Instead of exercising at the gym, Jeff Cochran stays fit by competing in races—the vertical kind. The certified arborist and his crew clamber up trees in their leisure time, thereby sharpening their safety skills and prepping their physiques for when they're on the job. Their work sends them to neighborhood lawns for trimming, planting, and tree-removal services, though the botany enthusiasts use the third option only as a last resort.
The staffers both diagnose and treat potentially hazardous branches, pruning away obstructions and detaching diseased boughs. They remain on call 24 hours a day to deal with emergency appointments following storms. Many of their treatments are also preventive: they take measures to conserve trees that stand on active construction sites and erect reliable lightning-protection systems. In the interest of healthy growth, Jeff and company fertilizes and aerates the soil to nourish roots, with regular inspections to ensure that each plant's heart rate is a plucky six beats per year. Every visit is followed by a thorough yard cleanup that clears away debris, sawdust, wood chips, and ruts.

Cedar Hill Farm Paintball Park arms its guests with a gun, an air tank, a face mask, a 200-round hopper, and 500 rounds of splattering ammunition to defend humanity against the sinister forces of boredom. Sporting seven separate courses over 14 acres of park, Cedar Hill can accommodate large-scale battles and special-forces strikes in the Woods, Ambush, or Bunker Hill courses, and anyone looking for high-frequency action can test their trigger fingers on one of the farm’s speedball courses. Because war has no rules, except for a few necessary ones for safety, battle pacing and game types are left up to the players themselves, though Cedar Hill estimates that players can clean out their clips in two or three hours and are happy to suggest favorite scenarios for squads who’ve come up short.
Leave the mowing to the optimally primed lawn transformers that are heavy on power and surprisingly light on explosions and finally show that inefficient neighborhood boy how lawn care is done (typically $40 for a quarter-acre lot). If you're losing beachballs, babies, and venture capital in a backyard nest of weeds, have a three-man crew swim through the shrubbery pruning, bed cleaning, and weeding to beautify your outdoor areas ($90/hour). Allow the experts to tuck plants into beds, hang flowering baskets ($20 per piece), or install plants as large as 3 gallons (four-plant minimum, $100 total).
During spring at Jones Orchard, families gather to bound through the territory’s rows of fruit, peeling back leaves to get at the ripest morsels hidden deep within the thicket. Since growing their first peaches more than seven decades ago, the Jones family continues to ripen juicy varieties of peaches, strawberries, and other fruit on their 600-acre farm, eschewing long-distance produce shipping for local distribution, mostly available at farmer’s markets and during the orchard’s pick-your-own fruit season. Inviting families to pick fruit together is one of many ways the Jones family lures visitors to their orchard seasonally—come autumn, the farmers transform the fields into a vast corn maze. Visitors not content to wander the idyllic grounds can enjoy the orchard’s bounty at the Country Café, where matriarch Juanita Jones flavors her fresh pies and preserves with fresh-plucked fruits.
