This year, Lakeland Yard & Garden Center is celebrating its 40th anniversary of providing plant selections to Flowood and the surrounding areas.

The business does not merely sell plants and expect gardeners to do the rest. They educate their staff through Nurserymen certification programs, thus better enabling them to communicate with customers about growth cycles for plants and the best ways to care for them.

“We put new employees with older, more experienced employees in a one-on-one situation to help them get started. We also encourage them to take nursery certification exams and to take Master Gardener classes,” manager Toby Rogers said.

The 17-acre nursery is interested in the holistic development of its patrons’ lawns and gardens, offering a wide variety of outdoor living products, such as hummingbird feeders, adirondack chairs and rope hammocks.

The company provides customers with insights on how to best pair these furnishings and outdoor hardware with natural life, providing a “Home and Garden Showplace” template on its website for customers to design their landscaping around available shade, plant maintenance and watering systems.

Although the pandemic has prevented such services in recent months, Lakeland Yard & Garden Center hosted events for aspiring and avid gardeners alike to come together and learn more about the world around them and how they can apply that knowledge to their own backyards. —Taylor McKay Hathorn
