As children, many kids spend their days mowing lawns to supplement their allowances. Brothers Ben and Brian Marsh carried their grass-tending ways over to adulthood, and they now spend their days professionally beautifying lawns with full-service landscaping and maintenance services. All year long, customers can call on the duo for anything from routine mowing and edging to lawn aeration and fertilization. In preparation for spring, they take up special projects of hiding garden gnomes from nearsighted owls. The Marsh brothers can work up customizable contracts to help their clients' lawns look lush all year long.

For more than 40 years, homeowners have entrusted their yards to the experts at Weed Man. Perhaps it’s because the employees do more than just perform lawn-care services—they cultivate close working relationships with their clients. This means they are available by telephone or smoke signal any time of the day, promptly respond to faxes or emails within 48 hours, and explain the technical side of lawn care to their clients. Of course, what keeps customers coming back is the attention the staff members lavish on grass during services, which range from eradicating weeds with EPA-approved products to aerating lawns to ousting destructive insects.
A lawn-care technician from Lawn Doctor will diagnose personal pasture issues and provide customized services to improve yard appearance and health. To stimulate growth in receding grass lines, the power-seeding service spreads seeds throughout thinning yards for maximum germination to improve appearance and eschew lawn-sized baseball caps ($25+). Technicians can also seed undernourished plots with a fortifying fertilizer treatment ($50+), or aerate soil to allow for deeper root growth, easier nutrient access, and more ammo during slingshot fights.
For 20 years, Ellen Ashley has pursued and shared her passion for gardening by tending and teaching in her own 10-acre paradise, which houses thousands of plants in nine types of gardens. Ashley's interest in flora ignited when she was a youngster in rural Virginia, where she watched her father grow vegetables and fruit trees while her mother raised flowers and tutored wood nymphs. After retiring from a career in technical sales, Ashley dedicated herself full time to her planting passion, both at home and in the community. Her decade of activity with the Guilford Horticultural Society has included lecturing on subjects such as butterfly gardens, seed saving, and herbs.
