About Us

To us it seems unforgivable the casual way in which horticultural advice is dispensed. We take painstaking efforts to assure that what we recommend is accurate and reliable. That is why so many customers have come to trust us for so long. Classic Gardens has worked hard to deserve its reputation as a dependable source for information. Along with that information we, as any business would, hope to make sales.

To help further with the flow of information, Classic Gardens provides several other services. One is this web site in which information gets updated periodically. In 1995 Classic Gardens started its own live call in radio program Saturday mornings at 7:00 AM on News talk 960 AM WERC. In 2000, Classic Gardens teamed up with Ken Lass and NBC 13 to bring you gardening spots and later with Brooke Smith. Mike’s radio show can be heard on WERC 105.5FM Saturdays, 8:00 – 9:00 am.

Classic Gardens also provides award winning residential landscaping. Landscaping jobs range from as little as $1,500 up to $60,000 but with the average job running in the $3500 to $5500 range. Most of our work is done for home owners with older homes and older landscaping. We remove the old overgrown shrubs from in front of the house and put in an appropriate landscape that when mature, will not be overgrown.

Classic Gardens newest venture has been into lawn care. After years and years of giving out advice on how to “do it yourself” lawncare, the next logical step was to provide the service for those who did not want to do it themselves. The service, started in 1997, has been very successful and we look forward to continuing to grow this segment of our business. The lawn care service as well as the landscape provides service in Jefferson, Shelby and St. Clair counties.

We hope that you will come to visit our location in Centerpoint and that someday in the future you will favor us with your business. At Classic Gardens you will find a full scale, year around garden center. Some of the departments we have include a large selection of perennials, herbs and annuals. Also there are acres of trees and shrubs to choose from. We have lots of native plant material and include a section of our garden center to attract birds, hummingbirds and butterflies. In our greenhouses you will find many lovely hanging baskets and flowers to choose from. I almost forgot to tell you about all the statuary and concrete items that we have. You will find a knowledgeable and dedicated staff at Classic Gardens ready and eager to serve you.

We hope you come to visit us soon.
