"Organic" Used To Mean Expensive, Complex, And Ineffective. Not Anymore.

Schools and municipalities are showing their students and the community the importance of sustainable practices. Across the nation, implementation of green initiatives has become a major strategic goal for public and private institutions. There is pressure from the community, regulatory and advocacy groups, as well as, the legislature to make changes. Managing these conflicting desires can be challenging. We work with your maintenance team and/or service provider to tailor an All-Natural Organic Turf Care program that is easy to follow, effective, fits your budget, and is sustainable for generations.

Soil Testing + Plus

Take any course on organic lawn care, view an article on the internet or read a book, the first thing you are told to do is take a soil test. So, you dutifully take a soil sample, send it off to a lab; get the results back – then what?"

Program Development

Organic: Not just a trend anymore. Increased research and development is positively impacting the quality of organic turf care. While there are still programs that claim to be one-size-fits-all, PJC offers customized products and programs that remain simple and practical.

Soil Testing

Whether you are just starting an organic program or you have been providing a service for years it is important to remember that a solid program begins with a soil test.

We’ll send you the soil sampling supplies and instructions. You take the sample and mail to the lab. We get the results, read them for you and send you the results in an easy-to-understand word document with your company logo that you can edit and send to your customer. Sound amazing? It is!

Included:

  • Soil sampling supplies and instructions
  • Soil test for: pH, buffer pH, Organic Matter, Cation Exchange Capacity, P/K/Mg and % Base Saturation.
  • Report with product recommendations provided in easy to understand format
  • Master Product Application Chart: lists by site product, # of bags, # of applications and when to apply for the season. We update it as new soil tests are taken saving you time and making product decisions easy.

Complete Land Organics
“To be successful delivering organic services, you have to educate yourself and it doesn’t happen overnight. PJC’s ability to understand the latest research and what’s going on in the field is important to our business. They are so much more than a seller of organic products.”
“Our organic program has been fantastic. Grubs have never been a factor at the Governor’s Academy. The few that we have encountered were on fields that don’t have irrigation and have been minimal over the last 15 years. We receive many compliments on the way our fields look in the extreme heat of the summer, as well as, in November when the season is winding down. The turf stands up to games, practices and all the other functions that are held on the 450 acres that we maintain. PJC has been a great asset for me for more than a decade.”
