A home's yard is under constant assault, facing threats such as weeds, insects, and dehydration. Living Water Lawn & Tree Care's licensed technicians address these issues to keep grass, trees, and shrubs looking their best. They administer one-time and recurring services, such as fertilizer application and aeration. In addition to maintaining curb appeal, they also fight back against pests, such as spiders.
The helpful handymen at Hayden Ace Hardware and Ritzville Ace Hardware provide patrons with quality goods at quotable prices. Pick up an ax ($19.99), a smoke detector ($15.99), a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to chop your own firewood and safely mount it on your wall. Gas cans ($11.99 each) and plastic swimming pools ($14.99) provide plenty of space to stash 20 pounds of bird food ($8.99) for the winter, and key-copying services ensure easy access to the goods for all members of the family.

One of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of paints in the Pacific Northwest, Parker Paint has been sprucing up interiors and exteriors since 1945. The company has evolved over the years to keep up with the latest advancements in painting technology. Among the multi-hued fruits of this evolution are weather-ready exterior paints, whose modern formulas scoff at the elements and prove ideal for realistic yet unflattering outdoor murals of the neighbors. With more than 1,600 shades to choose from, painters will find it nearly impossible to settle, like a bowl of jello during an earthquake. Luckily, customers can take advantage of the handy virtual decorator to narrow their choices and forecast what color schemes should be applied to which room, such as aquamarine themes for the exotic-fish room, bright primary colors for the inflatable fire escape, and a variety of yellows for a basement filled with antique butter churns.

Grab a fall mum, one of Plant Farm's many rotating perennials, to add a burst of color to drab flowerbeds ($3.69 for 4").
