The staff at Zoots Dry Cleaning extracts stains and stress by pairing eco-friendly dry-cleaning services with the convenience of extended evening and Sunday hours, 24-hour drop-off and pickup services (available at most locations), and an automated drive-thru system. Team members clean clothes, draperies, bedding, and rugs with a biodegradable solvent as opposed to harsh PERC chemicals, and some staff are trained to expertly excise stains from the delicate lace and beadwork of bridal-gown bodices. Most stores also have a tailor on location who is able to alter ensembles in a snap. Customers get e-mail notifications when orders are ready or they can download a smartphone app to keep a close eye on the status of their dirty laundry.

For the past 87 years, Weston Nurseries has provided garden goods and services through good days, bad days, and days of triffids. If your plant expertise doesn't even go back 87 seconds, Weston's staff of friendly, knowledgeable chlorophyll enthusiasts will happily guide potential green thumbs through a library of nearly 1,800 plants. Assorted perennials start at $8.95 and stand ready to be planted in fertile crescents throughout the Super Mario Brothers level you've built in your backyard. The less soil-inclined can gussy up a porch or balustrade with a hanging planter full of colorful annuals (starting at $32). Otherwise, sweeten summers with highbush blueberry cultivars ($36 for a #3 pot) or give the lily of the valley something to be jealous of with a Rose-of-Sharon ($36 for a #3 pot). Every gardener worth his or her pruning shears knows of the earth's constant craving for crustaceans, so feed its need with Coast of Maine Lobster Compost ($7.99 per one-cubic-foot bag). Gardening accessories are also plentiful; gear up with phalange-guarding West County women's garden gloves ($27.99) and an OXO 3L watering can ($19.99), to name just a few.
Neo Interiors looks for modernity in both form and function, culling furniture with contemporary shapes that also boast multi-functionality. Shoppers travel throughout a 15,000-square-foot showroom, alighting on pieces imported from Italy, Belgium, and Spain. The large and ever-changing inventory hails from approximately 15 distributors, each of which represents anywhere from 10 to 20 manufacturers. All-purpose design pops up everywhere, from updated takes on the sleeper sofa to wall-mounted storage units, whose glossy drop-down doors double as a makeshift bar or a stage for impromptu puppet shows. Italian Magniflex mattresses wrap soy-based memory foam in linen or organic cotton covers, some of which feature reversible designs that alternate between soft and firm support. Eco-friendly elements also ignite the shop's selection of freestanding bio ethanol fireplaces, whose smoke-free flames are powered by fuel harvested from grains and potatoes instead of gas, electricity, or magic spells.
D’Lanes Painting's insured technicians do more than cover homes in even coats of paint—they cover all of their bases. For instance, they consult with every customer to discuss the gloss level, color, and brand of paint that the client prefers. They include surface preparation, priming, finish coats, and cleanup in every contract, leaving no step overlooked. And all of their contracts, which are covered by a two-year limited warranty against peeling and blistering, are managed by the owner, Junior Lanes, rather than being outsourced to an independent contractor or a bunch of kids with paintball guns. Besides improving homes’ aesthetic and resale value with painting, the technicians stain decks and power wash wood, vinyl, and aluminum surfaces.
