Blackwood Landscaping's talented team of landscape artists maintains front and backyard health with lawn services that use environmentally affectionate products. Tend grassy areas of up to 10,000 square feet with an aeration procedure, during which cylindrical plugs punch small holes into the soil to reduce compaction and unearth fossilized lawn ornaments. This professional process diminishes thatch and allows roots improved access to delectable nutrients and nourishing lime. Afterwards, a fueling fertilizer encourages the growth of grass, much like height restrictions on tilt-a-whirls encourage the growth of small children. The machinery used in these processes is 38 inches wide, so any gates must be larger than 38 inches, or the household must own a teleporter.
For more than six years, the technicians at Two Men and a Lawn Mower have primped yards, installed irrigation systems, and assisted clients with home-improvement projects. When they aren't lovingly trimming grass blades with the business end of a shattered CD, the technicians repair and seal decks and pressure wash outdoor surfaces.
Mosquito Terminators of East Tennessee clears the air of mosquitos using a low-toxicity spray composed of pyrethrum, a flower with natural insecticide properties. The company’s specialists prepare outdoor areas for special events such as weddings or barbecues with short-term mists, and banish mosquitos for up to three weeks at a time with barrier mist applications. Those who want around-the-clock relief can opt for automatic misting systems that spray low concentrations of mist several times each day.
Maple's Leather Furniture enshrines sitters in thrones of supple full-grain leather, eight-way hand-tied coils, and—in most cases—sturdy skeletons of kiln-dried hardwoods.

Maple's Leather Furniture can ship swatches to prospective clients who want to match couches to their underwater grotto's seaweed-themed décor, and shipping varies depending on the location of the aforementioned grotto.
