Owned by a veterinarian and staffed by a team of experienced equestrians, Providence Equestrian Center provides quality care for horses while teaching riders how to walk, trot, and canter. They do this during group and private lessons scheduled year-round in an 80”x140” covered arena or a 125”x275” outdoor arena. Providence Equestrian Center also hosts birthday parties, corporate events, and family reunions.
Since 1868, the lush land at The Hunter Farm has provided for five generations of the Hunter family. A sprawling lineage of sons, daughters, nieces, and nieces' husbands have weathered the seasons on its plot, giving rise to plump crops and healthy livestock. Throughout the year, they throw the barn doors wide to share their bounty with the community. It begins in the spring, when visitors fill buckets with the farm's ripe strawberries, beloved for their unusual sweetness. In the summer, camping kids learn about farm life firsthand as they milk cows, plant crops, and feed tractors. The pumpkin patch is in full swing come fall, inviting harvest-season visitors to trundle along in hay-filled wagons and pick the most spherical gourds they can find. As the days shorten into winter, the farm welcomes the Cox family, who bring with them a stock of freshly cut fraser firs.
The team members at HJ Earthbound Cleaning provide complete care for homes and offices with interior and exterior primping services. Through its lawn-care-and-maintenance branch, the business offers regular mowing and leaf-blowing services in addition to seasonal clean-up treatments. Cleaning packages are also available to keep overgrowth of dust and grime at a minimum. The cleaning staff can customize its services for specific needs such as move-outs or seasonal-cleaning sessions, and furnishes cleaning supplies so that customers can save their own products for cleaning the cages of pet dust bunnies.
Created by Elizabeth and Edwin Clarkson in 1927, Wing Haven Gardens & Bird Sanctuary has since spawned into three acres of Southern vistas, formal gardens, and woodland areas. The Gardener's Garden Tour sends green thumbs on a self-guided sightsee of eight efflorescent gardens sprawled across two estates. Navigate perennial plots during the entire weekend, leisurely exploring manicured gardens while spotting rare birds and even rarer birds chirping mellifluous Streisand serenades. Two days provides guests with ample time to absorb the arboretum ardor of Japanese maples, banana trees, cherry laurels, compliment-dishing Ents, and plenty of additional flora. With no limit to today's Groupon, you can purchase enough to invite friends, family, and the jealous flock of plastic pink flamingos loitering on your front lawn.
The scent of freshly popped popcorn fills the air as customers carrying complimentary paper bags of the buttery kernels meander through aisles of birding supplies, gardening tools, home décor, and eclectic gifts from around the globe. Eighty employees advise customers on home projects and purchases such as gas and charcoal grills from brands including Big Green Egg and Weber. Before new grills fire up hamburger patties or outstanding parking tickets, the kitchen department's wall of gadgets, serving ware, and party supplies completes any checklist of barbecue necessities. The home-repair and project areas include a Benjamin Moore station with custom paint-blending services to mix up sample colors to find the perfect hue. Outdoors, the garden area encloses a hand-selected assortment of leafy green plants in a natural, garden-like setting alongside birdbaths and fountains. The birding department carries more than 100 different feeders and specialty seed blends to attract tiny hummingbirds or tiny bee-riding knights.
