If you have a postage stamp rowhouse backyard and the kind of black thumb that makes sorting out the greenery yourself impossible, you’re going to need a landscaper. Unfortunately, most companies won’t give you the time of day once they see the teeny patch of ground you own. Thank garden gnomes for Thomas Nelson. He specializes in urban yards and can take your rat habitat and make it an oasis. He listens to your needs—say, pet-safe plants—and your limitations—can’t keep even house plants alive—and works with them. His prices are reasonable, and he sticks to budget and timeline, which, when it comes to contractors of any sort, is pretty much the holy grail.
