Clarification on some household terms that are commonly confused
Daisy VS. Chamomile
-The daisy is a perennial with white petals and a yellow center. Shasta daisies, which are most common in the U.S., have 4-inch-wide blooms that flower from early summer up until the fall.
-The Chamomile blooms annually from June to August. They have 1-inch-diameter flowers with bulbous yellow centers and white petals. It flowers can be dried to be used for herbal tea.
Shovel VS. Spade
-A shovel is a garden tool used to dig large holes, like for planting trees and shrubs. It has a rounded end that comes to a point which helps break into harder soil.
-A spade is similar, but is more narrow and has a flat sharp end instead of a point. The shape makes it easier for transplanting plants, dividing perennials and edging beds.
Bumblebee VS. Honeybee
-A bumblebee is a winged insect with a rounded, furry body. They are very active pollinators but only produce enough honey for themselves. They can sting multiple times if provoked.
-A honeybee is a winged insect with a slender, slightly fuzzy body. They are large producers of honey and they can only sting once in their lives before dying shortly after.
*Both are extremely important insects. Without them we could be in serious trouble when it comes to the production of our fruits and vegetables.
Peat Moss Vs. Perlite
-Peat moss is created when sphagnum moss decays. It’s fluffy and fibrous, so its often added to potting mixes to make them less dense.-Perlite is a lightweight porous rock formed in volcanoes that looks like bits of Styrofoam. It is mixed into potting soil to increase airflow so roots get more oxygen and water.

They did an add on and deck for us. We are so happy with the room and deck. They are very professional and did an outstanding job. I would have them back for any additional projects that we do.

We had Xpand build our home in 2013-2014. Jess was very easy to work with, listened to our wants and offered ideas, responded promptly when we had concerns and provides quality workmanship! His crews were always respectful, and worked hard to get things done without cutting corners, which was very important to us. He was also willing to allow us to do some of the work ourselves! Thank you for our beautiful home Xpand!

It was such a pleasure to use Xpand Inc on our recent kitchen remodel. The workers involved showed commitment, craftsmanship, passion and courtesy. Xpand Inc personnel kept us informed each step of the way and were always readily available for questions and advice. We now have our dream kitchen that is so inviting and we are proud to use as a gathering space for friends and family. We highly recommend Xpand Inc company to work with.

We bought a model home of Jess’ in Jordan last April and are just thrilled with it. We were so impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the model home that we contracted with Xpand to finish the basement, add a patio and a deck with gazebo that is the envy of the street!!!

We had a great experience with Xpand! They took the time to come and sit down to help us design our deck and went thru all our options for decking materials. It was built in a timely manner and the end product was just what we wanted!

They did an addition above my garage. Jesus had a better layout than we did. They were done on a timely manner. They did an amazing job on the work. When it was done it looked better than we thought it would. The only issue was an uneven floor in the extended entry way. They were back out in a couple days to fix the problem. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Very incredible company all around.

Xpand Inc did a wonderful job on both the design, and building of, the deck on my house. They were professional, courteous, and very friendly. The project was scheduled and completed on time, and the craftsmanship was top notch! I would definitely recommend, and use, Xpand Inc for any construction needs again, without hesitation! Thanks for the great addition to my home!

We had a great experience with their team. They were extremely accommodating during the entire process. They continue to check in with us years later to ensure we are still happy. I have and will recommend them.
