After five years in business, Grant and Joe Sappy, co-founders and owners of K/W Lawn Care, are still trying to figure out who is the company’s president and who is the CEO. But the pair agrees on the company’s mission: to make their clients’ landscaping visions a reality. Drawing on the expertise of trained horticulturists, the Sappys help clients select the best plants and trees to meet their goals, and then install them using state-of-the-art equipment. In addition to cultivating relationships with architects and horticulturists, the Sappys partner with local providers to minimize the cost of materials such as mulch, fertilizer, or garden-gnome repellent. K/W Lawn Care maintains existing yards with services such as planting, weed control, and lawn cutting and fertilization as well as snow removal and holiday-lighting installations.

The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests' senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store's staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the onsite creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company's founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery's signature sweet-cream ice cream. Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer's choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized mélange.
Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and ice cream cupcakes. Catering is available at many locations.

If performed regularly, Universal Alliance Services' maintenance can prevent fires and furnace damage while improving indoor air quality, reducing allergens, and subduing sneezing grandfather clocks.
