Source D’Inspiration

Bonjour, mon amis! It has been long time since I talk to you, but still I must make this short.

Inspiration strikes me at odd times and with no measurable pattern in frequency. I can go years with almost nothing going through head, sitting staring at walls, no registry of world around me. Like snake after big meal – stare into my eyes and see nothing.

At other times, I am struck with divinely inspired madness – a Dionysian frenzy causing me to CHIMP and accomplish whatever goal or pursue whatever idea has caught my attention so. This has led to my great and impressive wealth – but it has also cursed me with an inability to pursue normal relationships and has landed me in hot water with both sides of law many times.

The last few months I have been inspired once again to travel – this time to lands of the Eurasian steppe, where I can hear the call of many horses; their hooves pounding against the parched earth. I know not where they ride, but I must join them.

Before that, the inspiration came for something somewhat more mundane – remodeling my kitchen. I decided that I would once again be calling friends from Inspired Remodels, as I always do for the sake of irony.

Then again, they have been hard at work during the last few years, gaining even more incredible testimonials than the last time I checked. Here’s a few:

“After spending time looking for a contractor to renovate our master bathroom, laundry and power bath, we settled on Inspired Remodels and I’m so glad we did! From start to finish every single person that worked in our home was professional, considerate and communicated with us throughout the process. I am rather “particular” about things being just right and they went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. Joe and Collin were very patient with me during the selection process and Jason was responsive and made me feel at ease with any questions I had along the way. The tradesmen were all outstanding but I need to give a special shoutout to Haime and Rudy, Mark and Ulysses, for their attention to detail and the long hours they put into making our home beautiful.  Thank you, thank you! I highly recommend using IR if you have high expectations – they will be met!” – Lisa G., Yelp Review

Read Mindy A.‘s review of Inspired Remodels on Yelp

“Here’s my story. We hired IR to remodel our master bathroom and handle a few other small things around the house, mostly electrical and paint. I’m an HVAC contractor and perfectly capable of hiring and handling my own sub-contractors for this project but after doing that for the downstairs remodel, I decided I’d rather have a general do all of this for upstairs. That’s when I found IR on Yelp. I found many companies highly rated but it proved to be difficult just to get someone on the phone let alone schedule an estimate. Anyways, IR was a clear choice for me to hire and I’m glad I did.

Now not everything went perfect but you can’t expect a project like this to be that way. I wish some things had gone a bit smoother but I’ll focus on the positives here as they far outweigh any negatives. Jason, the foreman was incredible with keeping me up to date and still to this day is just a text, email or phone call away if anything comes up. Great service during and after the project. It’s after the project you tend to get burned but not with these guys. I trust them 100% and will hire again. I’ve already used one of their subs for a project with my company.” (Chris P., Yelp Review)

Over the years, they have performed a great number of highly impressive feats, catering to my admittedly capricious and oftentimes ridiculous requests and desires. Regardless, I have never heard one negative thing about them from another of their customers, so their work on normal jobs must be top notch.

If you are like me and have been inspired to get your home remodeled, do yourself a favor and call my friends at Inspired Remodels. Now, I must prepare myself for the trials ahead.

Protecting The Best Of US

Protecting The Best Of US

When I was small boy growing up in southern France, I did not get along with many of the other children. Even from young age, I knew myself to be better than them, above their petty cruelties and concerns.

I got in many fights with the other boys (and occasionally the girls!), their meaty peasant fists were all too familiar, as was the taste of blood in my mouth. The companions I kept were limited to the small cadre of boys who came from similar backgrounds in both familial origin and psychological orientation; them, and the stray dogs that wandered the alleys of the seaside town.

I remember being approached by pooch after one particularly vicious beating from large boy who had been offended by my calling him and his mother beasts of burden. The doggy licked my injured face, and I held him, tail wagging, while anguished tears ran down my face, cursing my small stature and physical weakness and vowing revenge.

This doggy, whom I never named, became my constant companion for next two years. He drove off many an older bully, lazed about in the courtyard as I read during hot summer months, ran with me as I caroused through streets of town.

The dogs of the town were all my friends, but he and I shared a special bond. One day, however, upon leaving my villa, I notice he had not come to greet me as he would any other day.

Knowing something was amiss, I search the town for hours, checking all of his favorite spots to sleep and pick through garbage. At last I came upon him, head in upturned trash can, unmoving but breathing.

