Our original business name was Shademakers Landscape and Design est.. 1991. We grew from a design and planting operation to a full service landscape operation. Our services range from planting and maintenance to pavers patios , driveways and retaining walls. We have established a reputation for quality that is unsurpassed. In the spring of 2006 we finally moved our little store out of the old " milk house". ( Yes we used to operate out of a 10'x12' milk storage house from the old dairy farm) We now have a larger but still cozy Garden Store built with the old farm feel which is truly unique. We're well stocked with everything you need for the garden and gifts and decor that will make you smile. No mater what the season, its more than just your run of the mill garden center. In the fall of 2005 we were approached by Bill Hooven of Hooven's Greenhouse. After 40+ years, Bill retired But didn't want to leave his customers unsatisfied. Being long time business acquaintances, we decided to make an alliance with Bill. The result: We now operate a 40' x 60' retail green house. It has been such a hit that we'll need to build at least one more greenhouse as soon as we can!Sometimes you just need a little advice, maybe you couldn't make it in to see us during business hours and you have a simple question to ask just visit our website www.shademakersinc.com and check out the Gardening Tips page. Our staff has a huge amount of information to share with you, and we are glad to let you soak it up at your convenience. One of the best way to enjoy your garden is to share it with wildlife. Shademakers can help you see more butterflies and hummingbirds than you ever thought possible in your own lawn. We can even show you how to raise butterflies from egg to adult, ready to migrate south. In 1894 our Great - Great Uncle Rolla Drake and his wife Orie built the farm that we now call home. Over the years some things have changed but most have stayed the same. In the big barn, you Can still see contraptions that were used to work the land in generations past. Bring the Kids by to visit the goats and lightnin' the cat while you are here.We'll be glad to show you some of the history that we're so proud of.
