What Our Clients Have to Say

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!


Thank you to Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping for doing such a great job on our flower beds and planting new trees!! It looks great!!

Zehr’s has a wonderful, reasonably priced assortment of garden plants and the staff is friendly and helpful. I’m already planning on going back next spring.
