Masters Professional Services’ owner, Dwayne Robert, was ahead of the energy-efficiency curve. He entered the industry more than 15 years ago and has seen insulation techniques evolve and others flop, such as stapling plastic sandwich bags over holes. Currently, he and his staff have a range of tools and methods at their disposal to keep homes energy efficient. Their methods include blown-in, roll, and batt insulation, as well as thermography. Throughout his professional career, Dwayne has also learned government cost-saving tactics, which he happily passes on to his customers. In addition to these energy- and money-saving practices, Masters Professional Services offers nonchemical pest control, HVAC services, and attic and crawl space restoration.

Backed by a decade of experience, The Groundskeeper's owner Jeff Hendrix dispatches and oversees fully licensed and insured crews to tidy homes' leafy parlors. Lawn rangers will rove over up to half an acre of grass with their hungry mowers before cuddling up to fences, flower beds, and driveways with string trimmers. Then, they'll edge around pathways, ensuring that wayward weeds don't start spelling out rude messages on sidewalks, and blow away any mower residue, debris, or leaves for a span of flawless verdure.

One of the largest nurseries in northwest Florida, Floral Tree Gardens surrounds its customers with a land-grown sea of lush foliage and vibrant blooms. Row upon row of the outdoor gardens are painted with yellow daisies and purple cornflowers, and loquat and avocado trees cast shadows over shoppers. Plant purchases may be complemented with garden accents such as clay pots and metal butterflies, which, unlike their living counterparts, follow orders to sit and stay. Floral Tree Gardens' stock changes with the seasons; its facility brims with pumpkins in the fall and poinsettias in the winter. It also stocks fauna at an onsite pond, where visitors can fish for bass or pygmy submarines.
