About Us

The Largest Garden Center in Central Virginia

Launched April 1, 2017 Rustic View provides customers with a range of plants and home decor. From its start as Gary’s Garden Center, opened in 1993 by Gary Garner and son Nelson as one greenhouse and grown into what you see todaysix huge greenhouses; and from CLC, which started in 2001 with two brothers and a push mower and has now grown to a full-service commercial landscaping company with 25 team members.

Rustic View Home and Gardens uses their experience to bring customers not only the goods and services that they need, but also the information they need to make the best decisions about their projects.

Owner Operator Chris Templeton wanted to expand into the retail market because of the desire to share his years of knowledge and passion for landscaping with a wider clientele. He believes customers should be able to make well-educated decisions—regardless of whether they ultimately purchase Rustic View’s products.

Rustic View can help you choose the best plants and decor for your needs – whether you want a few little house plants or a lush flower bed in front of your home!

Rustic View can offer plant suggestions based not only on plant specifications, but also on extensive hands-on experience with the local landscape—knowing what works well in the area and what does not.

We’ve created an environment for people who share our enthusiasm for landscapes to learn about what products may be the best fit for their own outdoor spaces.

Rustic View offers a full range of landscaping products, including trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, soils, mulches, seeds, fertilizers—as well as a great selection of outdoor living furniture and accessories.

We also provide bulk products like soil, mulch, stones, and bales of straw.

Education is key whether you are doing it yourself or hiring a contractor; we are ready and willing to share the time- and money-saving techniques we have learned over the years.
