Affordable Lawncare's staff members take a two-pronged approach to landscaping. They improve surface appearance by mowing grass, removing weeds, and tending to trees and shrubs, and they also initiate change from underground. For example, they aerate soil to promote hearty root growth and plant seasonal foliage such as rye, fescue, and blue grasses. Fertilization treatments encourage the birth of lush greenery and adorable baby earthworms.
Sometimes, a greener world is hard to visualize. For the technicians at Green Thumb Lawn Care, though, it’s as easy as the click of a shutter. Before each project, the lawn-care professionals snap photos of the homeowner’s property and create 3-D images of what the yard would look like after their landscapers finish the job. They also help beautify and maintain customers' current views by trimming hedges, mowing grass, fertilizing lawns, and installing new stone walkways over backyard lava pits.
The berry experts at Triple B Farms invite Pittsburgh-area crop gatherers to fill farm-supplied baskets with fresh-grown seasonal fruits and vegetables.

The delicious fruit’s devotees turn out en masse every year for the annual festival, which is a celebration of all things strawberry and more, including a visit from the Pennsylvania Honey Queen, an inflatable all-ages obstacle course, a rock shaped like baseball great Darryl Strawberry, and a strawberry-themed pancake breakfast and lunch (not included in the value of the Groupon). Triple B Farms’ Strawberry Fest also entertains children with a playground, farm animals, tube slides, and rope mazes; parents can peruse the farm's expansive selection of fresh-grown produce, baked goods, jams, and rustic lifestyle guides.
