Best Garden Center

Gertens

Gertens is the IKEA of gardening: an expansive maze the size of an Air Force base. There are acres of trees, with everything from the standard maple to the truly exotic. There's shrubbery, plants, patio furniture, and decorative lawn and garden fixtures. Whether you're on the hunt for materials for a new retaining wall, or simply looking for new flower pots, Gertens has more than 100 acres of wares to choose from. The only thing missing is the meatballs.
