Inch’s Natural Fertilization and Pest Control transforms Inch’s Landscaping into a full-service outdoor living company. Now, an Inch’s outdoor living space consists of not only beautiful hardscaping, trees, shrubs and flowers, but also thick, dark green and healthy lawns that are environmentally-friendly.


The owners of Inch’s Natural Fertilization & Pest Control live outdoors and know you do, too. Proprietors Luke Zimmerman, John Inch, Jr., Jeffrey Inch, and Brennan Inch developed Inch’s Natural to provide outdoorsmen and women with environmentally friendly and sustainable lawn care and pest control solutions. Inch’s Natural is proud to provide superior results at competitive prices to our customers.


Inch’s Natural Fertilization and Pest Control is rooted in sound agronomics, the pursuit of being the best stewards possible for our environment. For this reason, we have developed custom fertilizer blends that reduce impact and keep the nutrients where you want them, in the soil; slowly feeding the lawn and its roots. Even though it costs us more to purchase these products while still maintaining competitive prices, we believe it is worth every penny to play our part on your property reducing its environmental impact as much as possible while creating amazing outdoor living spacing for your family to enjoy.


Given our love for living outdoors, Inch’s Natural Fertilization and Pest promises to overlook chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Our mission is to be better stewards of the environment through the selection of products that will not only enhance lawns, but in a manner that is safe for your outdoor living space.

“I just wanted to reach out to you and comment on how well my lawn is doing. It’s nice and green and I’m noticing sprouting of new grass in areas I could never get grass to grow before. I am overly pleased with the results I am noticing by only using your services for a few times after I had a previous vendor for many years. I am looking forward to next season. I’ll just take this time you wish you and your team happy holidays in the coming months and keep up the exceptional work!”

“For years I’ve spent the money to fertilize and seed my lawns, but after seeing the video that was posted regarding Inch’s Natural, I decided to give it a try. In less than one season, my lawn is in the best shape ever. The great service and knowledge of the staff is second to none. My neighbors now ask me what I did to make the lawn look so nice. I highly recommend Inch’s Natural services to anyone looking for an awesome lawn!”

“We are very pleased with the yard this year. It’s the best it has ever looked. After three other lawn services in 14 years it’s really nice to see improvement and employees who are conscientious about their work.”

Tom and Judy Harbaugh

“The owner of a large estate I manage expects his property to be in pristine condition. He prefers only the most reputable and reliable companies to work on his property. I trust Inch’s Natural Fertilization and Pest Control to provide the superior quality work that the property demands. Luke custom blends fertilizer specifically for the property to help it thrive.

I will depend exclusively on Inch’s Natural Fertilization and Pest Control for all of the estate’s lawn care needs.”

Andy Mikos, Estate Manager

“From looking at our lawn, you would never know that our house is a fairly-recent construction. We are proud to entertain in our lush, green, healthy outdoor living space. The service from Luke at Inch’s Natural never interferes with our entertaining. The office staff calls before treatment and arrives at the promised time. The natural treatment is also family and pet-friendly. We recommend Inch’s Natural to anyone with a new construction who is looking to establish a beautiful yard.”

Keith and Alison Brandstedter

“Living in a rural setting with a ton of exposure to pests, we didn’t think it was possible to get control of the ticks and mosquitoes surrounding our property. When we started seeing ticks on our kids and animals we called Inch’s Natural. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable. The office staff is phenomenal, they always call ahead! All of the team members have experienced backgrounds and the results prove it. Since then we haven’t seen any ticks on our family!”

Alli McCurdy
“I am really impressed with Luke and the company. I have high standards and Inch’s Natural has lived up to every one of these. Luke came and met with me the very same day we contacted him and continues to show a genuine interest. The pricing is fair, the knowledge is incredible, and the quality can’t be beat. My yard looked as good as a golf course after the rain! The relationship we’ve built has been amazing.”
Tim Asbury

“We liked the idea of a ‘natural’ company and using a local business. When we moved into our new home our yard needed a lot of work. Everything that Luke told us would happen is happening, and we are so excited to see our yard improving and looking great! The customer service is amazing. Luke responds in record time and is extremely knowledgeable, informative and friendly. The neighbors are noticing and we are constantly reassured that we made the right decision with Inch’s Natural.”

Tom and Carol Benjamin
“Inch’s Natural has been nothing short of spectacular! We purchased our new home last July and there was more than enough work that needed to be done to our lawn. Within 30 minutes of calling Inch’s Natural one of the owners was at my front door and started work the next day! Our lawn is a work in progress but we have a top-notch specialist working on it in phases and we couldn’t be happier to date with the results. My wife and I are so impressed with this company that we have started working with them on a brand new landscaping project for our home. If you’re looking for a company to provide top notch service, is responsive to your needs, has tremendous attention to detail, and extremely competitive pricing then you need to look no further than Inch’s Natural! You won’t be disappointed!!”
