For more than 40 years, homeowners have entrusted their yards to the experts at Weed Man. Perhaps it’s because the employees do more than just perform lawn-care services—they cultivate close working relationships with their clients. This means they are available by telephone or smoke signal any time of the day and promptly respond to faxes or emails within 48 hours, and they also explain the technical side of lawn care to their clients. Of course, what keeps customers coming back is the attention the staff members lavish on grass during services, which range from eradicating weeds with EPA-approved products to aerating lawns to ousting destructive insects.
The brothers Antonius are 35-year veterans of the carpet-cleaning craft who have a skilled staff of technicians on hand to meet each appointment. Your pile-pillaging odyssey begins with a 15-minute carpet evaluation. Then, one of several cleaning methods is deployed, depending on your dirt's modus operandi. Steam desoils deep below your carpet's buttery crust, and an absorbent powder extraction eliminates drying time. The process evicts carpet-dwelling critters such as dust mites, while creating a healthier environment for invited beasts, such as dogs and ferrets that know how to squeak to the tune of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Call ahead for an appointment.
Named among the top five local craft stores by Fox 8 City Voter, the shop serves as a workshop for burgeoning crafters, as well as a gift shop and a source for inspiring seasonal project ideas. Staff artists teach workshops in three crafting genres: jewelry, housewares, and needle arts, offering a well-rounded curriculum that helps students with all-around constructive knowledge. Just as fish parents drop their babies into the water to teach them how to swim, teachers instill the fundamentals of handicraft by walking students through their first project during classes. Inside the eclectic gift shop, more than 65 local artists display handmade loot such as purses, hair accessories, pottery, and greeting cards, each unique in design. The community-minded store also encourages crafters of all skill levels to gather under its roof, whether to trade inspiration, project ideas, or swap unneeded craft supplies.
