Through two distinct lawn-service programs built around pesticide-free and organic greenery care, the grass whisperers promote deep root growth and replenish spent soils with natural infusions of trace elements, controlled-release nutrients, and warm, fatherly advice.
Robert Gardner grew up in the world of gardening. At the age of 13, he started helping work the fields and sell plants at his family's nursery, becoming the fourth generation of his family to go into the business. Decades later—now at the helm of the family business—Mr. Gardner purchased a property in Chester Springs and created Gardner's Landscape Nursery. Here, he oversees the growing of 100,000 annuals and perennials each year and the stock of home decor and patio furniture that is made in America.
Mr. Gardner and his staff also help patrons design custom outdoor environments, selecting plants, trees, and shrubs that beam with fall colors or thrive in specific conditions. Alternatively, patrons can explore on their own, browsing a glass house with plants and flowers or a 19th-century barn, which houses outdoor furnishings and the ghosts of garden gnomes.
The professional lawn-care experts from Green Lawn Fertilizing employ landscaping prowess to meet the needs of any tree, shrub, or plot of grass. Homeowners keep their lawns green and free of weeds posing as boutonnieres with the outfit's array of lawn-care programs, and shoo away pests with the flea-and-tick program. Green Lawn also warms green thumbs by participating in the annual Renewal & Remembrance Project at Arlington National Cemetery, an event that honors fallen troops by planting, aerating, and spreading lime across the cemetery's 200 acres.
Plants and flowers symbolize new life, so it's only fitting that City Planter resides inside a converted old warehouse, transforming what would be a dusty, vacant space into a vibrant gardener's paradise. Inside, the neighborhood nursery's friendly staff members readily share their wisdom and help clients select the perfect house plant for the living room, rose for the garden, and orchid for the dog house.
The green thumbs also encourage customers to stop by with pictures of their space and they will help design a garden sanctuary. If visiting the store isn't possible, staffers will plant your plant in a container and deliver it to your door.
