What is Mercury Mulch and Garden Center?
With over 20 years in business, we are the primer distributor of Landscape goods on the Peninsula. Our material yard carries 10 different types of mulch as well as topsoil and composts. We also have a fully stocked garden center with the staff having over 100 years of combined horticultural experience.
How did you get started?
I previously had another company in the same trade field and the old owner approached me about selling in 2020. A deal was made in January 2022 and we have continued building on the solid foundation that was originally made.
What has been your biggest business success so far?
Our greatest achievement is providing Hampton with one of the last small business garden center left in the city.
How do you connect with your community?
Our connection to the community runs deep. Being born and raised in the city of Hampton, giving back is a huge part of who we are. We have donated materials for community gardens, school projects, and sponsored little league teams.
