With a fragrant host of photosynthesizing wares, De La Flor Gardens delights guests with colorful arrangements and occasion-appropriate projects. Eschew singing telegrams or carrier pigeons trained in interpretive dance for a colorful explosion of sentiment corralled into a carefully arranged collection of flowers. The Appreciation bouquet intersperses white and purple blossoms among eye-catching pink roses ($44.99), perfect for expressing gratitude to a mom, teacher, or friend. Or, show off your romantic side with the Token of My Love bouquet ($49.95), which nestles yellow roses, hydrangeas, and other brightly pigmented blooms into a charming wicker basket that may be repurposed for a picnic or as a storage bin for smaller, even more charming wicker baskets. Aside from its beautiful blossom bundles, De La Flor Gardens orchestrates larger floral-reliant projects such as landscaping, wedding ceremonies, and the annual running of the bees with an experienced staff and wide array of choice stems and products. A personable team of garden enthusiasts may be deployed to re-mulch, trim, and fertilize lackluster lawns ($300), whereas bridal parties can adorn empty hands with bouquets perfect for bridesmaids ($60), the mother of the bride ($35), or a ring-bearing miniature horse.
Like a community college's brochure, Greenlands has something for everybody. The boutique store stocks high-end cosmetics, skincare products, and vitamins that span the alphabet and then some. As customers hop from aisle to aisle, they'll stumble upon a wide selection of well-loved household goods including Pantene shampoo, diapers, cold medicine, Samsonite luggage, and electronics. A more exotic offering, yoga mats beckon to tense limbs from the tidy shelves. Children's toys beg for the attention of passing toddlers, and Ray-Ban sunglasses stylishly wait to shield eyes from the bright sun.

Good for both humans and animals, Critter Control has been using humane wildlife-removal and management techniques since 1982. When bats, birds, raccoons, skunks, ducks, or other creatures invade living spaces, they gently swoop them up and relocate them to their natural homesteads. The crew's experience also extends to pest control, which keeps homes and businesses free of sugar ants, spiders, wasps, box elders, earwigs, silverfish, beetles, and more.
Though Florida spans nearly 60,000 square miles, Jane Thompson manages to fit most of it onto 10 acres. Throughout her plant nursery, Thompson—who claims certification from and affiliation with such agrarian societies as the Florida Association of Native Nurseries—and her team tend to more than 60 native species that range from beach-dune sunflowers to coffee trees. By specializing in these native species, Indian Trails' growers supply property owners with plants that readily adapt to Florida's climate so that they thrive with little to no irrigation. Thompson also helps homeowners plan their landscapes through onsite demonstration plantings or design consultations, in which she offers essentials such as plant selection, construction of retaining walls, and transition of plants from the nursery to preschool.
Beneath the tall palm trees that dot Amelia's SmartyPlants' outdoor garden lies a vast stock of lush plants and vibrant blooms handpicked by an expert staff. The 2-acre independent gardening center amasses plant species both familiar and unusual, helping homeowners beautify their yards and the environment with native florals, ornamental shrubs and trees, and colorful glass garden art that adds color and whimsy to natural plots.
