Beyond ensuring that each hand and foot they touch is left soft and elegant, the nail technicians at Divines Destiny Spa also foster a passion for their clients' health. That's why they use pipeless pedicure bowls that are rinsed and refilled with a botanical-infused soak for every client, effectively avoiding the nail fungi and 1980s dance moves that can spread from foot to foot in less sanitation-minded salons. Guests can also savor a glass of wine as they select a color from the spa?s nail-polish collection, which was handpicked by Divines clients.
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.
Oregon Green Pros helps customers grow hearty plants with wood ash?burnt wood that improves soil quality and contains calcium carbonate, which raises the pH of the soil. Slightly alkaline soil ensures that plants receive proper nutrients. In addition to using it on growing veggies such as tomatoes, Oregon Green Pros recommends sprinkling the ash on lawns to increase clover production and provide more nectar to bees, as well as spreading the wood ash around the base of hardwood trees.
Whether pruning Portland's most prominent trees—including a 150-year-old Oregon white oak and a semiretired giving tree—or tending to newborn saplings in residential lawns, the International Society of Arboriculture¬–certified arborists at Urban Forest Pro treat each tree with care, earning the Angie's List Super Service award for three consecutive years. The crew's cornucopia of services includes trimming, deep-root fertilization, and organic pest control using environmentally friendly sprays. After tree pruning and removal, the technicians recycle all branches, milling the large pieces into furniture and repurposing smaller pieces as wood chips for local farms or false teeth for colonial re-enactors.
