Dan and Dana, the D's of D & D Professional Mowing, have been buzzing local soil coifs since 2004. Thanks to the business' lawn-owner-friendly practices, multi-day jobs keep a consistent crew, so clients have time to get to know them, and they have time to learn the route through the hedge maze. Prices depend entirely on the size of the job, but the average lawn runs around $30–$50, including edging and leaf-blowing the sidewalk and driveway. The flora-fashioners will happily give a free price estimate for other services, such as mulching ($80–$400 on average), garden-tilling ($50–$100 on average), or tree-debris removal ($50–$200 on average).
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.

The professionals of Gateway Pest Control don't simply spray bugs and move on. They study pest behavior and biology, which better equips them to prevent future outbreaks and safeguard homes with as few chemicals as possible. To this end, each staff member fortifies homes and residences with the company's own brand of eco-friendly, integrated pest management that attacks pest control on multiple fronts. By removing pests' access to food and water, technicians keep large groups from taking refuge in homes and offices, and pesticides made from natural sources keep services from damaging Earth's precious resources, including plants, fresh air, and gravity.
All plants are gathered from native Missouri fauna that have consented to have their clippings or seeds donated to science, and are grown in high-quality potting soil that does not contain peat moss, which can make it more difficult for plants to adapt to their new homes. For shipped orders, Missouri Wildflowers Nursery guarantees that your plants or seeds will arrive in good condition, and that all species are true to their name and professed veganism.
Chartreuse ribbons encircle a bouquet of pink roses and other delicate, unifying accents elevate My Secret Garden’s collection of blooms to gift-worthy realms.
