycle of each species.
We offer both synthetic and organic fertilizer. Gachina is committed to safeguarding the environment, utilizing sustainable landscaping practices whenever possible.
