We do the planting.
You sit back and relax!
Stop by and explore our selection of the season’s freshest, hand-picked plants and choose the plants you want. There is a minimum installation fee of $150.
Speak with one of our in-store Sales and Design Experts to make sure you have everything you need for a successful garden project. Then we’ll schedule your Pick & Plant installation!
We show up with the plants you selected and the tools necessary to plant them. You show us where you want them and we’ll have your plants professionally planted in no time.
Stables Garden center installs trees, shrubs and perennials! We charge 65% the cost of what is being planted (ie: a $100 tree costs $65 to plant). If an item was purchased on sale, the installation price is still half of the regular, non-sale price. Please account for delivery costs when having plants installed by us.
Upon checking out, you will schedule a delivery and install date with one of our customer service team. When you make your purchase, you will receive flags to use as markers. Please insert these into the ground to indicate where the plants are to be placed. If you have purchased multiple plant types, we suggest writing the names of the plants on the flags to ensure our crews properly place the plants should you not be home at the time of planting. Clearly mark all lines if they are in the planting area. Are there gas, power, cable, drain, water, sprinkler or invisible fence lines in the area? If you are unsure about public utility lines, call New York 811 for free marking services.
Sod & Soil Removal
We will remove an area large enough to accomodate the root ball of plant. Whenever possible we will incorporate existing soil into the landscape, however offsite removal may incur a disposal fee.
The planting area needs to be ready to plant in, with the exception of sod removal. Roots, stumps, rocks or debris should be removed before the installation date. If there are obstacles at the planting site we will charge to remove these obstacles at a rate of $60 per person/per hour. Small shrubs may be removed at the time of planting for a fee: $85 per person/per hour plus $65 for off-site disposal. (One hour minimum charge. Advanced notice of removals is required.)
Pictures of Our Latest Design & Install
Consult with an expert horticulturist at home or in store. We have always provided complimentary design advice in store on a first come first serve basis during business hours. We encourage you to bring in pictures to help visualize the area you want to work with. As one could imagine during our busy season it is very difficult to provide every customer with this attention. We now offer a limited block of in store and at home consultation times by appointment Monday-Thursdays. There is a fee of $60.00 for one hour of in store consultation. You can also choose to have an at home consultation for a fee of $100.00 for one hour. If you choose to purchase any products or services as a result of a consult we will credit you 50% of the fee towards the sale.
