The skilled stem systemizers at Flowers and More sweeten the smells of courtship with red-rose compilations and other exotic bloomers. Woo spouses or a winsome vase with a dozen, long-stemmed roses, a 12 set of fragrant love buds nested in crisp paper, draped in tangles of baby’s breath, and tied with colorful ribbon. Or, opt for other colorful, fresh-cut arrangements, which vary from week to week but often include daisies, carnations, lilies, peonies, tulips, daffodils, and irises. While not included in today's Groupon, Flowers and More also carries complete lines of potted plants and gift baskets to suit every produce-appropriate occasion.
In 2001, James Daily brought his vision to fruition, starting a lawn-care company that serves the diverse and varied needs of home and business owners throughout the region. What began as a one-crew operation built around mowing and basic grass maintenance quickly grew, expanding its staff with a licensed pest-control tech, regimented crews of landscapers, and herds of grass-grazing wildebeests that operate throughout the tri-state area. Lawn experts care for residential and commercial green spaces throughout the year with season-specific treatments, such as springtime lawn aeration to reduce soil compaction. Other services include autumn leaf removal and wintertime ice management.
