When Urban Outfitters took over a suburban Philadelphia nursery a decade ago, you got what you’d expect: Terrain, a store that combines the resources of a specialty nursery with the design-savvy furnishings and relaxed shopping experience of its sister store, Anthropologie.
What’s a weekend without a little shopping? We visited several distinct garden retailers, each with their own take on garden lifestyle. Terrain, the best known of the three, is just outside of the city in Glen Mills, and offers a full range of plants, products and garden services.
The folks who gave us the fashion oases of Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters have done it again. With the opening in April of Terrain, a new home, garden and lifestyle store, they have launched a new signature shopping experience — this time mixing and matching the horticultural world with high fashion for the outdoor room. It's a concept whose time has come.
