We got a beautiful landscape design from Jeff for the front of our house.  We got detailed instructions how to do it ourselves and they have everything we need right there!  And I love their selection of trees too.

Best place ever for plants.  The plants and shrubs that I have bought here has lasted for years and I’m not a green thumb.  They even helped me design my landscape.

We worked with MONICA and she was absolutely wonderful to work with … knowledgeable, caring, customer focused and a genuinely sweet person. We also worked with NANCY … very helpful, patient, took time to show us many trees and very kind!  We love our plants.  Dayton’s is a great place to shop and have fun!
