The Greenery began in January, 1985 with Cook’s Farm, Home and Garden Center in Park Hall, Maryland, offering plants and gardening supplies as well as animal feed and farming materials. Recognizing an increasing interest and appreciation for nursery products and landscaping services led to our current location. We purchased the Greenery in Hollywood in September of 1986.
From the beginning we have been and remain a family owned and operated business with strong ties to the community. Owner Wes Cook is a graduate of St. Mary’s College of Maryland, making St. Mary’s County his home. Brother-in-law Bill Gough, a St. Mary’s County native, a certified professional horticulturist and a graduate of Loyola University in Baltimore, heads the landscaping division. We take pride in assisting our customers in nurturing and preserving the natural beauty of Southern Maryland.
There are many resources for plants and gardening supplies. What sets us apart is experience, product knowledge, personal service and a passion for what we do. With decades of experience, we encourage you to “pick” our brains! Whether you are a first time gardener, an experienced do-it-yourselfer or in need of landscape design and installation services, The Greenery professionals are always eager to assist you.
