Video Segment: Weston Nurseries Opens for Spring

With the arrival of spring, it will soon be time to once again fix up the garden and the yard. Owner of Weston Nurseries Peter Mezitt stated getting ready for the season is progressing nicely but was a little delayed;. "We have a lot of changes going on at Weston Nurseries...we couldn't really start that until the first week of April." Some of the changes that will be occurring at Weston Nurseries this year include defining the sales area with a fence and backdrop; "we're going to stock the right plants closer to where people park so it's easier to shop here this year." Mezitt also talked about how the various plants will have more detailed signs to make it easier for customers to navigate the options; "I think we're doing a better service to customers if we give them good displays with good signage so that they'll have better questions when they're ready to ask questions." Weston Nurseries recently added hard-scaping products to their selection such as stone choices for patios or walls, lamp posts, hitching posts, mailbox posts and fire-pits.

Despite the brutal winter weather slowing down the spring season, employees are hard at work renovating and setting up the stock to get Weston Nurseries ready for what hopefully will be a great spring and summer for gardening and yard renovations.
