TurfWorks is a full-care lawn service staffed by experienced professionals who live in the communities they serve, giving them valuable insider knowledge on how to best treat their clients' lawns. Wrangle wiry weeds into submission with the TurfWorks spray service, or renovate greenery with a full lawn-care maintenance package. The latter option, which is good for two lawn cuts, includes trimming, mowing, and more, all designed to get lawns into shipshape without the hassle of moving into an Astroturf-trimmed houseboat. All services are applicable for lots up to a quarter of an acre. The experts at TurfWorks know the soil and vegetation of the Oklahoma City area and utilize their wisdom to treat such area-specific issues as foreign vegetation, insects, and shifty-eyed, grass-chewing neighbors.
Sisters Mary Shappee and Gert Shuckhart have been taming horses for most of their lives, beginning as children in 4-H club. While Gert manages Majic Stables' office and rare bookmark collection, Mary's passion for riding keeps her in the saddle, where she teaches private and group lessons that rein in riders as young as 5 years old. A 70'x198' indoor arena allows for nighttime and fair-weather rides, and the 100'x200' outdoor area is dotted with jumps and dressage letters for tricky choreography.
Midwest Lawn and Landscape maintains landscapes and helps clients keep yard carpets weed-free with a range of services. Professional wild-plant stalkers arrive on golden chariots, armed with powerful weed-busting poison and a distaste for dandelion tea. Aimed at giving grass harassers the heave-ho, they travel to homes, arriving on time to treat affected areas of up to 8,000 square feet. Licensed through the Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture, the team leaves personal pastures luscious and ready to host barbecues or lawn-angel marathons.
At TG Farms Pumpkin Patch, autumn’s shifting breezes not only herald a fresh crop of gourds, but also the start of the farm’s annual festivities. From morning until nightfall, families traipse through the patch in search of a pumpkin that will transform into their dream jack-o’-lantern or a car for their children to take to college, and navigate the twists and turns of a massive corn maze. On a calm pond, ducks await generous handfuls of feed, and a petting zoo lets wee ones commune with calves and goats. Back under a roof, the gift shop hosts decorative gourds, straw bales, and other fall decor.
Although autumn is the season when activity reaches a fever pitch, TG Farms is open to outdoor enthusiasts year-round. In spring, visitors learn how crops grow in the fields and flowers bloom in greenhouses. When the sun strengthens into summer, farmers peddle homegrown tomatoes and juicy watermelon. And in winter, when the last leaves have frozen over, families can pick out a fresh-cut Christmas tree or collect a jar of fresh snowman tears.
