The verdant displays of flowers, plants, and seasonal, locally grown produce at Gold Coast Landscape & Garden Center form a veritable feast for the senses. Trees, perennials, and annuals from growers such as Overdevest Nurseries, Monrovia, and Endless Summer fill the center’s many planters and pots, sharing space with in-season tomatoes and strawberries. The gardening staff helps visitors to create their own vegetable gardens with these tasty fruits and can even lend their expertise to designing backyard ponds. Inside, a farm market further piques appetites with its selection of steaks, salad dressings, and gourmet cheeses freshly picked from the tree.
The team of horticulturalists at Kirshner Landscapes & Nurseries tends to a lush, 11-acre garden center filled with more than 1000 plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers, in addition to offering at-home landscaping services. Greenhouses and trees shelter the nursery?s plants, which number in the thousands and include such specimens as white butterfly bushes, mountain laurel, and venus flytraps trained to only catch and release. The nursery and garden center also stocks gardening tools, mulch, and outdoor pottery. Staff members are available to consult with clients about which plants are right for their garden or where they should be planted, helping customers create a low-maintenance plan for their gardening needs. As for landscaping services, the team can handle regular maintenance such as trimming and pruning as well as more extensive projects.
Plants and flowers symbolize new life, so it's only fitting that City Planter resides inside a converted old warehouse, transforming what would be a dusty, vacant space into a vibrant gardener's paradise. Inside, the neighborhood nursery's friendly staff members readily share their wisdom and help clients select the perfect house plant for the living room, rose for the garden, and orchid for the dog house.
The green thumbs also encourage customers to stop by with pictures of their space and they will help design a garden sanctuary. If visiting the store isn't possible, staffers will plant your plant in a container and deliver it to your door.
