The dedicated grass whisperers at Scapes Environmental Design spruce up front-yard foliage with a retinue of mulch-cutting mowers. Green carpets of up to 4,500 square feet are scythed once a week, kept short enough so as to not sprout unsightly dandelion colonies or swallow up immobile sunbathers. Each mowing is accompanied by an edging of grassy cuticles from sidewalks, driveways, and front curbs, the viridian debris eventually whisked away by a blower. Whether for a month or a one-time service, Scapes Environmental Design relieves homeowners from the onerous task of intimidating grass back into the netherworld, freeing up time for weekend getaways or getting to the bottom of their pet parakeet's recent sullen comments.
Equipped with powerful truck-mounted equipment and a Sears-approved satisfaction guarantee, the certified team of technicians thoroughly scours carpets. After an initial inspection to identify the heavily trafficked areas, the insured staff sprays a warm cleaning solution deep into carpet fibers to blast out embedded dirt and discarded pagers. For one to two hours, a high-powered extraction sucks out dust and soot as a pH-balancing fiber rinse breaks down any traces of leftover cleaning solution, leaving carpets dry, soft, and ready to double as a dining-room table.
