Our Story

 Garden’s Gate Garden Center and Landscaping was opened in 2010 by Dave Stacy & Stephanie Stacy in our small town of Ottawa, Illinois. At that time we started off as a small garden center with one greenhouse growing a few perennials and annuals. Over time (and a lot of hard work) we’ve added greenhouses, landscape services, expanded our plant collection and introduced our home and garden line. As we’ve grown so have request so from our customers to purchase some of our products online. As we branch out to online sales we have are also working on adding and growing our home & garden line to sell as our new start up known as Oak Allee. 

Why would we choose the name Oak Allee instead sticking with Garden’s Gate? To make a long story short, we searched and searched for a website name related to Garden’s Gate sadly just about everything we liked or made sense was already taken so we’ve decided to go a different route TA-DA Oak Allee was born.
