With more than 500 locations in 40 states, the Lawn Doctor franchise vaunts core care programs that cover everything from shrub care and pest control to natural, synthetic, and organic lawn fertilization. A free evaluation of residential and commercial plots uncovers the distinct characteristics of the area, such as soil type, weather patterns, and annual rate of pink-flamingo theft. After technicians spread seeds with patented Turf Tamer equipment, home or business owners can solicit color-free treatments to coax away weeds or special pesticides to stave off fire ants, millipedes, and Hollywood movie producers scouting locations for another FernGully installment.
One of the largest nurseries in northwest Florida, Floral Tree Gardens surrounds its customers with a land-grown sea of lush foliage and vibrant blooms. Row upon row of the outdoor gardens are painted with yellow daisies and purple cornflowers, and loquat and avocado trees cast shadows over shoppers. Plant purchases may be complemented with garden accents such as clay pots and metal butterflies, which, unlike their living counterparts, follow orders to sit and stay. Floral Tree Gardens' stock changes with the seasons; its facility brims with pumpkins in the fall and poinsettias in the winter. It also stocks fauna at an onsite pond, where visitors can fish for bass or pygmy submarines.

Ulysses and Florence Cleveland opened their first flower shop in Toulminville, selling arrangements and seeds to locals in 1948. Five decades and three generations later, the flower shop may have moved but its dedication to fresh florals and greenery remains strong. Cleveland Florist showcases a variety of imported flowers, arranged into colorful bouquets to celebrate weddings, birthdays, and births. Clients can have a pitcher of yellow roses delivered to a sweetheart or send a spray of pink buds to express sympathy for a lost loved one. The shop makes every effort to bring these flowers into people's everyday lives from creating displays at the local library to hosting a segment on how to create a holiday centerpiece on the Rachel Ray show.
