During the summer season, English Gardens holds a summer planting sale as well as weekly in-store gardening tutorials every Saturday at 10 a.m.

It’s easier to bond with a new home when its sofas are topped with comfy throw pillows or its walls are decorated with poignant artwork. The design consultants at Jugo Designs understand this important emotional connection potential buyers must feel with their future abodes, leveraging it to stage homes and help them to sell quickly.
Some home stagings are as simple as half-day reshufflings of the sellers’ existing furnishings, adding a few accessories and subtracting a few squatting grandparents here and there. Others require two days’ worth of decor overhaul. Once new owners scoop up homes, the like-new staging furniture—including custom-designed couches and upholstery—goes back to Jugo’s showroom, where customers can snag it for up to 60% off retail prices.
