Why Our Garden Center Should Be Your One-Stop-Shop

Whatever your dream backyard looks like, Smitty Lawn And Landscape can help you achieve that with our Garden Center.

Why Our Garden Center Is Your One-Stop-Shop

Save Time

Driving from store to store looking for flowers, fertilizer, trees, shrubs, and other plants is exhausting. Our Garden Center has everything you need to build your dream backyard – all in one place. We not only offer the plants you want to beautify your space, but we also offer things like fruit trees and vegetables for those looking to add some edible delights to their garden. Here are just a few of the many things we carry to help you build your garden.

Annualsannual flowers in a garden

Annuals are plants that must be replanted every year and will not return naturally on their own. They’re great for first-time gardeners who want to dip their toes in the water and see how they like gardening without making a big commitment. These include plants like:

    • Petunia
    • Geranium
    • Marigold
    • Vinca
    • Zinnia
    • Snapdragons
    • Impatiens
    • Begonias

Annuals are easy to grow, add bright colors to your garden, and are even adaptable to things like hanging baskets if you prefer not to plant them in the ground.


Perennials will return year after year without having to be replanted like annuals. However, they come in both short-lived and long-lived varieties. Short-lived perennials will live for about 2 – 3 years. Long-lived perennials can live for 5 or more years. They’re great for those that want a low-maintenance garden and don’t want to go flower shopping year after year. Some popular perennials include:

  • Peony
  • Hosta
  • Black-Eyed Susan
  • Daylily
  • Delphinium
  • Phlox
  • Shasta daisies

Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs can add shade to sunny yards and even increase the curb appeal of your home. You can even use them as an organic fence to add some privacy to your outdoor space. Some trees grow rather quickly and can reach a respectable height in just a few years. Others are known for their flowers and will add beauty and even a lovely fragrance to your yard. Be sure to discuss your goals with a Smitty team member so we can help you choose the perfect tree or shrub!trees and shrubs for sale

We Protect Your Investment

Some nurseries will sell you flowers and shrubs but offer no help if things go wrong in the future. At Smitty’s, we’re pleased to offer plant care programs to help protect your plants from problems down the road. This is especially important for trees and shrubs. These types of plants are a long-term investment in our yards, and when they become diseased or infested with pests, it can feel devastating. You work hard for your money, and when you spend it on a tree, you expect that tree to live for generations. Our plant care program will ensure this happens. Be sure to ask your Smitty team member when purchasing your new tree or shrub!

Our Garden Center Helps With All Manner Of Projects

When you hear the word “garden,” what comes to mind? It’s entirely subjective, and the answer to this question will look different for everyone. Some customers want to add a few plants here and there to an existing garden. Others want to tear up their yard completely and start from square one. No matter how small or large a space you have to work with, we can help you.
