Introducing Portland's Only Outdoor Living Showroom

We’ve changed how people can imagine and plan their outdoor living spaces. We’ve created a whole new way to buy the plants, materials and furnishings you’ll want in your yard. We’ve developed a new way to engage designers and landscape consultants so you can get the help and planning you need to transform your yard. This spring, visit our Scholl’s Ferry showroom and store to discover just how different shopping for your outdoor environment can be.

What’s New? What’s Functional? What’s Possible?
Visit the Drake’s showroom gardens to find out.

We’ve transformed our 22,000 square foot garden center into a seasonal showroom that showcases the latest in garden design, and highlights the trends and classic influences that inform how American’s are using and enjoying their outdoor living spaces.
