Together, they built The Grounds Guys around their love of freshly cut grass and well-manicured topiaries in 1987 and have expanded ever since. Together, they sharpen their tools every day before heading to people's homes to landscape and maintain exquisite yards.

At Plow Farms, families stroll through a sea of 6-foot–8-foot douglas firs in search of the perfect Christmas tree. Board a sleigh-bell-bedecked hayride that bobs and weaves along paths like a scarecrow playing basketball before reaching a field of potential present shelters. Customers may use a proffered saw to separate tree from earth, or cry "timber" from a safe distance by giving the job to onsite workers. Upon returning to Plow Farms' hub, speedy slicers can refuel with a complimentary bag of popcorn and purchase hot chocolate before perusing trinkets such as holiday-themed penguin statues ($17) and sterling-silver earrings ($22) in the farm's old-barn-bound gift shop. Santa is available for pictures on the weekends, providing an open-air venue for claustrophobic wish lists.
