As with every service, the difference is in the details. Teed & Brown follows the “Integrated Pest Management” or IPM philosophy of lawn care. This method is designed to address the underlying issues affecting the lawn and its overall health. By relieving soil compaction, aerating the lawn, reducing the thatch layer, adding appropriate varieties of grass to the individual lawn, adjusting pH and providing advice on proper mowing and watering, we can create optimal conditions for healthy, strong grass, thereby reducing the dependence on chemicals.
Where chemicals are needed we abide by the highest lawn care standards in Connecticut. They are used in quantities just sufficient to get the problem under control. We don’t try to eradicate every insect from a lawn. We do try to reduce the populations of problem insects to a level where the lawn can withstand them without visible stress. In following this philosophy, we use only the highest quality fertilizers and pest control products.
