The technicians at Danik's Landscape and Lawncare elevate lawn care to an art. In addition to conventional lawn and landscaping services, they are trained in the craft of lawnscaping, or mowing and cutting customized words or pictures into grass to personalize lawns. Committed to customers’ convenience, Danik's Landscape and Lawncare can schedule services at any time, and technicians happily cater to special needs or requests, such as mowing grass to a particular length or saving clippings as confetti for Earth Day parades.
Spring-Green Lawn Care's vegetation experts serve more than 7,500 neighborhood communities, continuing a 35-year tradition of meticulous landscaping. With the preferred program, green-thumbed technicians assess lawns according to the local climate, growing conditions, and potential for spontaneous cartwheel contests. After the consultation, Spring-Green's team applies a custom-concocted serum of fertilizer and weed control, transforming boring yards into Neverlands of luxurious verdure and eerily ageless children. In addition to inspiring grass growth and warding off weeds, Spring-Green’s landscapers strengthen yards from the ground up with core aeration services. They puncture lawns by removing small plugs of soil and excess thatch, providing grass roots with more air and nutrients. Overseeding treatments take advantage of maximum oxygenation, blanketing lawns with fresh blends of turf grass seeds at the most optimal time. These sod kernels have been shown to have a higher resistance to diseases, a greater ability to withstand drought, and diminished odds of premature balding.
Kapp's Lawn Specialists have been beautifying yards for more than four decades. During that time, they've perfected a precise system for keeping grass, trees, and shrubs healthy, tidy, verdant, and fertilized. Among an array of services, their seasonal groundskeeping package employs a custom-blended granular fertilizer and treatments for keeping crabgrass, weeds, and revolution-minded plastic flamingos under control. Staff members are professionally trained and certified, and the products they use are all approved by the Environmental Protection Agency to safely fend off insects, plant diseases, and other lawn-related woes.
Whether you're dressing up the front walkway or reinforcing the garden plots in time for fall, a lush bed of mulch can take topsoil to the next level—the top one. When laid properly, the rich complexion helps to reduce soil erosion, suppress weed growth, and retain moisture. When applied in the summertime in temperate climate zones, such as the Midwest, mulch also helps the soil maintain high temperatures further into the fall, allowing preexisting plant life to prolong its beauteous lifespan.
Gardeners Bruce and Aimee Johnson channel their shared passion for landscaping into Woodland Gardens' verdant acreage, which abounds with beautiful flora selected to appeal to both the avid collector and casual gardener. The thriving nursery ships out a stunning array of hostas and charming daylilies bred to ensure a uniformly brilliant color that only enhances nature’s subtle variations. The plants’ reliable blooms often last long into the autumn months, and their excellent table manners make them ideal for bouquet centerpieces. Though the online store features a vast selection of hostas and daylilies, a visit to the nursery—where Japanese maple trees grow alongside a host of rare and interesting plants—is a gift in its own right. Selections appeal to avid hosta and japanese maple collectors, as well as casual gardeners.
The lawn care industry has changed since Jim Zylstra, founder and owner of Tuff Turf Molebusters, started caring for yards in 1985. Since founding Tuff Turf in 1993, Zylstra has kept pace with technology while protecting the environment with eco-friendly, EPA-tested granular fertilizers and pesticides. Today, he custom-builds riding fertilizer machines, replacing them every other year with more advanced models, and customizes his fleet of trucks so that each is suited for a specific service. Tuff Turf’s staff of eight full-time technicians—which includes two full-time mole specialists and one gas technician—offer a full range of turf-protecting services such as lawn care, animal and insect control, and tree and shrub fertilization. Tuff Turf demonstrates a commitment to safety and sustainability by cultivating associations with GreenCare for Troops and the Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association.
