Rolling Ridge Nursery contains an audio-nasal explosion of azaleas ($26.95), lilacs ($36.95), and forsythia plants ($36.95), all of which are waiting with cute little stamens pressed to the window in hopes that you'll take them home to your garden. Off-season gardeners, meanwhile, can get the jump on spring with an ambush of oxygen-rich houseplants (starting at $3.99). Options more practical than organic include hand-tuned wind chimes (starting at $25), planters, patio furniture, and essential gardening utensils like pruning shears and dynamite.
Strands of ivy dance across the walls, crisp linen-topped tables set the stage for Italian and Albanian meals, and an elegant wood bar presents various libations. In this romantically lit arena, chefs sprinkle walnuts on chicken and almonds on 10 ounces of grilled trout. They also bake lamb and douse it in red-wine sauce. The kitchen team prepares desserts such as baklava to give meals a happy ending, just like movies where the princess finds her prince and gets him to marry her without a prenuptial agreement.
Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.
Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants—such as crickets, ants, and grazing neighbors—shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
Ahner's Garden and Gifts shelters more than 100 different varieties of tropical houseplants in a Dutch-made retail greenhouse. After passing through the greenhouse's gravel detectors and emptying their pockets of stones, blossom boosters can shop for horticultural accents in climate-controlled comfort all year round. Floral fans especially fawn over Ahner's nearly 25 different types of orchids. Premium orchids in 6 in. pots start at $29.50 and can be found in such exotic varietals as the Wilsonara and the Brassia, known as the "spider orchid" because of its double life as an orchid and photographer for The Daily Bugle. If your planters are currently being used to store your collection of precious antique cobwebs, Ahner's botany builders will happily fill them with custom flower arrangements. Prices are based on planter type and size.
The petal pushers at Flowers to the People assemble sustainable holiday centerpieces with blossoms from local sowers or sustainable Californian and South American farms. Customers order personalized arrangements that showcase hydroponic roses, eucalyptus, orchids, and other specialty flowers to present to a loved one, accent a holiday buffet, or block Uncle Josh's cross-table reach for the gravy boat. Going the extra ecological step, the flower shop collects many of its vases and buckets from antique dealers and secondhand shops, or binds bouquets in recycled pint glasses, wine glasses, and mason jars. The environmentally sympathetic staff composts plant waste and repurposes packaging materials into solar-powered hot-dog cookers.
