When Greg Voirin was in high school, he started mowing lawns with nothing but a push mower and some elbow grease. As he grew up, so did his ambition, and today Not Just Grass is a full-fledged lawn-maintenance company that provides services to both homes and businesses. When Greg approaches each new landscaping job, he consults with his brother, Adam Voirin—a LEED-certified pro with a background in landscape architecture. Together, they'll customize a design that could include anything from basic tree and bush trimming to built-in barbecue pits. Greg also creates custom lawn-maintenance plans to give homeowners more time to spend at home with their families or hiding from them at the bowling alley.
During the winter, Greg and his techs pack up their mowers but continue working hard to keep walkways clear of ice and snow. They also keep an extensive portfolio online so customers can peruse the team's handiwork and envision their lawns with a new outdoor kitchen, timber wall, or multilevel patio.
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.
The bond between John and Lisa Jo White was built around a mutual love of horses. The pair met in 1990 at the National Show Horse Finals in Louisville, while Lisa Jo was coaching an equitation rider. Over the course of the next decade, they would get married, start their own stable, and garner national recognition showing arabian performance horses. Sadly, John passed away in 2009, but Lisa Jo carries on his legacy as the head trainer and operator of the year-round facility. Within her expansive indoor riding arena—outfitted with a heated wash rack, quarter-mile track, and viewing area—she trains all ages to become capable riders, knowledgeable with horsemanship, and confident enough to take their horse to the prom. In recognition of her success with students, the Arabian Horse Times has awarded Lisa Jo with its Reader’s Choice Instructor of the Year Award three years running.
