Gardens of Greenville

Real Estate Agent with ShellTree Realtors

Gardening is one of favorite pastime of homeowners in Greenville. However, it is not without some challenges. The soil in Greenville area is mostly red-clay, and only well-established gardens can boast black topsoil accumulated from years of gardening. Beware also of a few frost days with the last one to be expected mid-April.

Apart from big box nursery sections in stores such as Walmart, Lowe’s and Home Depot there are quite a few local nurseries. Those nurseries offer not only top quality plants but also excellent service and professional advice how to select right plants for your garden and how to make sure they will flourish for years to come.
