Martin Lishman is introducing a ‘ permanent solution for lifelong healthy trees and roots’. Rootwell is an innovative device that provides a vertical channel for water, fertilizers and soil amendments such as compost tea to reach deeper soil horizons, directly irrigating and aerating the critical root zone. This helps to eliminate wasteful run-off and can reduce water application by up to 30%.
Benefits experienced by growers using Rootwell include less soil compaction, improved root development and increased biomass growth. An added advantage is that direct watering to the roots allows any excess water to quickly evaporate, enabling gas exchange to take place at the roots and reducing the risk of suffocation.
It contributes to healthy and sustainable growth by providing access for essential elements such as oxygen, water and nutrients to reach the root zone. The walls of the device are highly permeable, providing oxygen exchange with the soil surrounding the device. This enables the roots to grow deeper in the soil, whereas the roots of trees which are not planted using Rootwell have to make their way to the surface in order to seek oxygen and will be inherently less stable.
Rootwell is available in two sizes. Rootstick is commonly used for smaller plants as well as root maintenance for shrubs. The Rootwell is used when transplanting larger trees, placed inside and outside the planting pit.
Martin Lishman will also be exhibiting the Growing Solutions Compost Tea Systems which have pioneered the use of compost tea all over the world and have consistently been proven to make compost tea with the highest levels of aerobic micro-organisms. Compost tea use in the landscaping industry is the fastest growing area of use. A wide range of benefits are realised with the addition of compost tea to existing plantings as well as new landscaping projects. Visitors will also have the opportunity to find out more about Martin Lishman’s self-propelled pedestrian sprayer .
