Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid-1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.
Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants—such as crickets, ants, and grazing neighbors—shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
With the exception of the Englewood location, all City Bark locations provide self-wash tubs for expedient DIY doggie dunking (about $10 for 30 minutes without shampoo, $11.50 with shampoo; rates vary slightly by location). These specially designed tubs ensure safe and easy dog baths, pleasant for person and pup alike. City Bark provides numerous accoutrements to make the slather sessions go swimmingly, including waterproof aprons, a variety of doggie shampoos, towels, and dryers for preventing post-bath shake-spray. After donning the apron, place your pal in a waist-high tub, specially designed for safe and simple bath time that beats crouching on the tiles of a home lavatory while your dog writhes and splashes, ruining freshly acquired lavender soap angels and terrifying the neighbors with plaintive howling.
When not busy saving buildings as a suburban firefighter, Lawn Masters' manager Tim Urban keeps them beautiful with commercial and residential landscaping services. Tim and his cohort of expert lawn-maintenance pros can stop by weekly to mow, edge, and trim lawns and control weeds from running rampant and taunting trees that are helplessly rooted into the ground. Equipped with a Ryan Lawnaire 28, they can also seasonally aerate lawns to quench roots with much-needed oxygen, and fertilize lawns to keep blades lush and vibrant.

Green Works Lawn and Leaf lavishes yards with natural, organic, and sustainable TLC. To conserve fuel and avoid noise pollution, owner Drew Hojnacki favors rakes over leaf blowers, shovels over snow blowers, and garden hoes over Roomba rototillers. Aeration ($35–$50, depending on lot size) loosens uptight dirt, and an application of OMRI organic fertilizer ($35–$50) feeds hungry turf and soil without environmental-indigestion-causing chemicals. Untidy terraces opt for a general cleanup ($65–$150), and shrubs seek out a pruning ($10–$30 per shrub) before an important interview or after a bad break-up.
