Celebrating Over 50 Years of Business!

Young and optimistic, Tom Bath started out in 1965 with only a pickup truck and a handful of tools. Today we’re celebrating over 50 years as a locally-owned, family-run business.

Tom bought the property at Prospect & Timberline after starting his landscape company. He needed a place to store trees, perennials, and equipment, and people driving by often asked if they could buy the trees. So, he took a leap of faith and started a retail business in addition to landscaping many large projects across Fort Collins. What started as a small landscape company quickly grew to include a boutique, garden center, residential and commercial landscaping, power equipment sales and service, and became a place where both new and experienced gardeners could mingle and find inspiration.

We believe organic gardening can make a huge difference in the world, and we strive to provide each customer with an organic solution to insect and disease challenges. Our knowledgeable staff makes all the difference. From our nursery experts to those who keep the store clean and beautiful – thank you is not enough. Our staff has a great enthusiasm for researching and sharing what they know and love.


Most importantly – thank you Fort Collins and the Front Range for making Bath Garden Center and Nursery a very special dream come true for our family!
