In addition to a host of pre-potted container gardens and hanging baskets, our Green Team can design and plant your existing containers or new pottery.

Bring your existing containers to your local Earl May Garden Center or schedule an appointment and we will come to you. This is a great way to get a customized container garden that is unique to you and your space.

Weed, Disease & Pest ID

Do you suspect you have a weed, disease or pest problem? Snap a few pictures and/or bring a sample (in a baggie) of the leaf, bark, or turf into your local Earl May Garden Center and we can help determine the problem and provide a solution.

Lawn Checks

Having problems with your yard? Bring a few pictures of the problem, or even a sample of your lawn, into your local Earl May Garden Center and we can help diagnose the problem and provide the solution. For larger issues, schedule an appointment with one of our certified experts and we can stop by your home to determine what your lawn needs.

Soil Testing

Many plants and vegetables have a preference for a specific soil pH. If you don’t know the pH of your soil, drop off a sample at your local Earl May Garden Center and we can test it for you. If needed, we have a host of amendments you can apply to bring your soil pH back to the perfect growing conditions.
