John F. Nagle, the owner of J&D Landscaping & Lawn Care Inc., draws on more than 30 years of experience to lead a team of technicians who prune and nourish yards. The team’s outdoor maintenance services include fertilizing soil, controlling weeds, and protecting Giving Trees from ungrateful little boys.

Since 1949, Imperial Tile & Marble Works Inc.'s knowledgeable staff members have sourced and distributed fine porcelain, ceramic, and stone tiles and overseen both residential and commercial makeovers. Whether customers are replacing a floor, adding a stone accent wall, or attempting to create the first tiled garage door, Paul and Joe DeSantis guide them through many domestic and imported products from manufacturers including Florida Tile, Laufen, and Marazzi. The owners personally oversee custom fabrication and installation services that incorporate the store’s expansive inventory of tumbled marble, stainless-steel tiles, and Tec grouts and mortars, thoroughly inspecting the finished product to ensure optimal quality and savor the new-tile smell.
Povilas Mecys, the primary painter and manager of Residential Home Painting, sees himself as the creative mastermind behind its signature home-painting services. Before commencing with interior painting projects, he consults with clients to help them select colors that work with their decor to achieve a soothing, harmonious effect. Once colors are picked out, he applies this same attention to detail to preparation. He and the crew lay down drop cloths, tape wood baseboards, and fix nail holes and cracks before applying their brushes.
Just The Basics Home and Office Cleaning dispatches bonded and insured cleaners to clean and beautify area homes and offices, just as they have for the last 20-plus years. With owner-provided cleansers in hand—or Just The Basics' products for an additional fee—the housecleaner wipes dust from all room surfaces before moving on to clean grimier sections of living quarters, such as kitchen appliances, bathrooms, and ceramic tiles. Washing of laundry and dishes is also included in each cleaning. After the service, owners find floors washed and swept, rugs vacuumed, and dust bunnies no longer able to reproduce. Each team member of Just The Basics also undergoes a prescreening before employment, adding to the sense of peace of mind the company hopes their work imparts in their home and office clients.
