Bushnells Landscape Industries boasts a vast array of décor for outdoor spaces and gardening tools, as well as flowers and plants, 90% of which are grown on-site. Shoppers can browse the nursery garden and green thumb through locally grown annuals ($3.98 each; three for $10.50) to add a splash of color to black-and-white front yards that were built in the 1950s. As 5-gallon hybrid roses ($27.98 each), 7-inch tapered candles ($4.50 each), or Cretan hand-thrown pottery ($75+) await to brighten porches, patios, and yards, thick-leaved succulents and spiny cacti ($4.98–$25.98) dissuade undiscerning vegetarians from devouring entire gardens.
The greenery experts at Scotts LawnService respect each yard's eccentricities. By conducting an analysis that lists every lawn's strengths and weaknesses—from its turf density to the soil type—they can better customize their treatments to enhance a home's or business's outdoor landscape. The team uses professional Scotts products to fertilize the lawn and expel unwelcome weeds, spreading no more than necessary in order to help preserve the beauty of nature more tactfully than vacuum-sealing every tree. All technicians carry certification from the Scotts LawnService Training Institute. They brandish their expertise to perform specialty services such as aeration, winterization, and weed control.

A full-service lawn-and-landscape-maintenance company, Truckee Meadows keeps yards verdant with the help of plant experts, years of green-thumb training, and materials from local businesses. Staff members work closely with clients to actualize their wildest landscaping fantasies, consulting with horticulturalists and well-crafted machinery to construct scale models of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon or topiaries shaped like the Lighthouse at Alexandria ($42/hour labor rate for planting and cleanup). Yard technicians shave the beards off of once-hibernating lawns, trimming grass with a package that includes mowing, edging, and blowing of sidewalks and driveways ($20 for 1,500 sq. ft.), and professional rakes de-thatch scruffy backyards ($100 for up to 2,000 sq. ft., $10 for every 500 sq. ft. thereafter), freeing grass from the suffocating press of natural debris. Each landscaping job is tailored to the unique needs of the site, with technicians accounting for eccentricities ranging from uneven surfaces to the appearance of teleporting pine trees.

Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread?s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
