About Us

Enjoy helping people? Thrive in a busy, team atmosphere? Ward’s may be the place for you.

Donald J. Ward Jr. started Ward’s Nursery and Garden Center at 600 Main St., Great Barrington in 1957. Starting out with 2 small greenhouses and a potting shed, Ward’s has since grown into a must-see destination for gardeners and holiday enthusiasts.

Over time, Don’s sons took over the business. By implementing expansions and installing new greenhouses, they improved inventory selection and the customer experience.

In our third generation now with Eva and Sam joining Greg, Ward’s Nursery continues to grow. At Ward’s, we take pride in horticultural products customers can count on, current gardening information our customers can trust, and friendly customer service.

Our continued success depends on:

  • Selling top quality merchandise and displaying products attractively so that shopping at Ward’s continues to be an enjoyable experience.
  • Meeting our customers’ needs pleasantly, efficiently and effectively.
  • Recognizing and rewarding staff effort, loyalty and dedication.
