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.
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 some consider the barbecue grill to be the crowning jewel in a perfect yard, the shop also fills floor space with Bull grills and outdoor kitchen accessories.
