Pure Organic Program

This program provides your lawn and soil with all organic materials to give you the most environmentally friendly service. Weed, turf insect, and turf disease control are not included in this program, however these services can be added on at an additional amount.

We typically use synthetic-based herbicides, insecticides and fungicides when dealing with weeds, turf insects and turf diseases.

Furthermore, we do offer organic-based herbicides, insecticides and fungicides at a separate additional price. These ‘organic’ pesticides perform well, but be aware, they are much more limited on what and how well they control weeds, insects and diseases compared to their ‘synthetic’ counter parts.
