DeepDrip ™ TREE WATERING STAKES Water and fertilize your trees at the roots, encouraging deeper roots and healthier trees with DeepDrip ™ stakes. Water gets underground fast, so you can irrigate for shorter periods and save water. They also help aerate the soil, and you can add fertilizer into the shaft to direct nutrients to the root zone. Three Lengths For All Tree Sizes: Use the 14.5" stake for shallow root trees and shrubs, like rose bushes and ornamental trees (or boxed trees). The 24.5" stake is best for most other tree varieties except for palms and similarly deeper rooted trees, which will beneft from the longer 36" stakes. Built Smart - And Easy To Use: The DeepDrip's reinforced tip and cap are made from ABS and the upper shaft is made from Schedule 40 PVC. Multiple holes in the bottom half of the spike, internally covered by a mesh flter, allow water to fow out but keep dirt from getting in and clogging the tube. The UV-protected cap acts as a reinforced cover when pounding the stake into the ground, keeps debris from entering the shaft and holds a 1/4" drip line/emitter securely in place. By inserting a screwdriver through the two holes at the top of the upper shaft, stakes can be easily pulled up to remove/ reposition, or rotated to deter root invasion. ADD TO EXISTING TREES! Install DeepDrip ™ stakes during or after tree planting for instant access to the root system for fertilizer delivery or to set up deep automatic drip watering. 13 866-863-3744 • • Includes 1" brass quick-connect adapter 1'' reinforced heavy-duty hose (sold separately).
