Countryside Gardens In Hampton Closing At Year’s End

HAMPTON—A well-known and loved local business is closing after almost 20 years of service in Hampton. Countryside Gardens founder and owner, Tish Llaneza and her team announced on Facebook, “It is with a sad heart that Countryside Gardens is CLOSING. Almost a 20-year run ends December 31, 2021. Personal reasons and age has taken its toll on the ‘Soil Sisters’ and it’s time to retire. As the owner, I leave with love in my heart for my staff and our wonderful guests who have supported our small business. I appreciate the privilege of serving the community and will never forget all the friends and fun we shared.”

The locally owned and operated garden center has been a trusted resource for bulk soil and mulch, specialty soils and fertilizers, whimsical garden sculptures and birdbaths, a wide selection of plants for any landscaping project, and a gift shop with some of the most unique items for home and garden. The staff of Virginia-certified horticulturalists were always available to answer any questions about planting seasons, shade versus sun plants, and any other landscaping queries visitors have.


The store, located at 220 E. Mercury Boulevard, near the intersection of E. Pembroke Avenue, is currently liquidating their inventory, offering 30 percent off the entire store, with an additional 5 percent off for Garden Reward Members with proof of membership. All gift certificates issued will be honored through December 31, 2021 when the store will close for good.
