Dog Days of Summer are Here!

Ugh, we know it's been super hot, but we still have pretty plants for sale!  Or maybe it's time to for some plant stakes or rabbit repellent--we've got you covered there too.  Don't forget Dearness Bucks can be used up until August 31st.  Use them for up to 50% off anything we sell!


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.  Dearness Gardens is locally owned and operated by Kenneth Forster.  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!

Rustic Charm & Friendly Service

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!

When you visit, a friendly staff member will be glad to chat with you and help you find exactly what you're looking for. Make sure to look out for MYRTLE, our resident diva, mascot, and mouse deterrent.  She's been known to walk around the nursery with our customers, and she'll be glad to keep you company while you enjoy the grounds.

Unique Plants and Full Service Design & Installation

We pride ourselves on carrying a variety of interesting and unusual plant materials.  Japanese Maples  and conifers are two of our many specialties.

In addition to unique plants, we have an impressive selection of popular shrubs, annuals, perennials, grasses, herbs, and roses. Don't forget to visit the tree field where you will find an excellent selection of balled & burlapped and container trees.

To complete your outdoor decor, be sure to shop our extensive selection of trellises, arbors, birdbaths, garden statuary, soothing fountains, and fun and funky garden art and decor.

Don't know where to start? A landscape consultation might be the answer.  A member of our landscape department would be glad to visit your home to discuss your ideas, make some creative suggestions about plant varieties and placement, and provide a little inspiration.
