After more than four decades, Weed Man's licensed and trained experts have lawn health down to a science. They keep Springfield-area lawns green and lush with fertilizer and environmentally sound pest control, coupled with knowledge about the local environment that only comes from living and working directly in the community. Their exclusive blend of slow-release granular fertilizer nurtures lawns over a period of several weeks, and their seeding and aeration services promote even longer-lasting growth. Homeowners can even seek answers to their own lawn-care inquiries online, such as "How do I deal with crabgrass?" or "How do I respond when a tree asks for directions?"

Guglielmo Marconi successfully transmits the first radio wave across the English Channel. On the other side of the pond, in Missouri, Nixa Hardware & Seed Co is founded. The year is 1899. Since that auspicious beginning more than a century ago, the hardware store company has grown to "7 acres of savings," and throughout its history, its expansive wholesale collection of plants, fertilizers, soils, and tools has equipped avid gardeners and professional farmers throughout southwest Missouri. Today, nursery workers and plant experts shepherd visitors through pallets of specially concocted livestock feed and bags of carefully formulated fertilizer, while horticulturalists on Nixa's research farm develop tried-and-true plant and grass varieties proven to thrive in local climates. Though the staff is proud of its bulk garden seeds and mulch, a selection of go-karts and generators proves that the company has evolved since its 19th-century origins. The team even purveys renewable-energy biomass furnaces that can keep costs low and household operations sustainable.
