What accomplishment/s are you most proud of?
We are a family owned business. We purchased Riedel’s 25 years ago during a drought and began with only 3 employees. Our business has continued to grow every year. Over the years our customers have come to know that they can come to us with any questions they may have regarding their lawn and garden. We also take pride in providing the highest quality products and services.
What services and/or products do you offer?
We are a retail garden center that sells trees, shrubs, nursery stock, vegetables, fertilizers, decorative pots, fountains…everything for your gardening needs. We also do commercial and residential landscaping, sprinkler irrigation, tree and shrub trimming, lawn maintenance and snow removal. We offer free estimates on landscape drawings.
What do you want the business community to know about your business?
Our location is a little out of the way but we’re worth driving for. We are not a large box office store. We care about our customers and we continue to care for them after the sale. Our customers are very loyal.
Are there any special happenings, sales or advertisements during your featured month?
March starts out a little slow because the temperatures are still pretty chilly. It’s a good time to start applying pre-emergent herbicides to your lawn to prevent the germination of weed seeds. In April when the weather starts warming up our garden center starts filling up with all our inventory. Watch for our Annual Open House and Geranium Jubilee.
What do you value most about your Chamber Membership?
We’re very appreciative of what the Chamber does for our local businesses. They promote shopping locally and they reach out to us to see if there is anything they can help us with.
