Green Cut Lawns was founded by the father-and-son team of Phillip and Brent Quirk, the latter of whom currently oversees the business. Among their hundreds of clients are multi-national companies who enlist the company or its technicians' meticulous landscape maintenance services. They offer many treatments that all serve the same goal—to keep lawns looking trimmed and manicured so they can add aesthetic beauty to the home. These services include mowing, fertilizer and weed control, landscape bed maintenance, and core aeration. They work on both residential and commercial lawns, and also offer seasonal services such as spring clean-ups and holiday light installations.
After laying a weather-resistant brick patio, Lowney’s Landscaping and Garden Center’s landscapers finish it off with a stone retaining wall sprouting with perennials and leafy shrubs. They manage the whole project, from design to installation, creating an artful appearance that can increase a home's value. In addition to executing everything from pruning bushes and cutting grass to seeding lawns—services they've been providing for more than 15 years—they illuminate their clients' beautiful residential and commercial properties with low-voltage, energy-efficient lighting systems. Even in winter, they strive to keep landscapes in great shape with snowplowing, salting services, and weight-loss programs for snowmen. The garden center is a place for equally passionate gardeners and novice green thumbs to wade through small blueberry plants, evergreens, tropicals, and a wide assortment of gardening materials.
In 1949, Kenny Schmalz founded Schmalz Custom Landscaping & Garden Center. His son Luke and Luke's wife, Donna, have since taken over, but the botanical wonderland's commitment to stunning gardens has remained constant. Designers and architects can help homeowners bring to life the landscapes of their dreams, and a full inventory of plants, mulch, and accessories can help land planners go it alone.
The Orchid Bug helps spruce up terraces and gardens with a robust inventory of orchids, green plants, and growing supplies. Stationed at the front of the shop, a large window sends sunlight splashing across thriving displays of flora. Visitors snaking around those displays can indulge their budding curiosity by quizzing owner Denise Kirchmayer, or by participating in one of the store's classes. For a general overview of orchids and their culture, Orchids 101 fertilizes the minds of new and seasoned collectors alike, and more in-depth sessions, such as Orchids 102, explores the natural habitats of specific genera and why water is better than Tabasco sauce for sustaining a plant's life. Hands-on gatherings, such as Plug at the Bug, guide students through the planting process.
When customers enter Garden Supply Guys expansive retail location in Green Bay, they're greeted by vibrant, orange walls and a retro 1960s VW bus parked to the left of the welcome mat. At a counter just steps away, green-thumbed staffers await to satisfy customers' indoor and outdoor gardening needs by answering plant-related inquiries and directing them to affordable supplies. Experienced in sprouting seedlings, they can also help customers expand their hydroponic setups, begin traditional soil gardens, or fashion overgrown weeds into hula skirts.
Flower Co. is a family-owned and operated floral shop, selling seasonal and creative flower arrangements and plants for all occasions. Walking into the store, visitors are spoiled for choices when looking for small gifts to accompany their fresh flower arrangements and stems of blooms: there's a plethora of stuffed animals, figurines, cards, and mugs to choose from. Customers can have florists create an anniversary arrangement bursting with roses or daisies or make a hostess gift out of a Sweet Surrender tulip bouquet in a graceful glass vase.
