Oakland Nursery was founded in 1940 on Maize Pike in Columbus, Ohio. The nursery was relocated in 1950 by its founder, Gustav Reiner, to its current location on Oakland Park Avenue.
In 1990, Oakland opened another retail complex in the city of Delaware and in 2005, a complex in the city of Dublin. Our newest retail complex just opened during April 2011 in the village of New Albany. The Columbus, Delaware, Dublin, and New Albany retail complexes combined make the meaning of the motto “32 Acres of Gardening Pleasure” a reality.
Today, Oakland Nursery is a diversified company that not only sells horticultural products but designs and installs living landscapes. We offer retail delivery, plant installation, landscape design, landscape construction, irrigation installation, interiorscape design & installation, and wholesale services in our quest of being a total horticultural entity.
We invite you to tour our site to learn more about our company and the many services we provide. Please contact us, or stop by one of our garden centers today.
