Emerald Island Lawn Service offers a comprehensive lawn care program designed to provide the right nutrients, in the right quantities at the right time.
Great lawns have great soils underneath them. That's why it's so important to do a soil test. A soil test gives an accurate analysis of the basic building blocks found in the soil on your property. By conducting a soil analysis before beginning a lawncare program, we will know exactly what your soil needs to grow a quality lawn.
The main component of our professional lawn care program is fertilization. Turf grass by its nature is fast growing. That means that it quickly uses nutrients and micro-nutrients from the soil during a regular growing season. To maintain your soil's nutrient level for optimum turf growth, it requires supplements to be added.
Fertilizer is not really a food for grass as many people think. It's more like a vitamin for people. Turf grass actually makes its own food by transforming sunlight into energy that the grass can use. Soil nutrients help the turf grass process that sunlight and is thus a critical element in the success of your lawn.
Emerald Island 's Lawn Care Program includes multiple scheduled visits throughout the growing season. We use a slow release fertilizer that provides important lawn nutrients and micro-nutrients over a longer period of time. This means no sudden bursts of top-growth requiring lots of additional mowing. Our granular fertilizer dissolves into the soil slowly, providing just the right balance of nutrients for strong root development and lush green top-growth.
