Tucked in the rustic overgrowth beside the creek that inspired its name, Covington Creek Nursery spans 5 perfectly manicured acres adorned year-round with seasonal, local, and rare flowers, herbs, and trees. Staffers help guests wandering through the greenery, offering tips on bird-feeder care, how to maintain unusual plants such as Japanese maples, or what to do if trees become infested with bad-mannered wood nymphs. They also invite guests to hands-on classes and events such as Easter-egg hunts and vertical-gardening how-to sessions.
At The Grape Adventure, a wine bar and restaurant that was recognized by the Washington State Wine Commission as a Grand Award winner in 2010, the menu of inventive tapas and upscale American cuisine teams up with a sprawling list of imported and domestic wines to sate hunger and thirst. The tapas-style avocado-hummus plate serves as a pool in which pita chips and tomatoes play ($8.95) and the steak bruschetta drapes seasoned steak and tomato salad over a warmly toasted baguette augmented by a gorgonzola spread ($9.95).
Although often overlooked, the floor is the most important part of the home because without it, there would be nothing to walk on and nowhere to break dance. All Flooring Wholesalers recognizes this fact, and for the past 25 years has devoted much its 2,500-square-foot showroom solely to thousands of carpet, hardwood, tile, and laminate-flooring samples. Its inventory, which ranges from solid walnut planks to laminate tile, has options across all price ranges. All items can be installed by the in-house team of flooring installers who travel to homes within King and Pierce Counties and replace existing floors with fresh planks or layers of cushy carpet.
