“We have been customers of Hall’s Garden Center for 15+ years. In the last 3 years we have worked with Bob LaHoff on planning our updated landscaping….including a new paver patio we purchased thru Hall’s. Bob’s attention to detail is what we would most like to highlight….listening to our goals and giving input on what shrubs/trees/flowering ornamentals would look best and in what location in our yard…taking into consideration where we have sun and shade…planting guidelines and plant/shrub care details …….. we highly recommend Hall’s Garden Center!”

Berkeley Heights, NJ, January 12, 2012 –Hall’s Garden Center & Florist joined the ranks of the horticulture industry’s top independent garden centers when it was named one of Today’s Garden Center’s Revolutionary 100.

The program, now in its seventh year, surveys garden center owners and managers and culminates in a listing of the 100 most revolutionary garden centers in the nation. It is open to all independent garden centers, large and small, and is based on leadership and innovation, not on size or revenue.

The entrants are ranked according to a point system, and the 100 top entries make the list.


“The garden centers that made this year’s list are an exceptional group of forward-thinking independent retailers who thrived during a tough economy, whi
ch helps their community,” says Today’s Garden Center Editor Carol Miller.“We are proud to call them revolutionary.”

The 2012 Revolutionary 100 Awards program is sponsored by one of the industry’s premier garden center events, The IGC Show.
