I live very close to two Maria Garden Centers (strongsville and north royalton). They are both excellent. The planmts are lush and always kept well. They water the plants enough, and you never see those brown leaves like at home depot, lowes, or wal-mart. The best part is the staff, they are EXTREMELY knowlegable about all gardening questions, once again unlike the associate at home depot, lowes, or wal-mart. I recommend them completly, go and enjoy your new garden!
