Drawing on more than three decades of combined experience, Ambassador Window Cleaning & Maintenance’s technicians absolve commercial and residential buildings of gutter clogs, window smudges, and mildew invasions. The professional cleaning crew mounts ladders, hydraulic lifts, and seesaws to pluck leaves and dirt from rooftops and spruce up sluices with gutter guards. Torrents of high-pressure water buff mildew and grime from driveways, offices, and homes encased in stucco, brick, vinyl, and wood siding. Strong hands guide squeegees across windows, wiping away smudges left behind by fingerprints or catapulted pies. The company’s dedication to fastidious care extends to their customers as well as to the environment, as technicians wear shoe covers to protect indoor carpets and deploy an arsenal of eco-friendly, biodegradable soaps.

After purchasing Carlmont Nursery in 1962 with his personal inventory of more than 8,000 plants as collateral, owner Bob Tyler tripled the facility's physical size and has since established the nursery as one of the Bay Area’s premier sources for japanese maple and bamboo. Fast-forward to the present and Tyler's Carlmont Nursery has become a peaceful oasis filled with an extensive selection of flora, gardening supplies, and decorative items, crisscrossed by gravel paths that meander past a waterfall and along a winding creek. Customers benefit from garden consultations and design services, and the nursery’s skilled technicians can install plants, lighting, and hardscapes to enhance the beauty of home gardens. Nursery emissaries can also put in water features to imitate babbling brooks or gargling humans.
A day at the spa is designed to be relaxing, and yet the hassle of getting to the salon can be just the opposite. That?s why Judy Chen, the owner and aesthetician of Luminous Spa Studio, designed her services to be undertaken anywhere?whether at her welcoming salon or, thanks to her mobile service menu, at the place of her client?s choosing. Wherever clients decide, she flaunts her skincare skills with facials that use the power of enzymes and anti-aging ingredients to keep faces looking as fresh as the day their parents first removed their protective wrapping. She uses products from brands such as Jan Marini, Dermalogica, Clarisonic, and Perricone MD, and goes beyond the scope of the face to improve the health of the skin on the back and d?colletage. Outside of skincare, she works to enhance her clients? beauty with brow and lash treatments, using Xtreme Lashes to add drama to eyes or warm wax to sculpt brows or depilate faces.
Blossoms Flower Shop is hard to miss. Surrounded by unassuming storefronts, the shop’s windows extend into the sidewalk to greet passersby with views of the colorful blooms inside. Many of those blooms, which arc in clusters toward the sunlight, trace their origins to the nearby San Francisco Flower Mart’s local growers. Inside the shop, florists busily arrange orchids, lilies, and exotic flowers into bouquets to celebrate special occasions such as weddings or pet bees’ birthdays.
