It’s springtime in Brooklyn, and adding to the allure of living here is the sight of lush and colorful stoops and yards. Homeowners appreciate that bountiful and well-kept green spaces impart a satisfied peace of mind and also improve the appeal of your neighborhood while elevating your property value by 4 or 5 percent, if not more.
Dragonetti Garden Center at 1875 Ralph Avenue is well aware of this. A family-owned business that’s been operating for more than 50 years and home to Brooklyn’s largest nursery, Dragonetti offers an extensive variety of annuals, shrubs and perennials. Uncertain as to where to begin with your lawn or garden?
The expert staff at Dragonetti will be there to assist you in making the right plant selections. After gathering some information about your site conditions, they will point you in the right direction on what plants will thrive in your garden. The staff will also help advise you on necessary tools required to nurture and cultivate your garden and lawn. To give that welcoming area in front of your home a burst of color, they might suggest adding a vibrant annual such as vinca to your planting bed or container garden. And you can’t go wrong with impatiens, which boast an incandescent array of shades and don’t require a ton of maintenance.
If you’re looking to add some shrubs to your garden, Dragonetti’s expert staff may advise you on the difference between deciduous and evergreen shrubs. Deciduous shrubs lose their foliage during the winter season, while evergreen shrubs hold on to their leaves and remain green throughout the year. Enlisting both creates the perfect combination. Dragonetti Garden Center has in stock hundreds of different types of both shrubs for you to choose from. They’ll also deliver whatever you select from the nursery straight to your home.
If you are looking to create an indoor paradise, Dragonetti Garden Center has you covered. Home to Brooklyn’s largest greenhouse, they carry an array of houseplants from tropical to natives, meeting all of your indoor plant needs.
From plant material, soil amendments, tools, garden décor to expert advice, Dragonetti Garden Center is the one stop source for all your gardening needs. Dragonetti Garden Center will help you keep your dream lawn and garden looking healthy all year long.
