LaTour Tree Service’s maintenance professionals keep yards lush, appealing, and safe. Technicians perform a variety of tree-trimming services, including shaping and canopy elevation. They can also remove dead trees, unwanted trees, trees that are leaning dangerously close to a structure, or trees with branches that spell out swear words. They use a cutting wheel to transform nuisance stumps into wood chips, and they also specialize in tree planting to cover up bare spots in a yard.
Hiltons Home Center helps customers visualize their new floor by allowing them to tiptoe through a show room adorned with multiple sample swatches of carpet, tile, or hardwood. Design consultants aim to pair patrons with their desired material from a catalogue that contains luxury Karndean and patterned Southwind carpeting, as well as rugged Mohawk flooring. Rich coppers and flecks of slate swirl across Karndean Knight tile ($3.02/sq. ft.) forged from stone versatile enough to withstand the dropping of dishes in a highly trafficked kitchen or the dropping of paratroopers from a highly misguided mission. Toes trace the authenticating grains squiggling through slabs of 5-inch Maple Ridge hardwoods, available in shades of natural, dark brown, or red ($5.57/sq. ft.). Clients can also opt for plush carpeting to outfit a room ($0.82+/sq. ft.), treating feet to a surface cushier than a pillow stuffed with gummi worms.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
