Babies grow. This simple truth inspires the selection of infant and children's clothes that line the colorful racks of Trendy Uther Muthers. By selling gently used ensembles for less than they would cost in a standard store, the shop helps parents dress their youngsters in fashionable, funky attire without lamenting their investment when the clothes are outgrown. Alongside the arsenal of play clothes, dressy apparel, and comfortable shoes, furniture and home-decor items deck out bedrooms with zebra-print accents and splashes of pink. The staffers also create custom clothes, hair accessories, and bedding in tailored sizes to help tykes stand out at school and differentiate themselves from invisible friends.
Todd Rockweit draws upon scientific studies, advice from organic farmers, and an endless willingness to test and improve his own natural gardening solutions. Hunched over a microscope to peer into fresh batches of compost, he works towards that sense of connection one gets when pressing bare feet down into grass or biting into fruit grown by hand. Rockweit also sticks to a faith in organic technique so secure that in situations in which it seems synthetic products are the best solution, he will call in another company.
During visits to home yards and gardens, the Backyard Organics team works to identify weed infestations, nutrient deficiencies, and rabbits and deer destroying shrubs to look cool in National Geographic. The crew then brings to bear a range of corn-gluten meal, deer-deterrent sprays, and compost blends customized according to the season and plant cover. Soil tests reveal chemical imbalances, and services such as aeration and overseeding restore lawns to lushness after attempts to break the longest-croquet-game world record.
After laying a weather-resistant brick patio, Lowney’s Landscaping and Garden Center’s landscapers finish it off with a stone retaining wall sprouting with perennials and leafy shrubs. They manage the whole project, from design to installation, creating an artful appearance that can increase a home's value. In addition to executing everything from pruning bushes and cutting grass to seeding lawns—services they've been providing for more than 15 years—they illuminate their clients' beautiful residential and commercial properties with low-voltage, energy-efficient lighting systems. Even in winter, they strive to keep landscapes in great shape with snowplowing, salting services, and weight-loss programs for snowmen. The garden center is a place for equally passionate gardeners and novice green thumbs to wade through small blueberry plants, evergreens, tropicals, and a wide assortment of gardening materials.
When not designing eye-catching bouquets for graduations, anniversaries, and other special occasions, Best Choice Floral & Landscape helps at-home gardeners plan and care for their own efflorescent outdoor spaces.

Along with delivering colored, natural mulch to homesteads, the landscaping team can also help design and execute complex garden schematics in backyards, working around each owner’s preferences and available space.:m]]
In 1949, Kenny Schmalz founded Schmalz Custom Landscaping & Garden Center. His son Luke and Luke's wife, Donna, have since taken over, but the botanical wonderland's commitment to stunning gardens has remained constant.
