Native Landscapes headquarters and Garden Center is located right on the beautiful Appalachian Trail right where the Trail crosses New York State Route 22. Rt. 22 runs north and south in "The Oblong", a historic strip of land two miles wide and 51 miles long that, way back in 1731 became the border between New York and Connecticut and, essentially, the southern demarcation between New England Yankees and the rest of the early colonies.
The Appalachian National Scenic Trail (“A.T.”) is a national treasure in the form of a 250,000-acre greenway extending over 2,100 miles from Maine to Georgia. The members of 30 clubs under the auspices of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the National Park Service, work to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the clean air and water, scenic vistas, wildlife and the opportunities for simple recreation, family fun and renewal along the entire of trail.
Being on the Trail and surrounded by the Trail greenway reminds us of how beautiful and spectacularly varied native plants are. As an environmentally friendly landscape and garden center, the A.T. also helps as a reminder of why it is so important to focus on using native plants in our gardens and yards.
Native Landscapes is honored to be on the trail and we’re hiker friendly – always happy to welcome hikers to our camping space and our designated clean-water fill-up.
