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.
Each certified staff member at Blue Sky Lawn & Landscape calls upon more than 10 years of experience by planting trees, nurturing lawns, and orchestrating custom landscape plans. Their landscape-maintenance services include spring edging and fall pruning, which help to prepare lawns, shrubs, and trees for the seasons ahead. With flower-bed and hardscape installation, the specialists create homey backyard settings without going through the trouble of dragging out living-room sofas. Come winter, they keep icy foes from creeping up doorsteps with plowing, shoveling, and salting services.
Like artists working with a palette of stone, soil, and greenery, teams from S.A.T. Landscape Services paint elaborate stone patios and blossom-laden plots. Members of the Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association, the workers install water fountains, or deliver gravel to driveways or the sides of balding mountains. With gloved hands they wield products such as Mr. Mulch and Oberfield’s concrete, and take on tasks such as mulching, edging, and pruning shrubs. Besides keeping lawns mowed, aerated, and sculpted, they also arrange aesthetically pleasing landscape lighting, lay sod, and seed yards.
This year, Meadow View's maze designers and dungeon masters have designed the eight-acre corn maze in the shape of the city of New Carlisle's Bicentennial and Speedway SuperAmerica logos—though that won't help you much as you gleefully lose yourself in the disorienting twists, turns, and dead-ends at ground level. Along the way, you may encounter figures from the city's past, such as Jesse James, who famously robbed one of his first banks in New Carlisle before giving up thieving and becoming president. Once you've successfully traversed the maze and its litter of minotaurs, you can relax around the campfire in the Kidz Corral, pick up a pumpkin at the pumpkin patch, visit the whimsical Pumpkin House, or take part in the goat walk, among other activities.
