With humble beginnings in 1924, Ace Hardware now comprises 4,600 stores in all 50 states and in more than 70 countries, guiding everyone from seasoned do-it-yourselfers to novices through its massive inventory. Enlist the aid of a knowledgeable pro while sifting through tools, lawn and garden supplies, electrical equipment, and outdoor-living accessories that simplify the hosting of backyard barbecues and the hanging of Christmas lights on zoo animals. Holiday accessories such as 100-count lights ($9.99) and portable fireplaces ($29.99) aid and imbue celebrations with seasonal spirit. During any time of year, a hatchet ($18.49–$36.99) helps forest visionaries see the wood for the trees, and a second mailbox ($13.99–$84.99) doubles the amount of fan mail homeowners can expect to receive.
The landscapers at Cutting for a Cause don't just keep yards pruned and pretty—they also create pristine neighborhoods by raising money for local causes. Based on a rotating schedule, landscapers travel to homes throughout the region to mow lawns, clip hedges, haul off debris, and prune trees to the exact specifications of the squirrels' condo association. Meanwhile, customers can select a favorite charitable organization, which will receive a portion of the proceeds from the work. Larger clients and organizations can get even more involved, generating extra cash by selling lawn care gift cards and drumming up new customers. In the past, this work helped Cutting for a Cause raise money for non-profits, school districts, and local churches.
The flower finaglers at Allison's Florist & Gifts tenderly organize an aromatic assortment of floral arrangements using fresh, seasonal flowers. Re-up spring's pollen-clad contract with 10 glossy tulips ($40), or stir stagnant air with a dozen romantic roses while reciting romantic lines from Timecop ($50). Wicker-basket gardens ($45) corral the lively antics of three to four small blooming or green plants, while scented selections can be supplemented with thoughtful additions such as a balloon ($4), a box of local chocolates ($1.95—$4.50) or a plush animal ($6.95+). Silk arrangements, which outlast the most vivacious fresh flowers, are also available ($45+). Allison's Florist does not work with Teleflora or FTD, so all arrangements are conceived and assembled in-house.
Atlanta’s Best Gutter Cleaners’ crew of certified and insured handymen frees roofs from dangerous debris and leaves homes sparkling clean with myriad services. Crew members scramble up to roofs, freeing cluttered gutters of leaves, frisbees, and expired cookie dough during a 10-point inspection. Equipped with eco-friendly, biodegradable chemicals, the techs blast away grime from siding or windows. To further spruce up dwellings, they repair leaking tiles, fix or install floodlights, and prune tree limbs that tap lewd jokes on bedroom windows in Morse code.
