Furniture Row Shopping Centers host four home-apparel stores in a single convenient location. The quartet of specialty stores—Sofa Mart, Oak Express, Bedroom Expressions, and Denver Mattress Co.—is designed to accommodate every room in the house. Espresso leaning shelves ($88) are fully caffeinated yet provide remarkably steady support for books, picture frames, and knickknacks. Soothe summer nights with a Perfect Harmony Isocool mattress pad ($69–$109) atop a new mattress set ($219+); top it off with an attractive brocade duvet set ($44–$68). A new lamp set ($148+) atop an end table ($118+) is a great way to encourage sofas to use more light when they read.
Drawing on 30 years of business experience, the certified Colorado arborist and the crew of licensed and insured technicians from Colorado Tree & Shrubbery Specialists trim trees and treat them with insect- and disease-control sprays. After providing free estimates, the staff takes care of everything from roots to leaves, manicuring shrubs and removing large dead or damaged trees before grinding their stumps. The crew also plows snow in the winter, delivers pre-split firewood, and is available to tell saplings bedtime stories.
Ed and Kyle Becerra, Young's Market and Garden Center’s owners, took over the business from Ed’s father, who founded it more than 50 years ago. Locally grown perennials, annuals, trees, shrubs, and Chia Pets squint at the outdoor sun, and rows of flowers line the dirt aisles of tidy greenhouses. In addition to plants, Young's inventory includes soil, fertilizers, weed-control products, and pond supplies. In season, customers can find fresh produce at Young’s bustling farmers' market.
Timberline Gardens peddles a multitude of necessities and accessories for gardeners and their plants, from fertilizers to seeds to pottery. Bulk material such as planters mix, sand, and gravel transform whole backyards into oversize flower beds, which gardeners can fill with the nursery’s more than 2,400 plant varieties. Flora and fauna native to the Denver area share display space with xeriscape plants, which require significantly less water and significantly fewer birthday parties than their needier counterparts. Timberline’s dedicated, knowledgeable staff can help customers navigate the shrubbery-hugged aisles filled with organic fertilizers and seeds, or lead them in informative classes that make it easier to use herbage for nutritional or decorative purposes.
The green-thumbed arborists at American Tree have cared for trees and shrubs for more than 15 years, a level of experience that applies to each of the services they render for commercial and residential clients. Their work ranges from preventive care, such as spraying to ward off disease or infestations of the mountain pine beetle, to full removal of dead trees or those who have given up on their quest to grow opposable thumbs. Year-round programs are also available, which include regular microinjections or pruning to keep the trees healthy and vibrant.
