The repair specialists behind Mr. Appliance understand that clients should feel comfortable letting repairmen into their homes. That’s why before every job, homeowners receive a confirmation email with a picture of the uniformed, background-checked technician assigned to address their appliance needs. Upon arrival, the serviceman assesses each job by interviewing troubled appliances and recording the results on an iPad. Homeowners then get to see a detailed quote so they understand the work that needs to be done. Experienced with all brands, the technicians begin by securing the work area, putting on shoe covers, and laying down mats before repairing appliances that range from refrigerators to washing machines.
Beyond in-home service, they also supply clients with resources such as online repair manuals and use-and-care tips. They also adhere to an S.O.S—service on your schedule—policy, letting clients secure appointments through online booking.
Since 2000, Landscape Depot has transformed the landscape of Greater Boston backyard by backyard, supplying everything from fertile mulch and soil to stone pathways and fountains. Technicians help install walls, veneers, and stairs from both natural and engineered stone, and trucks haul yards of mulch straight to homes. The staff also holds regular do-it-yourself seminars, reviewing various projects so homeowners don't have to rely on the shoddy advice of garden gnomes.
The horticultural experts at Perreault Nursery delight gardeners with a bountiful harvest of blossoms, shrubs, mulch, and outdoor ornamentation. The garden gurus accompany each rose bush or Japanese maple with helpful advice on how to care for the plant before sending it off to college. In addition to its blossoming blooms—grown in Perreault’s own greenhouse—and a plethora of trees and shrubs, the garden depot outfits yards with mulch and stone, custom planters, and ornamental pottery or statuary, including fountains and bird baths.
After picking out their new plants, visitors can drop by the nursery’s butterfly house, where hundreds of butterflies flutter amongst babbling brooks, flowers, and benches. Or, for clients who would rather use a trowel to comb their hair instead of raking mulch with it, the professionals offer landscaping services to transform yards into lush oases with creeks, pathways, and beautifully designed flower beds.
