Rome’s Landscape dispatches efficient crews of outdoor professionals to ensure clients' landscapes are maintained throughout all four seasons. In the spring and summer, the lawn experts assess their clients' grass, determining its type and condition before carefully shearing each blade to uniform height, pulling up plugs of earth to aerate roots, and collecting leaves, dead grass, and snowmen noses left over from winter with thorough dethatchings. During spring and fall, the team keeps yards safe by clearing snow from sidewalks and driveways, which enables cars and horse-drawn chariots to navigate garages and driveways with ease.
Country Apple Orchard was established in 1984 and opens its arboreal doors to eager pomme pickers every year in the middle of August, staying open through late October. Thirteen varieties of crisp, juicy apples sweetly seduce orchard visitors, and today's Groupon lets you hand-select the contents of your own 10-pound satchel. Connel Red, Fireside, Sweet Sixteen, Regent, and Cortland apples are vibrant and crisp, just right for snack seekers, pie makers, and children who need extra incentive to get good at playing catch. Haralson and Haralred apples tout tongue-tickling tartness, making them marvelous in cold-weather desserts and when paired with feather earrings. If you're seeking an apple that's as sweet as an apple pie all on its own, track down a tree of Jonathons. An afternoon at the orchard makes a wholesome autumn excursion ideal for families, outdoorsy friends, and curious proto-humans. Approximately 6,000 fruit-bearing trees make up the orchard, flaunting a diverse body of flavors.
Lawn Crafters’ services are anything but cookie-cutter. To keep lawns healthy and green, each turf expert carefully scrutinizes the yard before mowing, factoring in details such as the type of grass, moisture level, and sun exposure in order to determine the correct type of mower and the ideal cutting height for each lawn. When it comes to fertilization and weed combat, the company retools its lawn-treatment program annually to keep up with changing technology, always mixing pellet and liquid treatments to ensure lawns don't get bored and try to eat the porch. Squadrons of leaf blowers and vacuums come out in force to aid during seasonal cleanups, and pruning shears also make the occasional appearance to touch up shrubs and trees during the spring and fall.
