For the past 87 years, Weston Nurseries has provided garden goods and services through good days, bad days, and days of triffids. If your plant expertise doesn't even go back 87 seconds, Weston's staff of friendly, knowledgeable chlorophyll enthusiasts will happily guide potential green thumbs through a library of nearly 1,800 plants. Assorted perennials start at $8.95 and stand ready to be planted in fertile crescents throughout the Super Mario Brothers level you've built in your backyard. The less soil-inclined can gussy up a porch or balustrade with a hanging planter full of colorful annuals (starting at $32). Otherwise, sweeten summers with highbush blueberry cultivars ($36 for a #3 pot) or give the lily of the valley something to be jealous of with a Rose-of-Sharon ($36 for a #3 pot). Every gardener worth his or her pruning shears knows of the earth's constant craving for crustaceans, so feed its need with Coast of Maine Lobster Compost ($7.99 per one-cubic-foot bag). Gardening accessories are also plentiful; gear up with phalange-guarding West County women's garden gloves ($27.99) and an OXO 3L watering can ($19.99), to name just a few.
Ensuring lawn lushness since 1993, the full-time technicians of Lucas Irrigation install and maintain residential and commercial landscape watering systems with reliable components, and they are kept up to date with Lucas's commitment to continuing education in industry trends. Each new installation is custom designed to accommodate the property's unique landscape conditions, water pressure, and plumbing concerns. Seasonal services kick on sprinklers in the spring, adjust watering patterns for midsummer months, and prepare systems for winter conditions to prevent damage caused by freezing pipes or hibernating gophers.
Regardless of the season, the experts at J. Mosca Landscaping & Design have plenty of outdoor tasks to keep them busy. As the spring sun starts to shine, landscapers clean up damage from winter storms and yeti mosh pits before seeding lawns and setting up irrigation systems. They also stop by during the dog days of summer to trim the grass and mulch flowerbeds. Once the weather turns cold, the techs shift gears, trading hoes for shovels in order to clear walkways of drifted snow. In addition to seasonal tasks, the experts also know their way around construction; aided by their own fleet of earth-moving M-Series Bobcats, their sure-handed masons can craft walkways, patios, retaining walls, and fireplaces no matter the time of year.
