Local Love: Pereida-Rice Woodworking Warehouse

Pereida-Rice Woodworking is a first-generation family business that specializes handcrafted solid wood furniture. The company was founded by Tristan after he got a divorce. He was left with no furniture so decided to build his own. Soon after, Tristan and his brother Kalen began to build and sell furniture. In 2014, Tristan and Kalen moved the business from Santa Monica to Phoenix, the siblings’ hometown. Phoenix is his hometown, and he wanted to make Pereida-Rice a full-time business with the help of his family. 
After the move, Tristan and his brother found a house that could function as a shop, but as the business grew they bought an actual shop in Glendale and have 8 employees. Pereida-Rice started selling on Handmade at Amazon in 2015, and has since seen hockey stick growth. Handmade at Amazon accounts for the majority of Pereida-Rice's sales.

Garden Guy: Cool weather gardening tips

With the cool weather this season approaching here are some tips to follow to transition which will cover water, white washing your trees, no trimming of plants, and mulching which is key. 
First cut back on watering on established plants and trees, additional watering is needed for new plantings. Make sure that you occasionally change the soil in your pots and scrub the pots with a mixture of 1-part bleach and 10 parts water. Soil harbors pathogens and tends to build up after couple of years of use.  
Next hold off on pruning any frost-tender shrubs. For anyone with citrus trees you will want to start white washing them now to protect against any insects of fungus that they may attract or grow during the cooler weather. 
Finally mulching which is important as it conserves soil moisture, increases water percolation and moderates soil temperatures. It acts like a layer of insulation and if you use organic material, ten it will also help invigorate the soil as it decomposes. Along with all of this, mulch decreases competition from weeds and increases micro biotic activity at root systems. All of this helps our plants resist disease while cooling down the soil and helping to build a plants heat resistance.
