Crocker Blend Grass Seed
Cape Cod is a challenging area to grow a lawn, so early on we decided to blend the best seed combinations for you to be successful.
Crocker’s Cape Cod Mix is blended for us, with a higher perennial rye fescue blend and 20% blue grass. Several of the grasses in the mix are endophydic (which means they excrete an enzyme in the crown of the plant that repel insects--bill bugs, chinch bugs, grubs don’t like it).
Pro Tall Fescue mix is fine bladed, good turf quality that is very drought resistant. Mature plants can have roots 4ft deep! This blend is excellent for high traffic areas or athletic use.
Pro Low Maintenance blend is primarily hard fescue or sheep fescue. This will take sun or shade and only grows about 4-6” high, so it needs very little mowing. This makes it a great blend for seasonal properties.

Holland Grills and Grill Dome
Throughout the year we have grill demonstrations featuring these two amazing grills- the Holland Grill and the Grill Dome. We show you how delicious your food can be when cooked on either of these grills. Here is a little information on both of them.
The Holland Grill is not an ordinary gas grill. Made right here in the USA, we cook food better and do it more easily than any gas BBQ grill made. If you are looking for a gas grill that is easy to use and grills the most tender, juicy food you'll ever taste, you're looking for a Holland Grill. Click here for more information about the Holland Grill
The Grill Dome is different, and far superior to a traditional metal charcoal grill. This Kamado style grill is made of thick walls of ceramic that are insulating, where as metal conducts heat and allows heat to escape the grill. The thick walls of the Grill Dome trap the heat so less energy is needed to cook the food, as heat stays in the dome and doesn’t escape out. This also creates a very safe grill, because most of the time the outside of the grill won’t burn your skin if you touch it, since the heat is not conducted. This grill is designed to reduce the amount of flare-ups as the fat is being absorbed into the ceramic walls and is burned up in the air-tight dome. Click here for more information about the grill dome.
We carry mulch, loam and manure by the yard which we can load on your truck, or we can deliver it (2 yard minimum, 8 yard maximum per delivery). If you have 20 gallon and 30 gallon containers, we will also fill those up for you, if you don't have a truck or only need a small amount.
Pine Bark Mulch - A fine, dark brown color.
Hemlock Mulch - A lighter, slightly reddish brown color.
Screened Loam - This is off-Cape, clay-based loam, perfect to plant in.
Horse Manure - Local horse manure from a farm that uses wood chips for bedding and high quality oats for feed, no hay or straw, so no weed seeds! (Sold out for Spring 2022)
