“Two words epitomise Fermob furniture : Outdoor Lounge. Outdoor, for everything which attracts and draws us outside to recharge our batteries; and Lounge, for our desire to relax and feel at ease. In brief, Fermob furniture is part of the pleasure gained from the positive effects of nature, such as getting together in a garden, improvising a terrace on a beach or creating a green paradise in one’s own back yard… For the ever-increasing number of people who yearn for this lifestyle, Fermob offers a range of innovative and comfortable furniture, in various shapes and sizes which let one’s imagination run wild and encourage numerous creative ideas for decoration, since the furniture is available in a multitude of colours.”
Marvin Gardens is proud to carry Fermob’s Bistro Collection, made in Thoissey, France.
Folding patio chairs and tables are available in a variety of classic Fermob colors. Special order colors are available as well. Stop in to pick up your set at our new location:

Marvin Gardens has settled into a new home at 759 Danbury Road, Wilton as of April 1, 2013. The new location is just several hundred feet north of the old home of 10 years. With the move comes a fresh look, with lots of bright interior space and an expansive exterior. Renovations and improvements continue as the warm weather progresses and planting out becomes part of the daily routine. Stop in to take a peek at the new and improved Marvin Gardens!
For more than a century, Americans have had a love affair with the automobile. This love of all things automotive stretches across every make and model including the most utilitarian of vehicles, the humble pick-up truck.
It is not just the auto enthusiast who understands all the workings of a combustion engine that can appreciate a beautiful car. There are countless people who simply love the style and beauty of an antique automobile.
These national treasures are becoming scarcer by the year and any antique trucks for sale make a great investment and a great focal point for anyone with a backyard, a garden or a landscape vision. Finding these gems may take some digging and some time, but they are certainly worth the effort.
The process of finding vintage, antique trucks for sale may seem a daunting task but here at Marvin Gardens, we’ve had the opportunity to collect several antique trucks that we adore and would love to pass along to our wonderful clients. Our team is always thrilled to help you identify the right vintage truck for your needs and show you a few that just might fit the bill.
With just one visit to our shop here at Marvin Gardens, you’ll notice something a little different. Unlike traditional landscape stores and garden centers, Marvin Gardens is ripe with bold, innovative ideas for your home garden.
There is much more to creating a stunning landscape than having a green thumb. Though flowers and plants provide a lovely backdrop, for a truly remarkable home, your outdoor scenes should be expressive of your inner creativity. Bringing in old items and finding new ways to use them, or in finding something new to repurpose, we can create a new product – a new landscape that is worth boasting about.
That’s why our team at Marvin Gardens searches high and low for unique, special pieces for your home. In designing this way, your home becomes a true representation of your individual style and something no one else can imitate.
Though the winter months here in the northeast can seem long and dreary, we enjoy the season because it allows us to revamp and build anticipation for all that we’re planning for the year ahead! The Marvin Gardens style, as many of you know, is not something that can be found in traditional garden stores or volume dealers, but rather, it is a style of collections and personal embellishments that make your landscape much more exclusive.
In our preparation for the year ahead, we are once again bringing you the fantastic re-purposed industrial bins and agriculture containers that we are famous for. We’re proud to bring these back because of the way that clean lines enhance the free form and loose structure of live plant material in the garden – a brilliant way to highlight your plants!
Using the look of our products creates a style and a scene that truly sets your landscape apart from others. To guarantee that you’ll have a garden worth bragging about, view more of our products by looking through our pictures on the Marvin Gardens Facebook Page!

For landscape designers, April showers usually bring much more than just May flowers. They also invite us to think about best-practice gardening ideas, some of which can be universally applied pretty much any type of exterior design scheme.
Just came across a great article in The Epoch Times in which writer Mark Cullen outlines some great, and timeless, gardening trends to keep in mind.
Here are four of my favorite…
Native plants: Use of native plants in the landscape to reduce maintenance (fewer bugs and diseases), increase natural biodiversity cycles
Gardening in containers: Canadians are ‘pushing the envelope’ by mixing annuals and perennials together in containers, often adding vegetables and herbs for both a practical and decorative touch.
Color: Demand for annuals and perennials that produce a reliable abundance of colour for the longest possible length of time is on a steep rise.
Invest in your own outdoor ‘retreat’: Spend hard earned cash to improve your yard and garden rather than booking costly travel vacations or purchasing a vacation property.
Well, what do you think about these tips/trends? Do you have any of your own?
The Philadelphia International Flower Show is strongly considered one of the premier gardening events in the world, in part because so many outstanding talents make their way to the Show each year the showcase their finest plants and design work.
So when it was announced this past Sunday that Marvin Gardens won the Blue Ribbon for Best Retail Exhibit, we were absolutely thrilled!
Since 1829, the Philadelphia has maintained a tradition of showing some of the most exceptional and unique plants and displays from around the world, so to be now listed in the Shows history as one of the best in class, well, that’s truly an honor.
The Philadelphia Flower Show continues throughout Sunday, March 13, and we plan to be around and take in as much of the scenery as possible. Be sure to stop back to the blot later in the week, as I’m sure there will be plenty more great photos to post!
