The team of professional planters from Prestige Landscapes specializes in fruit trees, giving owners access to fresh produce while promoting green communities. For each installation, the team evaluates the plot in advance and brings along a generous helping of fresh, carbon dioxide-rich soil that nurtures the young sapling and protects its modesty by covering exposed roots. Clients can choose from more than two dozen species—divided among the categories of apple, pear, peach, apricot, and cherry—each chosen for its ability to blossom without pesticides, self-pollinate, and thrive in cooler weather. As a testament to the staff's arboreal acumen, the company guarantees that each tree will flourish and bear fruit within one year of planting.

Her kitchen also creates bite-size cake balls in flavours such as coconut dream cake, lemon meringue, and chocolate mint. Flavoured popcorns, from cheddar to milk-chocolate caramel, round out the menu.
