September – Aaron Preston’s Garden Center – 1640 NYS Rt. 104

Sept Photo Preston Garden CtrAaron Preston, owner of Preston’s Garden Center, states that he has been in this business for at least thirty years. Preston says “My father did it, my grandfather did it”. Preston says I am the third generation and my son Jesse is the fourth generation of landscapers in the Ontario area.

Preston’s Garden Center and Aaron Preston Landscaping are companion businesses working out of the same building. Aaron Preston says in our landscaping business “We do sidewalks, patios, retaining walls, new lawn installations.”

Aaron Preston says “About three years ago I put an offer on this place and it was accepted. I intended to just keep the business here.” Jesse Preston suggested that we start selling mulch. Aaron says “We started selling bulk products and then my father came by with some plants and Dad says, “ By the way, I know a guy that grows flowers.” The next thing you know, we have all this stuff and that is truly how it happened. Our inventory keeps changing. We will try different products and if they do not work out we will stop selling them. We have been here three years now and it is going OK.”

“We operate the greenhouses from February until early May. This gives us a nice head start on the flowers we grow” says Aaron. Preston’s Garden Center does sell all of the garden and pool supplies that anyone could want.

Aaron says “The sheds help us to provide even more items for sale to clients. The sheds are built by Mennonites and brought here. We just get a small commission from the sale of a shed. If you purchase a shed from us, you will make the check out to the Mennonites.”

Aaron states, “In the future we will expand to contractor supplies and gift items. We already have a good relationship with many local landscapers. The community is a great resource for us in terms of what items we should stock. We also keep a list of items folks want but we do not have on hand. We will try to grow the items and if we cannot grow them, we will get it in one way or another.” Jesse wants to “thank the people of the town for coming in and buying things. We really appreciated their business.” Renee says “We are your home town garden store. The people in the community have really embraced this store. That has been really rewarding for us. People like to come here to look around.” Speaking of looking around, you should because there is a great deal to see.

Preston’s Garden Center has three full time and four part time employees. Aaron Preston Landscaping has six full time employees.
