Fertilizer + Weed Control Designed for Greater Austin
Our Technicians Love to Whip Lawns into Shape
Nate is our Lawn Technician at Emerald Lawns. When he arrived last week for our lawn treatment, I decided to ask a few questions because the different types of grass in our front & back yards seemed to be struggling a bit. Before responding, Nate listened patiently as I asked a number of questions about the watering requirements for our types of grass. Nate’s answers were clear, concise, and very helpful. During our conversation, it became obvious that Nate is both knowledgeable & enthusiastic (about sharing his knowledge). As a result of the information Nate provided, we’ve adjusted our watering regimen with very positive results. We have been using Emerald Lawns for many years, and recommend their services highly.
Our technicians apply the best-in-class weed pre-emergent & spot treatments on every visit.
A Weed Barrier that Works
Did you know… with “retail” weed & feed you DON’T get the best of both worlds? Most homeowners don’t realize that the optimum time to apply the weed barrier is NOT the most favorable for spring/ fall harmonizer & fertilizer. By applying this “one-size-fits-all” approach, the lawn loses out on both.
Our professional grade pre-emergent is the best quality found on the market. It’s applied twice a year for Bermudagrass/Zoysia and once a year for St. Augustine. These applications last 6 months (vs. 2 months with store-bought!).
Our product provides unmatched, season long grub and caterpillar control with a single application. The benefits are protection for your turf against key insect pests as well as peace of mind knowing you have a safe and effective solution.
Controls a wide range of insect pests including African Black Beetle, Argentinian Scarab, Billbugs and several species of caterpillars including Cutworm, Sod Webworm and Lawn Armyworm.
Season-long grub and insect control
Ease of use with no re-entry periods and no PPE requirements
Low environmental impact – extremely low toxicity to non-target animals, including pets, birds, fish and bees
By including grub control with your lawn program, you also receive FREE service calls for Armyworms and other lawn insects!
What is the Best Grub Control?
We use the best product on the market that only requires one application a year. It is powerful, effective at attracting grubs & is environmentally-friendly.
Are Armyworms Harmful?
They can turn a lawn brown in only 24 hours! This pest eats Bermuda grass stems & appear to come out of nowhere. (FREE service calls)
What’s the Secret?
Ongoing attention! “Texas has more different kinds of insects than any other state.” Our timely & persistent care for program customers protects with all-inclusive, FREE service calls.
Contain Turf Disease to keep your lawn green & resilient
“What causes brown & yellow lawns?”
Humidity, heat & drought stress are ideal for the development of lawn disease [in abundance in Central Texas].
This is a very common fungus in our area; but your “lawn geek” will identify & spot treat lawn diseases as part of your program.
Offense is the best defense. Sometimes the untrained eye can mis-diagnose and cause additional damage. We catch things fast & apply spot treatments.
There are three reasons! 1st, the exact timing based upon what the soil needs and the weather. 2nd, We apply lower doses more frequently. This produces superior results, is better for your turf, soil, and environment. And 3rd, it enables you to request service calls and in-between application treatments to ensure you are 100% satisfied!

Controlling weeds is an ongoing battle and not a “one-and-done” event!
Weeds have the ability to grow anywhere there’s room and consequently, they’re everywhere. Weed seeds come in abundance and from many sources. Additionally, they have the ability to lay dormant in the soil for years before germinating. When actively growing, weeds produce thousands of seeds per plant. As a result, weeds disperse those seeds throughout the season.
Here are some tips we advise:
1. Know what you’re working with. Different types of weeds require different treatments. 2. Mow often. Despite the concern that mowing can spread weed seeds, it’s more beneficial to the health and density of your lawn to mow frequently. By having a thick, full lawn you essentially help “crowd out” the weeds. Correspondingly, weeds grow when there is space for them and a thick lawn reduces available space for the weeds to grow in. 3. Apply a pre-emergent in the fall and spot-treat weeds throughout the year to help grow healthy turf and reduce weeds. 4. Coupled with those other tips, follow our watering guidelines to nurture your lawn and stop weeds in their tracks.
