The grass gurus at Spring-Green Lawn Care help usher sprouts into emerald adulthood. Lawns pestered by bugs will find spray-on solace thanks to the three-step insecticide program. Not only will turf taste a sweet summer mist that evicts ants, spiders, fleas, ticks, and Tinkerbells, but a springtime grub-control application will work to reduce their underground colonies as well. The five-step fertilizer and weed-killing program aims to arm lawns against spring and summer weeds through a quintet of sprays and fertilizer spreadings. First, a late-spring or early-summer spritz shields lawns from unsightly crabgrass outbreaks before a sequence of lime and fertilizer treatments strengthens strands and fosters root development. Spring-Green's terrain masters will also help homeowners decide how to best prepare yards for colder months, prescribing fall seedings or hot-chocolate sprinkler systems.
Weed Man turns ordinary lawns into lush outdoor paradises. For the past 40 years, the team's weeded unwanted plants, nourished plants and grass with fertilizers, and aerated lawns to inject a burst of oxygen, a more effective method than lying on the lawn and puffing on each individual grass blade. The technicians keep an eye on the health of yards, recommending treatments such as crabgrass and grub control. And before beginning a new service, the soil's pH is tested, so that the most effective blend of nutrients can be applied.
Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
With a 10,000-square-foot showroom full of fine furnishings, East Wake Furniture gives home havers the opportunity to saturate their living areas with style. The store carries a multitude of brands, including heavy hitters such as Vaughn-Basset, Simmons, and Serta, as well as lesser-known gems. The store plucks its furniture directly off the vine, saving money on price-tag ink by leaving the middleman out of transactions and on food costs by not inviting him to parties. Customers can avail themselves of a broad array of furnishings, including lamps ($29+), coffee tables ($99+), sofas, and children's furniture for foreign-exchange elves.

Established in 2000, Ken's Korny Corn Maze presents an autumn playground where families converge every year for full days of exercise, learning, and fun. As the centerpiece of the property, the 6-acre corn maze snakes visitors through 2.5 miles of trails that take months to design and construct. Burrowed into the stalks are rest areas that provide trekkers with benches and water coolers, and checkpoints track how long groups spend in the maze so they aren't slowed by having to drag cumbersome grandfather clocks behind them. Hasty escapes from the maze's twisting paths leave plenty of time to check out other family-friendly attractions, including an 8,000-square-foot rope maze, a mini-golf course, and hayrides.
