St. Louis – Best of List

Compost: St. Louis Composting – http://stlcompost.com/ (Maryland Heights, MO)

This is a great place to get compost, mulch, and soil. Plus they deliver!

Pest/Rodent/Mosquito Removal: PestShield – http://www.pestshield.com/ (Webster Groves, MO)

Another family-owned business that specializes in Mosquito smogging yards and pest and rodent control in the home.

When you find a pest you want it gone immediately. PestShield promises that customer service with prompt and quality pest control expertise is what sets them apart. They also offer a PestShield tube system for new homes. During construction, they would install a network of tubing inside the walls of the home. This would allow them to treat inside the walls where insects live and breed.

Wildlife Removal: All Out Wildlife Control – http://www.alloutwildlifecontrol.com/ (Central St. Louis, MO)

Dave and Laura are both born, raised, schooled, lifelong residents of, and went to college in the St. Louis area, and now call Jefferson County home. They are really good at what they do, which is to get squirrels and raccoons and a variety of other animals out of folks homes and trees. We get asked about this quite a bit and I know several of our customers have used him.

All Out Wildlife Control also comes very highly recommended by others. They have an A+ rating
with the Better Business Bureau and an A rating with Angie’s List. They are also St. Louis area’s only Certified Wildlife Control Professional and Academy Certified Professional which means they know what they are doing and how to remove wildlife safely.

Foundation Repair and Concrete Work: Dannegger Brothers Contracting, Inc – http://danneggerbrothers.com/ (Maryland Heights, MO)

We get asked this often because sometimes tree root systems can tear up the foundation of a home, sidewalk, or driveway.

What really causes foundation or sidewalk damage is changes to the soil. A drought would cause the soil to shrink as well as the tree roots to push through areas to look for more water. A lot of rain would do the opposite and cause some soil to swell and maybe even tree roots as well. These changes are what causes concrete to shift and crack. These shifts can cause problems in your foundation that you’d want the knowledge and experience in waterproofing and foundation repair that Dannegger Brothers Contracting can perform for commercial and residential projects.

Leaf Removal: Horstmann Brothers – http://www.horstmannbrothers.com/about-us/ (St. Louis, MO)

These guys are very helpful also family and locally owned like us.

Horstmann Brothers employs a staff of horticultural experts to aid clients with the creation of unique projects and complete full-service landscape maintenance services. They have expanded their services to include irrigation, landscape lighting, drainage, snow removal, hardscape installation and annual flower planting programs.

Gutter Cleaning: Scott-Lee Guttering – http://www.scottleeguttering.com/st-louis-gutters

They have been owned by the same folks for 35 years and are local to St. Louis and St. Charles.

Those beautiful large oak and maple trees, just to name a few, that are all over the St. Louis area tree-lined streets do shed those leaves every fall. A lot of debris and can make it’s way into your gutter causing overflow or blockages. Overflows can harm the roof, foundation, lawn or landscaping. A regular clean out is highly recommended. Scott-Lee Guttering can do small clean out jobs, full replacement jobs or things like adding gutter shields.
