Getting prepared for extensive lawn restoration and core lawn aeration on properties of all shapes and sizes begins in August. The lawn restoration process and methods take on many forms. Aside from our Basic 5 Lawn Application program which is detailed on our web site, ingramlawncare.com , we also preform a number of extensive lawn restoration programs. The first step for us is to carefully evaluate the condition of the lawn looking at such things as: the soil ph, sun and shade patterns, type and amount of weeds, types of grass, drainage, insects, organic matter, stones, etc. From this evaluation we can determine a very specific game plan on how each lawn gets restored. Often times in August we will accelerate killing off the weeds in preparation of a core lawn aeration process and over-seeding we normally do in September. Just before the lawn aeration process we may add organic material, top soil, etc. then over-seed with a variety of specific high quality grass seed blends. Quality grass seed and the quality of the aeration job will help produce quality results. If a landscape contractor uses lower quality grade grass seed the results will show the following spring and summer.
Lawn restoration and core lawn aeration programs need the full cooperation of the homeowner. The best results are achieved by keeping the newly seeded lawn well watered for an extensive period after it is seeded. Ingram Lawn & Garden services a wider area than our normal lawn cutting service area for lawn restoration and core lawn aeration programs. Typically, we service Ambler, Blue Bell, Lafayette Hill, North Wales, Lansdale, Lower Gwyneed, and a few more surrounding communities. If you are looking to have your lawn restored and aerated properly give us a call @267-844-3733 and we can visit your lawn for an evaluation. Because there is only a small window of weather opportunity to do these lawn restoration we normally get booked early. Lawn restoration and core lawn aeration is our business and we believe its a process that requires a complete evaluation of your lawns current condition, how it is currently taken care of (both lawn cutting & lawn applications) and a detailed process of how to manage it for better health moving forward. We will offer suggestions on the best techniques on how to care for your lawn for optimum results. For lawn restoration, core lawn aeration and lawn applications in Ambler, Blue Bell, Fort Washington, Lansdale, Lafayette Hill, North Wales or any of the surrounding communities give Ingram Lawn & Garden a call.
Here we go for the opening of the 2016 season. We are just a few weeks away from applying our first lawn application of the season and beginning our spring landscape and lawn cleanups. The first lawn application is important and sets the tone for the rest of the season for lawn restoration and lawn maintenance. The application we use is made up of mostly pre-emergent weed control with a light slow release fertilizer for the grass. Between now and the time we apply the first application we are just waiting for the optimum weather conditions. The daily temperature needs to be above 45 degrees which may only be a few weeks away. We plan to begin spring cleanups at that time, which include picking up all the fallen sticks, branches and remaining leaves and trim and prune some of the shrubs and small trees. We also will apply hardwood mulch which includes pulling any existing weeds and applying a weed control product like Preen to each landscape bed before we apply the new mulch. Actual lawn cutting should start in mid-April. We are trying to prep all the properties first before we begin lawn cutting. We have a number of properties which are designated for aggressive lawn restoration this year. If you live in Ambler, Blue Bell, Fort Washington, Wyndoor, Lafayette Hill, North Wales and Lansdale give Ingram Lawn & Garden a call. We will talk about our lawn application and lawn restoration process as well as any of our other landscape contractor services.

Ingram Lawn & Garden begins construction of several large landscape contractor renovations underway within their serving area of Montgomery County and Bucks County, Pa. Each landscape renovation begins with the overall landscape design drawings which we design and furnish. The landscape concept drawing becomes the roadmap for the future landscape work. The first task is the full landscape or sectional landscape deconstruction. This includes: taking down trees, tree stumps, pruning large trees, removing bushes, bush stumps, removal of existing plantings which at times are planted into a holding landscape bed for use within the landscape at a different location within the landscape. These areas are cleaned up free of weeds and any other previous landscape material. Sometimes town permits are required (drawings created & submitted for approval) and underground services are located so we know where to dig. Next in the process are the construction and installation of hardscapes (patio’s, walls, pathways, stones or boulders, and drainage pipes. Often times we are removing the old hardscapes and preparing for the new. Prep work for lightning, sprinkler systems, and many of the other not seen work is completed. All the landscape beds are defined and soil prep work begins for future planting. It’s important to try and achieve quality high nutrient soil for plant health and success. All of this work is often scheduled over a period of months so the property stays in transition during this time but remains clean and orderly. New landscape plants are often installed depending on size first. We want to plant the largest plants first. These larger plantings require larger holes and sometimes heavy equipment to bring the plants in and place them in the hole. Landscape renovation is for us a lot of work but the best part of what we do. We get to take the vision of the homeowner of their landscape property and make it come to life. Once the installation is completed our job does not stop. We maintain the landscape so that it stays looking as nice as it did from day one and the plants remain watered and healthy. If your looking for a landscape contractor, landscape service, lawn care service, for a small, medium or large landscape or lawn renovation give Ingram Lawn & Garden a call. We typically work in Ambler, Blue Bell, Lafayette Hill, Jenkintown, North Wales, Ft. Washington, Lansdale, Gwynedd, Flourtown, Wyndmoor, Harleysville, Pa. and other surrounding areas. If you need help with lawn renovations like lawn aerating and over-seeding call for an estimate and added to our fall schedule. Work on lawn aerations begins very soon.
