Through their continuous innovations in manufacturing and installation methods, Walpole Woodworkers has been the leading supplier for both historical and custom design fences and architectural features for more than 75 years. Today Kent Greenhouses recommends Walpole’s “no-to-low” maintenance alternative to cedar wood construction as the ideal material wherever wood structures and plantings are combined. Walpole’s Freeport Series cellular vinyl is superior to other wood-alternatives — it has the weight and solidity of hardwood, and the look and feel of wood — yet it will not rot or deteriorate.
As we now represent Walpole products — standard, historical and custom fences, pergolas, arbors, trellises, posts and garden features — we can now offer our customer the same prices, promotions and guarantees from Walpole Woodworkers, while also providing a local direct source for Walpole products, with the attention, service, design ingenuity and commitment to craftsmanship and quality of installation that have gained us your loyalty and trust
Just as most life forms have a cycle of needs, gardens are no exception. From the initial sowing of seedlings to mature growth, all plants require regular maintenance in the form of pruning, shaping, and, when necessary, rejuvenation. Whether it’s a large specimen tree or flowering plants, proper lawn care and garden maintenance will nurture your lawn and gardens into the future.
The cycle of seasonal cleanup, edging, weeding, appropriate fertilization measures and monitoring are all components of the stewardship that a garden needs throughout its life.
At Kent Greenhouse & Gardens our staff of horticulturists, arborists, veteran groundskeepers and plant aficionados work towards continuing education in order to remain at the forefront of emerging trends in plant care, pest and disease management, maintenance techniques and, most importantly, to help our customers make informed decisions.
Stop by today for our customized garden and lawn maintenance approaches that balance proper horticultural knowledge and practices with your budget and expectations to achieve the most desirable garden maintenance outcomes!
Accessory buildings and structures often provide the skeletal framework that helps connect to the landscape. Not only do they offer supplemental aesthetic to the surrounding landscape, but they can also pull multiple settings together, creating a holistic backdrop for your home. They also offer an attractive, relaxing space to provide entertainment to friends and family.
Whether it’s barn frames, new or antique, that provide warmth and reassuring ambiance or studios or potting sheds that inevitably become “man caves” or “craft rooms”, accessory buildings present an escape from the demanding schedules of today.
From tree house to tea-house, the design-build process starts with initial discussion, integrating critical features, finalizing construction detail and working within budgetary parameters. With that being said, our team of professionals includes designers, engineers, estimators, installation crews, equipment operators, sub-contractors, suppliers and manufacturers, all working cohesively to complete your project on time and on budget.
The design-build process is devised to save time and control cost inflation by incorporating design, permitting, construction, inspections and hand over with one team – from start to finish.
At Kent Greenhouse & Gardens, we also have a working partnership with Walpole Woodworkers who provide distinctive fences, structures and buildings crafted from both White Cedar and Azek cellular vinyl.

Across various design and construction professionals is a key ingredient of our goal to bridge relationships to both support design initiatives and resolve unique construction challenges.
We are happy to participate as a member of a team in the capacity that best suits the needs of our clients with respect to the various projects they have undertaken. We can help coordinate other professionals, or assume a more specified role among a larger team of professionals and contractors that share a stake in the project.
Our focus is foremost on the success of the project and the satisfaction of the owner — all the while understanding that these are dependent upon the successful coordination and clear communication between multiple professions and perspectives across various levels of project scope.
We aim to deliver the very highest professional standards that our clients expect.
The Design-Build team includes designer, engineers, estimators, buyers, equipment operators, crews, loyal subcontractors, suppliers and manufacturers. Clients retain the opportunity to re-visit designs, alter or upgrade work, or fast-track to future phases of the project.
Design – Build process begins with design development, starting with initial discussions of our client’s ideas. The process goes on to include integrating critical features, developing a working site plan, and then finalizing construction details and specifications. This proces is smoothly integrated with cost estimating and contract negotiation. Clients review updated costs projections and use this information to revise designs, prioritize areas, and conform to budgetary concerns. Clients get a foreseable price sooner. The permit process can be completed while the designs are being finalized — saving valuable time which could jeopardize construction deadlines and inflate up-front costs.
