Alice and Bob, owners and founders of Longfellow's Garden Center bring over 25 years of experience and an educated team of associates to assist you in your landscaping design.  Their greenhouse experience and passion for plants keeps them growing and selling quality plants, catering to kids and families, and expanding their business a little every year has been their winning business philosophy.

Longfellow's Garden Center can create landscape designs as individual as you are.  Your home is your refuge and your santuary.  The Landscape should enchance your surroundings.  Some questions that you need to ask yourself when approaching Landscape Design:

*Do you need an area for entertaining?
*Do you need a children's play area?
*Do you need privacy?
*Do you need a spot to garden?
*Do you need a low maintenance yard?
*Do you need to conceal an unsightly view?
*Do you need to enhance a beautiful view?

Landscaping increases the value of your property and improves curb appeal.  It also enhances the beauty of your home without distracting from the architecture.  Landscaping also solves problems in your lawn by helping with Erosion Control, Windbreaks, Screening and Traffic Control.  A good landscape plan can help you avoid costly mistakes, offer long-term planning and create a year-round beauty!

Even though I don't have a garden yet, I love going to Longfellow's to see the latest varieties in flowers, plants and trees. My future garden will be SO much better with the knowledge that every employee has shown me. This is a wonderful family owned business that treats every person that walks in the store like an extended member of the family! Well worth the drive from ANYWHERE!

I always find what I need when I go to Longfellow's. They have an excellent staff that is able to answer my questions and find solutions for problem areas in my landscaping or garden areas. I have also used Longfellow's to find the perfect gift on numerous occasions. Longfellow's is a great, local option that can meet all of your lawn and garden needs.
