Big Tex Tree Nurseries grows and maintains an assortment of trees and plants ready to be picked out, delivered, and plopped in soil. The knowledgeable staff helps customers find outdoor furnishings ranging from 15-gallon trees (starting at $19.99) to box trees (starting at $79.99), ideal for creating natural shade or supporting one-half of a hammock. Lawn-lovers can also accent their yards with smaller ornaments such as shrubs (starting at $1.99) and flowers (starting at $1.99). Patrons trying to decorate their yard can work with Big Tex's staff to design an aesthetically pleasing pattern, and for an additional fee (varies upon location), customers can have their purchases delivered and planted in their yard or their neighbor's pool.

Creating a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes. A kid-friendly staff maintains manes while ensuring safety—which is of paramount concern—by providing chairs especially designed for miniature adults. During the cut, melted crayons and various knickknacks are snipped away from tussled noodle nests, leaving hairs as fresh as the day they were born. While the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of activities and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.
