Purelawn Lawn Service’s fertilization and lawn-maintenance programs are designed to promote lush, healthy lawns while protecting children, pets, and the environment. Pesticide-free, feed-based organic fertilizers play a starring role in most treatments, and any synthetic pesticides are used sparingly and applied via careful spot treatment to avoid blanketing areas where kids play and lawn gnomes sunbathe. Aside from eliminating a lawn’s dependence on insecticides and fungicides, additional services include core aeration, slice seeding, grub control, and clay-buster soil amendment, and techs can even take samples of soil and send it to a lab to test for nutrient deficiencies.
With an array of locally grown greenery, Cooley's sprouts most of its flowers and earthy edibles in one of seven on-site greenhouses. Cooley's quiet countryside location fosters a soothing browsing experience, whether visitors are looking for roses ($19.50) and wave petunias ($9.95 for six) to impress a loved one, or tomato and pepper plants ($1.95 each) to grow their own arsenal to throw at nagging comedians. Other items such as organic fertilizer ($8.99) and potting soil ($6.30) help facilitate home garden upkeep. Customers can work with one of Cooley's planting experts to transform their empty pots and baskets into blossoming bins of beauty. After a thorough consultation, a horticulturalist will design radiant plant and flower arrangements, which will ripen in the greenhouse for a few weeks until they're ready to be picked up and placed as the ideal accent for a patio, a windowsill, or the stolen piece of Stonehenge hidden in the basement.
