Filled with a variety of U.S.–made furniture, Home Solutions at Ace bedecks drab rooms with custom-made wood furniture and fabrics. Wide selections of table lamps ($99–$150) can enlighten spiritually afflicted tables, and a variety of torch lamps ($99–$150) can help brave houseguests scour their way through the man cave. Savor supper while sitting on a new dining side chair ($99–$150) to prevent side cramps from squatting or shimmying over the main course. Knick-knacks, figurines, and vases ($99–$150) fill any barren shelf, and wall décor including pictures and metal works clothe naked walls and under-dressed paneling. Customers looking to customize their household equipment can browse through a variety of Oak Creek custom American–made furniture, choosing from Alder or Oak or special ordering several other woods. Matchy-matchers can choose from six different stain options or create a color to match existing furniture. The brand also custom-builds, so there's no argument on a request for an extra door to another dimension, where socks own people-puppets.

A full-service lawn-and-landscape-maintenance company, Truckee Meadows keeps yards verdant with the help of plant experts, years of green-thumb training, and materials from local businesses. Staff members work closely with clients to actualize their wildest landscaping fantasies, consulting with horticulturalists and well-crafted machinery to construct scale models of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon or topiaries shaped like the Lighthouse at Alexandria ($42/hour labor rate for planting and cleanup). Yard technicians shave the beards off of once-hibernating lawns, trimming grass with a package that includes mowing, edging, and blowing of sidewalks and driveways ($20 for 1,500 sq. ft.), and professional rakes de-thatch scruffy backyards ($100 for up to 2,000 sq. ft., $10 for every 500 sq. ft. thereafter), freeing grass from the suffocating press of natural debris. Each landscaping job is tailored to the unique needs of the site, with technicians accounting for eccentricities ranging from uneven surfaces to the appearance of teleporting pine trees.

Bushnells Landscape Industries boasts a vast array of décor for outdoor spaces and gardening tools, as well as flowers and plants, 90% of which are grown on-site. Shoppers can browse the nursery garden and green thumb through locally grown annuals ($3.98 each; three for $10.50) to add a splash of color to black-and-white front yards that were built in the 1950s. As 5-gallon hybrid roses ($27.98 each), 7-inch tapered candles ($4.50 each), or Cretan hand-thrown pottery ($75+) await to brighten porches, patios, and yards, thick-leaved succulents and spiny cacti ($4.98–$25.98) dissuade undiscerning vegetarians from devouring entire gardens.

A thorough dethatching bids thick patches of brown, breathless blades adieu, allowing more water, fertilizer, and air to reach sprightly soil and resolute roots. A pressure washing, tree pruning, and leaf removal rounds out the service, resulting in healthy lawns perfect for touch football, games of catch, and gnome tossing.
