Headcover's Unlimited: October's Business Landscape of the Month

Hidden in the historical area of League City is a family business that may be best known on the internet, but maintains a “good neighbor” image.

With majestic oak trees on the property, landscaping a shade garden is a visual treat with textured plants of wisteria, magnolias, ivy, cannas, and azelas. Oleanders, roses and lantana are featured in the sunlit landscaping.

Headcover’s Unlimited grew from a personal experience with cancer. Chemo may be a life saver for cancer patients, but it can be a problem for the patient’s self- image. The business has been serving cancer patients since 1995, making headcovers available to those who have lost their hair through treatments, accidents or unplanned circumstances.
