U.S. Army veteran and owner of Avets Lawn Care, Robert Dunleavy manicures yards back to front with an arsenal of turf taming services. After evicting wayward dandelions, petulant crab grass, and pyromaniacal garden gnomes from the yard, Robert enlists a no-mercy mower to trim blades to an even cut and wields a precise edger to keep driveway borders neat and tidy. Ferocious gusts from the mouth a leaf-blower remove freshly shorn grass remnants and leave lawns as neat and green as Mr. Clean’s wallet on payday. In addition to basic weeding and mowing up-keep, Avets also treats fairways to mulching, hedging, and fall clean-up services. Though prices vary by project and yard, customers can expect to pay approximately $45 for full-service mowing, weeding, edging, and clean-up.

If an item is out of stock, the attendants can have it shipped directly from the company's central warehouse—a cavernous storeroom packed with furniture from top vendors like Coaster, Sealy, and Lifestyle Solutions. Much of the furniture is available online, enabling customers to shop from the comfort of home.
