The staff at The Mustard Seed are all Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association-certified professionals driven by a love for everything that grows on the earth. At their garden center facility, they maintain hundreds of plants in several greenhouses and on more than 12 acres of property. Evergreen and deciduous trees, annuals and perennials, and exotic shrubs add color and vibrancy to home landscaping. The center's koi fish are perfect for populating water features or befriending people who never leave the swimming pool. The Mustard Seed also keeps children entertained with a play area and a petting zoo that's home to donkeys and pygmy goats, among other friendly creatures.

Knowing that an attractive garden doesn't always grow itself, The Mustard Seed's landscaping team travels to nearby locations to install completely customized landscaping layouts. The design team specializes in striking a balance between beauty and function with projects such as perennial or water gardens, patios, and decks. The installation team can execute design plans in phases or all at once.

Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants?such as grubs, ants, and grazing neighbors?shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts.

Fall is in the air at Minnetonka Orchards, where a corn maze is just the beginning of the autumnal adventures that await kids and families. After navigating the twists and turns of the maze, guests can wander through the apple orchard to pick a fresh juicy globe or marvel at how weird bugs look. Visitors can also shop for jams, apples, and other farm fare at the barn, or go on a leisurely stroll on one of the walking trails. Kids' entertainment comes by way of the climbable hay mountain, the corn crib slide, and barnyard friends including goats, sheep, and bunnies.

In 1874, English immigrants John and Eliza Ames saddled their percheron draft horses and ventured westward from the Atlantic shore. They settled a plot on the Minnesota countryside and their horses grew strong there, roaming 500 acres of grassy fields. Today, the Ames family continues to care for the breed at Cedar Ridge Arabians, Inc., leading many of their full- and half-arabian horses to class A competitions and earning the Breeder of the Year designation from the Arabian Professional & Amateur Horseman's Association in 2011. In addition to raising horses, the trainers guide riding students with lessons that include tacking, untacking, cooling down, and selecting suitable bedtime stories for each horse.

It's easy to get lost in the moment on Nelson's Apple Farm. Guests can wander through the golden-tinged foliage and breath in the autumnal air while exploring the various fall festivities. Children traipse through the five acres of wildlife preserve, or peer at many different animals in the farm yard, feeding goats from their palms or watching ducks play inspired hockey on the pond. They can pick their own pumpkins and choose from more than 20 different apple varieties from a 20-acre plot of apple trees, and, come winter, guests can track down their perfect Christmas tree from the 12 acres of growing evergreens. On the weekends, customers can also opt for wagon rides around the acreage.

Cal Chadwick opened up Cal's Market & Garden Center in 1961, just down the road from his family home and corn farm. Like a 99-year-old earthworm, Cal felt a deep connection with the land, building a greenhouse and tree and shrub nursery before passing down his business to his daughter, Carina, and her husband, Bryan. Today, avid gardeners, farmers, and amateur horticulturalists work hand-in-hand with the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Cal?s to pick out evergreens, plot vegetable gardens, and plan landscaping projects. With the help of personal shoppers, clients can stock up on hanging baskets, bulbs, and soils for creating a fragrant flowerbed. Cal's also offers personal gardening services, including planting, weeding, designing, and maintaining your plants.
