For nearly 80 years, Gemmell's Garden Centre has fortified and ornamented lawns with plants, garden decor, and accessories. Undernourished noses can feast on the fruits of Gemmell's 24 lush greenhouses, where more than 48 combinations of colourful, fragrant Victorian hanging baskets ($39.95) originate. Customers can conceal a lawn’s bald spots with photosynthesizing toupees such as vegetable plants, including more than 30 varieties of plump tomatoes ($1.99–$4.29). Trees and shrubs ($10+), meanwhile, lavish lawns with a leafy canopy in the summer and shelter for hibernating garden gnomes in the winter. The nursery’s friendly, knowledgeable staff provides helpful advice on gardening and landscape design, gladly assisting customers in selecting plants for filling flower beds, pots, or piñatas.
The Amish Store deals in handcrafted wood furniture and accessories built in the United States by Amish communities of Indiana and Ohio for every room, nook, and cranny of the home.

The heirloom-worthy Laurel Victorian bed ($1,109.27/queen) comfortably frames dreams about being framed in traditional spindling and a single bow design. Every piece can be customized with a variety of woods and stains, including hickory, cherry, maple, and quarter-sawn white oak, and furnishings can be fitted with fabrics and leathers (prices vary with fabric, leather, stain and wood options).
The landscape architects and gardeners at Kingston Nurseries have a passion for creating crisp outdoor designs. Randall Wieting––one of the nursery's principal horticulturists––boasts more than 30 years of experience in the designing and building of landscapes, and works to meld mass, scale, color, line, shape, contrast, rhythm, and texture into each unique outdoor space. The garden center provides helpful advice for home gardeners looking to stock up on greenery or inquire about the latest new plant species available for purchase. Still, staff members can't help but exercise their design muscles daily, so they also invite customers to bring in their home containers, then draft seasonal green displays to suit any budget or occasion.
Since equipping the world with its first wood-slat recliner in 1928, La-Z-Boy has branded itself as a well-known producer of high-quality furniture, including their signature recliner, loveseats, ottomans, upholstered sofas, accent tables, and much more.

A host of recliners, sofas, sectionals, the demi stationary chair and sleepers are also waiting to invade homes with their tasteful presence.
Clasped between Saguaro National Park and the Ironwood Preserve, Double R Ranch appears as though it were plucked straight from the frames of an old Western movie. The windswept grounds stand as a gateway to the thousands of untouched acres that quietly stitch together the Northwest side of Tucson. The ranch gives visitors a chance to explore that land with horseback rides and birthday parties. It also offers weekend getaways and RV hookups to city-dwellers in need of an escape from the crowds and door-to-door minivan salesmen that come with urban living. Double R also accommodates guests who have their own horses with overnight stabling services.
