Mosquito Squad rids outdoor living spaces of unwanted pests with a wide range of insecticidal services. The treatment will cover up to half an acre of land with a fog specially formulated to eliminate mosquitoes and ticks on contact. Spraying sessions last roughly 15 minutes, and people and pets can return to playing each other in poker in the treated areas just 30 minutes after the fogging. Mosquitoes are thereby banned from the premises for 21 days, after which you will need to bring on the fog again to ward off winged intruders.
NaturaLawn of America devotes itself to caring for both lawns and the environment, eschewing harmful chemicals in favor of eco-conscious products. Natural, organic-based, and biodegradable products are administered to create healthy outdoor spaces that repel intrusive pests such as fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and aging golf-course greens searching for a place to retire.
Technicians determine the individual needs of each lawn to develop custom treatment plans, taking soil tests and enhancing lawns with zero-phosphorus fertilizers, seeding and aeration treatments, or regimens that focus on balancing nitrogen, potassium, and sulfur. The pest-control professionals also fight off invasive species, applying milky-spore grub control—which uses a naturally occurring bacteria—to evict japanese beetles and european chafers. The lawn liaisons deter Lyme disease–carrying creatures with Tick Ranger and send moles on their way with biodegradable repellents or inside jobs to infiltrate the neighbor’s vegetable garden.
Elephant ears, angel’s trumpets, and japanese maples are just a few of the tropical and shade plants Tall Pines Landscaping, LLC procures to enliven lawns. The landscaping outfit plots these exotic varieties next to more traditional trees and shrubs, tending to green spaces with a variety of professional landscaping services that range from routine yard maintenance to more extensive installation and construction work. Whether melding gardens into colonial-themed displays or laying the groundwork for a fishpond that grants wishes, the landscaping team prefaces each task with a thorough consultation to get to know the client and his or her property.
A mother horse and her newborn colt saunter up to the wooden fence, greeting the children eager to pet the creatures' noses. The team members of Graystone Ranch thrive on seeing these types of interactions. Managing 500 acres of woods and pasturelands that serve as a preserve and rehabilitation center for both domestic and exotic animals, the ranch hands form a nonprofit team dedicated to teaching children and adults how man and animals can live in harmony.
Concurrent with such educational programs as summer camps, the grounds also host abundant recreational opportunities with two spring-fed lakes, wooded hiking and horse-riding trails, zip lines, and a petting zoo. Further diversions range from a gem-and-mineral museum to a horse-painting program, which lets kids put their colored handprints or re-creations of a favorite Monet on the sides of a white horse.
Instead of exercises that rely on bulky and often single-user workout machines, Three B Fitness’s workouts revolve around functional movement including kettlebell swings, medicine-ball tosses, and body-weight exercises. These moves can be done simultaneously in groups to help keep energy high and morale up. There is one machine used during the facility’s group fitness classes—it’s the rowing machine, an apparatus that cannot be beat for increasing shoulder strength by mimicking the movements of a whitewater-rafting guide powering a raft through rapids or a bathtub with the shower running.
