Owned and operated out of Oregon City, Greenblade Lawn Care fields a team of professional landscapers who expertly tend to the lawns, trees, and shrubs that surround customers’ homes. The team aims to reveal the healthy and verdant yards lying beneath weed overgrowth and makeshift MMA cages through its custom plans, composed of fertilization, aeration, and disease and pest prevention. Homeowners may also opt for 100% organic treatments, which include fertilizer made from the nitrogen naturally found in fish and chicken.
The seasoned technicians at Oregon Install Company call upon their more than seven decades of combined experiences to complete detailed, efficient installations of home entertainment equipment. In addition to wall-mounts for televisions, computer installation, and speaker work, the team also programs remote controls, installs furniture, and peels off any really sticky labels. The friendly and respectful techs also specialize in solving tricky electronics problems, and are confident that they can overcome any installation obstacle, no matter how big or how wirey.
Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.

Their troupe of specialized estimators helps homeowners select the perfect glass windows, set in vinyl, wood, or aluminum. The windows fit snugly into homes, expelling drafts with sturdy custom framing and double-paned faces and allowing light to flood in with Solar View windows. A variety of brands and custom-framing options help create desired windowed environments, whether by using large windows to make rooms airier and sunnier or accentuating newly acquired dungeons with slim window slots. Lifetime Window’s expert technicians also install interior, exterior, and patio doors.
The team at Mattress Warehouse USA understands that buying a mattress is a huge commitment, so they don’t want their customers to feel pressured to get it exactly right the first time. Though they’re confident in their wide selection of memory-foam, pillow-top, and encased-coil mattresses from brands such as Easy-Rest and Corsicana, the store gives buyers a 60-day sleep trial during which they can return their mattress if they decide they don’t like it. Something else customers can do within 60 days is check the price—if another store sells their bed for less than they paid for it, they can return to Mattress Warehouse USA and receive a discount for the difference. Most mattresses can be delivered the same day, and crews can also remove the old mattress for free and drop it off at a local shelter or at a farm upstate where it can play with other old mattresses.
