As one of planet Earth's largest historic naval-ship exhibits, Battleship Cove immerses visitors in an authentic World War II experience. Both sides of the battle are represented via legendary warships, an aircraft, and a submarine, offering forth their mysterious interiors to history mavens and the combat-curious alike. Battleship Cove also houses one of the largest veterans' oral-history archives in New England, proffering reminiscences of war heroes, including Dom DiMaggio (brother of Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio) and John McCain. The gift shop makes newly acquired lessons last with memorable tokens such as personalized dog tags ($7) and teakwood desk accessories made from the original decking of the U.S.S. Massachusetts ($19.95), not to mention the ghosts of a thousand metaphor-spewing albatrosses.
Once a small mowing service, PaveScapes Landscaping Services has blossomed into a thriving business ready to tackle all outdoor needs. Owner Marco Pavao, following his father’s lead, opened the business in 2005, and now dispatches his team to residences across southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. During the spring and summer, the crew designs and installs landscaping, trims trees and bushes, and eliminates weeds and crabgrass. As the cold winter air blows in, customers can recruit PaveScapes Landscaping Services to plow snow from the driveway or take down enemy fortresses during snowball fights.
The licensed and insured techs at Ranescape shepherd their customers' landscaping plans from design concepts, execute physical construction, and keep greens green with timely maintenance. With an eye on environmentally friendly practices, they can forge fixtures such as walkways, sprinkler systems, or stone walls enclosing a prized lawn flamingo. Techs also care for yards with scheduled services ranging from mowing and pruning to grub control and aeration. Ranescape’s technicians work closely with specialized suppliers, sourcing all materials used to create landscapes and sew in new blades of grass.
Without having to finish each service by muttering, "Hasta la vista, baby," and riding off on a motorcycle, the Mosquito Terminators leave a lasting impression on homeowners by liberating backyards from pesky disturbances. Armed with a natural-based solution that is safe for families and pets, the company's assassins spritz exterior spaces with treatments that kill and repel mosquitoes for up to three weeks. Barrier sprays work around the clock and, prior to outdoor gatherings such as barbecues and pool parties, hosts can utilize event sprays so guests aren't constantly swatting the air or forced to roast marshmallows over citronella candles. Misting systems are also available, and automatically dispense low concentrations of solution insecticide several times daily.
