About Us

Our Roots

Oakland Nursery was founded in 1940 on Maize Pike in Columbus, Ohio. The nursery was relocated in 1950 by its founder, Gustav Reiner, to its current location on Oakland Park Avenue. In 1990, Oakland opened another retail complex in the city of Delaware and in 2005, a complex in the city of Dublin. Our newest retail complex just opened during April 2011 in the village of New Albany. The Columbus, Delaware, Dublin, and New Albany retail complexes combined make the meaning of the motto "35 Acres of Gardening Pleasure" a reality.

We take pride in the fact that we are still family-owned and operated: currently owned by our second generation, our third generation of family members is also working in the business. Many of our employees have been with us several decades, and some even have their children working with us as well. Much of our plant material is grown here in Ohio, which a portion coming from our sister company Acorn Farms on the north side of Columbus. 

Today, Oakland Nursery is a diversified company that not only sells horticultural products but designs and installs living landscapes. We offer retail delivery, plant installation, landscape design, landscape construction, irrigation installation, interiorscape design & installation, and wholesale services in our quest of being a total horticultural entity.

We invite you to tour our site to learn more about our company and the many services we provide. Please contact us, or stop by one of our garden centers today.
