The yard specialists at GrassPlus & Associates aerate earth-hair without the use of chemicals by way of a core plug aerator that opens up the thatch for breathing, seeding, and hiding family heirlooms. In the warm summer months, pasture primpers use a high-phosphorus, high-potash fertilizer by Lesco to nourish the soil from which picnic-friendly blades spring. When the temperature cools off, a high-nitrogen fertilizer is used instead. Those who opt for the overseeding service following aeration and fertilization see their turf bolstered by rye grass in the warm seasons and a rye-fescue mix in the cooler months.

JT's Landscaping & Lawn Care founder Jimmy Tompkins cut his first lawn as a professional landscaper in 1997, when he was still in high school. With a truck loaned to him by his parents, he went door-to-door in the Raleigh area and offered his lawn-manicuring services. Soon, his clients asked him to handle more complicated work, and a few years later, his one-man operation birthed a landscaping business composed of experienced team members.

Today, he and his staff install and maintain all manners of outdoor decoration, from designing and constructing patios to mowing lawns and putting up holiday lights. Their expertise also extends to the insect world, where their integrated pest-management systems stem off invasions from unwanted guests while reserving pesticides and small-scale explosives as a last resort.

Fully licensed and insured, experts at Esthetically Correct transform yards into groomed, eye-pleasing spaces with landscaping services that range from routine maintenance to elaborate design and construction work. A professional lawn mowing begins with careful edging and trimming work, which quashes a lawn's natural temptation to claw its way across sidewalks, into gardens, and over guests dozing in low-slung hammocks. Mowers then trim grass to an attractive, even length suitable for barefoot strolls and competitive croquet. Clippers clear debris by blowing away shredded grass before departing, leaving yards ready to showcase in the background of family photos or the foreground of ant photos after about 45 minutes.

The grass gurus at Spring-Green Lawn Care help usher sprouts into emerald adulthood. Lawns pestered by bugs will find spray-on solace thanks to the three-step insecticide program. Not only will turf taste a sweet summer mist that evicts ants, spiders, fleas, ticks, and Tinkerbells, but a springtime grub-control application will work to reduce their underground colonies as well. The five-step fertilizer and weed-killing program aims to arm lawns against spring and summer weeds through a quintet of sprays and fertilizer spreadings. First, a late-spring or early-summer spritz shields lawns from unsightly crabgrass outbreaks before a sequence of lime and fertilizer treatments strengthens strands and fosters root development. Spring-Green's terrain masters will also help homeowners decide how to best prepare yards for colder months, prescribing fall seedings or hot-chocolate sprinkler systems.

And before beginning a new service, the soil's pH is tested, so that the most effective blend of nutrients can be applied.
