The team of landscaping professionals at Greeney Land Services beautifies the outdoors, assisting homeowners with lawn care, irrigation, and paving installation. Before clients agree to an environs makeover, they can sit down with a professional during a free consultation. This conversation will help them assess their options, which could include paver patios or retaining walls, which keep flowers from running off to meet the bees that pollinate them. Lest beautiful stonework upstage a lackluster lawn, the team also keeps greenery looking healthy and inviting through an array of landscaping and lawn-care services. Potential customers can take a look at the outfit's photo gallery to get an idea of its handiwork.
Founded in 1991 by an enterprising high-school freshman, Apex Landscaping dispatches more than 60 personable personnel to groom clients’ lawns and gardens. With today’s deal, choose between seven varieties of annual flowers to decorate your garden this summer—sprinkle gardens with dainty impatiens, light up a field with some fiery marigolds, or plant sharp snapdragon spikes below windowsills to deter pie thieves. A landscape technician will help homeowners decide where to place plants, then an army of installers will dimple gardens with holes to house 108 root systems. Upon request, they can also sprinkle new arrivals with organic fertilizer or sing them chlorophyll-themed lullabies to soothe the transition into their new homes.
In 1952, after years of experience in the nursery industry, Urban Reckamp planted the first seeds of his own horticultural business, Harvard Nursery. Twenty years later, the next generation of Reckamps, Tim and Pam, took over, letting the nursery's success grow through word of mouth, an established reputation in the community, and a stockpile of magic beans. Bringing a bachelor's in horticulture and an education background in design, the third generation, Kevin and Nina Reckamp, sprouted their roots as the new management of the nursery in 2010.
Today, with 60 years of experience under its belt, the nursery offers visitors a plethora of greenery. Its retail garden center blooms with locally grown verdant saplings and effulgent perennials guaranteed to appease the pickiest of garden gnomes. In addition to onsite dealings, its experienced crew can also travel to nearby locations to perform landscape design, enhancement, and maintenance.
As their name implies, Greenwise specializes in 100% eco-friendly landscaping services. Their maintenance packages for residential or commercial lawns use sustainable, renewable alternative products to keep Mother Nature from giving them a stern lecture. Propane- or electric-driven mowers trim grass with low amounts of emissions and their grass seed is fused with beneficial fungi that nourish turf without the need for added chemicals. Additionally, their fertilizers use nutrient-rich compost comprised of molasses and yeast, and weeds and harmful insects are eliminated with nontoxic, all-natural products.
Greenwise’s devotion to lowering carbon footprints extends to their landscaping design as well. They plant organic gardens that blossom with fresh fruits and vegetables to add aesthetic beauty to yards and cut down on trips to the grocer. They are also proponents of working with native flora, which make for a more sustainable garden and attract native birds and butterflies to yards to entertain bored lawn ornaments.
