For more than 25 years, the qualified staffers at Naturescape Lawn and Landscape Care have cultivated flourishing front yards with quality fertilizers and weed-control products. During warm months, the staffers ward off weeds and coat greenery in solutions that protect against mosquitoes, grubs, and borers without enlisting the town crier's threatening shout. While the sun warms their backs, the employees trim overflowing grass and shrubs or trees. When winter falls, staffers shift their focus to driveways, where they haul away snow before it avalanches over cars and the cinder blocks on which they're perched.
WeMow's landscape experts maintain yards and properties with specialized services such as weed removal, seeding treatments, and mowing. During other services, lawn-care specialists can dig their green thumbs into mulch to nourish the yard's soil and to clean up yards when trees sacrifice their leaves as a protest against the bloated contracts given to palm trees. With an eye for shape, color, and placement, landscapers can design gardens and flowerbeds, and create custom-designed organic vegetable gardens of any size. They also plant trees and maintain water features.
Like the grown-up version of parents and children building sandcastles or scratching designs in the dirt, the family-operated Lawns By Lichtefeld beautifies yards with lawn care, fertilization, and landscaping services. They tackle tough patches of weeds, laying the seeds in newly churned and fertilized soil for the eventual emergence of trees, bushes, and flowers. Come wintertime, they prep yards to endure the chill with aeration and fertilization to help grass sprout in the spring looking as green as ever.
The crews at Perfect Cut Lawn & Landscape dote on their yards like loving parents: with patience, passion, and tons of fertilizer. Their lawn and landscaping services leave no blade of grass unturned, ranging from simple mowing to artistic landscape design and installation of patios or pathways. To keep yards lush and healthy, they also aerate, sod, and seed the soil or oust weeds with powerful chemicals and weed eaters.
River Mountain Farm’s experienced equestrians saddle up to train students on a 100-acre facility that boasts five barns, eight large fields, three outdoor arenas, and a heated indoor arena with secure Polytrack footing. Obedient schoolmaster horses trot into daily lessons and fill the air with reassuring whinnies as students use provided equipment to prep and tack their chosen steeds. Once riders are secure in their saddles, instructors adjust lessons according to their skill level and foster clearer lines of communication with a brief tutorial in horse whispering.
