Check Out Our New Fountains

 IMG_6580  IMG_6570 
Water fountains are a great way to create a relaxing oasis in your backyard. They can also be used as an attractive focal point. We have received some new fountains that can help turn that special spot in your garden into a forest retreat. Or, if you have a flair for the modern, try a granite wall fountain called ‘The Wave’ because of the wave pattern it makes as the water rolls down the slate which can be enjoyed from all four sides.  

Other New Features This Week

This time of year we are always getting in new and exciting things for the garden. At the end of last week, received some slate planters that have a new contemporary look but that could also be used in a more traditional setting. We also got in some new benches including two slate ones and a solid natural jade bench.

There is substantial weight to these benches which make them ideal for your garden since you won’t have to worry about them being unsteady or falling over. And the good news is we offer free delivery in the area so you won’t have to worry about how to get them home either!

Perfect Weather for Relaxing Outside


After a long day, sitting outside and enjoying your garden is one of the best ways to relax and wind down. We recently got in these classic retro chairs in bright primary colors that are comfortable and stylish. We currently have them in aqua, red, yellow, and lime. If you need a specific color, let us know and we can bring that in for you. In the featured image, we have the aqua colored classic retro chairs combined with earthenware blue pots filled with geraniums and a sago palm. A beautiful blue elephant side table between the chairs is holding a candle and a cup of coffee. Since Easter is almost here, we also have a wide variety of metal art with bunnies and Easter eggs scattered throughout the nursery. 

Lightweight Containers


If you need some containers that aren’t heavy but have a very solid look to them, try some of our resin and fiberglass pots. Right now we have an assortment of sizes and shapes in different colors. The white pots featured in the image only look like they weigh a ton, but are really light and easy to carry. This same style also comes in black. We also have other resin and fiberglass containers that are made to look like concrete, while others look like glazed pots. Also featured in this image is some light weight metal wall art and a butterfly to liven up your garden and bring it all together.

Weeping Cherry Trees

Weeping Cherry trees are a wonderful addition to any garden planted in the ground or left in a container. They are covered with small blooms along the branches that weep over and practically touch the ground. The cascading growth habit contrasts with other trees making it an interesting ornamental throughout the year.

Japanese Maples Leafing Out

When Japanese Maples first start to leaf out in early Spring, they have striking foliage color in shades of red, orange, yellow, and green depending on the variety. Their colors along with their elegant growth pattern make Japanese Maples a must for any shade garden or understory tree. Right now, we have a wonderful selection in all shapes, sizes and varieties.

Sweetness in the Air

Sweetness in the Air

IMG_6000 IMG_6001
The walkway in our nursery right now is filled with the sweet aroma of Gardenias and Evergreen Clematis. These are two early Spring bloomers that are sure to delight anyone who plants them close to a doorway or a walkway where they catch their sweet fragrance. The Evergreen Clematis is a vine with tiny star like clusters and a long dark green leaf that stays all year round unlike other Clematis which die back in the winter. Gardenias are also an evergreen and do very well in pots with protection from the afternoon sun. Both the Evergreen Clematis and Gardenia have white flowers which make them a great choice for moon gardens.
