In the mid-1960s, friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano began giving weekly lawn-care workshops to green-thumbed homeowners. After watching students become frustrated because they couldn't produce professional-quality results, Bob and Tony decided to go into business caring for lawns themselves and building lawn-nourishing machines to maintain their hard work between visits. Those same machines would later be patented and used in the duo's 500 lawn-care-franchise locations across the United States and Puerto Rico.
Lawn Doctor's technicians arrive at yards ready to sow seeds with the patented Turf Tamer, control pests, trim up lawns, and perform lawn-mower maintenance. Clients and technicians come up with a lawn-care program to keep greens in good health after professionals have a chance to inspect soil quality, grass condition, and Stonehenge replicas constructed by religious moles. The company guarantee promises a reapplication or a full refund if its services are unsatisfactory.

Originally opened in 1981 by Greg and Veronica Burghardt, the Rockaway Garden Center is now tended to by the couple's sons, Greg Jr. and Brian, who draw on their childhood gardening experience and a pair of Rutgers University degrees in plant science and landscape design, installation, and maintenance to nurture the verdant nursery. The nursery blooms with Florida-friendly vegetable plants, flowers, trees, and shrubs, and arms gardeners with a full line of Dr. Earth organic soils and fertilizers. During the Yuletide season, a tree lot teems with Fraser, Douglas, and Concolor firs from the family's upstate New York farm. Rockaway's team of landscaping specialists delivers and installs professional arrangements for home yards, customizing designs to best complement a customer's style or collection of He-Man garden statues. True to its mission of promoting local gardening, the center partners with Seabreeze Elementary School to lead students in nurturing herbs, vegetables, and plants in their school's greenhouse, which can be purchased at the garden center and 10% of the proceeds go back to the school.
