Lawns and landscapes in Knoxville require particular kinds of care and expertise. At Natural Roots Landscape & Design, we know what grasses grow best in this region, and we know how to properly cut and maintain your lawn to keep it healthy and beautiful. Using the industries most advanced lawn care equipment, we frequently adjust the height of our mowing decks to prevent your lawn from burning and becoming susceptible to drought and disease. We sharpen the blades on our mowers twice a week, so we cut rather than shred your lawn. Additionally, we vary our mowing patterns weekly to eliminate ruts, lines, and excessive wear and tear. Additionally, we mow your grass weekly to provide growth control. In the fall, our lawn aeration process allows air to enter the soil to promote growth and to reduce compaction of turf from seasonal wear and tear. Talk with us about our lawn-care package which includes de-thatching in the spring, weekly lawn maintenance throughout the season, and aeration in the fall.
Water, sunlight, air, and nutrients in your soil affect your lawn’s health. Knowing what grasses grow best our region helps us to manage the correct fertilization levels of your turf. What is the proper mix of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium you need to apply to your lawn? Should you change the fertilization levels during the season? Nitrogen stimulates immediate energy to the blade of your grass and helps maintain that green professional look. Phosphorous enhances root growth, facilitates the function of the root to gather water and other soil nutrients and prevents disease. Potassium plays a key role in developing cell walls in your turf and in fighting disease. Let Natural Roots Landscape & Design determine these landscape needs for you.
Should you apply nitrogen nitrates, formaldehyde nitrogen, or calcium-based fertilizers? Leave the technical questions to us! Weed control applications are included with our lawn fertilization. Let our team design a lawn care fertilization program to give your lawn the energy to fight seasonal stress, the protection to prevent disease, and the proper balance of nutrients to curb drought. We apply a pre-emergence herbicide to prevent crabgrass, clover, nutsedge, dandelions, and hundreds of other invasive weeds from germinating in your lawn during the spring. A post-emergence application in the late spring sends a second wave of herbicides to kill existing weeds. Our team maintains Island Pointe Golf Course, and we welcome the chance to utilize that experience to keep your lawn looking and feeling healthy all season long!
