⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We ordered 6 of these last year to water newly planted spruce trees. They held up great. We removed them for the harsh Minnesota winters, but I just put them all back in the ground. I am ordering more as we are planting more trees. Such a time-saver!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Work well for deep watering of new trees. I've been using these for approximately a year, and they work way better than drilling holes in the bottom of a 5-gallon bucket. The water actually gets to the roots.

Everything else in our garden is stressed from lack of rain, but our newly planted shrubs and trees which have the Root Seeker buckets near them are doing fine. Great product.

Controlled Rain: The Tree I-V Process

Soak...Dry...Soak...Dry.... That's how nature works. When the soaks are too infrequent, newly planted trees will begin to stress and can eventually die. The weekly Tree I-V process gives you control of when your new trees get a good, deep soaking. As the root-well dries out, the root system begins expanding out in search of more. A strong root system is absolutely essential for hydrological independence and wind strength. Without a dry cycle, your tree can outgrow it's root system to become weaker and MORE dependent. This is a problem with slow, constant drip watering.

When you follow the Tree I-V process you will be giving each tree a good, deep-soaked root-well once a week. The entire root-ball actively uptakes water and nutrients early in the week, while the root system can catch up later in the week. This is how we target new tree "independence" in just two growing seasons.

Natural Percolation Rate

While you kick back and relax, the Root Seeker is deep releasing water at the natural percolation rate of your soil. 5-gallons of water will soak the root-well and settle out unwanted voids.

Soaked Root-Well

All feeder roots now have access to water for at least a week. The typical 15 minute drain time is the same as slow-watering with a hose. If you're watering 6 new trees, you'll save 90 minutes... every week!

About Us and Tree I-V Brand

SayeGrow is a family business located in the Southeast corner of Kansas. Our small farm is buried in the peaceful hills and oak-filled valleys of the Big Hill Lake area. The original tree watering system was created back in 1997, out of necessity, while landscaping our new homestead. When something works... go with it, right? We created the Tree I-V brand, refined the design, and kicked-off our new business.

Since 1999 we have worked to keep up with growing demand through our online outlets. The buckets and root seekers are sourced from US-owned and operated factories, and final assembly happens at our location. We continue as a factory-direct business and our thousands of customers include homeowners, city parks, and businesses of all types and sizes. Give us a chance to prove our value. We won't let you down!
