Without plants, there would be no oxygen and nothing to prevent bunnies from discovering that humans taste delicious. Fortify your front yard against carnivorous cottontails with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of plants and landscaping supplies at Lockwood Farms in Stanhope.
A family owned and operated Proven Winners certified garden center, Lockwood Farms provides green-thumbed garden dwellers with three floors of gifts, plants, floral arrangements, and indoor and outdoor décor. Block out overly inquisitive neighbors with a tree or shrub ($19.99+), or accent water-garden lily-pad configurations with low-maintenance aquatic plants ($9.99+). Natural stone is an elegant way to guide backyard foot traffic or build a secret bouldering wall under a workplace desk, and bagged mulch ($4.99+) provides an ideal means of retaining moisture, suppressing weed growth, and guarding your dirt from embarrassing sunburns.
Birds improve gardens by dispersing seeds and providing flowers with a soundtrack other than your auto-tuned signing voice. Give something back to your feathered helpers with a birdbath, feeder, or house from the gift shop. Or, celebrate an engagement or first date with a sensitive and attentively designed floral arrangement. From kitchenware to living-room décor, the store boasts a diverse bounty of indoor and outdoor accouterments, and the friendly gift-shop staff is readily available to aid you in holiday, birthday, or apology shopping.
A family-owned business of 11 years, Lockwood Farms blossoms with an ever-metamorphosing selection of plants and flowers. Owners Randi and Mark bustle around the garden center each day, overseeing the staff and offering assistance and gardening counsel to customers. Their gardens house more than 40 types of vegetables and herbs along with an eclectic mix of flowers, trees, and shrubs. An extensive selection of birdbaths, fountains, and pottery punctuates the grounds, and an onsite three-story gift shop stocks collectibles and decor from designers such as Jim Shore, Heritage Lace, and Willow Tree. The center's florists also snip fresh flowers into custom bouquets for a variety of occasions ranging from anniversary celebrations to birthdays.
