A 3.5-acre horticultural haven, Millcreek Gardens gives bloom-seekers a means to realize dreams of colorful, lush outdoor spaces by presenting a wide array of shrubs, trees, and assorted flowerpot inhabitants. Stroll amid verdant rows of plant life, perusing prettified foliage ranging from the serene cerulean hues of a delphinium to the cheerful, bubbly blooms of a hydrangea. Accent a lovely lawn with a classic apple tree ($40+), make the bed for a plot of fragrant flowers ($2–$20), or cover up barren yards with a symphony of shrubbery ($6.50–$50). The one-stop shop also stocks organic plant foods, soil amendments, and fertilizers for keeping growing greenery as strong as a box of oxen.
Forsey's Furniture Galleries gussies up living quarters, stocking its two stores with furniture, art, and home accessories from high-end designers such as Stickley, Copeland, Dale Tiffany, and Global Views. A Fred and Ginger sculpture ($105) pays tribute to the human form with an abstract rendering of two dancers in midtwirl, and the Aarhus box ($147) stylishly protects documents and jewelry from dust, light damage, and thieves who don't know how to open boxes. Customers can cast a multichromatic glow over living spaces with lamps from Dale Tiffany ($197), each channeling the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright with geometric patterns forged from richly hued stained glass.
The master HVAC technicians at Acme Heating & Air Conditioning examine and adjust furnaces to ensure they meet the standards for Questar Gas' Green Sticker Program. Since natural-gas formulas change based on factors such as altitude, gas-burning appliances need to be updated and taught to safely consume au courant fuel cocktails or risk emitting malevolent levels of carbon monoxide. A skilled tech inspects, and possibly resizes, the furnace's burner hole and calibrates the manifold pressure to promote proper mingling of air and gas. When all is right with the system, the natural gas burns away completely leaving no remnants to roam the house planting whoopee cushions under the welcome mat.
Silver Star Hardware’s friendly staff skillfully proffers advice for home improvement while helping to outfit and accessorize homes with an eclectic, frequently updated array of functional and decorative accents. Troves of hardware promise to grease the wheels of domestic efficiency, from a menagerie of elephant hooks ($9) and butterfly hinges ($6.50/pair) to toggle and outlet-flattering switch plates ($21.50–$27.50) and twig-shaped toilet-paper holders ($49.50). Fulfill metal urges with a spangling of cast-iron star knobs ($4.50) or copper house numbers ($11.75 each) that ambidextrously emblazon either addresses or pi, or pin households’ hearts on their façades with vivid peace-dove banners ($12). Once residential shopping lists are dispatched, customers can browse the gift shop or treat their own soul habitats to a cup of steaming java at the on-site coffee bar.
