At Gardens of Babylon, discerning gardeners and green green-thumbs can frolic among a wide selection of eye-catching florae that beautify any garden, apartment, or Star Destroyer escape pod. With 10,000 square feet dedicated to shrubs, trees, houseplants, perennials, annuals, and giant flesh-yearning venus flytraps, irascible Scottish groundskeepers can pick up unique coneflower varieties ($9.99), shrub rose ($20), fig tree ($19.99), or black Spanish grape vine ($19.99). Otherwise, ward off pesky buzz bugs and snake-oil salesmen with Amazon Lights mosquito incense cones ($13.99) with andiroba. Additionally, a helpful and knowledgeable staff helps turn garden concepts into leafy reality with demonstration areas that provide invaluable tips for transforming homes into self-sustaining bio-domes, as well as tutorials that focus on mulching, composting, and fortified-trench digging at home.
The addition of houseplants or hanging baskets of flowers does more than just transform the aesthetic setting of a room—some scientists argue that plants can improve health. From the standoffish paeonia to the enthusiastic, misunderstood barrel cactus, there’s a plant to match everyone's personality.

Gardens of Babylon
Even if you've never been to Gardens of Babylon, you've probably seen some of their work—their landscape and design team was commissioned for projects at high-profile locations including Vanderbilt University and the Bicentennial Mall. It's no surprise then that the company also has a formidable garden center, an 18,000 square-foot space where people can use Inspiration Stations and consult with staff at demo areas to glean ideas for their own landscaping projects. The entire inventory is devoted to sustainable landscaping, and includes only all-natural, non-toxic, organic, and non-GMO supplies, as well as eco-conscious elements such as rain barrels.