I pulled him out, tears once again streaming down my face as I held him close. His tail wagged weakly, he still licked my face, but I knew from his coughing and wheezing that he did not have long. I sat with him until he passed, not much longer after that.

The other stray dogs in town came and went, pausing to sniff and lick his body as if paying their respects. I sat there with him, until the shopkeeper next door noticed me and called for my caretaker to come take me away. We buried him in the courtyard.

My caretaker had some experience caring for horses, and once I had told him what happened, he explained to me that the dog’s heart was old and weak, and had finally given out. He told me that he had noticed the dog coughing strangely before, but had not given much thought to it besides that.

It took me many years before I could once again befriend a dog to that level again. I vowed to never be as careless of a friend’s health as to ignore the obvious signs of trouble, like my caretaker had.

To these ends, if you are concerned for your animal friend’s heart health, do whatever you can to ensure they get the proper care and screenings they need. Local companies such as Cardiac Vet provide animal diagnostics and screenings, so be sure to get in contact with her or your vet to give pet long and healthy life.

I still get tears in eyes from telling this story. I must now drink wine.

Synthetic Lawns May Increase Your Home’s Market Value

Synthetic Lawns May Increase Your Home’s Market Value

As readers of my blog know, I have had synthetic grass installed. I have recently been considering making more investments in real estate, and given my positive experiences, I would highly recommend artificial grass installation for property owners.

Real estate investors are always looking for the best opportunities to buy and sell properties for a rewarding profit. The price of a home usually depends upon the forces of supply and demand at a particular location. There are many factors that can influence the overall value of your home. 

Location

The location of the property plays the most essential role in determining its market value. Homes that are located in close vicinity to shops, schools, public transportation, and restaurants are likely to receive higher price valuations. On the other side, properties located in areas with higher crime rates and unemployment rates are likely to have low worth. 

Size and features

The size and features of the home will also influence the overall worth. The four bedroom home could have a higher price tag as compared to the two bedroom house, even if they are located in the same area. In addition, the availability of outdoor entertaining areas, swimming pools, garages and bathrooms can be a considerable factor in the property valuation.

Renovation potential

Investors and homebuyers are always interested in making updates to the property to increase the valuation. If your property has enough renovation potential such as the ability to add an extra room or exterior modifications, the property may receive more competitive offers. The more renovation potential, the higher the property is likely to be valued.

Consider installing a synthetic lawn to boost your property’s value

Those who are looking to boost the overall value of their property are advised to consider the installation of synthetic lawns. Professionals in the real estate industry believe that a well-maintained lawn significantly enhances the appeal of the property.

Synthetic lawns are low  maintenance

The greatest benefit of synthetic lawns is that they are easier to maintain in the long run. Once you have installed these beautiful artificial lawns, they create the perfect space for family outdoor activities and relaxation. These lawns require only minimal efforts for maintenance and management. Small irrigation channels are added during the installation process so that water can be drained away automatically to prevent pooling. 

Read Dennis Z.‘s review of NoMow Turf on Yelp

Artificial turf does not require harsh fertilizers

As these lawns do not grow or die, there is no need to use fertilizers like normal grass lawns. Once you have installed this turf, it will remain green, lush, and toxin-free—even in the long run. Harsh fertilizers may be detrimental to the local environment while posing a serious threat to children and pets at home. But these synthetic lawns make fertilizers and other harsh chemicals unnecessary.

Synthetic grass is highly cost-effective

Another amazing benefit of synthetic lawns is that they offer long-lasting value with minimal installation costs. As there is no need to invest in the maintenance of these turfs, you have to manage the upfront cost only. Once installed, these lawns can enhance the overall appeal of your property by a considerable level. 

There are so many benefits to installing synthetic lawns for your home. It is a highly effective way to enhance the overall value of your property. You can give NoMow Turf, Inc. – Synthetic Lawns & Putting Greens a call today to book an appointment today.

The Curse

The Curse

It is 4:30 in the morning, with first lightening of sky off in the east, behind mountains. I sit here, sipping fourth coffee since midnight, cigarette in hand, listening to Rachmaninoff Prelude in C Sharp Minor, staring at wall, oftentimes slipping into mindless stupor.

