Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

When she opened the first Redenta’s Garden location in 1992, Ruth Kinler made sure to hire only experienced gardeners. She believed then—and still does—that her employees should be as passionate about the ins and outs of gardening as they are about frolicking among the first buds of spring. Very little has changed in the ensuing two decades; the shop continues to specialize in 100% organic plants and delight area gardeners with its unique varietals. Among the fragrant aisles, one can expect to find rare annuals growing alongside native and water-wise plants, the latter celebrated for their disciplined sipping habits.
As organic gardeners themselves, the store’s staff educates customers on seasonal blooms and holds regular classes and events. Though class topics vary, they often include helpful instruction in areas such as organic vegetable gardening, cooking with herbs and vegetables, and safely removing one’s hand from a flytrap. Redenta’s Garden also assists homeowners with modern landscape design that aims for low-maintenance, eco-friendly solutions.:
Hiltons Home Center helps customers visualize their new floor by allowing them to tiptoe through a show room adorned with multiple sample swatches of carpet, tile, or hardwood. Design consultants aim to pair patrons with their desired material from a catalogue that contains luxury Karndean and patterned Southwind carpeting, as well as rugged Mohawk flooring. Rich coppers and flecks of slate swirl across Karndean Knight tile ($3.02/sq. ft.) forged from stone versatile enough to withstand the dropping of dishes in a highly trafficked kitchen or the dropping of paratroopers from a highly misguided mission. Toes trace the authenticating grains squiggling through slabs of 5-inch Maple Ridge hardwoods, available in shades of natural, dark brown, or red ($5.57/sq. ft.). Clients can also opt for plush carpeting to outfit a room ($0.82+/sq. ft.), treating feet to a surface cushier than a pillow stuffed with gummi worms.
It’s a good thing James Bryant’s parents didn’t pay him more allowance. At 10, he found his $10 weekly payday unacceptable, so he started knocking on neighbors’ doors to see if they’d like him to mow their lawns. The business grew as he did, and, by the time he finished high school, he felt certain that landscaping was his true passion. Since officially founding Bryant Lawn and Sprinkler in 1995, James has continued to find fulfillment in creating natural works of art out of previously lackluster yards and gardens. He and his team do this by planting flowers, mulching gardens and installing eco-conscious sprinkler systems. They also design yard lighting so that, at night, freshly pruned shrubs stand out and moths can use shadow puppets to tell their brief life stories.

Samudio and her staff of greenthumbs will gladly aid customers with photosynthesizer selection, sharing planting and care tips for aesthetics ranging from asparagus ferns and creeping ivy to topiaries shaped like the mailman.
