For 16 years, the turf-taming professionals at First Choice Lawn Care have delivered individualized lawn care in the Shreveport-Bossier City area with friendly service and fully functional equipment. During the lawn cut, a computerized routing system accurately accounts for the shapes of lawnscapes so that every underarm-tickling blade of grass receives ample shortening. Alternately, yard carpets suffering from malnutrition and Victorian wasting illnesses flourish under fertilization, which infuses sporadic tracts with such nutrients as nitrogen and phosphorus to leave lawns looking as mature as the day they moved out of the house.
The amount of colors and fragrances at A Little Something Gifts & Flowers would be overwhelming if it wasn’t all so pleasant. Seasonal spring bouquets explode with fuchsia blossoms and pink snapdragons, and roses entice guests with a range of colors, from soothing pale pink to electric golden yellow. The staff can also help guests select the perfect bouquet for any occasion, from hospital visits to holidays.
The Ellis family traces its history of working with plants to the late 1800s, when they operated a pottery-manufacturing company in Texas. Current-generation family members build from their familial expertise at all five of their store locations, spread between Louisiana and Texas. Twice a year, the Ellises travel overseas to identify upcoming horticulture trends decided by UN meetings in The Hague. This has expanded their decorative focus to include all aspects of home décor to complement greenhouses filled with tropical blooms and locally grown shrubbery. Clocks, lamps, and vases score homeowners extra credit in interior-design classes, and fountains and outdoor furniture make gardens hospitable for warm weather. For those who want to get ahead on holiday decorating, they offer an extensive selection of seasonal decor and accents year round. The Ellises encourage creativity with hands-on classes in subjects such as making centerpieces, weaving wreaths, and tying ribbon into perfect bows.
