Chris & Tom from Fairfield say…

 

Dear Ryan and Crew:

 “Just wanted to thank you all for doing a fabulous job with the landscaping around our home. We really appreciate all of your suggestions and input. You were able to listen to what we wanted and add your professional ideas to create picture perfect atmosphere. Thank you for continuing to add onto the job when we asked you to do more! We absolutely love the steps curving around to the backyard and your suggestion of filling the entire back from the deck to the walkway with the beautiful river pebbles was great. We will not hesitate to call on you again for any future landscaping projects. Thank you all for your hard work, dedication to professionalism and completing the job in a timely manner”

Choosing the right landscape contractor

Paver Walkway Installation Hanover, PAChoosing the right landscape contractor will help you get the best value for your investment. Not all contractors are the same. The contractor that you use can greatly impact how your money is spent on these projects. Just because you choose the lowest-cost option in the beginning, doesn’t mean you will be better off.

 

Choosing incorrectly initially can mean even more future costs and aggravation. Here is a list of suggestions to consider when choosing a landscape service for a landscaping or hardscaping project:

Available references

Good reputation

Reliable and capable of handling your project

Qualified and sufficiently trained staff

Portfolio

Licensed and carries workers’ compensation and general liability insurance

Professional staff

A company that returns your calls in a timely manner

Here is one landscape project that we installed last year that really sticks out to us. The customer was considering options for their landscape, walk, & yard. We educated them on the process and the benefits of the outcome. On the proposal they made their decision to go with our company. We installed the new landscape design, paver walkway, edgers, & renovated there entire front lawn! After installation the customer was so grateful. They greeted me with a smile and said “Thank you, Thank you, I can’t thank you enough.” They mentioned that other neighbors in their neighborhood were giving them great compliments on it as well. They then told us that another neighbor in the neighborhood had work done by a different landscape company and spent nearly double what they paid just to have a small front lawn reinstalled. Unfortunately we hear this more times than not. So remember make sure you do a screening before hiring the right contractor.

Winter paver patio care…

Ryan’s Landscaping Winter Paver Care TipsHanover Paver Patio Snow Removal Care - Ryan's Landscaping

With winter weather here Ryan’s Landscaping would like to take a minute to give some tips on how to care for your paver patio to ensure that it looks beautiful come spring. Whether we completed a project for you or you had someone else do the work, these are general rules that apply to all.

 

De-icers are the enemy of concrete pavers

Regardless if you have a tumbled paver driveway or a beautiful prest paver sidewalk; salt will destroy your investment. Try to refrain from throwing any kind of salt products on concrete pavers. We suggest using kitty litter in place of salt. Will it melt the ice? Probably not, but it will give you some traction for walking across it during the winter and it is easy to clean up come spring.

Sealers

While sealing of concrete pavers is not typically necessary, it does add a layer of protection for it during the winter months. Does this mean that we recommend using deicers since your paver patio is not sealed? Absolutely not! However, if you have a concrete paver driveway you may want to give it a shot of sealer in the fall. You are constantly dragging salt from the street across your driveway during the winter months and this may help to prevent some issues.

Shoveling Snow, Plows, and Snow Blowers 

When Shoveling snow off sidewalks, we recommend using a plastic shovel. Metal shovels have a tendency to scratch pavers and would destroy the seal on sealed patios. These damages are hard and costly to fix. For driveways we recommend using snow blowers which have shoes to protect the pavers. Set the depth gauges up 1/8”-1/4” to help protect from scratching.

Sweeping and Cleaning

While this is not absolutely necessary it cannot hurt. If you get a nice warm winter day after the snow has melted don’t be afraid to give your paver patio a good sweeping if deicers were applied to them. This will help get those products off your concrete to prevent unnecessary damage.

IF YOU DO USE SALT ON YOUR PATIO… BE SURE TO USE ICE MELT OR A SAFE SALT FOR YOUR CONCRETE PAVERS. IT SHOULD SAY ON THE BAG – SAFE FOR CONCRETE.

THE PROS OF SOD INSTALLATION

Your new sod will give your yard instant grass after installation…

Sod Installation Hanover PA | Gettysburg PA | Lay Sod | Install Sod 17331 & 17325 The installation of sod is a popular way to establish a new lawn. Most of the sod purchased is a blend of different Kentucky bluegrass varieties or a mixture of other common turfgrass types (i.e., fine fescue, perennial ryegrass, tall fescue). When installed correctly on properly amended soil, in the appropriate sunlight conditions and where correct maintenance is provided, a sod lawn can be a valuable part of your landscape.

Instant Lawn

Sod turns a bare patch of ground into a grass-covered lawn as soon as you finish installing it. You get the instant satisfaction of having a green yard. A seeded lawn requires several weeks before the grass grows in. The area looks patchy as the grass first starts to grow. A seed-planted lawn is often covered with straw or similar materials to protect the seeds, leaving the yard looking unattractive. If you don’t have the patience to wait for a dense lawn grown from seed, sod is a faster alternative.

Less Irrigation

Once installed, sod requires less maintenance than grass seed. Sod needs regular irrigation to keep it moist until it becomes firmly established, but the sod typically won’t dry out as fast as a grass-seeded area. A seeded lawn sometimes needs four or more watering sessions per day to keep the ground moist, depending on the weather conditions. Sod usually only needs to be watered twice daily. The less frequent irrigation saves on water and reduces your workload in caring for the new grass.

Faster Use

Because the grass is already grown, a sodded yard is ready for use faster than a seeded lawn. The young grass blades that emerge from seeds are delicate and susceptible to damage. Walking on the lawn and using it for regular activities like playing or entertaining may result in trampled or dead grass. Sod has a head start in growth. The roots usually become established in the lawn in two to four weeks. While light activity is still best in the first four to six weeks, sod is generally ready for use sooner than a seeded lawn.

Soil Protection

Grass seeds rest on top of the soil, leaving them susceptible to the wind. Until the seeds germinate and widespread grass growth is established, the soil is also more likely to blow away. Because sod is a thick mat of established grass, it covers the soil completely, keeping it in place. The covered soil also means you’ll carry less dirt and mud into the house when walking across the lawn.
