Local Spotlight – Free Landscape Design

If you are anything like me, when spring break hits and we get that first warm day here on Portland, OR, you begin to day dream about summer nights and bbq’s in the back yard.  Well being like me also means your yard need some work.   So what do you do?  You run out to that Big Box store and muster up some DIY projects, tinker with the Weber Grills and take a joy ride on that John Deere, even if your yard doesn’t need a riding lawn mower.   Oh, yes its that time of year!  When honey do lists get longer and nights get shorter.  There’s just something about Spring.

Al’s Garden Center 

Well this year I invite you to actually get some of those DIY projects done and stop waiting for ‘Yard Crashers’ to pick you up at the store.  Don’t you know they only shoot those shows in California?  Bummer Huh!   Well I’ve got something almost as good to tell you about, Al’s Garden Center.   There are three locations around the Portland Metro Area to serve just about everyone, however my favorite is the Sherwood location.  Al’s has everything you need for your yards and gardens from pots to perennials and grills to paver stones.

Free Landscape Consultation

The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Al’s will guide you to your dream yard once and for all.  In fact Al’s offers a free landscape design consultation with a professional landscape designer.  These consultations come in two forms, either 1-3 hour blocks in-store or on location.  This meeting will help you save time money and headaches by helping you avoid costly mistakes.  It’s always good to tackle a project with a plan.  And at Al’s its free!

You wont regret your trip out to an Al’s Garden Center near you!  With acres not square feet of green houses and farm land this isn’t your neighborhood nursery.  Check out their website for tips, inspiration, recipes and their Bloom Magazine.  Al’s Garden Center
