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.
LawnTech Enterprises, is a locally owned, family operated landscape and lawn care company that has proudly served the Denver community for over 33 years. Started by Greg Hegarty in 1977, LawnTech has since grown into a business serving more than 1200 residential and commercial customers in the Denver Metro area.
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.
In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
Though the aroma of fresh-cut flowers has drifted from its doors for more than 60 years, Earles Loveland Floral & Gifts has not been quite the same since 1993, when United Floral Industry School graduate Elizabeth Parker took charge of operations. The time-honored flower and gift shop has blossomed under her guidance, experiencing a meteoric rise in popularity that recently culminated in its winning the Reporter-Herald’s Reader's Choice award for best local florist in 2011.
Parker went to school for floral wedding design, and it’s no secret that her field of study has become one of the shop’s strong suits. Along with her dedicated team of florists, she can turn any wedding venue into a lush garden of bridal bouquets, corsages, and elegant reception centerpieces. The shop's everyday bouquets hardly suffer from comparison, bundling together natural, seasonal flowers in arrangements available for pickup or delivery by a well-trained swarm of bees. Before whisking away a bouquet of grab 'n' go flowers, peruse Earles's eclectic selection of gifts and household accouterments, which includes flower-print tote bags, beaded jewelry, and gel candles.