I am cursed. Many times along my many travels, I believe I have run into powerful and vindictive WITCH, many of whom I have angered after tumultuous TRYST.

I take drag on cigarette, but as I breathe in I can once again hear it – the scurrying, the scratching of tiny legs walking within walls, of tiny mandibles chewing up structure of house. Chewing until it all comes crashing down on my head, my body only being discovered days later in rubble having choked to death on shoddy American fiberglass insulation.

I am being hounded by witch’s curse, is only explanation. Curse of pestilence, of beasts following me and burrowing into house and enterprise. Yes, once again my property has become infested, but this time it is no office space – it is my home. I have not slept in many days.

I think back now, on the many women, their faces invade thoughts unbidden, the snakelike and reptilian among them revealing themselves now to be nefarious and capable of black magic. The walls…I have blown holes in many of them with firearms, but through them I can see the pests, and they laugh at me.

My assistants have tried to come many times to break me from my stupor, to tell me termite inspectors are on the way…but I know they are in on it. They cannot fool me with their promises of a quick tenting…though the thought of eliminating more of these beasts pleases me greatly.

The name they mentioned…Grand Oaks Termite Control…in my more lucid moments I looked them up. They come highly recommended, as their Yelp reviews can attest;

I highly recommended Grand Oaks Termite Control.  I had an unusual situation where there were many areas of my wood paneling and roof that were affected by termites and wood rot. I have a decorative tree growing through the front part of my home which makes it very difficult to treat without damaging the tree. When Jason came for the preliminary inspection, he knew exactly how to effectively treat my home without harming my favorite tree. His estimate was very reasonable and his communication was top notch. He kept me appraised of all the curve balls and never stuck me with any unexpected cost. I was very impressed with the workmanship of his teammate Gary who took care of all the woodwork, a true craftsman.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Grand Oaks without any hesitation.

John B., Yelp Review

I was impressed with Grand Oaks Termite Control throughout the entire process of working with them.  I requested a quote and asked a question through yelp and they immediately answered.  I was able to schedule a free inspection shortly after.  When Justin and Gary came to inspect my house, they were kind and courteous.  I was ready to provide them shoe coverings and lay out an old sheet  over my newly cleaned carpet, but they already had all that covered.  They gave an honest and thorough inspection and answered any questions we had.  They ended up treating our home for subterranean termites, and also did some localized treatments and wood repair.  They extremely take pride in their work and did not rush at any moment of the process.  What you get with this company is quality of work and great customer service.  I would 100% use this company again in the future and recommend to anyone who needs termite work done.

Janine D., Yelp Review

If they can destroy this most recent manifestation of the curse, I may be temporarily reprieved. Though, I know, the pestilence will return…to truly be rid of this curse, I must find the one who set it upon me…I must prepare.

If you are looking for termite treatment for your home, give Grand Oaks Termite Control a call. They may be able to help you break free of your own curse of pestilence:

Termites At Home

Termites At Home

There are two types of people. Those who want to live in an apartment and those who like living in a house. So, which option is better? There is no correct answer to this. The decision may be very complicated and depends on different factors, or it may be merely a matter of personal preference. One should assess each option to figure out which of those two choices is the best. 

I mention this today as my greatest dilemma when I first came to the U.S. was choosing between an apartment or house.

Life in an Apartment

The main distinction of an apartment is that they are smaller than houses. However, that should not be a deal-breaker. You can find ways to save floor space through wall-mounted furniture. Or, you can make rooms appear visually larger by using the right materials and colors.

Living in an apartment means many surrounding neighbors, and they may not all be welcoming. One may have difficulty finding quiet and peace of mind in an apartment. The best thing you can do is create a positive relationship with the neighbors from the beginning. 

As far as security and maintenance, apartments appear to be the right choice. Several apartment buildings have security guards, and most of them have secure front doors that can be opened exclusively with a card or code. It is also less likely for an intruder to enter or go unnoticed when there are lots of neighbors. Houses typically have garages or parking spaces, whereas finding parking in a jammed apartment complex can often prove to be impossible.

Every apartment building must be treated according to city laws to ensure that residents do not experience any concerns with pests such as termites

Life in a House

Houses are usually for those who live with other people, such as family members. If you have a large family or are looking to start a large family, you may have no other choice. Entertaining loved ones and relatives are easier when you have enough space. 

