Here we are again as the first seasonal lawn application time approaches. If you seen companies already applying their first product it’s not likely going to be very effective. Seasonal lawn applications must be applied at the right time, temperature and weather conditions for each application. They are manufactured and blended to preform their best when certain conditions are met with the soil, weeds (including weed seed), grass, temperature and moisture. The first lawn application generally should be applied when the daytime soil temperature is 45 degrees or slightly above. We were fast approaching those temperatures until Mother Nature stepped in and froze the ground again and provided snow. The good news is the snow will increase the moisture content in the soil when thawed which helps the grass and plantings in your landscape.
Our Basic 5 Lawn Application Program is designed and more importantly applied to have a maximum impact on a variety of weeds and provide food for the grass. Each lawn application is a unique blend of products for that specific time of the season and must be applied at eh correct time. Our middle application is specifically applied for grub control. This application is normally applied in late June. Seasonal lawn application (weed & feed) programs are a must for the long term health of your lawn. They are designed to slowly release fertilizer to help feed and thicken your grass while attacking a variety of weeds throughout the growing season. Their performance should be measured year to year not month to month. Normally, it takes years for a lawn to be properly restored. The only seeding you should consider for the spring is small bare spots for spot seeding. All lawn over-seeding and complete lawn restorations are preformed in the fall. If you need some help getting your lawn back healthy and looking its best give Ingram Lawn & Garden a call. Need some help controlling insects like ticks and mosquitos on your property we take care of that as well. We service a variety of towns including: Ambler, Blue Bell, North Wales, Lansdale, Harleysville, Kulpsville, Lafayette Hill, Wyndmoor, Fort Washington, Dresher, Flourtown and a variety of other surrounding communities. Lawn application season is just a few weeks away.
Several lawn care and lawn applications tips for the spring for the best health and care of your lawn. It’s important to know when you fertilize, apply herbicides for weed control while weeds have not yet begun to germinate and how moist to keep your lawn. Generally, we apply our first lawn care application when the average daily soil temperature is above 50 degrees for at least three days in a row. So, when you see lawn care application companies spraying to applying their product in colder temperatures you can bet you are not getting your money’s worth. Crabgrass is also best applied when the forsythia bushes have not yet completed their yellow blooms. When the bushes begin to bloom we release trucks to get that early crabgrass control & pre-emergence herbicide applied. The rate of application for each of these products will vary for us depending on the current health of the lawn and what may have happened in the fall. If we had seeded the property the fall we may switch to a spray herbicide application to control certain weeds. watering for your lawn should not start until spring has almost passed if not later. Let Mother Nature run her course.
Here is a few other spring tips to help your lawn in the early spring.

Seasonal lawn application and lawn restoration programs at Ingram Lawn & Garden is something we pride ourselves in completing correctly. Basic seasonal lawn applications programs or weed and feed application programs from Ingram Lawn & Garden include five basic applications. Most lawn application companies have so many properties to apply product they often miss one of the most basic steps. Each lawn application should be applied for maximum effectiveness when Mother Nature allows you. In the spring the soil temperature should normally be above 45 degrees. Often you will see lawn application companies spreading or spraying product when the ground is still frozen. The first two and last two applications of the season generally include a fertilizer and some blend of herbicides. Our middle application from our Basic 5 Program now includes a grub application. Grubs have been spreading every season for the last few years so we have made this application mandatory. The timing of every application is critical to each of their success. If your lawn is cut a day or two after the application you have essentially wasted part of your money.
Lawn restorations and core lawn aeration should only be completed in the fall when temperatures and weather conditions are ideal. We only over-seed in the fall for best possible results. The last few years we have started preparation for lawn restorations and core lawn aeration in August but the actual lawn aeration and over-seeding does not take place until middle or late September at the earliest.
Get the best possible value of your seasonal lawn application program by choosing a company that applies each application within the two or three week window Mother Nature allows each year. Each year these dates of applications change slightly as weather patterns for each season change. Ingram Lawn & Garden supplements our Basic 5 Lawn Application Programs with additional lawn and garden grub applications, crabgrass control applications, specialty weed applications, liquid spray lawn applications, organic lawn applications, and outdoor inspect mosquito and tick control programs.

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.

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.

With the cold weather we have had so far this winter the question for us is when is the first lawn care service application of the season? Believe it or not I saw a popular lawn care company today putting down their first lawn application…..on top of the snow! Hard to believe but true. Fortunately, for our customers we try and provide prudent and correct service. Our first lawn application is (as it should for all) tied to ground temperature and average daily outside temperatures. The first application will be applied when the soil warms ups and unfreezes. Outside daily temperature’s need to be above 45-50 degrees. That could happen soon or in another month or more who knows. We always try and time each lawn application when the weather conditions are just right for that specific lawn treatment then we scramble to get them all completed. When you see our truck, crew or lawn sign at your property you will know the time and weather conditions are correct for your lawn treatment application. If you have not signed up for our Five Step Lawn application program you should. We’re pretty good at getting your lawn to green up and improve but it takes a few years to fix properly. It likely took only a few years to have your lawn be full of bare spots and weeds but it takes several years to fix. Let me know if you want your property added for lawn application service.
