The Mosquito Man exiles pesky mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas from yards to maximize relaxation outside. A specialist dons a backpack fogging system and unleashes a torrent of spray on at-risk areas, which will exterminate adult 'skeeters upon impact over the course of 20–40 minutes. After a 30-minute dry time and a 5-minute eulogy, the yard is once again frolic ready for pets, children, and guests without lingering hints of odor or residue. The treatment lasts for 21 days with a guarantee, ensuring biting bugs stay away from outside functions, backyard soirees, and grass-eating contests.
The yard specialists at GrassPlus & Associates aerate earth-hair without the use of chemicals by way of a core plug aerator that opens up the thatch for breathing, seeding, and hiding family heirlooms. In the warm summer months, pasture primpers use a high-phosphorus, high-potash fertilizer by Lesco to nourish the soil from which picnic-friendly blades spring. When the temperature cools off, a high-nitrogen fertilizer is used instead. Those who opt for the overseeding service following aeration and fertilization see their turf bolstered by rye grass in the warm seasons and a rye-fescue mix in the cooler months.
JT's Landscaping & Lawn Care founder Jimmy Tompkins cut his first lawn as a professional landscaper in 1997, when he was still in high school. With a truck loaned to him by his parents, he went door-to-door in the Raleigh area and offered his lawn-manicuring services. Soon, his clients asked him to handle more complicated work, and a few years later, his one-man operation birthed a landscaping business composed of experienced team members.
Today, he and his staff install and maintain all manners of outdoor decoration, from designing and constructing patios to mowing lawns and putting up holiday lights. Their expertise also extends to the insect world, where their integrated pest-management systems stem off invasions from unwanted guests while reserving pesticides and small-scale explosives as a last resort.

Fully licensed and insured, experts at Esthetically Correct transform yards into groomed, eye-pleasing spaces with landscaping services that range from routine maintenance to elaborate design and construction work. A professional lawn mowing begins with careful edging and trimming work, which quashes a lawn's natural temptation to claw its way across sidewalks, into gardens, and over guests dozing in low-slung hammocks. Mowers then trim grass to an attractive, even length suitable for barefoot strolls and competitive croquet. Clippers clear debris by blowing away shredded grass before departing, leaving yards ready to showcase in the background of family photos or the foreground of ant photos after about 45 minutes.
The insured technicians at Luxury Exterior Solutions work to reduce home’s heating and cooling bills by barricading outside temperatures. To achieve this, they rely on a signature Green Energy Barrier material that’s designed to reflect heat in both directions. When installed in the attic, the barrier blocks incoming heat, keeping homes cool in the summer. During winter, heat attempting to escape the house bounces back, allowing owners to remove the giant fur hat covering the roof.
