Mike Sekulich of Tallmadge Asphalt says that the fall is a good time to perform maintenance on your driveway. Tallmadge Asphalt operates its own asphalt plant, which gives the company tighter quality control of the asphalt mix. Tallmadge Asphalt, which has been in business 65 years, also installs concrete. The concrete calendar, while not set in cement (pun intended), fills up fast. Call for a highly trained expert to come to your home to inspect your proposed project and give you a price for both concrete and asphalt so that you can choose what's best for you. To demystify the process, Mike, who's the president of the company, has made an instructional video, which is available on the Tallmadge Asphalt website. For more information, you can call 330.677.0000. Tallmadge Asphalt was founded in 1947 by Mike's father.

Chris Stranahan, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited in Cuyahoga Falls, says that the hot summer has been tough on hummingbirds because the heat has dried up the flower nectar, which they rely on for their nutrition. You can help them, especially now that they have started their migration south and need good sources of energy. Fill your hummingbird feeders with 1 part regular sugar and four parts water. For more tips about hummingbirds, finches and other backyard birds, contact the experts at Wild Birds Unlimited, which is located at 597 Howe Ave, Cuyahoga Falls.
