The green-thumbed technicians at Gardens by Marsetti cultivate lush, thick lawns with aeration and fertilization services. Clients consult with lawn specialists to describe their yard-related goals, such as achieving grass that's as comfortable to bare feet as socks made of wookie fur. Technicians thoroughly aerate grassy areas, removing plugs of soil to allow oxygen, water, and nutrients to enter the ground and nourish roots. After aerating lawns, technicians determine how much fertilizer is appropriate to foster grass health before feeding eager turf.
For more than three decades, ABC Tree Farms have provided the Bay Area with seasonal fun October through December. Summer inspires the first round of recreation in the form of Summer Fun Zones packed with inflatable bounce houses masquerading as castles and slides and fresh harvests of local cherries, peaches, melons, and other fruits. During October, they run 20 pumpkin-themed locations, some of which also feature inflatable bounce houses and other attractions. Once Thanksgiving passes, groves of Christmas trees spring up, having made their way south from Oregon and Washington. There they will stand until Christmas Eve, hoping to decorate homes or become the model that inspires a revamped line of evergreen air fresheners.
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.
