A stark contrast to the surrounding arid scenery, Elgin Nursery and Tree Farm’s lush 35-acre grounds yield verdant trees and plants sure to thrive under the searing desert sun. Since 1986, the expansive gardening center has supplied metro-area green thumbs with native, desert-adapted, Mediterranean, and tropical plants, and trees that sprout legal tender despite parents' contradictory opinions. Its staff is comprised of a group of knowledgeable horticulturalists, some of whom are bilingual, as well as two ISA Certified Arborists, who share their expertise on the proper diagnoses for sick plants, solutions for irrigation issues, and other planting advice, The center's packets of seeds and all manners of gardening tools, planters, and charming yard art also vie for the attention and lasting affection of strolling visitors.
Far more than a purveyor of organic matter, Elgin Nursery and Tree Farm also expands its patron’s grey matter with free gardening workshops on topics such as vegetable gardening, pruning, and landscape irrigation. They also offer delivery and planting services in the Phoenix-metro area for an additional fee. The neighborhood arbor hub supports seniors, military members, and frequent visitors with additional discounts, in addition to guaranteeing all plants for one-year after the date of purchase.

At Karsh’s Bakery, a knife won’t come near your bread until you order it—point-of-sale slicing keeps loaves as fresh as possible. It’s exactly that sort of dedication to quality that has kept Karsh’s in business for more than 50 years. In fact, since the business opened in the 1960s, not much has changed, at least not when it comes to the friendly service or the kosher baked goods. Locals flock to Karsh's for the rye bread, which comes in several varieties, including seeded, unseeded, and marbled. Behind the counter, staff box kaiser rolls, crescent rolls, and bagels 13 to the dozen, and top party trays with treats such as scones, napoleons, cookies, rugalach, and eclairs. Of course, the bakers always keep a number of fresh-baked, 7", german chocolate, carrot, and raspberry delight cakes on hand for impromptu celebrations and food fights, while custom cakes can be ordered to help mark a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other special occasion.
Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
Awarded the Best Japanese Tea in 2009 and Best Escape to Japan in 2008 by the Phoenix New Times, the Japanese Friendship Garden captivates the senses with 3.5 acres of lush outdoor space. Designed by more than 50 landscape architects from Himeji, the tranquil plant life and stonework emulate the delicacy of Japanese gardens while simultaneously enduring the onslaught of a desert environment. The garden features more than 1,500 tons of hand-picked rock lining the paths and waterways, authentic Japanese accents such as stone footbridges and lanterns, and more than 50 varieties of plants, including two types of bamboo and one man-eating kudzu. Stroll by the flowing streams to relax and gaze up at the majestic 12-foot waterfall before stopping to admire the 300 colorful fish swimming, eating, and slam-dancing in the Koi pond.
