There are a few telltale signs that a house has been visited by Low Rate Hauling & Yard Pick Up. If all of the unfound Easter eggs that once littered its front yard have magically vanished in the course of a day, that's one sign. And if there's no evidence of a dead fir tree in the weeks after Christmas, that's another. The company's technicians specialize in leaving no trace behind with services that keep lawns looking their best. Besides giving garden gnomes some extra space to spread out, they can trim hedges and tear down fences.

Sprouting orchids fill the nursery at Emerald City Orchids and enchant visitors with a colorful bouquet of rare, imported, and locally grown specimens. Staff members deftly navigate the canopy of petals, helping hobbyists or green-thumbed experts pick out a particular species and arranging individual stems within decorative pots. Education is also a priority for the shop, which features informative reading materials on how to properly care for orchids and how to tell whether she loves you or loves you not without actually damaging a flower. Surrounded by the tropical ambiance of fragrant orchid blooms, the nursery's café area stimulates senses with the scent of percolating coffee, sweet pastries, and a selection of beers and wines.

Seattle Tilth cultivates a healthy urban environment by teaching people about growing food organically, conserving natural resources, greening their lawns, and supporting local food systems. Adult classes expound on organic gardening, food preservation, and urban livestock, whereas youth programs tour organic gardens, demonstrate how to grow plants, and inspire young palates with taste tests of fresh vegetables.

Seattle Tilth also engages local residents in food production with its community kitchens and Seattle Youth Garden Works (SYGW) program. At the community kitchen, people collaborate by cooking, cleaning, and sharing a meal together. SYGW empowers underserved youth, some of whom face homelessness, with an opportunity to work on a farm and sell produce as a way to gain valuable job and social skills.
