Our Home and Gift

Inspired by the color palette that surrounds us, our products offered reflect the natural beauty of the area and the landmarks on the peninsula: including the dunes, beaches and water. Whether it’s the candles you burn, the pillows you cozy up with, the art that surrounds you, the centerpiece on your table, the serving piece you pass, or the rugs you walk on... they all contribute to making your house, a home. Your home (or home away from home!)

Our Home and Gift
Our Garden Center

The Northwoods Garden Center has become a favorite of the Glen Lakes region for all of their garden needs.  While we offer the traditional year round garden essentials such as tools, shovels, rakes, hoses, fertilizer and plant food, grass seed and pesticides.  It is the Spring that when things really come to life. Perennials typically arrive just after Mother’s Day, quickly followed by a wide variety of Annuals and Landscape Bushes for the home.  We have become a destination for  garden & landscape needs such as Ceramic Pots, Garden Gifts, Hammocks, Topsoil and Compost & manure, River rock & Pea gravel, including a large variety of bagged Mulches and Potting soils. All together waiting for your next garden project.  Come Check Us Out – The Back Yard at Northwoods!
