About Us


Greetings from The Big Red Barn – the heart of the Ponderay Garden Center, North Idaho’s award winning nursery.  Our Mission at PGC is to create an environment that inspires the use of nature’s resources by helping people fulfill their desired outcomes and landscaping dreams.

The Ponderay Garden Center is so fortunate to have such a wonderful facility in which to house our multitude of garden and landscape products that arrive daily.  We have taken what was once a beautiful family farm, with all its existing outbuildings, and converted the farm into a truly unique and captivating retail experience.

When you shop at PGC you will be shopping an extensive selection of the healthiest, happiest plants, trees and shrubs in our area.  You will also be shopping organic planting materials, beautiful garden decor, and a truly impressive inventory of Idaho Stone – natural stone, flagstone, pavers, concrete – to name but a few.  You will also find an incredibly knowledgeable staff from our Plant Manager, Kerri Flemmons, to William Friedmann, who has a vast background in landscape design as well as the rest of our genuinely friendly and knowledgeable staff.  We are here, at The Big Red Barn, looking forward to making your garden and landscape experience second to none!

Come on by!  We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Ponderay Garden Center

 The Big Red Barn

The heart of the Ponderay Garden Center, the barn is not only a delightful retail space, but this is where we make your gardening and landscaping dreams a reality.  Come in and let us help you plan your next project.

 Vern’s Barn

 This structure used to be the old equipment shed. Just as if it were a big Home Show booth, it is loaded with organic fertilizer, organic chemicals, great landscape decor items and the tools you need to create your dream garden. As a new edition to our 2020 design, we’re adding a beautiful pond display to Vern’s Barn.

The Hardscape & Bulk Yard

Tons and tons of beautiful landscape and masonry grade stones, as well as Pavers and Wallblocks. Beautiful Natural Stone Fountains. Everything you need to create that landscape you have always dreamed of. If we don’t have it on site, we can find it for you.

The Pottery Shed

This was the old milking shed and is now dedicated solely to our beautifully diverse and unique pottery collection. We’re sure to have the perfect piece to enhance and diversify the look of your yard!
