In the mid-1960s, friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano began giving weekly lawn-care workshops to green-thumbed homeowners. After watching students become frustrated because they couldn't produce professional-quality results, Bob and Tony decided to go into business caring for lawns themselves and building lawn-nourishing machines to maintain their hard work between visits. Those same machines would later be patented and used in the duo's 500 lawn-care-franchise locations across the United States and Puerto Rico.
Lawn Doctor's technicians arrive at yards ready to sow seeds with the patented Turf Tamer, control pests, trim up lawns, and perform lawn-mower maintenance. Clients and technicians come up with a lawn-care program to keep greens in good health after professionals have a chance to inspect soil quality, grass condition, and Stonehenge replicas constructed by religious moles. The company guarantee promises a reapplication or a full refund if its services are unsatisfactory.

Propane Genie replenishes propane provisions by delivering freshly topped-off tanks. Gas-grillers schedule deliveries by visiting the company’s website, where a prompt asks them to enter their zip code and pledge their allegiance to coal-less cooking. Overanxious tanks are then placed on doorsteps or given a mild sedative while they wait to be replaced by a tamer tank. Propane Genie fills all of its tanks to capacity, ensuring fulfilling grilling sessions and preventing bun-only barbecues. For an additional fee, full tank deliveries are also available to customers without a tank to exchange.

Because customers must finish the pieces themselves, the furnishing-whisperers of Wood You gladly demonstrate the how-tos of furniture finishing with step-by-step instruction.
