Premier Turf Management Program

“The highest quality & agronomical sound lawn care program in New England”
-Craig Wardle, Owner of PLS Lawn Supply

Best turf management in Massachusetts | Ford's Hometown Services

We are confident there is no better fertilizing program available, and in comparison to our competition, we remain # 1 for results and 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 may go over your lawn two or three times on each visit 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.
  2. Product is everything with our Premier Program. Not a liquid fertilizer and not just another granular but a custom blended fertilizer. We use the top sources of nutrients in this program.
  3. We include micronutrients to resolve any soil deficiencies and strengthen the plants health to the fullest. It is a superior product over most of the competition. Less leaching, burning potential, volatilization, and superb controlled release of nutrients up to 12 weeks or more.
  4. We provide 5 lbs. of nitrogen per 1000 sq.ft per season as recommended by the U-Mass Extension service for soils in New England. Many other companies use 4 lbs. of nitrogen per 1000 square feet. This is almost an additional service compared to most!
  5. Our Premier customer service is outstanding and is rated one of the best countrywide. (As stated above)
  6.  Personal estimates every time. From soil test to recommendations we are there for you.
  7. As a simple courtesy, we pre-notify every customer personally before every service. We want to hear your needs. Companies sometimes will pre-notify their customers at their request.
  8. All technicians are pesticide licensed and trained.
