As they say, ‘We are knee-deep in summer now’, enjoying the roses in the garden and awaiting the first tomatoes of the year. The time and sweat expended this spring in the landscape is evident now, though we are not done sweating by a long shot. The peaches didn't do anything this year (Thanks, old man Winter!) but the blueberries are going crazy. We had to replant a lot of Hollies and Butterfly Bush, but it was a nice year for Lilacs and Dogwoods. Most plants started pretty slow, due to the cold spring, but are catching up now and pushing lots of lush growth with the recent rains.
For those whose frenzied life swept them through the spring and are just getting to the yard work now, you're in luck. Oakland's “Thank You” Sale is on now and all regularly priced stock is at least 20% off. Annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, statuary, fountains, hardgoods and gifts are included. Enough to finish planting that front bed, accessorize that bland looking patio area, or if you're ambitious, redo the whole back yard!
The main store is located 1 mile east of I-71, on Oakland Park Avenue. Exit off I-71 at Exit 114, North Broadway, go east to Maize Rd. Turn left (north) and go one block to Oakland Park Avenue.

In our frenzied lives, we all yearn for that secret place to escape to, if only for a few minutes a day. The cozy den with your favorite chair, the hammock under the Sugar Maple, the garden bench by the fountain or the leafy garden walkway past your favorite perennials. They are special places to relax the mind and restore the spirit, and should be part of any landscape.
Let our experts at Oakland help you plan your secret place with our great selection of plants, statuary, fountains, and garden accents. We can turn a landscape that is just ‘pretty to look at’ into something special to live in.
Bringing your Garden in to Focus
Fountains and garden statuary are typically sold as accents to the garden landscape. You know, ‘the extras’ after the important stuff goes in. However, the power to draw the eye, and focus attention, and add a beautiful contrast make a carefully selected fountain or statuary piece essential to the home garden.
In a spread out and diverse garden, a fountain can focus the eye and give the garden a center. Or it can turn an obscure corner of the garden into that secret garden nook. Statuary can be playful or give the garden a theme to build on. In a formal garden, the placement of fountains and statuary are important elements in the design.
Oakland Nurseries carry hundreds of classic and contemporary designed fountains and statuary pieces. We buy from the industries' best manufacturers; Campania, Masserelli, Henry Studios and Elegant Earth, who in turn get their inspirations from the world over. Stop in and see our selection.
