Ready, Set, Grow!

Welcome to Garden Days!  For the past 5 years we have teamed up with the Home Builders Association of Saginaw to occupy a large space inside their Home & Garden Show at the SVSU Ryder Center.  Garden Days was created as a way to share our enthusiasm and passion for all things landscaping and gardening.


Within the Garden Day area you’ll find our member’s booths showcasing the latest in landscape trends and new products.  The highlight of our show is the large landscaped display gardens that are professionally installed with generous donation of labor and materials from our members.  This year’s gardens features over $70,000 worth of materials and labor…It’s truly a must see!  Check out the info below to see a sample of the garden we’re creating.
