Regardless of the season, the experts at J. Mosca Landscaping & Design have plenty of outdoor tasks to keep them busy. As the spring sun starts to shine, landscapers clean up damage from winter storms and yeti mosh pits before seeding lawns and setting up irrigation systems. They also stop by during the dog days of summer to trim the grass and mulch flowerbeds. Once the weather turns cold, the techs shift gears, trading hoes for shovels in order to clear walkways of drifted snow. In addition to seasonal tasks, the experts also know their way around construction; aided by their own fleet of earth-moving M-Series Bobcats, their sure-handed masons can craft walkways, patios, retaining walls, and fireplaces no matter the time of year.
Experienced framers Barry Stahl and Bob Clayton built Big Picture Framing from scratch in 2000, holding meetings around an old card table as construction roared around them. Today, framers at 15 area locations craft custom frames to display artwork, photographs, and record sleeves, and shadow boxes protect three-dimensional items such as ballet slippers, macaroni art, or a swarm of wasps. Patrons can dictate all design choices, choosing from metal and wooden frames in a multitude of colors and styles, or ask for recommendations from one of Big Picture Framing's resident experts. Big Picture Framing also stocks pre-framed art, prints, and posters to spruce up bare-walled homes or a drab doghouse.

At Modern Pest, service professionals customize each treatment to the specific pest, and can even make their applications green or organic.

Shingles have come a long way from their ancient beginnings as adobe and clay slabs held in place by Greek philosophers. Today’s shingles can seal out ice, resist algae, stand up to 130-mile-per-hour winds, and keep homes cooler by deflecting sunrays with specialized reflective granules. Certified Roofing owner Dion Gaines utilizes these advances during a range of roof- and home-repair services. Dion, like the shingles he installs, has come a long way. His father’s remodeling company instilled in him a lifelong love of roofing that survived indoor college life and brought him back to the outdoors. This passion is visible in all aspects of his repair, maintenance, and inspection services. When replacing gutters, Dion offers clients a choice of 17 colors, as well as aluminum and copper. He can underlay shingles so they lay flat against the roof, keeping out rain, ice, cheetahs, or wind that travels as fast as a cheetah. Additionally, he maintains a clean, safe job site during each chimney cleaning, inspection, and roof repair by constantly picking up spare debris.
