Summer is a perfect time to spruce up patios, basically making them a welcomed, extra outdoor room. By thinking on multiple levels, homeowners can create aesthetically pleasing and functional private patio spaces. The team at Main Line Gardens can help with identifying ways to add plants, shade, seating, and visual interest in vertical as well as horizontal ways. 

For all garden center and outdoor accent needs, many people enjoy the convenience and peace of mind from getting options, assistance, and long-term relationships at a one-stop, trusted business. Located at 376 Paoli Pike in Malvern, Main Line Gardens specialists indicate they cater to that same goal.

For patios or lounge outdoor areas, Main Line specialists routinely assist homeowners with "going green." Add lush green touches to outdoor oases for truly stunning looks. Be sure, however, to pick plants that grow well outdoors and that are easier for which to care. Hang baskets of trailing ivy or ferns from on high. Add ground cover plants, such as lantana, to frame walkways or paving stones. In between, mix it up with flower boxes and planters of all sizes. 

Or, add color to patios by introducing vases, plants, planters, and more in a variety of shades. If choosing neutral-toned upholstery for seating, jazz up the color scheme with a mix of colors in both solids and print pillows.

As a family-owned, full-service garden center and nursery for professional landscaping and hardscaping, the Main Line Gardens team vows to provide the highest standard of quality service they can, no matter the size of the project or job. Their on-site nursery contains a full selection of plants, trees, shrubs, mulch and stones.

Founding partner and owner Jody Camp assures they've put high-quality products and exceptional customer service at the forefront of the company since 1981.

Through Main Line's hardscaping services, customers can secure patios, walkways, retaining walls, driveways, and other additions to their backyards -- topped off by custom potting. Custom potting designs also are tailored to each outdoor living area for a complete look and feel, including the sizes and styles of pots. Team members say they believe landscapes are truly complete with several potted plants to bring fresh color and fragrance to each customer's retreat. This hardscape team uses a variety of materials, such as pavers, brick, and natural stone materials to construct surface areas for multiple purposes.

In addition to pottery, Main Line offers beautiful bird baths and garden statues to add a classic touch of regality and sophistication to outdoor areas. Some customers choose certain statuaries to become the focal points of their gardens or yards. 

In 2014, Jody even expanded the company's service offerings and added another level of expertise by obtaining Waterloo Gardens, an iconic landmark that provided landscaping and hardscaping services as well as a nursery. With sprawling gardens full of beautiful flowers and plants as well as an on-site store with outdoor furniture, home décor, and garden accents, the Main Line Gardens' team maintained the Waterloo Gardens brand to preserve its history and is still honoring its devoted customers.

"No matter what kind of atmosphere you desire, our plant specialists and landscaping professionals will develop the ideal environment to complement your home," says Jody. "We manage every aspect of projects to ensure we take care of each detail for optimal functionality and an all-around cohesive feel."

"Our mission is to provide both function and beauty to our customers' outdoor living spaces," adds Jody. 

Adding to the services, Main Line also offers insect repellents, in liquid or granular forms. They also sell covered repelling stations, which are designed to act as a barrier between plants and predators while also allowing them to get the sunlight, water, and nourishment necessary to thrive.

Mulch in bulk quantities, or bagged soil, can be secured from this garden center, too. 

The Main Line garden center offers a large indoor plant selection and unique garden tools, accessories, pots, and accents, as well as seasonal holiday decorations.

Bonus tips: Customers can pick plants, and creative Main Line staffers will pot them in the perfect planters, designing tailored arrangements to suit each home or style. Because their terracotta pots are porous, water and air easily moves through them, an element that helps prevent both root rot and disease.


Main Line Gardens hosts special events, such as Ladies Night Out, Easter Egg Hunt, Mother’s Day Specials, Black Friday Sales Event, Visit from Santa Claus.
