Meet the Staff

Have you ever gone to your favorite home improvement store or super center for plants or other gardening products only to be greatly disappointed by the selection and service? The plants look like they are on their way to the great garden in the sky. What’s even worse is when the sales associates don’t know much about the products they are selling, or don’t take the time to understand your unique landscaping needs. The whole experience just makes you want to run right out the door.

Attention to detail and personalized customer service is what sets Colonial Classics apart from other lawn and garden retailers in the Tri-State, and has for over 60 years. Another thing that makes us unique is that all of our landscaping designers, horticulturists, Master Gardeners, nurserymen and nurserywomen are highly trained and experienced in what they do. The members of our team realize that when they know more about your needs, they can meet and exceed your expectations. That’s why our staff is committed to your satisfaction every time. Our slogan for decades has been, “Where the staff can tell how to use what we sell.”

Our management team invites you to contact them for additional assistance.
