Dan and Dana, the D's of D & D Professional Mowing, have been buzzing local soil coifs since 2004. Thanks to the business' lawn-owner-friendly practices, multi-day jobs keep a consistent crew, so clients have time to get to know them, and they have time to learn the route through the hedge maze. Prices depend entirely on the size of the job, but the average lawn runs around $30–$50, including edging and leaf-blowing the sidewalk and driveway. The flora-fashioners will happily give a free price estimate for other services, such as mulching ($80–$400 on average), garden-tilling ($50–$100 on average), or tree-debris removal ($50–$200 on average).
Chartreuse ribbons encircle a bouquet of pink roses and other delicate, unifying accents elevate My Secret Garden’s collection of blooms to gift-worthy realms. They also helped earn the shop its status as Inside Columbia’s Best Place to Buy Flowers in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Florists happily work with patrons to construct custom arrangements with the shop's 40–60 varieties of fresh flowers that may include exotic blooms from Hawaii or locally grown wildflowers. Additionally, they can enhance bouquets with add-ons such as chocolates and balloons. They also deliver their floral masterpieces to homes, businesses, or beehives in Columbia.
With green thumbs and a passion for creating a more sustainable environment, the certified arborists at Cevet Tree Service specialize in tree-related services such as trimming, stump removal, and disease diagnosis. When the team pares down a tree growing too close to power lines or giving mischievous cats a free ride to the roof, it adheres to the pruning guidelines set forth by the International Society of Arboriculture. The outfit also performs duties outside the arboreal arena, such as lawn maintenance and snow removal.
For more than 120 years, Busch’s Florist has dispatched flowers across the country. The family-owned company recruits its own drivers for local deliveries, and entrusts all other orders to upstanding industry partners. Regardless of destination, each order contains the freshest flowers. Florists arrange blossoms for traditional occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, but also maintain a holiday calendar that denotes other possible motivations, such as sister's day or third Tuesday of the month.
Amax Maintenance beautifies homes inside and out. The team can target home exteriors, mowing lawns, laying mulch, and landscaping. Or they can perform full interior makeovers, removing trash, and executing a series of general repairs to get apartments ready for new renters. And just because something's invisible doesn't mean Amax's team can't handle it. Its workers can remove odors and evict bacteria from the air with quick, efficient ozone-generator treatments.
All plants are gathered from native Missouri fauna that have consented to have their clippings or seeds donated to science, and are grown in high-quality potting soil that does not contain peat moss, which can make it more difficult for plants to adapt to their new homes. For shipped orders, Missouri Wildflowers Nursery guarantees that your plants or seeds will arrive in good condition, and that all species are true to their name and professed veganism.
