The renovators at Complete Outdoor Concepts transform backyards into cozy alcoves for cooking and mingling by erecting picturesque patios, arbors, and outdoor kitchens. After surveying earthen foundations, the crew arrays slabs of natural flagstone or patterned concrete into patio-size checkerboards, or weaves slats of cedar, redwood, or composite materials into sturdy decks ready for midsummer lounging. Arbors sway free or cling to homes, shading kitchens from with sunny rays undeterred by walls or ice sculptures shaped like guard dogs. The crew can also plot outdoor cooking areas that center around functional focal points such as built-in stainless-steel grills or ornate fireplaces and pits fueled by gas or wood. The company's landscapers also fringe yards with accent lighting and lush greenery or fences of pre-stained western red cedar, which naturally fends off decay, destructive insects, and neighbors gathering intel about next year's Christmas decorations.
Running water is involved with a lot more than sinks and toilets—it also helps generate electricity, sanitize hospitals, and fuel restaurants. Each function requires a unique brand of plumbing, and Garrison Plumbing Services’ technicians are familiar and experienced with all of them. The staff performs a wide range of services—most completed within 24 hours—ranging from the simple patching of a leak to installing, testing, or repairing pumps and valves after an unspeakable bowling-ball incident. They also carry liability insurance to help protect homeowners.
For more than half a century, the Graham family has waged a quiet battle against North Texas's bugs. First opened by Buck and Polly Graham a few years after the end of World War II, the business has passed from generation to generation. Perhaps the company has survived so long because it's determined to earn customers' loyalty honestly; that's why its technicians provide no-contract service. Another reason is that Graham Pest Control knows where to turn for assistance. The company employs a certified entomologist, who can help battle bedbugs and other critters by blowing their puny minds with an explanation of the scientific method.
As co-owners of Mayco Pest and Termite Control, Brandon Winfree and Todd Mabray spearhead a team of professional exterminators specially trained to rid homes and businesses of pests. Homeowners concerned about invaders can enlist the team for help with chasing off the infestation with EPA-registered and eco-friendly products. Clients can bring in the licensed technicians for one-time services or sign up for year-round plans where exterminators treat homes every 90 days.
