About Gardens on the Go

Welcome to Gardens on the Go, where each container garden design is a living work of art installed and delivered to your home or business.
Our motto is, “If you have a spot for a pot, you have room for a garden.”
One of the most valuable commodities in our lives these days is …. time. It’s something not a lot of people have. One of the things that we do is take a small space, a patio, porch,  entrance way, etc… and create an inviting, colorful nook in your home.
How do we do that? 
We believe traditional gardens provide structure to your outdoor room, which would be your yard. Much like dressing up your indoor space with furniture you’ll need to accessorize it to pull the space together. That is what container gardens do. They are accessories to enhance the traditional garden that can be changed out seasonally from spring to summer to fall, and even the holidays through the winter. 
When compared with traditional gardening containers have many benefits. They are easier to maintain and they conserve more water. 
What’s the process?
We’ll consult with you to get an an idea what it is you are looking for in a container garden. We’ll help you select the appropriate plants for your location. One that is accomplished, we’ll come up with a design concept for your space. From there we will implement the design. Once completed, we’ll give you instructions on how to care for your new masterpiece.
Always remember, like we stated earlier “If you have a spot for a pot, you have room for a garden.
