our story

As an Arlington Heights native, Cody Gertz has always taken pride in giving back and beautifying the community.

In 2014, he and his wife, Sara, decided it was time to merge their passion for the outdoors with their love for community and open Gertz Garden Center in neighboring town, Lockland, OH.

Gertz Garden Center started as a nursery where locals could pick up their seasonal flowers, trees and other plants.  It wasn't long before it flourished into a place for Lockland and other local residents to gather, grow and share.

Cody and Sara are hoping that with the success of Gertz Garden Center, a new era will begin in Lockland, where the neighborhood can be brought back to the booming economic center it once was.

As hosts to craft fairs, holiday parties, birthdays & other special events, Gertz Garden Center is quickly becoming a staple in our local community.

We make every attempt to carry products from local greenhouses or family owned businesses.
