Welcome to Dearness Gardens Garden Center & Landscaping Services

Beautify your property with trees, shrubs, flowers, accessories, and landscaping services from our beautiful garden center in Huntersville, North Carolina, just north of Charlotte. Established in 1995, Dearness Gardens occupies 3 acres on a rustic 1920s farmstead in the heart of downtown Huntersville.  There’s a little something special for everyone who visits us, so plan to spend some time exploring the lush display gardens, stone paths, and soothing water features.  We want your visit to be relaxing,  pleasurable, and memorable–the ultimate shopping experience!  The business was originally opened with the intention of creating a wonderful destination garden center with character and quaint charm… we think we have succeeded admirably, but we will let you be the judge!
