Watertown Garden Center grand opening this weekend with Covid-safe precautions

WATERTOWN, NY  —  The brand new Watertown Garden Center at 430 State Street will still open this weekend, now with an altered plan to keep people safe and comfortable with masks, safer distancing interactions, call ahead ordering, and delivery options!

In a time when people are spending more time at home, they want their yards to look nicer and prettier than ever. We are also seeing an increase in people taking steps to grow their own produce so are stocked with fruit trees and vegetable starter plants.

Under NYS restrictions, these sales are allowed as essential products.

Watertown Garden Center, formerly known as Jake’s Garden Center, is now owned and operated by Justin Chesbrough owner of A Cut Above Landscaping.

Justin bought Jake’s Garden Center and Jake’s Lawn Care from Jacob Johnson in March 2020, bringing together two great companies to better serve your lawn care and landscaping needs.

The previous outer Washington Street (17940 US Rt 11) location for Jake’s Garden Center is still open, now as Watertown Garden Center.

The new Watertown Garden Center location at 430 State Street is set to be a more convenient retail location.

The Grand Opening date of Saturday, May 9 was set to kick off the flower, planting, and gardening season in coordination with Mother’s Day weekend, before the coronavirus pandemic occurred.

The Watertown Garden Center is still fully stocked with flowers, plants, vegetable starts, fruit trees, shrubs, mulch and stone – everything you need for gardening, landscaping, growing and beautifying – just now with covid-safe precautions in effect for a grand opening.
