Turf Pro Inc's trained technicians safeguard water systems from harsh winter damage by removing aqua drops from pipelines before popping by to restart sprinklers when the weather warms. After educating patrons about winterization techniques, sprinkler specialists force large volumes of air through the system's pipelines via an air compressor, which blows out every drop of water, and close off systems until spring. Poorly maintained hydration systems can bear witness to a number of frozen calamities, such as cracked backflows, broken sprinkler heads, and an accumulation of inner-pipe ice sculptures, which can prevent proper lawn saturation and lead to costly repairs. Once the springtime sun returns to warm ground fur, Turf Pro technicians return to the homestead and thoroughly check all pipes, replace any broken heads, and adjust controller modules to modify watering schedules, fostering growth and discouraging home invasions by the Wicked Witch.

The florist department brings the outdoor flourish inside by arranging fresh-cut floral bouquets and gift baskets for all manner of occasions.

In 2011, the Oxford Leader’s readers awarded Birmingham Sealcoat, Inc. the title of Best Seal Coating for the second consecutive year. The award demonstrates how far owners Ryan and Mark Austin have taken their seal-coat, asphalt, and concrete-maintenance business since the brothers founded Austin’s Quality Asphalt Repair as a small weekend business in 2004. Today, the Austins have expanded their services to include patio and curb care in addition to installing asphalt and concrete. Their signature seal-coating service prolongs the life of asphalt surfaces by filling in cracks and creating an even, uniform appearance. The company is also a licensed dealer for Nature Stone flooring, a stain- and salt-resistant surface that lasts longer than concrete, insulates better than tiles, and absorbs moisture better than floors made of sponges.
