 Laurel Oak is a family owned business that has operated for more than 27 years. They are open year-round and offer everything a homeowner needs for gardening and landscaping.

 With a knowledgeable staff focused on giving customers personal attention, Laurel Oak stocks quality plant materials, soils, stones, mulches and boulders. They also carry a large selection of organic fertilizers, controls and “green’’ items. ;

 Laurel Oak is an authorized Techno-Bloc interlocking paver distributor and has a unique outdoor showroom on their 12-acre site that also features a vast water gardening department with pools and falls. Their Design-Build Landscape Division can provide you with a custom design—including trees, shrubs, pavers, ponds, patios and outdoor kitchens—and has a team available to make it a reality.

 The epitome of a community partner, Laurel Oak is an active member of the Marlton Business Association, and also volunteers to assist local schools and civic associations. Their annual Garden and Pond Tour recently raised $3,500 for the Evesham Education Foundation.

Why Buy Local?

If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!

For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy.  When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.

How we all benefit by shopping Burlington County:

  • Keep Burlington County's economy strong and growing.
  • Embrace local businesses, which create 80% of new jobs and often provide better wages and benefits
  • Save time and money and protect the environment. Shopping locally saves travel time and gas money
  • Get great products and services at competitive prices at any of Burlington County's 8,000 one-of-a-kind, independent businesses 
  • Create a sense of community. Community groups get 350% more support from local business owners than non-locally owned businesses.
