This is really a lovely spot. Kind, helpful people, beautiful plants. They carry a nice variety of annuals and perennials, herbs & veggies, small decorative pots, & house plants. They do periodic workshops as well. I believe they also carry dirt, mulch, and all that jazz, but I have not used them for those services. The setting is beautiful, with a pond with ducks, and a pen with goats and alpacas and chickens. They even gave my daughter a small bag of animal crackers to feed to the goats and alpacas, which made her day. We come every spring.

While smaller than some area garden shops, the selection here has been getting better as of late, particularly for pollinator-friendly plants - and prices are pretty good. The Alpacas, chickens, and goats are a big bonus. Also has a decent selection of pots.

I get the best service here and an amazing selection. For the serious Gardner, this is a magical place. I'd like to see better information on the plants RE: care, optimal growing condition and origin. Best here are the shade garden varieties

We have been coming here for years and they only keep getting better. Great for the whole family to join, as the kids will love pulling the carts and feeding the goats! I highly recommend their pine straw, which they will deliver to your house. It has such a rich color and is never full of junk like Lowe’s or Home Depot. the color lasts all season and requires almost no patch fill.

Nice place, with friendly staff and a great atmosphere. It is a bit small in terms of total inventory, but still a great experience. Compared to the run of the mill Lowe's/Home Depot, it is awesome.

For Garden’s Sake is a wonderful place to buy plants. The staff is knowledgeable and the stock is of superb quality. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to find plants that will last longer than ones you would buy at a big box store!

I Just picked up a magnificent 4-5 ft fiddle leaf fig plant that looks gorgeous in my home. It was a very reasonable price too. 🤗

Stopped here during a girls' weekend and it was well worth it. The property is gorgeous, well maintained, organized, and clean. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They have a great selection of plants and a decent selection of small planters. Excited to come back on our next girls' weekend.

Working on landscaping for our yard with For Garden's Sake was a lovely experience. They are creative, thoughtful, and flexible in creating designs and nothing but professional in terms of installation. They were great at finding options that we loved to create the yard that was right for our family. Will definitely be using them again in the future.

We recently worked with FGS on creating and implementing a landscaping design for our house. Everything was an incredibly positive experience. We were able to get a consultation within a reasonable time. Doug came out and talked through our wants and vision. He created a beautiful plan and also helped group the projects to stay within our budget while also creating a tiered plan for future expansion. The team that installed was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We'd highly recommend FGS!

FGS was a pleasure to work with. They were professional, timely, considerate and very communicative. Their landscaping was beautiful, and they really seemed to take alot of care and pride in their work. We've worked with other landscapers and they are a cut above!

For Garden's Sake was great to work with! They did a major clean up in my yard as well as installing edging, steps and some plants. Everyone involved from start to finish was knowledgeable and easy to work with. I was very pleased with the end product and look forward to working with them again.

I could not have been more pleased. First, I was impressed by the questions that our designer asked-- including how much time we would have to maintain the yard. Second, by his attention to finding plants that fit the allotted space, and paying close attention to factors such as shade, water, and deer. Third, by their willingness to work with me regarding what they would plant and what I might do myself. I just can't say enough good things. FGS was a pleasure to work with.
