Owned by the Esterline family since 1916, Eagle Creek Nursery helps gardeners cultivate greener spaces with a fully stocked nursery of plants, trees, and an extensive selection of horticulture gear. As customers wander beneath the greenhouse's caliper deciduous and evergreen trees amid tropical plants ($49.95), arborists and landscapers stand by to answer questions and counsel against gardening faux pas, such as overwatering a rock garden. Green thumbs can nurture buds within a selection of pots ($30+) or shape shrubbery sculptures with a pair of hand pruners ($19.95).
Each certified staff member at Blue Sky Lawn & Landscape calls upon more than 10 years of experience by planting trees, nurturing lawns, and orchestrating custom landscape plans. Their landscape-maintenance services include spring edging and fall pruning, which help to prepare lawns, shrubs, and trees for the seasons ahead. With flower-bed and hardscape installation, the specialists create homey backyard settings without going through the trouble of dragging out living-room sofas. Come winter, they keep icy foes from creeping up doorsteps with plowing, shoveling, and salting services.
During your lawn-care service, watch from your hopelessly beached luxury yacht as Keeping It Green clears away sticks, leaves, mulch-bed detritus, and dead Ents, as well as whatever they trim from bushes and shrubs. Everything removed will be disposed of in the most eco-friendly method available. After the grooming, KIG's professional grass manicurists administer a weed-prevention treatment that bars chlorophyll hobos from the grounds and prevents turf war dance-offs between seasonal and perennial plants.

Since 1949, the floral experts at Andrews Florists and Grande Flower Shop, Inc. have pruned and posed fresh blossoms into festive arrangements. Customers can enliven hallways with the dark leaves and red petals of a traditional poinsettia, replacing previous decorations of Thanksgiving cornucopias or Halloween spider nets tangled with mummified candy bars. The 6-inch plant comes tucked inside wrapped foil and tied with a bow, which can double as a holiday decoration or finger skirt.
