Scrubnik Landscape feeds and manicures a home's lawn and green spaces with a bevy of outdoor services. Technicians cut enthusiasts blades of grass down to size with seasonal mowing services or shape trees and shrubbery with artful snips. Experts also construct custom landscape-design schemes and nurture budding seedlings through fertilization, lawn-seeding, and sodding services. Additionally, Scrubnik can accent homes with delivery and installation of quality trees, plants, and flowers, as well as oversize portions of red and brown mulch. Catering to homes all year long, teams also clear snowdrifts with regular driveway service or fend off summertime mosquitos with natural repellants such as scarecrows shaped like fly swatters.

Since 1945, this family-owned landscaping business and garden center has helped locals transform their yards into lush landscapes and bountiful gardens. The company's secret to longevity is enlisting a staff of passionate expert gardeners and cloning them to populate future generations. Among its members, the landscaping team shares almost 200 years of collective experience, with foremen holding between 12 and 20 years apiece. Company president James Campbell began cultivating his love of all things flora on a farm crew at age 14. In college, he studied ornamental horticulture and then spent four decades working at Campbell & Ferrara, ascending from crew member to foreman to president.

You might get lost in the meandering paths of the indoor-outdoor garden center with 8 acres of trees, shrubs, and seasonal flowers. Thankfully, horticulturists and garden experts roam the grounds, ready to offer you directions and advice. To deter pests, for example, they'll tell you to plant a border of marigolds or a handful of sacrificial Skittles. Hand them a picture of your yard, and they'll predict which plants and flowers will likely thrive there. They also make DIY-ing easy by arranging over 1,000 trees and shrubs into user-friendly categories such as privacy screening, Virginia natives, and four-season. For customers who prefer an expert's help, landscapers offer degrees of assistance, ranging from installing customer-selected plants to completely redesigning yards with putting greens, outdoor kitchens, or waterfalls.
