Potting soil (up to $12) gives flowers a healthy foundation in which to grow up, learn to read, and run for mayor.

Stebbins Anderson houses a full-service Ace hardware store and a full range of Benjamin Moore paints, serving as a mecca of home-repair essentials. Customers can take advantage of services such as screen repair and key cutting or peruse thousands of items that are priced under $25, ranging from electrical supplies and plumbing goods to gardening tools and mystery-bookcase-hinge grease. The expansive assortment of hardware goodies such as Mail Wraps mailbox covers ($18.99), Ace premium enamel ($3.49), and Benjamin Moore color samples ($3.99 each) saves amateur home-repair gurus from wasting precious rehab time by driving around to multiple hardware stores. A knowledgeable staff equips domestic whizzes for just about any home-repair challenge. Make over the kitchen with brightly colored walls and new décor, install a new deck rail to banish looting baboon colonies for good, rid bedrooms of cold drafts with new attic insulation, or score cleaning supplies to scrub away bathtub grime and multiplication tables scribbled on kitchen walls in hot sauce.
As a fourth-generation painter, paint makes up approximately 75% of Leeco Painting owner Ronald Layman's blood. He and his staff of uniformed workers keep homes well maintained not only with painting services, but also with deck and cedar-siding staining, pressure washing, and Christmas light decorating.
Trained painters spread clean, protective coverings over floors before they start interior painting jobs. Employees can further embellish interiors with faux finishing techniques such as multilayered Italian wall glazes and faux-marble columns, having trained at The Faux School—which Layman himself started to teach others the decorative finishing arts. Recycled-glass-embedded concrete adds an eco-friendly, colorful finish to countertops, and acid-stained concrete floors shine with waterproof elegance that can allow homeowners to temporarily turn their living room into a swimming pool.
Leeco Painting donates its services to one deserving family each year via its Paint It Forward program, inspired after doing repair work for a woman whose handy husband would normally have done the job himself but was in Afghanistan serving his second tour of duty.
