Rock & Rose Landscapes is an eco-friendly landscape design, installation, and maintenance firm that plants beds with climatically adapted foliage and feeds natural lawns and meadows with organic fertilizers. During a landscaping consultation, Rock & Rose's professional lawn pamperers will discuss specific, site-appropriate plans to reimagine boring backyards and weed-throttled gardens as well-manicured Edens. Ninety minutes is usually enough time to cover all aspects of a project—such as overall design, budget, and maintenance—and definitely enough time to cover the cultural significance of red-capped garden gnomes. While not included in today's deal, Rock & Rose also offers garden installations and on-going maintenance for clients who opt to implement proposed landscaping plans.
Finally there is a company that provides professional assistance with planning and managing home renovation projects. While this service has been used by commercial building owners for years, residential homeowners have typically ventured into the arena of remodeling alone.
Encircling the Bay Area with its attentive brand of customer service, San Francisco Car Care keeps customers mobile with a wide variety of automotive repair capabilities. The team's expertise starts at the tires. They deal with leading manufacturers such as Michelin, BFGoodrich, and Uniroyal when folks need replacements. But their expertise also lies in helping people prolong that inevitability with tire rotation, computer balancing, and ancient rubber-protecting hexes. Owners can also bring their sickly cars in for procedures ranging from oil changes and tune ups to transmission repairs.
Mr. Fixit, Inc. employs sure-footed roof ramblers who rid mucky gutters of detritus and gunk so that rainwater may find its way back to earth.

Once gutter-jambs are thoroughly unclogged, home owners can enjoy a 30-minute complimentary remodel consultation and may also choose to have their abode pressure washed and the deck cleaned by Mr. Fixit at a savings of 25%.
My Backyard's selection of rustic knickknacks and furniture gives homes and gardens an off-the-beaten-path look. The shop—a sister store of Tassajara Nursery—lines its shelves with a countrified hodgepodge of items, including one-of-a-kind birdhouses, fountains in a range of sizes, and impressive pottery pieces. Assorted lanterns and wreaths imbue gardens with pastoral warmth, and hand-painted dressers and imported Peruvian furniture bring country comforts indoors. Friendly staff members greet visitors with a helpful hand and an eye for decorating that has been passed down from an ancient Cyclops clan of interior designers.
At Let's Play in Spanish, children brush up on their Castilian communication skills through interactive, playful teaching methods. Each of the four weekly classes lasts for 50 minutes, which is enough time to master a few words and the first volume of Don Quixote.

The program's nontraditional methods encompass singing, theater, games, and Peruvian toucan wrangling. Students can supplement lessons by purchasing educational CDs, DVDs, and books specifically designed for the curriculum. Check out the locations and schedules page to choose the same day, time, and instructor for each week's class.
