Experience For Garden's Sake

FGS is situated on a beautiful 20-acre site right on the Durham/ Chatham county line.

Our Garden Center boasts 2 ponds brimming with ducks, goats for our guests to feed, and even a solar chicken coop. We offer everything you need to enhance your landscape and garden. We are truly a one stop for plants, trees, landscape design, and lawn maintenance services. So whether you’re looking to plant a single tree or you need help designing and landscaping your residential or commercial property, the professionals at FGS are available to serve you.

The History…

For Garden’s Sake has been North Carolina’s source for locally grown plants and expert knowledge since 1999. FGS was originally started by Chapel Hill resident JoAnn Davis. It is now owned and operated by Scott and Marsha Pearce who have managed the day to day operations since 2010.

We worked with FGS to do a landscape renovation at our home. We could not have been happier!

They were very clear and communicative throughout the process, showed us options for the final plan, and the end result looked spectacular, to the point where we had multiple neighbors come up to us to compliment our yard and landscaping. We are working with them on the back yard next!
