Where do you go in Clark and Garwood for flowers, grass seed, mulch, tomato plants or anything else that makes your garden — and grass — grow.
The mild winter and warm spring have given all of us a great headstart on yardwork (whether we wanted it or not). As you wandered around the yard, though, you undoubtedly found remnants of Hurricane Irene and our freak October snowstorm. That storm damage makes the to-do list a little longer, but if you've got a go-to garden center full of helpful lawn-care experts and foliage afficianados, then you're halfway to a beautiful lawn. So, as we continue the Patch Readers' Choice series, let us know where you go for expert advice, great products and the tools you need to make your property the best on the block. Cast your votes by 9 a.m. Friday morning, post a comment, let us know why your loyalty keeps "growing" for your favorite place.
