With more than 500 locations in 40 states, the Lawn Doctor franchise vaunts core care programs that cover everything from shrub care and pest control to natural, synthetic, and organic lawn fertilization. A free evaluation of residential and commercial plots uncovers the distinct characteristics of the area, such as soil type, weather patterns, and annual rate of pink-flamingo theft. After technicians spread seeds with patented Turf Tamer equipment, home or business owners can solicit color-free treatments to coax away weeds or special pesticides to stave off fire ants, millipedes, and Hollywood movie producers scouting locations for another FernGully installment.
Masters Professional Services’ owner, Dwayne Robert, was ahead of the energy-efficiency curve. He entered the industry more than 15 years ago and has seen insulation techniques evolve and others flop, such as stapling plastic sandwich bags over holes. Currently, he and his staff have a range of tools and methods at their disposal to keep homes energy efficient. Their methods include blown-in, roll, and batt insulation, as well as thermography. Throughout his professional career, Dwayne has also learned government cost-saving tactics, which he happily passes on to his customers. In addition to these energy- and money-saving practices, Masters Professional Services offers nonchemical pest control, HVAC services, and attic and crawl space restoration.
One of the largest nurseries in northwest Florida, Floral Tree Gardens surrounds its customers with a land-grown sea of lush foliage and vibrant blooms. Row upon row of the outdoor gardens are painted with yellow daisies and purple cornflowers, and loquat and avocado trees cast shadows over shoppers. Plant purchases may be complemented with garden accents such as clay pots and metal butterflies, which, unlike their living counterparts, follow orders to sit and stay. Floral Tree Gardens' stock changes with the seasons; its facility brims with pumpkins in the fall and poinsettias in the winter. It also stocks fauna at an onsite pond, where visitors can fish for bass or pygmy submarines.

The exterminators at The Mosquito Authority keep backyard barbecues and front-yard frisbee games free of the high-pitched buzzing of the swarming scourge. The team deploys anti-mosquito measures such as barrier sprays, misting systems, and special event sprays, each of which involves applying an environmentally friendly, EPA-approved solution to plants around the property. The solution kills off all current mosquitoes and prevents new ones from invading for up to 21 days, but won't cause health issues for pets, children, or mailmen who nestle under the hedges for a midday nap.
