For those with or without green thumbs, Armstrong Garden Center is an oasis for all things green and growing that enables customers to create the landscape of their dreams. The company’s roots go back to 1889 when John Armstrong started growing eucalyptus trees and olive trees in Southern California. In the Rancho Penasquito’s center, the educated and friendly staff makes the experience of trying to decide whether to plant low water perennials or blossoming apple trees a pleasure. Beyond being a place to purchase plants, pots, trellises, trees, fountains and fertilizer, Armstrong’s offers home visits and landscaping services, free garden classes, planting guides and more.
Quick Serve Carpet Care and Restoration's technicians maintain pristine-looking floors by steam cleaning carpets and helping treat unsightly mold and flood damage. They roll up to curbs in company vehicles with truck-mounted, high-pressure extraction cleaning systems, which use steam and specially formulated detergents to deep clean carpet fibers. In addition to applying deodorizer or stain-resistant Scotchgard for additional fees, the technicians can also repair carpets by fixing seams or removing burn marks. Their carpet-repairing skills extend to homeowner emergencies as well. They find and treat mold infestations in hard-to-notice places and help dry puddles of standing water after a flood or particularly messy night of apple bobbing.

After recovering from an injury incurred in college athletics, Valley Fit Body Boot Camp’s creator Adam Luckey emerged with a fitness formula that combines core strengthening and body toning to help to break down calories. His six-step system defeated the lethargy that settled on him after months of being unable to exercise and months more of being unmotivated. Now, he shares his method with others, which was streamlined by the trial and error he was subjected to along the way. Mr. Luckey and his instructors eschew military-style shouting, preferring gentler methods of support and encouragement. Their uplifting messages are matched by the support of the gym’s triple-bonded foam floor, which puts weary joints at ease and simulates the sensation of walking through a field of cotton-candy shrubs at the height of spring blossom.
