A Cut Above's green-blade-curators can enrich grass with Green Prairie's First Prize fertilizer, which adds iron and nutrients to help enhance yard appearance and make other lawns brown with envy ($35–$65). Todd and his team can also assist with tree and shrub pruning, as well as flowerbed design, creation, and maintenance ($35 per hour).

The family of gardeners at Green Thumb Lawn Care mixes a special blend of fertilizer, which has helped them nourish saplings, flower beds, and lush, verdant lawns since 2005. Among their beautification techniques, aeration opens channels for nutrients to flow into the soil and be absorbed by grass and tree roots, and edging sharpens the appearance of walkways by clearing scraggly overgrowth and long-haired hippies from their margins. The team revs up their mowers on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for their lawn-maintenance programs, or can make a special visit to rip out a tree stump or give gardens gone to seed a seasonal makeover.