You will have more privacy and freedom when living in a house: no neighbors to trouble; no inquisitive eyes snooping from the building across the road. 

However, a large space requires more maintenance. You can imagine how simple it is to clean a small apartment in contrast to a large house. The owner of a house has more floors to vacuum, more rooms to clean, and gardening and exteriors to worry about.

While the damage can range from trivial to significant structural damage, a termite infestation can go unseen for many years. That is why Garden Grove termite inspections are essential. Termites cause billions of dollars worth of damage in the United States every year, by munching on the wood structure of the house.

If you are considering buying a house, make sure the property is free from any termites. Each year after ownership, it is crucial to have a careful assessment to take action against termite infestation. You can give Natural Science Exterminating a call today for a termite inspection or extermination.

The Heart That Truly Matters

The Heart That Truly Matters

I don’t know what I would do without my dog, who had accompanied me during the hardest transition of my life: moving from my home country France to the United States, where I began my new life as a divorcee. I thought I would write about my appreciation for animals and how they can support us through tough transitions.

Having a pet at home may seem like hard work. The responsibility to care for an animal in addition to the several responsibilities in your life requires a serious commitment in terms of time and money. This can be stressful, but if we consider the perks of owning a pet, you will find that all that effort to pay off in the end. 

Pets provide us a type of positive energy that you cannot find anywhere else. Dogs are the best companions for a human being; they share a strong emotional bond with us.

If you are a frequent traveler, you can take your furry friend with you on adventure journeys.

Dogs support your mental health

No matter what kind of situation you come up against in life, your dog will always stay beside you. Even during a global crisis pandemic, pets have been a great source of emotional support for individuals. A study conducted on college-going women revealed that people who own pets had considerably lower loneliness scores on the UCLA Loneliness Scale; “having a pet can help to diminish feelings of loneliness, particularly for women living alone, and compensate for the absence of human companionship.” Emotional Support Animals (ESA) are believed to be helpful for the overall health and well-being of people suffering from serious mental health conditions such as major depression, panic disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorders. 

Dogs enhance your physical health

It is scientifically proven that people who have dogs are likely to enjoy better physical health and more positive energy. Since dogs are high-energy creatures that frequently require a walk outdoors; the dog owners benefit from having a reason to get outside, walk on a regular basis, and stay committed to that in the long run.

Without any doubt, dogs can enhance the overall quality of life. At the same time, owners must take care of the health of their dogs. Owners are advised to visit an experienced veterinary consultant from time to time to maintain their dog’s complete health and well-being. Dogs may suffer from health problems such as skin issues, ear infections, urinary tract infections, vomiting, diarrhea, parasites, dental disease, obesity, arthritis, and toxicity.

Dogs provide great social support

Along with several mental and physical health benefits, pet dogs are also known for providing great social support to their owners. Pets show unconditional love towards their owners and other family members. If you show the same level of compassion and empathy towards your pet, you are likely to enjoy a happier life. They are also likely to be friendly towards your neighbors, friends, family, and other people in your life.

I highly recommend adopting a furry friend. You never know how much joy they will bring to your life. Becoming a dog owner was the best decision of my life.

Marriage Advice

Marriage Advice

Recently, a friend asked me when it is right time to get married in relationship. I ask him if he wanted to hear true answer, or cute answer. “Truth, please,” he said to me in infuriating American accent.

True answer was: do not get married. Love exist regardless of state involvement, and all state does is add extra pressure to squash love that might make it through challenging times. I’ve seen it many times: state incentivise divorce for some parties rather than punish couples who are too weak to follow through on commitments.

For many in America, they are too foolish to see the wisdom in such advice. They marry on whim and get divorced just as capriciously. For those of you who find yourselves on same path as fool, two things: 

1. Take deep look at self and wonder, ‘why,’ and 

2. Look into mediation rather than divorce court, it will twist soul and gonads somewhat less than regular court route. If you live in the southern California area, look into McNamee Mediations, who I have heard mentioned many times by business associates and employees.

