A 3.5-acre horticultural haven, Millcreek Gardens gives bloom-seekers a means to realize dreams of colorful, lush outdoor spaces by presenting a wide array of shrubs, trees, and assorted flowerpot inhabitants. Stroll amid verdant rows of plant life, perusing prettified foliage ranging from the serene cerulean hues of a delphinium to the cheerful, bubbly blooms of a hydrangea. Accent a lovely lawn with a classic apple tree ($40+), make the bed for a plot of fragrant flowers ($2–$20), or cover up barren yards with a symphony of shrubbery ($6.50–$50). The one-stop shop also stocks organic plant foods, soil amendments, and fertilizers for keeping growing greenery as strong as a box of oxen.
The techs at Specialized Pest Control erect bug barriers throughout customers' homes to ward off unwanted creepy-crawlies. In the insect treatment, entry points such as windows, doors, and vents are treated with a spray designed to ward off spiders, earwigs, flies, mosquitoes, neighborhood bullies, pavement ants, and wasps. A spray of the home's entire foundation further works to evict invertebrate roommates. If homeowners prefer, techs can target thresholds that lead inside the house, or the team can head indoors to put an end to extended flea circuses and grasshopper music festivals. Specialized Pest Control's bug blockers consider safety as their top priority, applying all pesticides carefully so as not to harm residents or the environment.
As a plant grows, West Side Nursery's now expansive facility also grew from a small seed. Over its four decades in business, the nursery nourished its modest selection to transform into a now flourishing assortment of specimens that rarely find shelf space at smaller nurseries or big-box stores. As its first claim to fame, West Side Nursery highlights its colorful variety of trees, though more than 120 varieties of shrubs edge in on the spotlight as well. The personable and knowledgable staff members, including a landscape designer, also take the time to talk gardening tips with their customers, from discussing the proper time to water new blossoms to the proper time to take an aging maple for its daily walk.
The techs at Utah Lawn know that a healthy, green yard can sometimes come at the expense of the environment and homeowners’ pocketbooks. To help minimize those expenses, they inject Enviromoist’s polymer-based substance into root systems, which distributes nourishing plant food while creating a semipermeable barrier that prevents water and vital nutrients from leaching away. Not only does the product help to cut water waste by up to 50%, it also helps pare down water bills, and can even help reduce soil compaction and the maintenance required to keep a lawn looking verdant.
Beyond root health, the landscaping specialists offer a wide range of lawn-care services and solutions, such as underground sprinkler systems that covertly distribute water to thirsty grass blades. When not nourishing plots, techs stay busy making them more beautiful by building water fixtures such as ponds, streams, and waterfalls. Instead of packing up for the winter, specialists strap on snow boots and continue to keep yards tidy by removing snow clumps and slick sheets of ice, helping cut down on the number of slips and falls experienced by homeowners, visitors, and any hibernating bears prone to walking in their sleep.
