Green Works Lawn and Leaf lavishes yards with natural, organic, and sustainable TLC. To conserve fuel and avoid noise pollution, owner Drew Hojnacki favors rakes over leaf blowers, shovels over snow blowers, and garden hoes over Roomba rototillers. Aeration ($35–$50, depending on lot size) loosens uptight dirt, and an application of OMRI organic fertilizer ($35–$50) feeds hungry turf and soil without environmental-indigestion-causing chemicals. Untidy terraces opt for a general cleanup ($65–$150), and shrubs seek out a pruning ($10–$30 per shrub) before an important interview or after a bad break-up.
With spring spreading like a bag of spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home and lawncare projects underway. Reclaim the yard from winter's occupation with Adams Adirondack stacking chairs ($14.99 each) and an Ace Flexogen 50-foot garden hose ($19.99). Illuminate outdoor living spaces with a 6-pack of Solar Walk Lights ($12.99) or the welcoming blaze inside a Living Accents portable firepit ($29.99). Ace also covers indoor bases with products and services for tree-free areas of the home. If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge.
Tile adds a clean, creative look to kitchens, bathrooms, and patios, but it's also an eco-friendly flooring material that requires no harsh chemicals or maintenance to keep it gleaming. Staff members at A World of Tile help clients to upgrade living spaces with this environmentally friendly alternative through in-house design consultations and a range of ceramic, stone, and specialty tiles. They amass products from across the globe, offering unique designs and SunTouch heated options that warm toes during cold winter months and prevent chihuahuas from shaking the whole year. During free hands-on workshops, staffers teach customers how to correctly install tile themselves or provide referrals to local contractors.
