Robert Gardner grew up in the world of gardening. At the age of 13, he started helping work the fields and sell plants at his family's nursery, becoming the fourth generation of his family to go into the business. Decades later—now at the helm of the family business—Mr. Gardner purchased a property in Chester Springs and created Gardner's Landscape Nursery. Here, he oversees the growing of 100,000 annuals and perennials each year and the stock of home decor and patio furniture that is made in America.
Mr. Gardner and his staff also help patrons design custom outdoor environments, selecting plants, trees, and shrubs that beam with fall colors or thrive in specific conditions. Alternatively, patrons can explore on their own, browsing a glass house with plants and flowers or a 19th-century barn, which houses outdoor furnishings and the ghosts of garden gnomes.
Since its 1987 inception, NaturaLawn of America’s plant-protecting business has spread to more than 66 locations in 23 states, spreading its passion for eco-conscious, organic, and customizable lawn care to thousands upon thousands of acres of yard. Through two distinct lawn-service programs built around pesticide-free and organic greenery care, the grass whisperers promote deep root growth and replenish spent soils with natural infusions of trace elements, controlled-release nutrients, and warm, fatherly advice.
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. Steamy greenhouses and benevolent 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. As for landscaping services, the team can handle regular maintenance such as trimming and pruning as well as more extensive projects.
The certified lawn technicians from Rogers Landscaping LLC care for yards from the grass up to the tallest tree. During weekly visits, they might mow, edge, and weed. Other times you might catch them sealing driveways, erecting landscaping walls, or raking leaves. The team's tree talents range from hauling off deadwood to pruning back low-hanging branches, a practice that allows vehicles to pass freely and giraffes to feed without hunching over like boors.
Main Line Gardens' knowledgeable green thumbs help visitors plan every stage of their landscaping and hardscaping projects, from simple flower and shrub plantings to large-scale redesigns. The garden center's stock of plants, trees, mulch, and stones helps inspire patrons as they plan their new outdoor spaces. Additionally, an array of outdoor pottery, birdbaths, fountains, and garden statues that come to life past midnight add personality and a finishing touch to projects. Main Line Gardens also lends customers extra hands for larger tasks by dispatching expert teams of landscapers upon request.
