Since 1998, landscape specialists Glenn and Donna Claeys of The Garden Outlet have shared their horticultural expertise with customers who want to bring the outdoors indoors while also beautifying their property. The duo operates throughout the year, tending to flowering annual and perennial plants, trees, shrubs, and vines, while also offering seasonal items such as Christmas trees and Halloween pumpkins, the latter of which must be plucked before they hatch into Thanksgiving turkeys. Though The Garden Outlet staff supplies customers with landscape materials and tools, they also professionally install plants, walkways, and patios. In addition, the gardening designers create elaborate arrangements for weddings and other formal events.
Jonathan Rigsbee, founder of GrowinGreen, keeps lawns looking lush while treating Mother Earth with respect. His crew utilizes environmentally friendly yard-care methods that lean less on chemicals and more on holistic, soil-based solutions. Staffers avoid pollution by abstaining from treatments right before a rainfall, and they never leave fertilizers where they might wash into someone's drinking water or whale-shark aquarium. GrowinGreen's team also knows that some problems can be treated without professional help, and it offers customers an online database of havoc-wreaking weeds, plant diseases, and insects. This list, complete with photographs, can help homeowners diagnose various greenery ailments, such as brown-patch-covered lawns caused by what the staff refers to as "humongous fungus" or by feeding the grass orange juice.

It's a two-man operation at Prestige Lawn Service?and it's amazing what just two men can do. Owners and operators Joey Wingfield and Terry Clark provide a vast range of landscaping services for both residential and commercial properties. Those treatments include pruning and trimming, aeration and seeding, annual fertilization, water garden installation, and convincing owners they don't need to sing to each blade of grass individually to make lawns grow.
In 1967, buddies Bob Magda and Tony Giordano started a humble lawn-care outfit that now has more than 460 locations in more than 40 states. The business was born of a serendipitous overlap between need and expertise: Bob recognized the frustration on the faces of the customers who attended his hardware store’s Sunday-morning lawn-care workshops, while Tony was hard at work on the industry’s first automated lawn-care machine. Together, they decided they could cure lawn-care woes by joining forces and—with a little fertilization from hard work and customer service—the seeds of Lawn Doctor were planted.
Today, those foundations can be recognized in the free lawn evaluation that kicks off every service call. A professional lawn-care technician performs a full overview of the lawn in question, classifying grass type and identifying pests such as weeds or insects. The technicians also review maintenance habits such as watering, mowing, and styling each blade of grass with hair gel. The team takes these factors into consideration when concocting a tailored treatment plan, which might include such services as application of the proprietary Turf Tamer application, pest control, or tree and shrub care.
At each locally owned Weed Man outpost, professionally trained and certified landscapers bring decades of lawn-care experience to their weed-control, fertilizing, and aeration services. They strive to keep lawns green and healthy by using an exclusive, 65% slow-release granular fertilizer, performing regular seeding, and doing regular pest management to combat insects, weeds, and disease.
