sat in the garden,
I indolently reading…
We had the best display
of flowers yet seen—
wall flowers in profusion, columbines, phlox, and …huge scarlet poppies.”

A Unique Retail Garden Center and
Our retail garden center has a beautiful selection of plants for
you to choose from. You will notice that each plant receives
personal attention and we are always on the lookout for the unusual
specimen, and will help you find the special plant you want. Our
selection of garden accessories is different from the rest, and we
hope you'll find the perfect compliment to your landscape--perhaps
an arbor, bird bath, or a garden sculpture.
A Hidden New Jersey Gem

Center. We love what we do, and so will you.
Alexander J. MacKenn
Sr. started his landscape business in 1928, often using a team of
oxen to accomplish a job. Constantly evolving and responding
to the needs of the community, Alex and his wife Mabel added the
retail shop in 1958. After getting a degree in Landscape
Design & Horticulture, Alex Jr. started designing and running crews
in 1962, and he and his father worked together for at least 20 busy
years. Then the third generation came in. In 1990, Brad,
now a Certified Landscape Architect, came on full time, and then
Jodie started in 1992. (With a totally unrelated degree, but a
love of plants and spreading the organic gardening word). The
business truly is ‘a labor of love’ for this family.
