Wheel & Barrow Garden Apparel & Goods – For Gardeners and the Garden Admirer Alike!
The soil has been amended and cultivated. The contours of the garden established. Now with the launch of the Wheel & Barrow Garden Apparel & Goods - an online shop - this young plant, that is this shop, is tucked tenderly into the earth… or well the interwebs.
Just like planting a new garden or even adding a fresh plant to an established garden the anxious moments persist. Will this endeavor blossom into the beautiful entity I envision? How do I take care of it? How do I make it grow? Unveiling a new business is exciting, unnerving and of course a lot of work.
But I plan to care for this new online venture just like I do a garden. I’m going to make sure it’s in position to get an adequate amount of light. I’m going to nurture my product offerings to ensure they are aligned with the expectations and desires of my community. One of my long held beliefs is that a well-tended garden and landscape is a gift to your neighbors, friends, and the community. That belief rings true to Wheel & Barrow Garden Apparel & Goods, it will be grown to be a contribution to the gardening community.
As you may know, I am a landscape designer working out of Portland, Oregon. I own a landscape design and maintenance firm called, Wheel & Barrow Landscape. When I started this business just over four years ago I envisioned creating an apparel line as a component of the business model. Bootstrapping the endeavor, the landscape design and maintenance were the most practical priorities. With those sides of the business now supporting themselves it is time to open the shop.
For me working in the garden is fun, meditative, a place to relax and unwind. Whether I am working in the garden or enjoying its bounty the fore mentioned adjectives remain consistent. With Wheel & Barrow Garden Apparel & Goods I aim to create and deliver products that are aligned with the spirit of the garden. They’ll be fun, useful and beautiful.
I invite you take this journey with me as I grow this business from idea, to the launch of a new business into one that matures, growing bigger and more beautiful over time. Visit the site at wheelandbarrowgardenapparel.com
