Its almost April. I'm already doing some yard work. Its a little early to plant anything yet but the yard is clean. We are thinking about putting in a brick patio and getting rid of the old one.

So where do you guys shop for your outdoor supplies, plants, grills, pool supplies, you name it?

For most things..Home Depot and Lowes...there's not much choice since Chase Pitkin closed... For plants, I try to go to the local farm markets and nurseries...better and healthier selection and people who can actually answer a question about the plant

The garden factory looks good. I HATE going to home depot or lowes. Crappy selection. Horrible customer service.

The Garden Factory is like heaven to gardeners You could spend the entire day there and not see everything !! It is not near enough to me to go there often...and they are a little $$$..But their end of year sales are great..got lots of good bargains. Big Box stores are OK if you get there as they are unloading the plants..before they sit around and get neglected..and you know what you are buying...if you need help with what kind to buy.. research it on the net, as you won't get any help from the from the staff..
