A pesticide-free and carbon-neutral company, Lush Eco Lawns avoids harsh chemicals in lawn-grooming services. The crew includes a certified arborist and gardener. In addition to offering basic services, such as weekly mowing, core aeration, and hedge trimming, crew members also design rolling landscapes. The Lush Alive program feeds grass plots with a unique fertilizer, which brims with microorganisms and nutrients that work with nature rather than replacing grass blades with painted steel slivers. When the Lush Eco Lawns staffers aren't nurturing botanicals, they attend workshops and trade shows, where they proudly display their verdant thumbs.

Every so often, a pint-sized train chugs past, wending its way through lush foliage and myriad attractions. This type of whimsical ride is typical of an amusement park, but the surrounding greenery suggests a different locale. The train is driving through a one-stop shop and tourist destination known as Art Knapp Plantland, a 5-acre nursery, garden-supply store, kid-friendly playland, model-train oasis, and much more.
Art Knapp Plantland's inventory runs the gamut of plant supplies, from actual plants—such as flowers, trees, and the exotic pink blueberry featured in the video tour—to the fertilizers and landscaping equipment integral to kempt yards and vigilante park maintenance. While touring the grounds, patrons can also find an eclectic array of non-gardening items, from jewellery and golf shoes to hot-tub equipment.
The smorgasbord shopping center also hosts family friendly activities including a train ride, a mini-golf course, a model-train exhibit, and a zoo-like area that facilitates interspecies friendships without the sleep-inducing sorcery used by teddy bears.
