Example of the architecture to expect with
our new garden center!

For the last three years, we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes researching new greenhouse structuresto better serve our customers. After countless hours of preparation, we’re excited to announce a complete rebuild of our greenhouses and sales office at Vander Giessen Nursery!

If you’ve driven past the nursery in the last week, you may have noticed some changes starting to take shape as we’ve done initial work on this project. Today, we’re demolishing our old, outdated and deteriorating greenhouses and sales office to make way for a new glass greenhouse structure to be completed by next spring. While our existing greenhouses have served us well over the last 75 years, they simply have come to the end of their useful life. Some of the benefits we look forward to sharing with you in our new garden center include:

  • Wider aisles to allow for easier shopping 
  • Better ventilation for the health of plants and comfort of shoppers 
  • More than three times the space for hard goods, enabling us to provide better selection of fertilizers, pottery, soils and garden care products 
  • New houseplants department for gardeners that want indoor color year-round 
  • New landscape irrigation department to assist you in all your irrigation needs 
  • Complete handicap accessibility for elderly or disabled customers 
  • Dual checkout for improved traffic flow during peak season 

Throughout the duration of construction, we are open for business as usual. Our temporary sales office can be found across the street from the nursery in Greenhouse 3.

As we begin our reconstruction project, we want to express our gratitude for your business–we’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to serve you in our old facilities for the last 75 years and look forward to better serving you in our new garden center very soon!
