Our Garden Center

A beautiful well-kept, landscaped garden adds value to your home. Crete Garden Center built a new 10,000 square-foot Garden Center where customers can find a variety of bushes, trees, topsoils, bagged and bulk mulch, shrubs, and perennials.

The Nursery

At Crete Garden Center plants are our passion. Visit our large garden center for the finest selection of plants available today. We have container grown along with balled & burlaped plants. We carry a large variety of shrubs, grasses, shade trees, evergreens, both gardener’s favorites and the newest cultivars. Our plants are carefully selected for hardiness for this area, and we are always researching new varieties to add to our inventory. We also offer a complete line of annual hanging baskets and flats along with perennial flowers to put color in your garden from the first signs of spring until late autumn. Don’t see what you are looking for? We are happy to locate and order what you need.

Delivery charges can be estimated at the time of purchase. Why plant it yourself. Crete Garden can do it for you! We offer full planting services for all plants purchased at the nursery. Items planted by us receive top soil as needed, any soil amendments (mushroom compost/peat moss) and a liquid starter fertilizer.


Our fresh, high quality, thick sod is delivered to our yard per order. Order before noon today to have fresh sod ready for pickup tomorrow. Large orders can be delivered to your job site or home for an additional charge. Limited availability during very wet or very hot conditions.

Our confidence in our nursery stock is backed by our guarantees. So long as the buyer has provided a reasonable standard of care and maintenance, any plant that we install carries a one year, 100% guarantee; items planted by the purchaser carry a one year, 50% guarantee.

Plants will be replaced one time, whether installed by the nursery or the purchaser. Plants eligible for replacement should be returned to the nursery so that the cause of the problem may be determined. Receipts must accompany all returns.

While the health and well-being of all our plants is guaranteed at the time of purchase, the above guarantees do not apply to perennials, roses, annual plants and sod.
