Within the sunny shelter of a sprawling greenhouse, clusters of potted perennials and annuals flourish beneath hundreds of hanging flowers. Seasoned growers have nurtured these buds into bloom in the Fox Valley climate, which means plants are already acclimated to the weather, growing environment, and particularly snarky bumblebee gossip of the local area.
To help customers navigate the vast stock, staff enhance the plant displays with growing tips. If budding green thumbs require additional guidance, growers on staff happily hunt down plants and flowers suited for their particular plot.
After laying a weather-resistant brick patio, Lowney’s Landscaping and Garden Center’s landscapers finish it off with a stone retaining wall sprouting with perennials and leafy shrubs. They manage the whole project, from design to installation, creating an artful appearance that can increase a home's value. In addition to executing everything from pruning bushes and cutting grass to seeding lawns—services they've been providing for more than 15 years—they illuminate their clients' beautiful residential and commercial properties with low-voltage, energy-efficient lighting systems. Even in winter, they strive to keep landscapes in great shape with snowplowing, salting services, and weight-loss programs for snowmen. The garden center is a place for equally passionate gardeners and novice green thumbs to wade through small blueberry plants, evergreens, tropicals, and a wide assortment of gardening materials.
