Featured on ESPN, MTV, the Today Show, and numerous other media outlets, Fathead’s high-definition images of athletes, team logos, mascots, and stadiums turn vertical surfaces into full-fledged fan meccas. Unlike posters or framed photographs, the images’ high-grade tear- and fade-resistant vinyl adheres directly to the wall without the need for nails or tape. The low-tack adhesive that backs each Fathead makes it easy to remove and relocate stars such as Tom Brady to any smooth surface, allowing his likeness to infuse game rooms with playoff excitement or act as a scarecrow during troublesome Baltimore Raven infestations. The store’s stock even goes beyond athletics, as Fatheads of musicians, cartoon characters, and artistic images add personalized flair to kids’ rooms or living areas.

U.S. Army veteran and owner of Avets Lawn Care, Robert Dunleavy manicures yards back to front with an arsenal of turf taming services. After evicting wayward dandelions, petulant crab grass, and pyromaniacal garden gnomes from the yard, Robert enlists a no-mercy mower to trim blades to an even cut and wields a precise edger to keep driveway borders neat and tidy. Ferocious gusts from the mouth a leaf-blower remove freshly shorn grass remnants and leave lawns as neat and green as Mr. Clean’s wallet on payday. In addition to basic weeding and mowing up-keep, Avets also treats fairways to mulching, hedging, and fall clean-up services. Though prices vary by project and yard, customers can expect to pay approximately $45 for full-service mowing, weeding, edging, and clean-up.
