Lush greenery and orderly rows of pink and red mixed annuals create a gardening wonderland at The Shed Inc., a complete garden center and nursery staffed by landscape-design experts. Along with shrubs, trees, and flowers, the center stocks lawn ornaments to help customers populate their ideal yard paradise and re-create favorite Night Court scenes with stone fairies. Shovels, pruners, and hand tools line shelves alongside fertilizers and fungicides, and a stock of topsoil and mulch prepares even the most barren landscapes to nurture new growth. A propane filling station also stands by, equipping grills to sizzle up some burgers or decorate a neighbor's pool toys with black stripes.:m]]

When working with the certified lawn technicians at Whole Lawns, homeowners never have to worry about their grass soaking up the hazardous lawn-care chemicals of old. Eschewing those practices completely, the team achieves verdant pastures by spritzing yardscapes with organic, eco-friendly products. They keep themselves accountable to this practice by listing every ingredient on their detailed product labels, whether they’re controlling pests or feeding grass roots with organic nutrients.
H. Teller Archibald opened the doors of the first Fannie May in 1920, delighting the passing palates of Chicago’s LaSalle Street with exquisite chocolates that continue to tickle taste buds today. Though nearly a century has passed, Fannie May’s alchemists still rely on the same recipes as the first store, refusing to budge on quality even when faced with shortages during war times and the never-ending Gregory Middle School food fight of 1997. Renowned for sweetness and attention to detail, the chocolatiers’ treats stand as an institution of inventive eats, from the gooey pecan and caramel of their Pixies to the sunny, toasted-coconut-encased dark chocolate of their Trinidads.
Keil Bros' garden center and nursery is heartily stocked with a plethora of seasonally changing plant products hailing from a number of regional growers, including Chesapeake Nursery and Monrovia Nursery. With the summer solstice recently passed, the center's verdant and sprawling inventory is now focused on helping the mid-season gardener. Ready-to-go planters ($25–$50) and pre-arranged hanging baskets ($15–$25) keep green thumbs green and pristine fingernails clean while also adding opulent oxygen sources to homesteads. Come the auburns of autumn, Keil Bros turns its gardens over to organic goodies such as apples from the Hudson Valley, ornamental cabbages, and pumpkins just begging to be brought to cackling life through blade and flame. Year-round, the center also provides essential tools and lawn-care goods from brands such as Toro and Lawn-Boy.
