J & S Lock and Lawn
This rating is for one particular technician, that we've had to call for a lockout once 5 yrs ago and again today, a Sunday. Both times he was prompt, curteous, respectful, and knowledgeable on not damaging our lock. He got us into our house and even cleaned our lock of the oil and graphite left from the previous business (that couldn't get it open) so that it wouldn't degrade our lock over time. We recommend this young gentleman 100%- pretty sure his name is Justin. J&S on the whole could work on their brick and mortar atmosphere though. It smells strongly of smoke, and women will not feel comfortable there being addressed as "hun" and "sweety." I feel confident J&S could work on these issues, to make their business truly topnotch.

These folks have always done a good job for me. I have gone there a number of time to have keys made. More than once, they were several times cheaper than the dealer. They haven't been able to help me every time, but they always tried their best.

Best prices in town! 10% off store wide sale. If you need hydroponics equipment go there it's in Winslow plaza by cloverleaf south. Seriously go check it out now. Family owned and operated. They are the best to ever do it.

Tips & Advices
Outdoor watering cans often are specifically from materials that are more resistant to weather variables--i.e., with a protective coating that prevents moisture corrosion, or prevents the handle from getting extremely hot in direct sunlight. Indoor watering cans are usually made of lightweight plastic, although they can be made from all sorts of other material, from stainless steel to porcelain. They often fill a more ornamental function, while the outdoor watering cans are for ongoing hard work.
A trowel is much smaller than a spade--it has a short handle and is meant to be used at knee-height or even closer range to the plants and soil. A spade is a type of shovel with a long handle and a sharp metal blade--usually much flatter than a normal shovel.
A pick mattock has at its head an adze and a pick, for breaking up hard-packed soil and debris. The cutter mattock has an axe blade on one side of the head and an adze on the other. It’ s better for digging up and cutting through roots.
The best type of shovel for gardening is a garden spade, ideally used in conjunction with a hand trowel.
The essential supplies for gardening are mostly basic, inexpensive non-motor tools. Essential tools consist of a sturdy pair of scissors, a trowel, a pair of pruning shears, at least one shovel, and a hand fork or a hoe. Also, a gardener must have a functioning hose—hopefully one with an adjustable sprayer nozzle. There are also kneeling pads for gardeners, which can help prevent knee and back strain If you are going to compost, you’ll need a compost bin. And to protect all your items from rain, make sure you have some sort of shed or enclosure. Finally, you should have a pair or two of heavy-duty gardening gloves.
