Effective lawn care is a layered process. As nice as it would be to simply spritz water on your lawn once a day and be done, if you’re hoping for high-quality results, you’ll have to dig a bit deeper. Sometimes literally. Root care is an often-overlooked aspect of lawn care that can enhance the health of everything on your Winona, MN property from the ground up. At Maier Tree and Lawn, we provide individualized root care guidance as well as comprehensive hands-on lawn care support.

Evaluating Your Root Health

Since you can’t see the roots of your lawn with the naked eye, evaluating root health takes some inference. Lawns that tend to grow slowly, produce weeds, and hold standing water are indicating that something is wrong with the growth conditions available to them. It may not always be a problem with the roots directly, but root care is holistic in nature; if you work to improve the overall conditions of your property, roots will have an easier time taking hold.

Some other signs that you might be dealing with a shallow root system include brittle or dry grass, browning, and clumps that are easy to displace. Sturdy, healthy root systems are difficult to tear up and even harder to kill.

Making a Customized Root Care Plan

Once an issue with your lawn’s root system becomes apparent, there are a wide variety of care options available. However, selecting treatments without forethought or professional guidance can be a waste of time and money. Every lawn’s ecosystem is a bit different, even from lot to lot in the same area. In order to ensure the best root care possible, consulting with a lawn care expert is the best way to guarantee a plan that directly supports your roots.

At Maier Tree and Lawn, our customized root care options include aeration services, nutrition injections, expert health evaluations, and more. Depending on what your roots are lacking, our team can devise a care plan that directly targets the areas for growth.
