Visit us at B.B. Barns Garden Center to get started
B. B. Barns is more than just a retail garden center. We love our customers and we want to help you however we can. Come by the Garden Center and let us help you with your next project. We offer a wide variety of services.
These services are intended to help do-it-yourselfers and provide convenience for our in-store customers.
We Plan, You Plant
Perfect for the do-it-yourselfer who just needs a little guidance, our We Plan, You Plant service will provide the knowledge and direction you need to get the job done right. Bring us pictures and measurements of the area in question and we will help devise the best plan that fits your wants, needs, and desires.
You bought a gorgeous 8' tall tree and have no way of getting it home? We've got you covered. B. B. Barns offers delivery of anything you purchase at our Garden Center within a 50 mile radius (exceptions can be made). The delivery fee will be based on distance and labor required (1 or 2 man delivery team). We offer installation as well (see You Buy, We Plant service under Blended Services).
Need help identifying a mystery plant? Does your neighbor own a plant that you would love to have in your garden? Bring us pictures, leaves, and cuttings (if possible) and we will help you identify your mystery plant. We will then help you find it in our Nursery, order it for you, or point you in the right direction if we don't have it.
Bring your own container or purchase a container at the store and one of our sales associates will help you design a wonderful container garden. Finished containers will be available for pick-up within 48 hours.
We always recommend utilizing the NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services for soil testing. However, we can provide a basic pH analysis if you bring a sample to the Garden Center.
Bring us your houseplants and orchids for repotting. Repotted plants will be available for pick-up within 48 hours.
Lean on our furniture experts to help you make the right decision for your outdoor living space. Bring in pictures and samples, or have a sales associate visit with you on-site, to help you make the best choice.
These services often begin at the Garden Center and then result in work or consultation at your home.
Sometimes you need someone else to come take a look and give advice in your garden. We can provide a fresh set of eyes and years of gardening experience to help you develop the garden of your dreams. Garden Coaching sessions are by appointment only.
You Buy, We Plant
Purchase the plants you want (based on your own plan or one we help you create) and we will deliver and install the plants for you. Plant installation is completed by appointment and the labor charge will vary based on plant type, location, size, and quantity.
Customers who desire container gardening help will work with Brenna Henley, our container gardening expert. Brenna will help you design, shop, and install the perfect container garden for your home or business.