Quick look through testimonials provides proof of quality:

As a financial planner, I see my clients go through a number of changes in their lives and sometimes it includes a separation/divorce. Mediation is the far better option when dissolving a marriage as it puts a lot less strain not only on the finances but also the emotions of everyone involved. This is where Colleen McNamee stands out. As an attorney-mediator, she is extremely knowledgeable in her field, has two decades of experience, but also truly cares about her clients. Something that cannot be taught in law school is the gift of empathy and caring for others, which translates into achieving fair and equitable results for couples. Thanks to her very strong skill set and the services she’s able to offer, she remains a neutral counsel to both parties throughout the process, and the Agreements she drafts are far superior to any other divorce mediator I have seen! My clients have come out feeling like they were treated fairly, received their equitable shares, and can now move forward with their lives onto their next chapters.

Read Andrea P.‘s review of McNamee Mediations on Yelp

I have known Colleen McNamee for over two years and I love how she handles people who are having marriage problems. She is always interested in what is best for everyone involved, especially for any children. Sometimes, it’s a “marriage contract” that she draws up to help people stay together amicably instead of getting a divorce. If divorce is the only option, then unlike a contentious court divorce with attorneys pitting spouses against each other in public and draining the couple’s bank accounts, Colleen can get couples working together for the best solution, at far lower cost, and it’s a private matter. I highly recommend her services, and so do people who have gotten divorces through her because they often talk about how she made it so much less stressful than a courtroom divorce.

Gregg Hill – Google Review

If marriage is too hard for your piggish American brain, look into McNamee Mediations. They’ll do their best to leave soul unsundered.

Refreshed

Refreshed

Bonjoir, mon amis. You may have noticed that I have not been writing as much as is usual for one such as me. The reason, I’m afraid, is that I have succumb to typical frenchman’s disease – severe depression and ennui.

What is the cause of this lack of energy? Well…this year is the reason. For one who desires to move constantly, who cannot be tied down to one location, this year has been especially hard. I have gotten into many physical altercations with gorilla goons posing as border enforcement, some of which have ended in brief incarceration.

So what do I do instead of moving around globe, visiting sites of ancient power and feeding off their energies? I mope. I mope and trounce around my southern California estate, calling associates and employees and berating them for one thing or another. Even my abuse has become listless, as my employees frequently ask, “is that it, sir? Is everything OK?” at the end of my usual tirades.

So great is their concern for me that they have come skulking up to my estate, leaving offerings of food, sweets, alcohol, anything they can think of to raise my spirits. Peasants that they are, they do not understand what a naturally aristocratic mind needs to become once again engaged with the world around him – NOVELTY.

I NEED to see, taste, and experience novelty like a lesser man needs air, shelter, and water. I must climb new mountains to see sun in different light. No paltry gift left on stoop will ever bring LIFE into me, not in the way visiting ruins in middle of jungle after days trekking.

Recently, I decide to visit one of my many enterprises here in United States to see if there was some business-related problem that could distract me from my doldrum existence wandering room to room in house. What I saw there revolted me in way I could not describe.

Many months had passed since last person entered office, turning out lights in apt metaphor for the world in this forsaken year. Thick layers of dust coated every surface, but the mess was not the issue.

The furniture, it disgusted me. Entering premises after months of disuse allowed me to see the décor of office in new and unpleasant way. The furnishings of office were as tired and energy deprived as I was, and I could not believe I had subjected even brutish American employees to such sapping accoutrements.

I began throwing desks, chairs, cubicle walls into parking lot. Soon, I had pile that took up most of lot, the rest quickly filling with distressed employees, begging me not to do anything rash. One of them called fire department, expecting me to set the whole of it alight.

Calling them the fools that they were, I simply donated the lot of it. A man with ties to ancient past knows not to pollute nature with the toxic fumes that modern furniture would no doubt spew upon burning. Plus, I know value of pre-used furniture.

To replace offending fixtures, I called old friends at Creative Office Designs up in Los Angeles. Despite the hour-long drive, I trust no one else in this country to provide me with office furniture. I will be touring their show rooms in the near future, and I have assured them that my eye is very discerning.

If you, like me, need new office furniture, be sure to give them call. They deserve the business, and your loyalty.

Return Of The Six-Legged Menace

Return Of The Six-Legged Menace

Bonjour mon amis and welcome back to my great exhortation to Dionysus, god of wine, fertility, and madness. I am not supposed to tell you this, but I have just returned from trip to Greece and Ionia, where followers of Dionysian Mysteries still reside, and spirit of old Greek gods may still be accessed if you know where to look…

But my head, it is still fogged by the revelries and wine, so I speak too much and too plainly. The mysteries may only be revealed to those who partake in the ritualistic madness that the god is associated with, so maybe it is not so good an idea to spread these talks.

