The grass gurus at Spring-Green Lawn Care help usher sprouts into emerald adulthood. Lawns pestered by bugs will find spray-on solace thanks to the three-step insecticide program. Not only will turf taste a sweet summer mist that evicts ants, spiders, fleas, ticks, and Tinkerbells, but a springtime grub-control application will work to reduce their underground colonies as well. The five-step fertilizer and weed-killing program aims to arm lawns against spring and summer weeds through a quintet of sprays and fertilizer spreadings. First, a late-spring or early-summer spritz shields lawns from unsightly crabgrass outbreaks before a sequence of lime and fertilizer treatments strengthens strands and fosters root development. Spring-Green's terrain masters will also help homeowners decide how to best prepare yards for colder months, prescribing fall seedings or hot-chocolate sprinkler systems.
At each locally owned Weed Man outpost, professionally trained and certified landscapers bring decades of lawn-care experience to their weed-control, fertilizing, and aeration services. They strive to keep lawns green and healthy by using an exclusive, 65% slow-release granular fertilizer, performing regular seeding, and doing regular pest management to combat insects, weeds, and disease.
LA Boxing’s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, LA Boxing sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
Inside the large dining room of Vesuvio’s Italian Kitchen, light floods in through lofty windows over plates of steaming homemade lasagna and lobster-stuffed ravioli, carried hot from the kitchen by servers. Dark booths line a pair of walls, where a mural window looks out through curving arches onto a bright sea, dotted by sailboats and famous philosophers surfboarding. Next to the stone fireplace, rows of tables are arranged across the rustic hardwood floor, and wine and beer flow freely below the tiled awning that hangs over the bar. A range of house specialties populate the lunch and dinner menu, and an expansive salad bar supplies garden-fresh greens.
