The single most important thing in business is the satisfaction of the customer.  To not only give the products and services that they want and need, but to give them a smile and a feeling of appreciation.  After all, business begins and ends with the customer.

Custom Potting/Contain Yourself Potting Bar

Let our talented design team turn your containers into amazing works of art!  We offer container design for indoor and outdoor beauty.  Bring in your own container, or choose one from a large selection of unique pottery.  Seasonal planting and rejuvenation of your containers is available for all seasons.  Container drop off is required as we do not pick up.

Our Contain Yourself Potting Bar allows you to play in the dirt and leave the mess with us. Bring your houseplants that have outgrown their pots and give them a fresh new look. When it’s time to create your outdoor containers, use the bar to mix and match flowers. Our bar lets you get creative! You can also have a private party at the Contain Yourself Bar (maximum 9 people). There are many options for parties, so just give us a call at 412-241-0411. Remember to check out our event schedule because we hold workshops at the bar throughout the year.

Diagnostic Center

It isn’t uncommon to see customers walking into the garden center carrying along a weed, an insect, or even a chunk of their lawn. Sometimes gardening comes with questions you just can’t answer without the help of an expert. For over 30 years our friendly staff has been helping customers find solutions to all kinds of lawn and garden problems.

We have a dedicated diagnostic center right inside the store. We can examine your plant, weed, or insect under a microscope to determine the problem and provide solutions. Simply bring in a sample of the plant for a complete diagnosis. (Samples can be left with a member of our staff, and we will be certain to contact you within 48 hours to discuss your specific problem).

Garden Pro

Have you ever felt like you could really use an expert to walk through your yard with you and help you learn about your plants?  Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to prune them, feed them, or just generally know how to keep them looking their best?  Not to mention the need for an expert when your plants are having problems!  Sometimes it would just be nice to have an expert right there on your property to diagnosis a plant problem, identify an insect or to offer solutions that would help you with your troubled landscape.

Penn Hills Lawn & Garden has expanded its services to bring our expertise directly to your home.  Our garden pros will help you assess your garden challenges and suggest solutions.

Soil Testing

Bring in your soil samples for soil testing to determine any deficiencies or toxicities that may be present in planting beds, gardens and lawns.  Before planting, a soil test is recommended to be certain that you choose a plant that will thrive in your particular area.  A soil test may also indicate why plants may not be doing well for you.

To submit a soil sample please follow the instructions below:

  1.  Dig down 6 to 8 inches into the soil you want tested-  DO NOT TOUCH THE SOIL WITH YOUR HANDS AS IT WILL CHANGE THE PH OF THE SOIL
  2. Place approximately one cup of soil in a ziploc bag or other container
  3. Bring the sample to the garden center for testing.  Results typically take between 48 and 72 hours but can take up to one week depending on demand

You are permitted to bring multiple soil tests, but be sure to label them according to the area where the sample was taken.  Each test costs $5.00.  For additional details please call 412-241-0411
