"Budget-Smart" Turf Management Program

Budget turf management program in Massachusetts | Ford's Hometown Services

We remain # 1 for customer service. Our 85% -90% average customer retention remains unheard of throughout the country, and a proud milestone for 27 years straight. We proudly were featured for our “Premier Customer Service and Customer Retention” in January 2009’s “LAWN & LANDSCAPE” E- magazine, the largest green industry publication in the U.S.

  1. We provide the best for the least! Possibly the best fertilizer on the Market today, it is a superior product over most of the competition. Less leaching, burning potential, volatilization, and superb controlled release of nutrients up to 16 weeks or more. Allowing less visits, saving you money!
  2. We may go over your lawn two-three times with different products to do the job right. Many competitors use liquid fertilizer so they can spray everything in one shot to increase production and reduce their fertilizer cost.
  3. Our Premier customer service is outstanding and is rated one of the best countrywide. (As stated above)
  4.  Personal estimates every time. From soil test to recommendations we are there for you.
  5. As a simple courtesy, we pre-notify every customer personally before every service. We want to hear your needs. Our competition sometimes will pre-notify their customers.
  6. All technicians are pesticide licensed and trained.
