Technicians at NY Landscape Lighting LLC install sprinklers, erect pet fencing, and purvey low-voltage lighting with professional-grade brass or copper fixtures. Low-voltage lighting casts fewer shadows than its high-voltage counterpart, thereby rendering properties safer and less prone to disappointing surprise parties. The 12- and 24-volt lighting consumes about one third the electricity of high-voltage systems, and also accentuates the shapes and textures of a well-maintained yard. On special occasions, holiday lighting can jazz up a domicile or business with tasteful strands of classic white bulbs. Fencing can keep companion animals safe with a contain-a-pet system that emits an unpleasant tone, a corrective pulse, or a goofy cartoon gag noise mixed with a reggaetón beat. To bolster the beauty of homeowners’ lawns, staffers may also install or maintain sprinkler systems.
Something wicked lurks within the abandoned peach orchard at Depiero's Country Farm. But to discover which petrifying presences lie in wait, intrepid guests must walk through Night-mares Haunted Attraction's unsettlingly named Twisted Maniac Trail. Scares spring from behind every turn, sometimes in the form of special effects, other times in the form of actors donning horrifying getups. At certain points, those scenes may depict intense, blood-soaked frights not recommended for children 10 and under. If the outdoor trail ever gets too freaky, participants of any age can be escorted out quickly by shouting "safety", just like the protagonist does at the anti-climactic conclusion to Friday the 13th.
Sculpting blossoms since 1978, the avid arrangers of Tarrytown lovingly harmonize world-spanning flora found from Holland to Hawaii. A crimson triumvirate of classic courtly love, the 3 Red Roses ($44.95+) ornament formal declarations in a pristine clear vase and ribbon bow tie. Teleflora's Zen gerbera bowl ($49.95+) infuses a classic black vessel with warm, vibrant blooms and reignites the age-old riddle of whether the flowers have been potted or the pot has been flowered. Gift baskets communicate partiality in lasting wicker panniers, with groupings such as the Blooming Garden Basket, a display of backyard habitué bedded amid tumbling ivy leaves ($79.95+).
Blossom Nurseries owner Brady Cullen has a history with plants and flowers that looks good on paper. He served as the head of sales for ML Garden Corporation, after which he earned a degree in horticulture and landscape design from Cornell University. But the vibrant blooms and greenery that Cullen and his team cultivate are more visually impressive than any résumé. Using environmentally friendly growing methods, they transform sparse lawns into lush, aesthetically pleasing outdoor spaces. Customers can also find bagged soils, mulches, and other gardening supplies at the company's Yorktown Heights shop.
