Best of Philly

2013 Garden Store for People with Patios

Urban Jungle

Although there are enough plants in this massive garage-like store to landscape a suburban McMansion, owner Curtis Alexander excels at squeezing greenery into the tightest of city spaces. (Vertical wall planters teeming with flowers and ferns are a specialty.) There are also Service and Help galore, like workshops on planting show-stopping terrariums and envy-inducing window boxes and, for the less DIY-inclined, a full menu of landscaping options.
