6 Trusty Lawn Care Resources

If you're interested in finding an eco-friendly way to care for a garden, a trustworthy business to bring a lawn back to life, or a way to clear large swaths of land without using heavy machinery, there are plenty of reliable services that can help you get the job done. In no particular order, here are a few unique lawn care businesses.

First up, #1 is ForeverLawn, which was created out of a desire to bring technologically advanced simulated grass to the residential and commercial landscape markets. After a few years in the turf industry, Ty Allen, Brian Karmie, and Dale Karmie created the company. Since its founding, ForeverLawn has expanded into a number of specialty markets, such as playgrounds, kennel and boarding facilities, and sports fields.

The company specializes in a new breed of artificial grass that is designed to be realistic and sustainable. Synthetic surfaces allow for water conservation, while eliminating the need for fertilizers and pesticides.

Coming in at #2 is Peter Doran Lawn & Landscaping. Established in 1995, this year round full service landscaping company is fully licensed and insured. Mowing, gutter cleaning, fertilizer and weed control, fall cleanup, and snow plowing are just a few of the solutions offered. The company services over 1,500 customers annually in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area of Minnesota.

Peter Doran Lawn offers both residential and commercial landscaping services such as line trimming, edging, and blowing. Stihl gas powered trimmers, chainsaws, and blowers are exclusively used and all debris is hauled away and disposed of at a local compost site in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Landscaping solutions such as decorative mulch, bed weeding, edging, and pond and water features are also available.

Up next at #3, we have Holganix, which was established in 2010 by CEO Barrett Ersek and centers around pioneering a microbial solution, Holganix Bio 800+, which utilizes over 800 soil microbes to boost plant and soil health. The company aims to provide the agronomic results fertilizer users need in a way that is naturally sustainable.

Holganix offers probiotics and fertilizers for a range of uses. This includes lawn care for businesses, homes, and golf courses. Bio 800+ can also be used by farmers to develop soil health and increase crop yield.

At #4, Grosh's Lawn Service was established in 1990 by Tom Grosh and maintains lawns and landscapes for the residents of Washington County, Maryland with an eye toward craftsmanship. The company aims to offer honest, dependable, and quality service.

Grosh's Lawn Service is committed to giving back and for over 30 years has pledged to give 5% or more of the company's profit to the community. The business offers a variety of services, including shrub trimming, fall cleanup, and landscape bed maintenance.

In at #5, Senske is a regional lawn, tree, and pest control company that has been serving Utah, Nevada, Idaho, and Washington since 1947. Each branch is staffed with experts in lawn and tree care as well as pest and weed control.

The company also specializes in light decor and installation. It runs an annual program called Decorated Family, which provides military families with complimentary professional light installation and take-down.

Last but not least, #6 is Rent A Goat, an efficient, eco-friendly way to clear land that uses a herd of goats. The company recommends only making use of their service if large acreages need clearing. Goats have been used in this way for thousands of years and can aid in preparing for new construction, reducing fire danger, and removing unsightly vegetation.

Rent A Goat is located in California and can aid in ridding land of wild grasses, brush, kudzu, wisteria, thistle, and other invasive weeds without using harsh chemicals, manual labor, or heavy machinery. The creatures can reach troublesome areas on hills, slopes, and canyons and they are naturally immune to thorns and ivy. Goats fertilize the soil with their droppings and sterilize the seeds of the plants they eat, reducing the need for future weed abatement.
