The largest manufacturer and supplier of paints in the Pacific Northwest, Parker Paint enables new-hue-craving customers to roll and brush fresh coats of luscious pigments onto formerly drab and dreary household surfaces. To reinvent interiors, several options await including the semigloss Wall Glow ($34.27/gallon) and the Velva Kolor ($30.59/gallon), with a less-reflective eggshell finish. Parker Paint also carries a selection of weather-scoffing exterior paints, such as the flat-finish Flextron 100 ($33.03/gallon) to help homeowners paint a realistic yet unflattering outdoor mural of the neighbors.
Plant Farm's full-service garden center sits on 20 sprawling acres of farmland, which yield a cornucopia of flowers and foliage that are sold straight to horti-curious consumers. With more than 100,000 herb plants grown annually, Plant Farm tempts cooks to spicy up pastas and salads with its basil plants ($4.99 for 1-gal.). Grab a fall mum, one of Plant Farm's many rotating perennials, to add a burst of color to drab flowerbeds ($3.69 for 4"). Hardy hibiscuses in an array of colors display resilient fortitude in a wide range of climates, willing to live in sun-kissed gardens or groves ($8.99). Plant Farm also cultivates blooming hydrangeas ($25.99) and hanging foliage ($7.99 for 6").

Oftentimes, hobbies are neglected when more serious work comes calling—like a career in clinical psychology. But for Alan Tower, it was the contrary, as he quit his practice to dedicate himself to a lifelong hobby that germinated as a mail-order nursery. Eight years later, he established Tower Perennial Gardens, and went on to serve as chair for the American Hosta Society convention and founder of the Spokane Hosta Society.
Today, Tower Perennial Gardens is home to thousands of varieties of plants, trees, and flowers, which spread across 8 scenic acres and originate from every continent except Antarctica—by decree of Santa Claus. Myriad display gardens showcase cacti, shade plants, and flowering trees to provide inspiration for green-thumbed visitors. But for non-DIY customers, Tower’s team of professionals enthusiastically offers its services to forge a lush landscape from scratch or restore a rundown garden to its former glory.
