The dedicated grass whisperers at Scapes Environmental Design spruce up front-yard foliage with a retinue of mulch-cutting mowers. Green carpets of up to 4,500 square feet are scythed once a week, kept short enough so as to not sprout unsightly dandelion colonies or swallow up immobile sunbathers. Each mowing is accompanied by an edging of grassy cuticles from sidewalks, driveways, and front curbs, the viridian debris eventually whisked away by a blower. Whether for a month or a one-time service, Scapes Environmental Design relieves homeowners from the onerous task of intimidating grass back into the netherworld, freeing up time for weekend getaways or getting to the bottom of their pet parakeet's recent sullen comments.

Big D’s innovative tree injections help diseased, pest-ridden, or malnourished trees fight off invasive species and return to full, leafy health. An eco-friendly alternative to conventional spraying, the injection method imbues trunks with a small amount of solutions formulated to treat a wide variety of arboreal ailments, including common pests such as caterpillars and beetles and tree diseases including sudden oak death and dutch elm disease. Within 24 hours of receiving their shots, mite-infested hardwoods are fully inoculated and can finally stop using their branches to scratch their trunks. All treatments protect their plants for a minimum of two years, allowing them to regain their strength and grow beyond the reach of their old nemeses. Unlike conventional spray treatments, tree injections do not expose any surrounding plants, air, or soil to the solutions—all the beneficial liquids go directly into the trunk.

If a Houston homeowner's landscape is a family made up of verdant lawns, colorful flowers, and leafy shrubs, then the trees are the shy middle children. Unlike the lawn, trees don't get doted on with nitrogen-rich fertilizers. Unlike flowers, trees are not patiently pruned, weeded, or plucked and pinned to a grandmother's lapel. Sadly, most homeowners only pay attention to trees once it's too late; by then, their foliage has wilted to a pale yellowy complexion and they’ve started hanging out with bad crowds of bagworms or pine-bark beetles. At Texas Tree Team, arborists make sure that these gentle specimens get the nurturing they need to survive and thrive. Their services care for trees throughout their leafy life span, from planting and feeding to pruning and stump removal. The team also protects trees threatened with displacement or removal by construction or urban sprawl, preserving shade and blossoms for future residents. Along with protecting mature trees, the company also plants new saplings, dotting landscapes with trees ranging from color-sprayed magnolias, bradford pears, pecan trees, or crepe myrtles to palms hearty enough to weather even the hottest heat waves.

Barbara spent her childhood on her father's cotton farm, surrounded by the science and business of growing plants. And when it came time to start her own career, she pursued horticulture, and so her son Jacob enjoyed a similar upbringing. Inspired by role models such as Seattle Urban Farm Co., Barbara and Jacob decided to bring their agricultural know-how to city folk, and help them raise fresh, organic vegetables in their own homes.

Along with a small team, Barbara and Jacob transform a small portion of clients' yards and back decks into produce producers. They construct raised garden beds out of durable rough cedar planks and fill them with soil rich in organic fertilizers and nutrients to help earthworms grow into beautiful eels. They then plant a different crop in every square foot of the box, which means their three standard sizes of beds can sustain anywhere from eight to 32 different crops. They see their vegetable gardens as a long-term investment for their clients; after all, the growing season lasts all year thanks to Houston's climate.
