Haegele Nursery and Garden Center first sprouted in 1986 and continues to spread flower-powered goodwill through its collection of landscaping and gardening goods. Brush-lovers can select from a host of perennials ,sold in quarts ($4.95+) or gallons ($7.95+), such as the delicate balloon flower or the antistress scented lavender. One-gallon greeneries, such as the pine-like juniper shrub, give character to sparse lawns and add buffers between window-cooling pies and pesky neighborhood kids ($6.95–$14.95). For a total lawn makeover, garden-dreamers can also peruse nine different types of bulk decorative rocks ($2.75+/50 lbs.), ranging from bright lava rocks to more diminutive pea rocks, which provide a charming green color and a never-spoiling ability to add heartiness to soups.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for special events, which include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing.
