Over the years, Lone Star Landscaping, Inc. has built an extensive portfolio of custom outdoor designs. Their punctual and precise artists plant gardens and outfit yards with built-in barbecues, fire pits, and stonewalls. While homeowners amble along their newly built pavers and decks, water fountains trickle and pavilions shelter outdoor-entertainment centers. Their techs can also armor homes with stone façades, giving them a rough-hewn appearance and a sure defense against Napoleon's army.
A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
Spiders. Crickets. Ants. Scorpions. These are but a few of the pests that the state-certified exterminators at Green Home Pest Control are equipped to chase off from household nooks and crannies. The crew employs eco-friendly organic products to flush the pests out, a safer alternative to the harmful chemicals used by other companies. Moreover, should a pesky critter rear its ugly head after the service is complete, the team returns to the home for a free retreatment, a testament to its commitment to helping homeowners reclaim their space.
A bulwark is defined as a defensive wall, and the skilled technicians at Bulwark Exterminating live up to that name with pest control services that stop unwanted creatures in their tracks. Using primarily outdoor treatments, the team seeks out infestations at the source, thus preventing them from invading the home. If they do make it in, however, Bulwark administers interior treatments to finish the job without trying to deter pests using "Beware of Dog" signs.
