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.
The skilled staff at Edible Arrangements artfully adjusts premium berries, melons, and citrus into dazzling fruit bouquets. Ideal for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and NASA rover launches, nutritional bundles arrive in a variety of vases ranging from footballs to Hello Kitty containers. Each bouquet can be complemented with a box of chocolate-dipped fruit housing strawberries, banana slices, or Granny Smith apple wedges.

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.
Shutterfly's sprawling assortment of customized keepsakes proves that, though time marches on a linear path, there are several ways to retrace its steps. On Shutterfly?s easy-to-navigate website, customers upload, preserve, and share personal photographs through electronic and physical displays. Once pictures have been stored in your Shutterfly account, they remain accessible at any point. From there, customers can edit and share their photos through private share sites, email, and social media, instantly building albums for far-flung family members.
The same degree of customization typifies the website's physical products, from prints to customized calendars with the photos you love. The signature photo books collect mementos into a professionally bound volume, where they are surrounded by original captions, themed backgrounds, and creative page layouts for almost any occasion. Cards and stationary frame pictures on envelope-ready paper, whereas calendars sport images for each month and on individual dates such as birthdays. Shutterfly also transforms stills into less traditional photo gifts including iPhone cases, mugs, gift wrap, and adhesive wall decals.
