SOIL CHEMISTRY

Create and maintain a hospitable environment for the soil biology necessary for growing turf by correcting pH and calcium to magnesium imbalances.

CULTURAL PRACTICES

Proper mowing, aeration, over-seeding and irrigation practices will have the BIGGEST impact on the overall success of your program!

SOIL BIOLOGY

Feed the microbes in the soil an All-Natural Organic Fertilizer so they remain active and in turn can feed the plant.

SOIL STRUCTURE

Promote the porosity and nutrient holding capacity of the soil by addressing organic matter and CEC deficiencies.

PRACTICAL APPROACH

The key to a successful all-natural Organic Turf Care (OTC) program is to apply the right products together with proper cultural practices.  One without the other is a set up for failure.  It is important to know that a solid program begins with a soil test and requires more than simply swapping a bag of synthetic fertilizer for a bag of organic fertilizer.  This will not produce the results you desire. Healthy Turf depends on the positive interactions between:

SOIL CHEMISTRY ⇔ SOIL BIOLOGY ⇔ SOIL STRUCTURE ⇔ CULTURAL PRACTICES

As we all know, when it comes to growing turf there are things we cannot control in the season like weather, temperature and rainfall, and things that are impractical to try to change like soil composition.  At PJC Organic we call our approach “practical” because we focus on correcting those things that cultivate positive change in a way that makes sense financially and in practice.

THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER

A farmer went out to sow his seed.  As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.
Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.

Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants.

Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop — a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
