OUR STORY

We have been growing healthy and hardy plants on our 200 acre farm for over 25 years. Named Mandy's Spring for the abundant freshwater springs that dot our property and a turn-of-the-century pioneer and farmer named Mandy who shared her abundance of freshwater with nearby farms, our land has been cultivated by the Smith family for three generations. In 1985, Todd Smith and his wife Leonie transformed the former dairy barn into a garden center, and developed the former pastures and meadows into fertile growing fields. 

Todd and Leonie recognized an opportunity in Upstate New York to grow their own nursery stock, growing healthy and hardy plants that are acclimated to the harsh winters and unpredictable weather prevalent in the Northeast. Their combined horticultural and landscape design expertise made offering landscape design/build services the next logical step. 

Today, as a third-generation family business, we have a deep appreciation for the land we steward and the landscapes we create. Many of our plants are grown the old-fashioned way, in the fertile fields surrounding the garden center. Our nursery team is always on hand to answer any questions and to help with consultations, and our landscape design/build team can tackle any project large or small.

In typical Smith family fashion, Todd and Leonie weren't content with just a nursery, garden center, and landscape design business. In 2010, we opened the doors of The Florist at Mandy's Spring, where we craft seasonal arrangements for any occasion. In 2019, Todd and his sons built a timber-framed barn, fulfilling a longtime dream to start an event venue. Thus, Gables & Gardens, the event barn and gardens at Mandy's Spring, was founded. The barn can accommodate groups from 2-200 for celebrations, weddings, and special events. 

Our mission is to provide knowledgeable service, helpful advice, and healthy plants for landscapes and gardens that thrive for generations. Whether you need hanging baskets to spruce up your front porch or a full landscape redesign, our huge selection of healthy plants and friendly and knowledgeable service will help you to create your own garden sanctuary.
