TJB-INC. DELUXE PROGRAM
Includes all above plus: Two Fungicide Applications at an additional cost for the perfect lawn
Preventive & curative rates of fungicides to control turf diseases to provide the best lawn possible.
TJB-INC. uses fertilizer in a granular form. We have chosen granular over liquid so we can better customize a program to your particular turf requirements. We can alter the nutrient compounds as needed on a per lawn basis instead of a per tank basis as with liquid lawn care companies. Our fertilizer granules act like tiny time capsules releasing nutrients as temperature, moisture, and microorganisms slowly break down the granules over an 8 - 12 week time period. This leads to longer-lasting greenness and a more regular mowing schedule for TJB-INC. lawn customers.
SCU= Sulfur Coated Urea (amount of slow release fertilizer. Higher the amount, the longer lasting it will be)
Soil samples are taken to the Connecticut Agricultural Station in New Haven for testing. These tests are used to customize our treatment plan for your property. Changes in fertilizer compounds will be made at no additional charge to you. If pH levels are too low and call for an application of limestone to be applied, then this will be done at an additional cost for which a written estimate will be provided to you first.
Wherever possible, TJB-INC. has chosen the least toxic chemicals to provide adequate control of turf pests. TJB-INC. uses fertilizers that are carbon based or "Organic" encapsulated to provide for a safer environment for all of us to enjoy.
TJB-INC.'s Service Policy - 48 to 72 hrs. We'll be back on property to inspect or make recommendations when called.
Our current service area is South Central Connecticut which is along the Connecticut shoreline from Stratford to Madison and inland to Wallingord. We use State-of-the-Art Perma-Green application equipment for most of our properties, & traditional walk-behind spreaders/sprayers where required.
