Residential Plant Services in Maryland

Our budding horticulture program operates out of our Greenhouse and Gardens, providing seasonal plants and a large selection of native plants for sale, including wetland grasses. Due to the fact that our products are grown using integrated pest management—which limits the use of any pesticides—you can be sure that your plant purchases will benefit the world around you as well as people in the Anne Arundel community.

The horticulture program at Providence Center’s Greenhouse and Gardens offers butterfly gardens and rain gardens in addition to our other plants so that you can make your yard brighter and more colorful during any season. We also sell Christmas trees and a variety of holiday decorations to make the most wonderful time of the year even better!

Environmental Restoration in the Chesapeake Bay Region

Our horticulture team is contributing to our community through important environmental restoration projects, including the rebuilding of Poplar Island in the Chesapeake Bay. By participating in our horticulture program, people at Providence Center are making the environment a greener, happier place.

In partnership with the Magothy River Association and Anne Arundel Community College, our wetlands program also offers floating gardens to help Maryland homeowners enhance their waterfront and clean our local waterways. Through their work, Providence Center’s Greenhouse and Gardens bring joy to both our Maryland neighbors and the earth as whole.
