Lavocat's welcomes nature cultivators of all kinds into its lushly packed nursery, replete with plants, pots, supplies, and a convivial staff. More than 800 varieties of shrubs, flowers, and other greenery fill 11 greenhouses, tempting gardeners to experiment with different types of verdant life or inject new accents into old gardens. Green-thumbed caretakers can create aerial gardens with 10-inch hanging baskets ($14.99) or add splashes of color to soil with flats of annuals such as alyssum and begonias ($11.50+). One-gallon perennials include Silver Mound artemisia and Solar Flare baptisia ($5.99–$7.99), which can accent yards from year to year. A series of small 4.5-inch potted plants make cylindrical, leafy reimaginings of Stonehenge infinitely simpler to construct ($2.99+).
The licensed and insured landscaping team at Lunchesrus Landscaping & Lawn Maintenance Service keeps properties pristine through a wide spectrum of landscaping services. Crews can visit homes weekly to perform such routine tasks as lawn mowing, or make one-time stops to complete projects such as mailbox installation should a previous box ever go on a bill-only diet. Lunchesrus provides free estimates ahead of every service in order to prevent miscommunication and allow homeowners to budget properly.
The staff members at Salmon Creek Nursery know plants. Much of the vast inventory of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees are grown onsite at the 45-year-old family-owned nursery, allowing the staff to make sure each plant is healthy from the time it sprouts to the day it's adopted into a new garden. When not tending to the needs of trees, on-staff landscapers are ready and waiting to help customers to create their own inspiring outdoor spaces, filling up backyards or spare bathtubs with all manner of flora. Walking through the lush, meticulously tended nursery feels like strolling through a park. A footbridge carries visitors past a diminutive waterfall, and Japanese maples and fruit trees admire their reflections and elegant limbs in a wide, still pond. The view is decidedly more rustic inside the garden center, where lanterns, baskets, and wooden chairs hang suspended from tree trunks that reach toward the roof, and vintage wheelbarrows teem with everything from plants and potting soil to garden stones etched with inspirational messages.
Since 1951, the award-winning landscapers at Lincoln Park Nursery have assisted homeowners with landscape designs for garden and backyard projects, incorporating eye-catching elements such as outdoor goldfish ponds and fountains. With the skills of Edward Scissorhands and the added ability to shake customers’ hands safely, knowledgeable staff members offer input to help customers beautify front yards, garden paths, and secret gardens. The nursery’s two locations maintain a large, constantly updated stock of ornamentals, vines, fruiting trees, and wall stones and pavers.
The cooking school's team of cooking instructors and chefs work diligently to instill a love of cooking in students of all ages. Inside the Kids’ Kitchen, children ages 3 to 6, assisted by their parents and helped along by friendly instructors, prepare healthy, kid-friendly fare. As they work through recipes, the Future Chefs class participants also learn kitchen essentials such as measuring skills, pot and pan protocol, and how to operate small appliances. During adult classes, adult students roll up their sleeves and dive into multipart recipes, from a Provençal-style zucchini and greens torte to sweet-potato casserole. Adult students can choose from hands-on and demonstration-style classes, and the cooking school's chefs and instructors keep household menus fresh by leading new classes every three months. In addition to taking traditional cooking classes, grown-up students can also improve their eating habits with healthy lifestyle classes. Taught by registered dietitians, the classes cover food's impact on current health issues, and prepare students to make the good dietary decisions that will stay with them for the rest of their long, wellness-filled lives.