As part of our lawn restoration process core lawn aerations and over-seeding in Ambler, Blue, Bell, North Wales, Lafayette Hill, Fort Washington and Dresher, Pa. which typically begin right around now are being held up due to the weather. We need lower temperatures both during the day and at night and more moisture. The aeration portion would likely go OK although the ground is very dry but the grass seed needs consistent moisture to germinate and right now we just are not receiving any rain. The forecast at the end of this week is expected to return back to “typical” temperature’s and moisture for this time of the year and if so, we will be rolling out the lawn aerator and loading the grass seed. We have plenty of properties to aerate and over-seed in Ambler, Fort Washington, Blue Bell, Dresher, North Wales and Lafayette Hill, Pa. areas. We also aerate and over-seed in surrounding towns Lansdale, Horsham, East Norriton, Pa. areas and will likely add each of those towns for lawn cutting service next season. If your on our list for core lawn aeration and over-seeding this fall we will be in touch with you shortly on preparations. For lawn aerating and over-seeding to work properly the ground must be kept moist for the following three weeks at least. Grass seed needs time to germinate so lower day and night temperatures will help the ground retain moisture longer. If your interested in core lawn aerating send us a note or give us a call @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 267-844-3733. You can also visit our web site @ ingramlawncare.com.
One of the best things you can do for your lawn’s health each year is core lawn aeration and over-seeding. Lawn aeration loosens compacted soil to allow more oxygen into the soil. Over seeding your lawn with the correct blended seed mix (for sun or shaded areas) will help thicken the lawn in the fall but you will more likely see better results the following spring. The preparation of lawn aeration and over-seeding is important as well as the execution and care for your lawn afterwards. We are very careful to insure your lawn gets cut just before we come in and once we aerate and over-seed that is just when the real work begins afterwards. Typically, your lawn does not get cut for at least 2-3 weeks afterwards and the ground needs to stay moist (not saturated) during that span as well so the grass seed germinates. Even after that span of about three weeks you cannot let your lawn dry out for too long as the newly germinated seeds need good moisture to grow well. The lower over night temperatures in the fall will hold the moisture in the ground longer which reduces the homeowners work load. Getting thick lush lawn takes some effort by us and the homeowner but with a little bit of effort positive results will happen. If you aerate and seed several years in a row you will find the best result for a nice thick lush lawn. Thick lush healthy lawns are much easier to care for. One note, you still need to maintain your lawn with seasonal fertilizer and herbicides. Weed seed finds the weakest link (bare spots) in your lawn and quickly grows so thick lush lawns reduce the likelihood of that happening.
This landscape season we have expanded our landscape contractor design and installation service business. Every week separate from our lawn cutting crew a landscape crew head off to various landscape projects in various stages of development. Often we are working on existing property management customers to freshen up their landscapes. This season we have dramatically expanded the traditional landscape design and installation service we offer. We have undertaken small landscape improvements and designed and installed complete landscape property makeovers. This fall we will begin, continue or complete a variety of small to mid-sized landscape projects. These landscape projects range in price from $1000.00+ to $250,000.00+ all depending on scope of work. Our specialty is to manage the complete landscape and lawn property makeover process. We become the general contractor of the outdoor property. We design and install all the landscape work (gardens, trees, shrubs, flowers, etc.), clear the property of all the existing plants, walkways, patios, shrubs, trees, and re-grade where needed. Any service we do not do directly we manage. We select and manage the sub-contractors so all work is properly completed to our landscape concept plan and within budget. We are the one-stop service solution for lawn and landscapes. We insure all utilities are marked and permits are pulled where and when needed. Our customers put their trust in us and more specifically Marty Ingram. Marty directly manages all landscape projects from concept to execution. He likely will be the only person our customers deal with directly.
