For nearly a decade, Ivey Landscaping's licensed lawn-care professionals have kept commercial and residential lawns looking fresh, lush, and bountiful. Its maintenance professionals review each lawn individually and then design a custom maintenance plan to keep the yard looking as fresh and green as the Incredible Hulk after a nap. Its services range from fertilization and weed control to mowing, aerating, seeding, and pruning. For lawns in need of a complete face-lift, Ivey's in-house landscape designer comes out to assess the grounds and provide designs in 2-D or 3-D renditions. The design services include lighting, irrigation, outdoor living areas, and installation of mature shrubs and trees. As an added perk, new maintenance customers benefit from complimentary curbside leaf collection, which prevents unsightly leaves from piling up and ruining a home's curb appeal or welcoming roving packs of leaf-jumping children.
As leaf-quitting season approaches, now is the ideal time to shift home-care gears from outside to inside. Pick up a Stanley six-piece screwdriver set for $6.99; a VPT rip hammer for $6.29; and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace 3-way soft white light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy four-piece premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge. Get keys made for $2 a pop, or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine ($25–$27 a day to rent).

A bad window-tinting job can mean bubbles, cracks, and purple hues. So each professional installer at Sun Stoppers Window Tinting is required to have at least five years of experience. To set their customers’ minds even more at ease, technicians back up their services with a lifetime performance warranty. Their window tinting keeps interiors from overheating, shields passengers from UV rays, and adds an attractive aesthetic to exteriors. Reduced glare helps drivers stay safe, and if an accident happens, the tinting holds shattered glass in place.
The technicians can also shield paint jobs from weather, rogue pebbles, and bugs with 3M paint-protection film. Beyond automotive services, the technicians also tint residential windows and install solar screen shades to protect furnishings from the damaging effects of the ball of fire that grants us life.
The insured professionals at Garage Doors & More of the Piedmont see to it that garage doors move up and down with ease. During routine tune-ups, they inspect 50 moving parts—including springs, rollers, drums, and teams of miniature draft horses—to make sure everything runs safely and efficiently. If inspections reveal damaged components or structural issues, technicians can replace parts or install brand-new doors. To help homeowners select doors that fit their aesthetics and budgets, the specialists make house calls and give free installation quotes.
