Backed by specialized training from the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, the technicians of Reeves Pest Control work to stymie trespassing pests from ants to moles. Exterminators draw upon an array of critter-discouraging services, including specialized treatments for termites and bedbugs as well as nonchemical alternatives when appropriate. To boost dwellings' defenses in the long term, Reeves' team also offers moisture control and insulation installation, blanketing attics, basements, and crawlspaces with asbestos-free, polyencapsulated warmth.
At Trim-A-Tree Farms, patrons choose their Christmas tree from a plot of still-planted leyland pine trees and chop it down themselves or have an able-bodied staff member cut, net, and load their catch. Guests stroll through rows of lush green trees ($7.50/ft.) in search of the right plant to fill lonely living-room corners as the aroma of pine needles induces memories of a past infatuation with an air freshener. Between passes through the farm, warm up with steaming mugs of hot chocolate or melt fingers over a bonfire's licking flames as little ones trot through fields atop Star, Trim-A-Tree's trusty chestnut pony, during complimentary pony rides. Though additional items are not included in this Groupon, ornaments from the gift shop revamp trees, and adventurous souls can indulge in free temporary tattoos that take the shape of holiday icons or Scrooge's evening gruel.
Joe and John Lunsford wanted to find a way to extend the life of carpets, which often showed their age through stains and discoloration, so they turned to their chemist mother, Jean Beason, for guidance. Her system of on-location carpet dying—which she perfected during years of research, development, and carefully planned carpet-store heists—eventually led them to start Professional Carpet Systems in 1978.
As the Lunsford's startup grew to 75 locations worldwide, they switched their focus to carpet cleaning, using pH-balanced rinsing agents and a rapid-drying system. Now, the IICRC-certified firm also offers spot and odor removal, upholstery cleaning, and allergy-relief treatments backed by a 200% guarantee: if the customer isn’t satisfied with the treatment, Professional Carpet Systems will issue a full refund and pay for re-cleaning by a different company.

The meticulous lawn techs at JTL Lawncare introduce their powerful mowers to overgrown grass blades every 7–10 days to help customers spend less time with their lawns and more time with their families. When they aren't leveling verdant surfaces, the crew trims hedges, removes clippings, extracts weeds, purges gutters, and pressure washes driveways for an additional fee. They ask that clients clear their lawns of all toys, garden hoses, dogs, and outdated moats before each appointment.:m]]
