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.

Latta Equestrian Center hoists riders of all levels of equestrian experience into the saddle for a 45- to 50-minute guided horseback ride ($25) through the Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. After a brief tutorial on the finer points of gallops and gees, equine-pilots will saunter Western style down the puttyroot, orchid-dotted trails of the preserve atop their one-horsepower vehicles. 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.

Both residential and commercial greenery benefit from tailored landscaping services, which run the gamut from root-nourishing soil aeration to tree installation.

EarthScape expanded from a one-man company to a team of technicians who turn plain lawns into showpieces with their elegant landscape designs. As members of the Nursery and Landscape Association, they skillfully build berms and crown them with shrubs and flowers while maintaining botanical zones with weed control, core aeration, and turf disease prevention. When they aren't tending to the health of yards, techs equip them with ponds, fountains, and outdoor kitchens. As licensed irrigation contractors, they can also install watering systems that conserve water, quench thirsty lawns, and save homeowners the hassle of tickling a fire hydrant until it spouts.
