The Gardens will focus on providing customers and design clients with a focused selection of specimen plants, trees and garden elements, in an urban setting. “This unique nursery will provide everyone with the same high-end plants, great plant material and interesting garden elements that we offer to our design clients. We also envision this as a space for events, gatherings and workshops.” according to partner and designer, Patrick Henry. Customers can expect to find a selection of large and small specimen trees and shrubs, such as 14’ tall Hinoki Cypress and 20 year old Japanese Maples, to a few select perennials, herbs and native plants.

The Henry | McGalliard Gardens, also referred to as The Gardens, will be located in the historic Paristown Pointe, next to Stoneware Art Factory and across from The Cafe’. “We are excited. In addition to offering unique plant selections not found in typical nurseries, The Gardens will also give us the flexibility to better control the quality throughout all aspects of our larger design projects and installations. We’re also very excited about helping to revitalize this historic corner of Louisville.” according to co-owner Scott McGalliard.