Upon returning, it was revealed that, once again my commercial enterprises have been beset by a plague of the infuriating six legged BEASTS that seem to crawl under every inch of this besotted land! It is as if they await my departure before nesting in my property, as the devils know that my sharp eyes would catch them even in dead of night.

The madness of the festivities could never match the red hot FURY that overcame me at learning of this most recent affront. I smashed my desk with my bare hands as the assistants fled for safety. They know that my passion cannot be contained, and so they retreat to the designated safe room and listen to my animalistic howling and the sounds my great and powerful CHIMPING OUT.

Once calmed and coaxed out of freshly destroyed office with fine Turkish coffee and promises of eternal fealty, I began process of rebuilding. I have separate storage space for replacement furnishings for those destroyed during moments of Dionysian-inspired passion, but the termite problem would require outside help.

For this I once again turned to my great friends at Grand Oaks Termite Control, who I have called many times since my move to western coast. There was a time where they did not return my phone calls after seeing one such fit of godly rage, but my fine subordinates were able to sooth their scarred employees as well. There is reason I continue to bear my employees’ normally insufferable American natures – I only hire the best of their kind.

After a brief inspection, they assured me that the infestation was light and could be easily taken care of without need to change my normal operations. This news overjoyed me – the recent trip had devastated not just my body and soul, but my finances as well.

Within the week, my friends had cleared out the menace and the energy of the office immediately became once again uplifting, the clouds over my head evaporated, letting the sun shine on me and produce vitality and strengthen muscles. My employees visibly relaxed, and the alert status posted at front door was turned down once again to normal level of merely ‘elevated’ rather than ‘imminent’.

If you are like me and are in desperate need of termite infestation control in Pasadena and surrounding areas, give my friends at Grand Oaks a call. Do not mention my name.

The Beauty Of France In My Own Front Yard

The Beauty Of France In My Own Front Yard

I left my home in France 3 years ago to move to the United States for work reasons. Ever since I left, I have not stopped longing for my old French life. The culture, food, and history—how could I not miss it all? On any given day, I could sit outside or at home with my friends or visit one of the country’s numerous outdoor attractions: France’s most symbolic monument, the Eiffel Tower (which I climbed to catch an exhilarating view of the city); the Louvre Museum, which holds some of the world’s greatest artworks like Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci and Wedding Feast at Cana by Veronese; or the royal residence designated as a UNESCO world heritage site, the Palace of Versailles. 

The beauty of France is so spectacular that it seeps into everything, even the appearances of the homes. Home gardens and lawn designs are quite beautiful. A memory of my visit to the royal gardens of Louis XV at Trianon I convinced me to start thinking of installing my own artificial grass. Historically, well-kept lawns were a symbol of affluence among the elites of French society, so having one was not simply a matter of home improvement, but of tapping into a long and rich history.

Photo of Eiffel Tower

I decided to upgrade my lawn by installing artificial turf.

I highly recommend hiring a professional service to install your artificial lawn. Grass installation requires specific equipment and expertise to achieve a level and durable lawn. The contractor will start by digging to remove the grass from your existing lawn. Then, they will use a professional turf cutter to prepare the site for the next stage. Installing a commercial grade weed membrane will prevent weeds from growing through the lawn. Some companies install compact stone, as it provides a solid base for the new lawn and adequate drainage as well. Granulated granite is leveled and compacted, allowing for a more stable foundation, and thus a longer-lasting lawn. 

The most important part is the laying of the green grass. It is cut to size, each tile laid closely and joined tightly. This creates seamless coverage. An infill may also be used when laying the grass so that the pattern of the lawn looks real. This is followed by motorized brushing of the infill so the grass can stand upright and look like real grass. Finally, the newly installed artificial grass is washed to remove any site debris, and a final quality check is conducted.

I could not be happier with my new lawn. If it can’t be France, at least I can have my own beautiful garden. NoMow Turf is a professional artificial grass installation company that has saved me so much time and energy. When I look out onto my lawn every morning, I feel like the royal highness of my own Palace of Versailles. If you are interested in transforming yours, you can give NoMow Turf a call today.
