Lawn Fertilization in Oak Ridge, TN
The lawn fertilization programs offered at Emerald Island are designed from experience and with a scientific level of precision based on your lawn alone. Our certified technicians mix a slow-release granular fertilizer with the nutrients and micronutrients best suited for your lawn care needs based on a soil test.
By using a granular fertilizer, your lawn is slowly fed over a longer time instead of washing off like liquid fertilizers. This allows your grass to grow thick and tough, making it better suited to fight off weeds and stand up to pests and diseases. We follow up with scheduled visits timed throughout the year to reapply and assess the progress of your lawn.
Lawn Aeration in Oak Ridge, TN
One of the most important things you can do for your lawn’s health is aeration. Lawn Aeration is a process that breaks through the thick build-up of thatch that forms over time and loosens up hard soil. The red clay that makes up much of the ground in our region makes it especially difficult for water and other nutrients to reach the roots of our lawn.
If your lawn isn’t getting the nutrients it needs, it could show signs of the following:
- Browning, thinning grass
- Pools of water in your yard
- Spongy grass
- Tough soil that’s hard to dig
The aeration services at Emerald Island are designed to get your yard back on track by using a machine that loosens hardened soil layers. This makes it much easier for your grass to absorb oxygen, water, and nutrients. If your lawn has areas of thin or dead grass, we recommend adding our overseeding program to quickly revive and strengthen your grass.
