This fall, families can venture into the great-smelling outdoors and attend Livesay's Pumpkins & Fall Fun weekend attraction. A hayride escorts guests to the pumpkin patch to select an ideal future porch guard. The Pumpkin Playland offers a variety of activities, from a hay-bale maze to pumpkin bowling with a real pumpkin. Customers can visit the farm market to stock up on juicy apples, locally grown veggies, jams, salsas, and much more (prices range from $1 to $18).
In 2000, Keith Smith created a pond for his backyard. The plip-plop of the water was invigorating and his new water-gardening hobby was a pleasure, so he decided to share both with the world. Since then, his company Backyard Depot has grown from a local operation specializing in decorative water features to a full-service landscaping business capable of grooming residential and commercial yards with a wide array of services. After overhauling lawns with a full mowing and weeding, Keith’s staff can also build landscape features such as an outdoor fireplace or a tall fence to keep feral Santa Clauses from taking up residence.
