In 2000, Keith Smith created a pond for his backyard. The plip-plop of the water was invigorating and his new water-gardening hobby was a pleasure, so he decided to share both with the world. Since then, his company Backyard Depot has grown from a local operation specializing in decorative water features to a full-service landscaping business capable of grooming residential and commercial yards with a wide array of services. After overhauling lawns with a full mowing and weeding, Keith’s staff can also build landscape features such as an outdoor fireplace or a tall fence to keep feral Santa Clauses from taking up residence.

Muscle-bound moving crews in lime-green polo shirts and smart black caps travel to doorsteps armed with boxes, dollies, and other essential moving tools. After a walkthrough of each home to hone in on any delicate objects that could require special care, crews load furniture and boxes into pristine white trucks. When the team arrives at objects' new homes, they nimbly place objects in their designated rooms before presenting a small housewarming gift. Customers can purchase the company's specialty boxes before the move, as well as pads, bubble wrap, and other supplies, to get a head start on the move.
With 20 years of experience as a self-employed handyman, Charlie Potter could handle most home-improvement jobs, but he possessed enough humility to know he couldn't do everything himself. So he and his wife had an idea: develop a network of specialty contractors ready to take on any job, no matter how specialized. This strength-in-numbers approach launched Contractors Just 4U, and today, more than 34 licensed-and-insured contractors serve home- and small-business owners with services that range from complete remodels to basic handyman services. Roofing, flooring, and painting jobs are just a few examples of the services within Contractors Just 4U's repertoire, which also includes landscaping, ghost busting, and interior design.
