Luckily for us, there's no need to travel far to pick up the must haves, whether you are getting a garden started or just planting a few flowers in cute pots. These stores in Valley City offer every item you could need to start on the track of developing your own green thumb. So, consider making a list of all the lawn care essentials you'll need and stop by these stores on the weekend or after a busy day at work.
