Sometimes, a greener world is hard to visualize. For the technicians at Green Thumb Lawn Care, though, it’s as easy as the click of a shutter. Before each project, the lawn-care professionals snap photos of the homeowner’s property and create 3-D images of what the yard would look like after their landscapers finish the job. They also help beautify and maintain customers' current views by trimming hedges, mowing grass, fertilizing lawns, and installing new stone walkways over backyard lava pits.
Affordable Lawncare's staff members take a two-pronged approach to landscaping. They improve surface appearance by mowing grass, removing weeds, and tending to trees and shrubs, and they also initiate change from underground. For example, they aerate soil to promote hearty root growth and plant seasonal foliage such as rye, fescue, and blue grasses. Fertilization treatments encourage the birth of lush greenery and adorable baby earthworms.

ARS Video goes back 25 years, and three generations of its founding family have overseen the company’s growth. What started in 1987 with a room-sized machine continues today on desktop computers: the staff transfers VHS or Hi8 footage, slides, pictures, and 8mm and 16mm film to DVDs. They also transfer audiocassettes and reel-to-reel audio to CDs or recover video from hard drives, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs. Beyond working with long-ago recorded images, the ARS team ventures out to perform videography and editing services for bat mitzvahs and bar mitzvahs, weddings, and TV pilots—the ones who sit in a TV’s cockpit.

Custom Spray's trained turf technicians endow lawns with lushness via aeration and overseeding services. Like a referee separating boxers in a clutch, the driving fingers of the aerator delve 2–3 inches through tough layers of compacted dirt and thatch, releasing their headlock on turf and deflecting approaching noogies. Lawns flourish after aeration, which encourages root development and water retention. During overseeding, technicians customize a gauntlet of hardier grass seeds to join the indigenous blades, making lawns more resistant to insects, disease, and shrunken kids.
