Murray’s Garden Centre is an official dealer for the Husqvarna Automower, which has been taking the world by storm as the #1 top-selling robotic lawn mower that achieves effortless mowing results, leaving you plenty of time to do anything other than mow the lawn.
We are so confident that this robotic lawn mower can look after all your mowing requirements, that we are offering a one week free demonstration on your lawn, at no cost to you. If you are interested, please use our contact form, with Automower Demo in the subject line. Please note that this is a first come, first serve offer for the St. John’s and surrounding area only.
Murray’s is now offering a service to design and plant custom containers or baskets. Using either your own container, or one of the many that we sell onsite, Murray’s can create a beautiful arrangement that meets your style and taste. If you are interested in this service, please drop by the Garden Centre (open April 3) with your container, and we will discuss the design of the container, as well as provide you with an estimate. Click here for some photos of past containers.
*Please Note: It is required that containers be picked up by June 25. We also remind customers to have orders in early, as those planted later in the season have less time to mature, and will not look as full as those planted in April and May.
Murray’s will be present at the 34th Annual Home Show at Mile One Centre from Friday April 7th – Sunday April 9th, 2017.
