Clean Cut Lawn Care’s team of licensed-and-insured technicians tame unruly yards and home exteriors with their landscaping and outdoor services. When not cleaning leaves and debris from gutters and making sure water flows freely through downspouts, they keep chimneys free from fire hazards with thorough inspections and cleanings. They also help homes’ greenest parts, laying fertilizers to encourage lusher growth and trimming branches that stray too closely to roofs and windows. They also remove trees in danger of falling and shrubs that have started to grow into kitchens and steal cereal from the cupboards.
The professional landscape engineers at Lawn Care Service of Topeka carefully chop lawns' tresses to give them a clean-cut luster. Once an overgrown chlorophyll carpet has been cropped to the owner's satisfaction, grass wranglers trim edges and blast clippings from sidewalks, driveways, and patios at no extra charge. On mowing day, owners should secure pets, leave gates unlocked to provide easy access, and identify their lawn by spelling out MOW ME on it in fertilizer.
On a fateful day in 1933, at the height of the Great Depression, a hitchhiker arrived at The Howdy Come In––a rest stop owned by Ben and Eva Winter––carrying only his clothes and a suitcase full of cabinet-making tools. The Winters decided to hire him to build a chifforobe for their new baby, Bobby, and were so impressed by his craftsmanship that they decided to go into business with their new friend. Soon the partners were selling new and refurbished furniture out of the Winters’ dairy barn under the name Winter’s Furniture Store, and they eventually moved to a storefront in the city of Emporia, where they could share their high-quality wares with more people and fewer confused cows.
Today, the family business is run by the Winters’ son, Bob, who oversaw its expansion into two showrooms in Topeka and Lawrence and gave it a new moniker––Discovery Furniture. His merchandise buyers select fine furniture from around the world, filling the design floors with trusted name brands such as Broyhill, Aspen, and Flexsteel. As a member of the Furniture First buying group, Winter is able to pass along the savings of buying stock in volume along with a guarantee that he will meet or beat any competitor’s advertised price within 75 miles. Interior designers on staff can help customers determine which pieces, styles, and colors best fit their needs, and most of Discovery’s furniture can be custom ordered in any style, color, or fabric, catering to customers who know what they like and like to match their upholstery to their clothes.
The staff members at The Floor Project aim to incite their clients' creativity. In doing so, they give performance demonstrations and offer design advice throughout their expansive show rooms, where they show off hardwood, carpet, and tile flooring. Whenever possible, they stock the store with environmentally friendly and American-made products, of which clients can take home samples. To make the shopping process fun, they also navigate a mobile toy cart around the store to occupy children.
