- The staff are friendly and they offer a wide variety of plants and trees for both indoors and out! They even have a kitty that roams the greenhouses too!
- A wide selection of every kind of plant you can think of. The Watson's team also hosts seasonal events, so take your family between Halloween and Christmas for fun free activities.
- While I love the selection of plants carried at this nursery, their seasonal decor is what really sells this place for me. They host the most charming holiday events and have even had live reindeer during years past. If you're looking for something fun to do this holiday season, plan a girl's night to Watson's.
- Locally sourced fruits, vegetables and other goodies. They have specials certain days of the week that different food trucks visit their lot. Sundays the Fisher Scone truck is there, and Wednesdays The Frying Dutchman visits.
- I discovered Sterino's several years back when they first opened during October. Every year, they have fantastic seasonal deals on pumpkins, making pumpkin carving even more affordable and fun. I stop by almost weekly to make sure I have a wide variety of fresh produce.
- We had a massive ant problem a few years ago. Every summer they would come out in the thousands in our front yard, and eventually find ways into our house. We hired Western and have never seen them since. They come by every other month.

- Western Exterminator has reasonable prices and easy to work with.
- The crawl space in my new house was absolutely disgusting. Dead rats, insulation falling down, just gross. I saw the recommendation for Attic Project from one of my friends on Fresh Chalk and decided to give them a call. It was easy to schedule the first consultation. They came out, took pictures, and gave me an estimate. Not the cheapest, but it was necessary and they were very professional. We scheduled the work for a day I wasn't home (crawl space access from outside). They took care of everything! Cleaned up the old stuff, sanitized, rodent proofed (with 5 year warranty) and send me the pictures when they were done. Awesome work, professional company, highly recommend.
- I just recently used them to insulate and do rat barrier prevention. They did a great job and are reliable.
- I recommend this company to all of our move out cleaning customers. They do GORGEOUS work! And they're green. And they're ethical! Anthony, the owner, is awesome. He donates carpet cleanings to good causes (youth homes, etc.) and so cares about his customers. They have a great odor removal service for homes that've had pet accidents. And on my furnished rental with some unexpected, and quite significant, staining on white chairs, they got all of the stains out and it looks brand new. They're reasonable, their cleaning disinfects without harsh chemicals, and I can't say enough about their customer service.
- Family owned and open Tuesday - Saturday, they can solve all your meat problems. Fresh, smoked, cured, or all of the above! I love getting their North Country Sausage to make Red Beans and Rice. 10/10!
- I go here every week to pick up my groceries. They offer amazing products, similar to expensive name brand items, but in THEIR brand for less! Doesn't hurt to save a little, right?
- Trader Joe's is my go-to grocery store for all kinds of things - fresh produce, frozen food items, wines, and more. I was recently going to a party and one of their employees was able to help me assemble a beautiful cheese and cracker board. When it comes to treats, their dark chocolate peanut butter cups are one of my favorites.
We have a 1943 house and NONE of the doors close properly :( We have got a few quotes that seem way high. Hoping for a new front door with a storm ...

I don't have a recommendation per se, but just had a French and double entry door install done (or still waiting to be done) by Home Depot and I would recommend NOT using them. Terrible mfg. partners and installation vendors. Just a PSA for the community.
During hard rains water pools up in front of our garage. There's a drainage pipe that goes to the back of the house, but water just pools up there....

Hey Ryan, I had much the same problem with our home when I first moved in. In fact, I probably have the exact same garage picture somewhere. What I would say about the garage drain is that these often get built without the appropriate slope to drive the water into a drain - and those drains almost always need to be cleaned even with a debris screen every year. For your gate area, someone needs to dig a trench, put in a pipe -at the right angle and either drain somewhere where it will naturally go to run off or into the sewer. I rented a ditch digger, dug a trench, bought PVC pipe that I drilled holes into (that was fun) and covered those with screens that I glued on and then covered with very lightweight landscape paper to reduce debris. I can say its a lot easier to do when its not raining. If you want to hire, look up drainage contractors.
Try Wu Construction, they specialize in drainage and foundation work.
I'm looking for a landscape contractor (landscape architect or designer) that is RainWise certified with the city to install a rain garden in my ya...

@Marston Could you help educate the newbies here? What does it mean to "tie in" more of your roof? How does the city pay for it?
Rainwise is a city sponsored program. They contract with lots of companies who will come out and measure the size of each roof section and estimate how much water will go from your roof to the downspouts that you tie into the cisterns. I have 3 - 650 gallon. If the size, pitch of your roof ties into rain gutters they will determine how many gallons of water you can save. If it meets some minimum threshold, city pays for pretty much everything. You have to sign docs that you won’t disengage. We had to tie more roof into ours to qualify. City didn’t pay for that bit. So subcontractor addd some gutters to tie out stand alone garage to the house.
Wait, is this a thing? Marston, take a pic and try our new photo feature! I want to see your rain garden. This might be just the project to brighten up the covid fall.
