Like the most exclusive of celebrity croquet matches, the Complete Turf Maintenance program strives to admit only VIP grass seeds to coveted lawn real estate while strictly cracking down on gate-crashing bull thistle and lambsquarter. Roark Landscaping's experienced technicians tackle the idiosyncrasies of each patch of land they encounter, invigorating your grassy house beard throughout the year to keep it verdant and well-behaved.
Express Lawn Services supplements landscapes with grass-growing products and services designed to rouse ailing lawns from slanted or injured states. Thinning, weakened yards damaged by pets, children, or copycat crop-circle artists may be returned to their green glory with a dose of Bermuda sod. One pallet, which covers about 550 square feet of ground, strives to cultivate lush, skyward-blooming blades from downtrodden land. Bermuda sod is a durable grass known for its capacity to withstand hot, sunny climates and its eerily sentient ability to scream at neighborhood kids that dare to tread upon it.
As owners of Midwest Pest Control, brothers Grant and Mark Christensen have chosen their side in the war against household pests: they’re with the good guys. Their crews deploy safe, EPA-approved products during thorough assaults on both the inside and outside of a home. They apply 7- to 10-foot barrier sprays around the home’s exterior and treat common insect hangouts in the interior, rooting vermin out of baseboards, basements, and the bugs-only coffee shop behind the fridge. Ideally, each blitz eradicates infestations of critters including ants, yellow jackets, and termites while simultaneously preventing their return; should buggy troops regroup, the team will happily come back between scheduled services for retreatment.

Superior Rents' owners, Dan and Steve Wohnoutka, trace the genesis of their business back to their own childhoods spent on a modestly equipped farm. With an appreciation for how proper tools and equipment can make projects run smoother, they decided to stock three locations with plumbing, construction, and lawn-care equipment for homeowners and contractors to rent on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis. Their online catalog hosts a roster of rental equipment, from power drills for household projects to forklifts for hanging Do Not Disturb signs on asteroids. Customers can arrange for equipment to be delivered to their work site or drop by one of three locations—including a newly opened site in Springfield—to pick up gear.
Gilbert H. Wild and Son cultivates nearly 450 acres of land, filling the gardens of others with its own assortment of flowers that includes more than 1,800 varieties of daylilies, 600 varieties of peonies, and 120 varieties of irises. Daylily mavens peruse a selection that includes the rich, mauve Always Afternoon (normally $11) and the Alabama Jubilee, whose stem bears a regal crown of red. Irises such as the delicate Autumn Circus (normally $6) and the sweetly fragrant Feed Back (normally $7.50) delight the olfactory as well as the optical cranial nerves. Peonies and lilies grace domiciles with their presence, including the Duchess de Nemours peony with its light canary yellow frame (normally $12) and the Endless Love lily, whose white flowers echo the purity of a new refrigerator door (normally $4 for three bulbs).
