    The Westside neighborhood is stark and industrial, full of repurposed commercial buildings and brand-new, mostly empty condominiums. The lush Garden is a shock to the Westside's senses, a beautiful display of sophisticated greenery, pricey plant displays and European potpourri and incenses with a modern edge. The shop even provides design consultations and installation for those big projects in your little urban oasis. 1168 Howell Mill Road., Studio A. 404-941-9154. gardenatl.com. less...

    From the extensive line of organic and natural fertilizers and pest control to the earthy, knowledgeable and helpful staff to the sprawling community garden that supplanted an abandoned lot, THE URBAN GARDENER is obviously a labor of love. The grounds of the gardening shop and adjoining garden are as beautiful as any yard you could hope to create — which makes its location a block off Interstate 20 all the more encouraging. If they grow all that beauty in a smoke-choked city without the intervention of harmful chemicals, it gives us all hope. Just ask the staff about which perennials, shade trees, native plants and ground cover might work best for you (or have their landscaping team design a formal plan) and watch as your own grounds become an urban oasis. less...

    Visiting Habersham Gardens is like going on a treasure hunt without the hunt because the treasures are abundant. Tucked away off Cheshire Bridge Road, the seemingly small garden shop is actually an enchanting, and surprisingly large nursery and garden art gallery. Brimming with an extensive and healthy selection of plants, the focus is on variety, not volume. The staff is friendly and quick to answer questions. A pleasure to navigate, the nursery is filled with an eclectic selection of statuary, topiary, pottery and metalwork to further inspire your creativity. less...
