Bug Master’s crew of bug busters keeps homes from infestation and homeowners from finding refuge atop chairs with effective pest-control treatments. Armed with products such as Termidor, they oust subterranean termites eating away at homes and can rid abodes of bedbugs, fleas, roaches, and other pests.
When pests invade homes, Bug Brigade's technicians are never far behind with the latest insect-evicting baits, sprays, and traps. The specialists perform field trial studies for DuPont, Syngenta, Bayer, and other companies, helping staffers learn the latest approaches in ousting infestation. Using these methods, the company evicts annoying critters such as roaches, termites, mice, ants, and curse-word-weaving spiders from homes through services they provide in recurring or one-time visits. As a testament to its focus on the community, the locally owned company also loans its time pro bono to the Seminole County Sheriff Department's Division of Children and Family Services to ensure pest-free environments for children in need.
Turfmaster’s lawn care technicians are experts when it comes to Florida grasses. Since 1994, the flora pros have undergone extensive training to ensure they can properly diagnose yellowing blades or bald spots. They customize every bout of lawn care to target specific maladies—such as insect, weed, or minor disease control—and take into consideration the time of year and migration patterns of garden gnomes. All of their applications are backed by a 30-day guarantee and free service calls.
Cottage by the Sea beautifies abodes with cottage-style furniture and beachy accessories. Seafaring shoppers can infuse their homes with ocean accents such as seashell-framed mirrors and coral prints without having to barter with miserly mermen.
Originally opened in 1981 by Greg and Veronica Burghardt, the RockAWay Garden Center is now tended to by the couple's sons, Greg Jr. and Brian, who draw on their childhood gardening experience and a pair of Rutgers University degrees in plant science and landscape design to nurture the verdant nursery. The nursery blooms with Florida-friendly vegetable plants, flowers, trees, and shrubs, and arms gardeners with a full line of Dr. Earth organic soils and fertilizers. During the Yuletide season, a tree lot teems with Fraser, Douglas, and Concolor firs from the family's upstate New York farm. RockAWay's team of landscaping specialists installs professional arrangements for home yards, customizing designs to best complement a customer's style or collection of He-Man garden statues. True to its mission of promoting local gardening, the center partners with Seabreeze Elementary School to lead students in nurturing herbs, vegetables, and plants in their school's greenhouse.
