Certified by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Professional Lawn Care Association of America, Riverfront Landscaping bolsters curb appeal with professional lawn and landscaping services. The outdoor artisans also create pondless waterfalls, koi ponds, and bubbling fountains for a client list that has included Macon-Bibb County Parks and Recreation and the Keep Warner Robins Beautiful Commission. Solidly assembled from bricks and fieldstones, Riverfront's custom-built arbors, pergolas, outdoor fireplaces, and open-air kitchens help transform backyards into magical gathering places that extend a friendly invitation to neighbors and lonely indoor kitchens.
LDI Landscape's staff can tackle projects of all sizes. With knowledge of landscaping, irrigation, and fertilization, they can mow grass, edge sidewalks and beds, and trim shrubs for residential and commercial buildings alike. Their experience in landscaping projects, along with their fleet of backhoes and equipment trucks, equips them to construct outdoor areas for larger clients, such as mini-malls and distant planets. When Bass Pro Shops decided to open a new location, they enlisted LDI to create a mountain-themed area with dry sand and arid plants.
The handy staff members of the family-run American Outdoor Specialists seek to provide affordable options for Henry County’s lawn-care needs, including everything from trimming to weeding. In addition to tending to greenery, they repair and install fences and vinyl siding, pressure wash homes and driveways, and clean out gutters.
When recession forced their pizzeria to close in 2008, Mrinali Goswami and her husband, Bala Dommeti, raised some funds by selling the plants they recreationally grew in their backyard on Craigslist. With an unexpected surge in popularity, the duo soon found themselves on the radar of zoning officials, who informed them they couldn’t legally sell plants in a residential area. Fortunately, they were able to use the sales they already made online to purchase a three acre nursery and, according to the Rockdale Citizen, house more than 5,000 plants. What was once a part-time gardening hobby now blossomed into a full-time gig.
Pixies Gardens cultivates all sorts of plants, from pear trees and dogwoods to corkscrew willows and more than 10 varieties of hydrangeas, and Mrinali grows many of the fruit trees and ornamental shrubs herself. Because they don't use a greenhouse, their hardy plants undergo few, if any, transplanting shocks when they leave the nursery.
