Watching the grass grow may be a boring endeavor, but the team at Weed Man Lawn Care knows that it’s a whole lot better than watching the grass fade away. With this in mind, the crewmembers combat the broadleaf weeds that crowd grass out as well as the grubs and pests that gnaw at its roots. Aeration services supplement weed control, helping grass and its roots absorb oxygen, water, nutrients, and compliments from admiring mailmen.
A network of winding trails and windswept pastures extend over the 18 acres of countryside belonging to Fasco Farms LLC, an equestrian and agricultural facility. Stephanie Williams, the ranch’s owner, specializes in transforming adults and children into sound horseback riders through lessons in the disciplines of English and Western riding as well as Natural Horsemanship clinics. Each clinic helps students advance their saddle work, pick up problem-solving techniques, and learn how to load a trailer. The farm also practices equine massage, which, like sports massage for humans, keeps horses at peak physical shape in preparation for competition or while recovering from a breakup.

When in season, the fields are lush with blackberries and blueberries, which can be picked by visiting humans or bunnies with ladders.
