Artefacto Landscapes LLC has kept outdoor areas trimmed and tidy for more than 16 years, using their time-tested expertise to address the specific needs and natural behaviors of trees, shrubs, and different grass varieties. Technicians can mow lawns into a respectable crewcut or force clingy weeds to give up their grip on the ground, and trimming services prevent possible hazards and keep overgrown branches from obscuring a shrub’s beautiful eyes. If automatic sprinkler systems exhibit a tendency to leak or target specific mailmen, Artefacto Landscapes can repair them quickly or install a brand new, bias-free model. Firm believers in working in conjunction with natural environmental conditions, the team also develops landscaping plans that conserve water and protect the environment with strategically placed mulch and irrigation systems.
Since 1978, landscape architect and designer Joe Romero and his crew at Landsculptors Inc. have been creating innovative aesthetic solutions for shaded and sun-soaked yards. From irrigation and lighting to decorative walkways and patio construction, their work not only makes clients' homes more beautiful but also adds to their value. Romero and his staff specialize in xeriscaping, an eco-friendly technique that, like giving a goldfish a lung, allows wildlife to flourish while conserving water.
Since 1996, the skilled technicians at New Mexico Quality Air have cleansed air ducts, area rugs, and carpets using nontoxic, eco-friendly products safe for children and pets. By ridding homes of dust and allergens, they protect homeowners from breathing in polluted air, which can cause uncontrollable sneezing or an inadvertent transformation into Swamp Thing. Eliminating dirt buildup can also prevent the breakdown of air-conditioning, heating, and ventilation systems.
Grab your wheelbarrow, drink deeply of the morning air, and race down the rows of razor-soft flowers. Perennials like the wooly butterfly bush start at $8, while friendly cacti like the Sonoran rainbow cactus start at $12. Load up on big-time Western-movie-set props with some tree chollas, or soften the stuntman's fall with a tuft of buffalo grass (grasses start at $9). Better absorbing than a roll of paper towels, a hand-held agave will help sop up spilled Ecto Cooler (starting at $15). The experienced plant-thusiasts at Great Outdoors will help you craft the garden of your fever dreams using less water and labor than you or your dentist thought possible.
