In Atlanta for the weekend? Want to check out three fantastic garden shops and a small garden center in between sampling the city’s fantastic restaurant scene and beautiful botanical garden? Even in a short weekend trip, Atlanta doesn’t disappoint. From classic and traditional to artistic and crafts-driven to funky and fun, we’ve chosen three of our favorite garden shops and garden center. In between shopping, take a side-trip to Atlanta’s wonderful botanic garden. By car, it’s possible to visit all in a leisurely weekend of garden shopping.
Located in a gentrifying industrial Westside neighborhood, Garden has a very specific, earthy and contemporary viewpoint. Although the shop is aimed at an urban audience, Matthew Klyn, the landscape architect behind the small store has created a small destination shop for anyone who is drawn to the handmade. The shop has an ‘of the moment’ look complete with a garden of street art blooms on the side of the building and a beautiful steel sign. Dramatic lighting, chalkboard painted and hand illustrated walls, terrariums, pottery and rusted steel create instant visual impact.
