Locally owned and operated for 38 years, Pine Hollow Nurseries attracts green thumbs with a seasonal selection of locally grown plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers, as well as gardening and landscaping necessities.

For more than three decades, Beaver Tree & Lawn Service’s fertilizer programs, pest control, and landscaping services have defended verdant turf and topiary against feeble growth and invasive critters. Keep backyard grasslands thriving and lawn-mower ownership justified with a fertilization procedure ($50) that employs one of eight seasonally targeted lawn applications or spray down a front yard’s foundation trees with insecticide ($55) to ward off shrub-bungling bugs through summertime. A perimeter pest control ($50) staves off sieges from ants, crickets, and miniaturized Achaeans, and a grub-control ($100) or flea-and-tick ($100) yard treatment targets specific species of creepy-crawly.
A native of Augusta County who knows its wildlife and terrain, Dwight Wood recreates a simpler time—a time when cowboys rode horses up the mountain trails, ate steaks seared by the campfire, and jumped into a hot tub before going to bed. Granted, that last part is only available if you stay overnight at the bunkhouse, but the Wood family's horseback-riding trips are otherwise historically authentic.
Riders meet at 9 a.m. on the ranch, where they're paired up with a trusty and well-trained steed before trotting out into the wilderness of George Washington National Forest. Dwight guides the trip over water, up slight inclines, and past breathtaking views of mountain country, leading the pack to some of the highest points in the region without the help of cliff-side escalators. He also keeps each trip small in order to better answer questions and provide a personalized experience for each rider. Guests can saddle up for a half-day, full-day, or overnight excursion, and look forward to a cowboy-style supper on longer trips.
