Traditionally, homeowners have watered their trees, shrubs and gardens with a hose or sprinkler. And while these methods of watering are still okay for your tree, you could be saving a lot of time, resources, money, and guesswork by upgrading your tree watering methods. Our VanCuren team has the solution to your Cleveland Heights tree health now that spring weather is upon us and summer is not far behind.
Deep root watering is your answer!
When you look at your tree, you also have to think about the equivalent mirror image of a root system underneath the ground that you can’t see. The deep root watering method is a way to get the much-needed water directly to your thirsty tree roots. Through this method, water is gradually carried 8-12 inches into the ground. This means that the water is doing more than wetting the surface and pooling into puddles around the soil that is keeping your tree steady and upright.
When you use the traditional, less efficient methods of watering via hose or sprinkler, you are also risking a lot of water and soil runoff. Furthermore, when watering on the surface using old methods, the water has ample time to evaporate before reaching the tree’s roots. Adding more water on top of that to compensate only makes matters worse by creating a shallow tree root system. Once a heat or drought hits Cleveland Heights, shallow roots have a hard time drinking in enough water from the top of the soil… the area that dries out quickest.
By implementing a deep root watering system on your Cleveland Heights property, you can actively encourage a tree to grow a deep root system while also using less excess water supply. A deeper tree root system also helps your trees anchor into the ground, reducing the potential tree or property damage during or after a strong wind or storm. When you switch to a deep root water method your tree’s roots will have access to the right amount of water at the time time — with no additional effort on your part!

I had a lot of tree trimming done and removals and I barely noticed the crew was at our house. They did their work quickly without interfering and cleaned up very nicely.

VanCuren came to my house after I left for work and when I came home, all of tree removals and trimming were completed and the yard perfectly cleaned up. Very professional company.
