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.

Blackwood Landscaping's talented team of landscape artists maintains front and backyard health with lawn services that use environmentally affectionate products. Tend grassy areas of up to 10,000 square feet with an aeration procedure, during which cylindrical plugs punch small holes into the soil to reduce compaction and unearth fossilized lawn ornaments. This professional process diminishes thatch and allows roots improved access to delectable nutrients and nourishing lime. Afterwards, a fueling fertilizer encourages the growth of grass, much like height restrictions on tilt-a-whirls encourage the growth of small children. The machinery used in these processes is 38 inches wide, so any gates must be larger than 38 inches, or the household must own a teleporter.
