We Design
Whether you know exactly what blinds, shades, shutters or drapes you want, have the spark of an idea or are just not sure what to do, your 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant will guide you through the process with expert advice to help you make the perfect choice for you.

It’s not just about using a tape measure but what part of the window you’re measuring. Your 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant will professionally measure to ensure your window treatments are custom-made to fit.

We Install

Our farm market in Guilford is open year-round with one or more of our crops available almost every month of the year. Our "big red apple" is a landmark known to many from near and far.

GreenView has introduced a new, easier, and efficient product to care for your lawn. If you're sick of wrestling out the old spreader each spring and struggling with big heavy bags of fertilizer that are more product than you need for your lawn - GreenView's new Ready2Go Spreader™ (or R2G) is a right-sized, timesaving alternative.

The "R2G" is fertilizer with an integrated spreader that is lightweight, handheld and battery-powered. No need to calibrate it; no worry of where to store it. You get started at the flip of a switch. It is refillable, and reusable for up to 15 application per set of batteries (which can be replaced!) If you're one of those that use a hand-cranked spreader for fertilizer application, check out the ease and power of the new Ready2Go Spreader.
