Knox Nursery, Inc. started in 1962 on the Knox family's porch. Although the family-run nursery has grown to encompass more than 23 acres since then, the second-generation owners haven’t forgotten their humble beginnings, still emphasizing the down-home customer service that made the business what it is today. They and their staff lovingly harnesses the Floridian sunshine to produce plugs and liners, cultivating more than 5,000 plant varieties ranging in size from young ones destined for greenhouses to 4-inchers perfect for landscaping.
At the retail center, staffers stand ready to help green-thumbed shoppers to navigate the selection of annuals and perennials or pick out shrubs to block views of money-filled swimming pools from jealous neighbors. Palms, trees, and vegetables await their chance to fill out gardens or finish landscapes.
Lined with 15,000 square feet of jumpable surfaces, Rebounderz Orlando provides a haven for anyone older than 2 to literally bounce off the walls. The site’s expansive dodge-ball arena is covered both horizontally and vertically by canvas supported by coiled springs, absorbing the shock of players as they duck incoming shots from their opponents and leap into the air. Elsewhere, in the trampoline basketball court, murals of screaming fans encourage b-ballers to dunk like Jordan while wearing wedding dresses like Rodman. A foam pit cushioned by state-of-the-art pieces flanks a third arena, where jumpers can safely spring from the trampoline and land safely inside the padded trench. No matter where participants choose to play, Rebounderz Orlando ensures safety by enforcing a rigid list of rules and requiring children under five years old to wear helmets at all times.

Holly heads a staff of professionals that supervise all of Pawsh's day-to-day activities, ranging from exercise-packed daycare services to upscale boarding options, some of which feature password-protected webcams so traveling owners can peek in on their canine or kitty. Meanwhile, on the spa side of Pawsh, professionally trained groomers spruce up shaggy styles, and outside the facility, Pawsh employees jet off to clients' houses for in-home sitting of more exotic pets, such as horses, birds, and freeloading cousins.
