Family-owned Garden Center in Akron
About Our Garden Center in Akron
Canton Road Garden Center: A Kline Family Tradition since 1980. Our tradition starts way before that! John Kline was raised on his family farm in south Akron. He learned about growing - growing vegetables and fruit. One day he realized he had a knack for this garden growing that he studied lawns, fertilizers, trees and shrubs.
When John was in his mid-thirties, he built Canton Road Garden Center with his business partner, Bill. After twenty five years, Bill retired. Canton Road Garden Center is now a 3 - acre nursery filled with landscape plants and a 12,000 square foot greenhouse loaded with gorgeous colorful flowers.
John and his family work together: his four children have all been raised in the garden business and work to support the family tradition. In fact, all the staff at Canton Road Garden Center has been together for nearly 30 years. If they are not related by blood - it sure seems like it.
Come out and see all of us. We may not be on the family farm anymore but we didn't move far from it!
