– Backyard Kitchen Design –

Stone Ridge Landscapes

Sheltering in place has caused many of us take a good look at our living space. One way to elevate your backyard is with a beautiful, outdoor kitchen design from Stone Ridge Landscapes (blue stone pavers leading the way to your new stone pizza oven, granite sink, and gourmet grill, anyone?), which has an artistic eye and the muscle to get your upgrade done right.

Modern Shacks

A weekend home should be an escape. Modern Shacks builds alternative living spaces (from homes to art studios and pool houses) that incorporate natural surroundings into a modern aesthetic. The energy-efficient construction is a money-saving bonus, ranging from passive solar heating to top-of-the-line air systems.

– Green Building Network –

Passive House Alliance — Hudson Valley

The mission at Passive House Alliance is to contribute to a low-carbon future. Through education, training and advocacy, this local chapter of the membership-based Passive House Alliance U.S. works with partners throughout the Northeast to build standards for a cleaner future. A Passive House Alliance Hudson Valley chapter member Michael Robinson (with his construction company Urban Myth Construction/Stephen Taya Properties, LLC.) completed the North Miller Passive Multifamily project in Newburgh, which will collect data on how to deliver cost effective, superior performing buildings.

– Home Center (Mid-Hudson Valley) –

Williams Lumber & Home Centers

Everyone in the Mid-Hudson Valley knows this is the place to go for all of our home needs, but that was never more the case than during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic. As home projects increased, so did Williams’ sales, especially in the paint, lawn, and garden departments. Not only did they keep up with foot traffic and restocking shelves, but they also offered their 250 employees voluntary layoffs if they chose to self-quarantine.

– Home Center (Upper Hudson Valley) –


This family-owned building materials supplier, which started as a small wooden storefront by the railroad tracks in Hillsdale, has been serving home builders and homeowners for more than 110 years. Here, it’s not just about the products, it’s about their specialists and services, which include everything from windows and doors, to roofing, decking, flooring, kitchen and bath design, and a dedicated marble and tile shop.

– Mid-Century Home Goods –

Hudson River Mercantile

Wishing your home felt more like Betty Draper’s chic Ossining abode (minus the angsty housewife vibes)? Dip into this Nyack shop for retro finds, like brightly colored enamel nesting bowls and serving trays, vintage Dansk cookware, sofas and stools with mid-century lines, ’70s cookbooks, and more.

Eastdale Village

Yes, Poughkeepsie’s Eastdale Village has gorgeous apartments and townhomes. Yes, it has 20 acres of parkland with access to the Wappingers Creek. Perhaps the crowning glory, however, is the sheer number of past Best of Hudson Valley winners in the shopping corridor. Do Rosticceria Rossi & Sons and Sweetbakes Café ring a bell?

– Place for the New Gardener –

Adams Fairacre Farms

It’s never too late to pick up a new hobby, especially when it’s gardening and you have Adams Fairacre Farms to help. The pros at their Garden Center can test your soil to determine how to best treat it; set you up with seeds tools; and even help nurture your new green thumb from home. The website offers helpful how-to videos, a gardening blog, FAQs, and even tips for making “cocktail magic with herbs.”

– Plumbing Supplier –

N&S Supply

This fourth-generation-owned business has the latest in products that promote good health and convenience, such as self-cleaning toilets, hands-free or touchless faucets, and app-activated steam showers. And forget about that toilet paper shortage: They’ve got bidets, too. Check out the website’s new virtual showroom, where you’ll find a health and wellness tab, as well as examples of eco-friendly, high-tech, and air-quality products.

– Tree Care Specialist –

Kingsley Tree Care

Ian Kingsley grew up caring for trees, trimming and pruning for his dad at Henry L. Kingsley Tree Care for years before graduating with a degree in forest health from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in 2011. In 2014, he took over the family business and rebranded to Kingsley Tree Care. These days, he’s sharing his passion and eco-conscious philosophy with customers, whether than means removing trees, saving damaged trees, or planting new ones.
