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.

When I downsized and moved to a New community with small lots (0.15 acres) and all the same with the same one tree in the front and back, I chose For Garden’s Sake Because I knew they would make my yard stand out! When Doug came and we were discussing what I wanted, I said I want to walk out here and see LUSH!! From the concept to the plan and the plant selections to the actual work preformed I have been so pleased. Jack came back twice to adjust the slope of the drainage to get it just right! It looks beautiful now and I cannot wait until spring to see it even more beautiful! I get lots of compliments and always pass the information on! Thanks to everyone at FGS!

We recently completed a major landscape project with FGS at our home along a local golf course. We could not be more pleased with the appearance and professional look we now have. Each and every person associated with this project took great pride in their craft and worked tirelessly to see that the end result would be pleasing to all. Goal accomplished. Our compliments to Doug, Jack, Viridian and the entire work crew for a job well designed, planned and executed. We could not be happier!

My favorite garden spot. Thank you for increasing your safety measures since I last shopped there. When I came in April, I felt uncomfortable (employees weren’t masked and there didn’t seem to be many safety precautions in place). Although being outside is low risk, as a physician, I felt worried to come back. Being there again today, I was so pleased to see all of the safety precautions that have been put in place. All staff were masked, signs encouraging distancing, plastic screen at checkout, sanitizer available. I felt so much more comfortable about being there and shopping. Thank you again for taking these measures to protect your customers!

Words can't express how happy and satisfied I am with the quality of work and the results of the project. In fact it turn out better than my expectations. If you want the best in quality For Garden Saks would be highly recommended by me.

Really great place. Food trucks and cold drinks on the Weekends is very nice. Great place for Kids!! My only complaint is that now my wife has completely filled our home up with house plants!!! I think we are up to 50 now!!! Its almost as if the person they have running their Instagram account knows what shes thinking!!!

A great place for family fun and shopping for plants, plant food, garden soil, and mulch. They have a large variety of flowers, herbs, and pots. The pond was wonderful to roam around with kids and the goats and chickens made our kids day! Will visit again for sure.

Great selection. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and willing to provide detailed information. The shed with alcoholic drinks is genius and makes for a fun, relaxing shopping experience that results in more plants than you need. Not that one can have too many plants 😊

What makes For Garden's Sake special are the PEOPLE. They take the time to talk to you and understand what you are looking for. The BIG BOX stores do not give this personal touch. The entire shopping experience is AWESOME!

Hands down my favorite nursery in the area. They are always extremely helpful and willing to go above and beyond. I have been visiting for several years now and love the selection. I recently purchased a Japanese Red Coral Bark Maple for my front yard. They took the time to answer my questions and helped ensure I was making the best decision given the soil/sun conditions. It has also become a fun spot for our 18 month old who loves seeing the animals throughout the property. We also enjoy the new drink shack!

We contracted For Garden Sake to do a major makeover of our front yard. It turned out beautiful! Plus, everyone at FGS was wonderful to work with. I must have worked with 5 different people and each time was a good experience! Besides designing a beautiful landscape the best thing is their ability to communicate! No surprises!

Easy to spend a few hours here, such a lovely spot. Vast selection of beautiful, healthy plants for indoors and out. Fun to watch and/or feed the goats and ducks. Take time to try the refreshing, smooth slush (this is not the syrup Italian ice of your childhood) or grab a hard cider/seltzer at the Potting Shed where you can sit in a shady spot and relax... lots of space so it is easy to social distance!

Such a great spot! Huge selection of plants and very helpful staff. They also have goats and chickens, and a little outdoor bar where you can get a drink and sit outside. Lovely.

Great selection of indoor and outdoor plants, including more hard to find ones. They also have a huge selection of pots. Prices are fair for both places and pots and the staff is friendly.

I held my bridal shower in their Robin's Nest room and it was perfect! Beautiful space and well decorated. Super affordable as well. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a party space.
