Fourth Year Growing



Ridge Forming is an adaptation on a centuries old technique to reduce the effects of water logging ("wet feet") on tree roots.

Designed to allow the tree to sit high in a "potted" mound, this method protects the tree root system from water related diseases.  Ridge mounds also allow better aeration and higher temperatures in the root growing zone.
