The techs at Utah Lawn know that a healthy, green yard can sometimes come at the expense of the environment and homeowners’ pocketbooks. To help minimize those expenses, they inject Enviromoist’s polymer-based substance into root systems, which distributes nourishing plant food while creating a semipermeable barrier that prevents water and vital nutrients from leaching away. Not only does the product help to cut water waste by up to 50%, it also helps pare down water bills, and can even help reduce soil compaction and the maintenance required to keep a lawn looking verdant.
Beyond root health, the landscaping specialists offer a wide range of lawn-care services and solutions, such as underground sprinkler systems that covertly distribute water to thirsty grass blades. When not nourishing plots, techs stay busy making them more beautiful by building water fixtures such as ponds, streams, and waterfalls. Instead of packing up for the winter, specialists strap on snow boots and continue to keep yards tidy by removing snow clumps and slick sheets of ice, helping cut down on the number of slips and falls experienced by homeowners, visitors, and any hibernating bears prone to walking in their sleep.

In 1916, Winder Dairy still delivered its bottles of milk by horse and wagon?but only because founder John R. Winder found the quadruped "more efficient" than the Model T delivery truck brought in the year before. Today, under the new moniker Winder Farms, fifth- and sixth-generation Winders uphold their family's reputation for speed, delivering cooler boxes packed with more than 300 farm-fresh products to customers' doorsteps each night. All-natural milk?free of artificial growth hormones or antibiotics and housed in classic glass milk jugs?takes 24 to 36 hours to travel from farm to doorstep, and natural and organic skinless and boneless chicken also zips to grills and skillets.
All deliveries are made overnight and guaranteed by 8 a.m. Customers can select their desired goods online, and recurring orders grant the freedom to remove "buy eggs" from the to-do list permanently tattooed on your upper back. Winder Farms also sells wholesale quantities of its milk, juice, and bakery items, as well as complete meals such as ravioli and enchiladas.
