The Bruce Company, which received gold awards for its flora from Madison Magazine’s Best of Madison readers’ poll in 2009 and 2010, grows a huge variety of plants, trees, and shrubs on about 600 acres of nursery fields. These fields are tended affectionately with conservation practices such as crop rotation, Sudan grass composting, and finger aeration. Greenify your backyard with a large selection of outside plants—blooming shrubs start at $25, for example. Or, brighten your living room with assorted inside plants, from bonsai and cacti to cyclamen and mini-cyclone ($15 and up). Gardening supplies are also available; customers can partition their yards into child-friendly and unfriendly segments with 25 feet of garden hose ($23), deceive sky animals into posing for photos with a birdhouse ($15 and up) or feeder ($30 and up), or surprise a roommate by adding a cubic yard of mulch to his or her closet (around $32/cubic yard). If you’re uncertain about the proper leafiness to add to your life, The Bruce Company's able staff of helpful horticulturalists is on-site to offer suggestions.

The movers from You Move Me pull up to homes, determined to relieve their customers from the stress that comes with moving. They earn their clients' trust by arriving on time and then doing a careful walk through of the home before starting to load up; afterward, they run down a checklist to make sure nothing was left behind. During packing services, employees are equally conscientious, protecting customers' items in specially designed moving boxes rather than in extra-large piñatas.

A family gathers in front of a fire to watch flames dance inside a teepee of logs. After several moments, a uniformed staffer walks over to ask whether they have any questions, and, startled, they stop telling ghost stories or reminiscing about bygone summer bonfires to think about whether they'd like that very model in their own home. Fireside Hearth & Home's cozy design room has that effect. Several staged but comfortable living rooms, kitchens, and patios revolve around fireplaces and stoves, letting customers really imagine life around the hearth. The inventory of gas, wood, and electric fireplaces, as well as stoves and inserts come out of the workshops of top brands such as Heat & Glo, Heatilator, Quadra-Fire, and Outdoor Lifestyles. The knowledgeable staffers can explain the variances of styles and features, as well as install new fireplaces and convert wood fireplaces to gas ones.
