The mugo pine makes an excellent container plant and earthy addition to rock gardens ($24.95), and varieties of azaleas provides a healthy dose of color to any drab flowerbed or meat locker ($3.95–$19.95).
Blackwood Landscaping's talented team of landscape artists maintains front and backyard health with lawn services that use environmentally affectionate products. Tend grassy areas of up to 10,000 square feet with an aeration procedure, during which cylindrical plugs punch small holes into the soil to reduce compaction and unearth fossilized lawn ornaments. This professional process diminishes thatch and allows roots improved access to delectable nutrients and nourishing lime. Afterwards, a fueling fertilizer encourages the growth of grass, much like height restrictions on tilt-a-whirls encourage the growth of small children. The machinery used in these processes is 38 inches wide, so any gates must be larger than 38 inches, or the household must own a teleporter.

The friendly and knowledgeable guides at Sandy Bottom Trail Rides lead horseback riders and horse-drawn wagon passengers into the high country surrounding their secluded mountain ranch, owned for three generations by a single clan. Rides range from one hour to a full day pass through the wooded expanses and mountainous terrain of Madison County, where onlookers can spot Big Ball Mountain and even see Tennessee when it isn’t hiding underneath Kentucky. Tucked away in a corner of the ranch lies Little Pine Gem Mine – accessible on the three- and four-hour trips. Here, riders can dismount and dig for gem-quality garnets to haul home. Sandy Bottom enforces no age or weight limit, and even has smaller horses for youngsters, allowing riders of all types to participate in equine journeys and enjoy the fresh mountain air.
Every Complete Clean Pro service starts the same way: a crew of impeccably trained, vetted, and uniformed cleaning technicians arrives with all the equipment necessary to give a dull home a jewel-like sparkle. But from there, a wide range of outcomes can unfold. Hot-water extraction and industrial-strength vacuums safely clean carpets of dirt or stains, pressure washers eliminate mold or graffiti from walls, and a bit of elbow grease cleans outdoor grills of residual cake batter from experiments gone wrong.
This cleaning expertise extends to every room of the house and even beyond. The professionals make appearances at places of business and even manage to de-gunk kitchens for restaurants. But no matter where they are or what they're doing, they strive to use the safest and most gentle cleaning solvents and strategies possible, backing all their services with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
