We all like having someone to call when a lawn or garden crisis strikes at 3am. A subset of the larger Southwest Key nonprofit group, Southwest Key Maintenance may well be the only landscaping and cleaning company with 24-hour emergency service. Its affordable annual package delivers 30 visits a year for less than $30 each. This enterprising public service program is a successful example of social entrepreneurship: Its mission to create job growth is backed up by tidy landscapes all over town.
