More of a DIY guy or gal? You can also find design help at our garden center. We can give you personalized design services based on your knowledge of your yard, photos you bring in, measurements and lighting conditions. We are a garden center in High Point NC, and we have a few expert tips to help you make the most out of this year’s growing season!
Spring Clean Up
Start by cleaning up leaves and debris that remain from the fall and winter months. Dead leaves and vegetation can cause pathogens, mold and rot that can harm your garden. While this rot is a natural function of the garden’s decomposition cycle, you should have it in your compost pile; not on your beautifully maintained garden.
How does your stonework look? If you would like to update or add stonework to your landscape, trust the experts at our garden center to help you create a design perfect for your yard.

You can always visit our garden center to learn more about the best plants to plant in your flower beds, which ones will grow the best in our climate and how to properly care for them.
March, April & May is for Mulching
Spreading mulch not only serves an aesthetic function, but also serves to protect your flower beds from the heat of summer. A layer of mulch also helps suppress weeds while retaining mulch and moderating the soil temperature. But, be careful not to over mulch, as this can cause rot and prevent healthy growth. Need mulching advice? Stop our garden center today!
