Beyond Paradise Nursery spreads scores of succulents, shrubs, flowers, palm trees, and other seasonal plants across its spacious 3-acre facility. Homeowners can fill empty spaces with long-lasting blooms such as 3-gallon Double Knock Out roses ($20), or let the colorful petals of a 3-gallon loropetalum ($16) cheer up a lonely lawn ornament. Encore azaleas ($25 for a 3-gal.) turn their vibrant faces toward driveways and porches; the blossoms of Little John bottlebrushes ($20 for a 3-gal.) blow in the breeze like miniature pom-poms. During the holiday season, a variety of poinsettias will also be available.
The award-winning team at Turf’s Up specializes in maintaining lawns, but they can also renovate them with custom designs and make those visions reality with installation services. Their crews spruce up grass with fertilizer, replace it completely with new sod, or make sure it’s properly hydrated with new sprinkler heads. They can also add more agua to backyards by putting in water features such as ponds, stream, and fountains or in-ground swimming pools. In addition, their crews enhance home exteriors with flower beds and stone patios, which can be lit with exterior lighting displays or jars filled with tiny silver moons brought down to Earth via lasso.

Anti-pest technicians at Nature's Own Pest & Lawn Services want to have it all. In addition to upholding a commitment to sustainable practices, they refuse to sacrifice effectiveness or long-lasting results. And after years of fighting pests in Texas, they're all too familiar with the local pests. For each operation, they perform a thorough inspection of the home's interior or exterior, and then take hold of their environmentally friendly gear, plus a few organic pesticides and baits. Whether the team is treating a sprawling yard for mosquitos, setting up pet-friendly traps to ward off squirrels but not Fido, or removing small bed bugs from a mattress, it aims to select a solution that will yield long-term results. They also tend lawns with weed control techniques that quell intruding shrubs and nutrient-rich fertilizers that help grass blades grow into strong, sharp grasshopper swords.
