The city of Barnstable, Massachusetts, is the largest community in and around Cape Cod. At just over 76 square miles in size, Barnstable has the area to handle its population of 45,000 residents. Barnstable encompasses the high profile areas of Cape Cod such as Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Hyannis Port – the location of the Kennedy Compound as well as the city’s central business district. The Kennedys were not the only ones to frequent this part of Cape Cod; Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Grover Cleveland often spent their summers here as well. With a quick hop onto US-6 heading toward MA-3, residents can make it to Boston in less than 90 minutes. Located east of Mashpee and west of Yarmouth, Barnstable is a great Cape Cod community with beautiful homes.
Part of the charm of Cape Cod are the homes. Some are on large plots of land while others boast views of the water. At Pride, we know how essential it is to have a beautiful lawn to match the lifestyle and look of your home. If you want high-quality lawn care and landscaping services, give Pride a call. We will create a specialized fertilization program to help your grass grow thick and green while ensuring your trees and shrubs are strong. The Cape Cod area is filled with beautiful foliage but even the strongest trees and healthiest grass can be subjected to diseases and insects. When you enlist our services, we will be constantly on the lookout for signs of damage and design the appropriate response. As guests drive up to your home, you want them to admire the landscaping design and there is no better way to keep your property looking healthy than using the trusted lawn care services and landscaping services of Pride.
Barnstable is a beautiful area and was the winner of the All-America City in 2007. Since first being explored at the beginning of the 17th century, Barnstable has welcomed farmers eager to settle down and help the city thrive. Agriculture, fishing and salt helped drive the early economy and by the end of the 19th century, Barnstable was known as a thriving tourist area. It still remains an incredible vacation destination thanks to the plentiful beaches and plentiful outdoor activities. Who wouldn’t want to vacation where three presidents spent their warmer months?
History buffs will find plenty to discover in Barnstable. The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum is dedicated to the life and legacy of the 35th president of the United States. The Cahoon Museum of American Art includes 8 galleries and is located inside a colonial home. On the north side of the city is the Great Marshes which is the largest continuous salt marsh in New England stretching for 3,800 acres. It is a great place to explore the local ecosystem or take a nature walk amid picturesque trees, ponds and wildlife.
While there is plenty to do in the summer months when tourism is high and in the spring and fall when the weather is cool and comforting, Barnstable is subject to snow in the winter. In fact, Barnstable receives about 25 inches of snowfall per year. There are plenty of spots on the Cape where kids can sled and adults can cross-country ski but most of the time folks are concerned about getting in and out of the driveway. Pride has the equipment capable of removing the snow from the driveway. Whether we need a snowplow, snow blower or a shovel for the walkway and porch, you can rely on Pride to get the job done.
