About Us

If you enjoy helping people and working cooperatively in a team plus you thrive in a busy atmosphere, Ward’s may be the place for you.

Donald J. Ward Jr. started Ward’s Nursery and Garden Center at 600 South 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.

Don’s sons Greg and Mike expanded the greenhouses and opened a new Ward’s garden center in May 2010. The expanded space allowed for more garden accessories and gifts while improving the customer experience. In 2021, Greg was joined by his daughter Eva and Mike’s son Sam to help more generations of gardeners grow.

At Ward’s, we pride ourselves on being a leader in offering horticultural products customers can count on, sharing gardening information that customers can trust, and providing friendly customer service.

To do this we pledge to:

  • Sell only top quality merchandise and display the products attractively so that shopping at Ward’s continues to be an enjoyable experience.
  • Meet our customers’ needs pleasantly, efficiently and effectively.
  • Be directly responsible to each customer for every activity and transaction.
  • Recognize and reward staff effort, loyalty and dedication.
