Our Story

Since 1972

Laurel Gardens is a family owned & operated garden center, here is our story………..

John and Betty Gill began a landscaping installation business called Laurel Landscaping Co. in 1972. Through the years it eventually became a full retail garden center now known as Laurel Gardens.


With the help of wonderful employees and the absolutely best clientele, the garden center grew from a 12′ x 20′ office building to a 3-acre garden center with 12¬† greenhouses for seasonal plants and a wide selection of landscaping plants that thrive in our gardening zone.


After 45 years in business, John & Betty retired and sold Laurel Gardens to Mark & Tracie Young.


Tracie grew up at the garden center and with the Gills. It is a special place that started their love for the gardens and even where they started dating! Since then they have had all 4 of their children grow up and work at the garden center. Their girls have each grown into different parts of the business, but you can still come by and see most of them playing in the dirt and picking flowers.


They cherish the old and new memories they make with family as they grow flowers and serve the community they grew up in!



Laurel Gardens is here to grow with the gardeners of Southeastern Kentucky  and continue as a premier garden center for many years to come.
