Though the landscape designers at Tru Landscape Advisor adhere to a systematic, one-size-fits-all process, the results are anything but. Each client—big or small, residential or commercial—receives three visits from the landscaping team. The first is the assessment, when a designer will take a look at the property and hear out the client's ideas, from visions of shade-giving trees to dreams of lawn gnomes that praise outfits of passersby, all outfits. The designer then synthesizes the ideas and constraints into one 5x7 photograph, which is brought to the second appointment for review and tweaks. On the third and final visit, a three-dimensional computer rendering is unveiled along with more photography, allowing the client to fully envision the final, completed product and make an informed decision about moving forward with installation.

The professionals at MosquitoNix ensure that backyard parties, picnics, and barbecues remain human-only affairs via one-time fogging applications and custom-designed, permanent misting systems. Permanent systems mist properties three to four times a day from nozzles around the perimeter of the house that are hidden so mosquitoes can't find them and clog them with chewing gum. Their solutions effectively eliminate mosquitoes with a mix of pyrethrum, permethrin, essential oils, and other active ingredients.
