For nearly a decade, Ivey Landscaping's licensed lawn-care professionals have kept commercial and residential lawns looking fresh, lush, and bountiful. Its maintenance professionals review each lawn individually and then design a custom maintenance plan to keep the yard looking as fresh and green as the Incredible Hulk after a nap. Its services range from fertilization and weed control to mowing, aerating, seeding, and pruning. For lawns in need of a complete face-lift, Ivey's in-house landscape designer comes out to assess the grounds and provide designs in 2-D or 3-D renditions. The design services include lighting, irrigation, outdoor living areas, and installation of mature shrubs and trees. As an added perk, new maintenance customers benefit from complimentary curbside leaf collection, which prevents unsightly leaves from piling up and ruining a home's curb appeal or welcoming roving packs of leaf-jumping children.

Throughout the 16 miles of horseback lanes within the preserve, riders will discover their inner Burton Gilliams as a cavalcade of Carolina critters, including gray foxes and red-spotted newts, look on from their apartment windows.
