Best Nursery/Greenhouse - 2001
Colors of Spring
Despite the name, this lawn-and-garden business is one for all seasons (except when they close the retail store, January-February).Whether you're looking for annuals, perennials, seasonal flowers, flower pots, potting soil, mulch, cement or stone yard ornaments, wind chimes or flags to fly from your front porch, this friendly neighborhood enterprise owned by Sharon and Tom Brady and John Moore makes an extra effort to help customers find exactly what they're looking for. They're happy to help with advice on what to plant where and when, and how to care for your plants after purchase. Colors of Spring is just big enough to get what you need but not as big as one of those home-improvement chain stores where you get lost and plants are just a sideline. In season, Colors of Spring sells pumpkins, firewood and Christmas trees. In addition to their retail business, they offer commercial and residential landscaping and snow-removal service.
