One Guy and a Machine owner Joe Barbagallo and his team of professionals collaborate with the natural layout of customers' outdoor spaces to create functional and innovative design solutions. The team adorns properties with patios, retaining walls, and flowerbeds, and keeps investments healthy with regular seeding, mowing, and aerating services. With an artful eye, landscapers transform flat surfaces into synthetic putting greens, or add another dimension with hardscape walls and stairways. The price of landscaping services will vary depending on the cost of materials, labor, and the amount of Gushers required to distract mischievous gophers from thwarting the job, but Barbagallo offers free written estimates to each customer to provide an approximate overall job cost.

In the early days of home weatherization, working to make a home energy efficient wasn't exactly a science but Triangle Reconstruction is on the forefront of changing that standard. Using new technology and building science, they look at the effects and interactions of building materials, components, and methods of assembly to employ high-tech solutions that save clients money and allow them to live more sustainably. That information lets them know exactly where to install new insulation or other high-tech protection from the elements. In crawl spaces, that might me a vapor barrier or sump pump; whereas in attics, radiant barriers inspired by NASA technology help keep temperatures stable and storage boxes defying gravity year-round.
