Kindly stood behind a commitment to a refund when a product failed to perform.

I shop here a lot. For the limited space they have in their close-in location, they have an excellent variety of garden plants and mulches, etc. I wish they had modern roses other than the Knockout kind (hybrid tea and many floribunda roses are prettier, but they require more care). I suspect those don't sell well enough to justify carrying them. Sometimes lines are long and slow (on beautiful days when everyone wants to garden!), but this is primarily because customers sometimes wait until they get to the cashier to ask detailed questions about planting, etc. When I was there the last time, an employee went down the cashier line, asking if customers had questions--to try to prevent this--but people weren't considerate enough of the people behind them in line to cooperate. So the business did all it could to move things along.

Very convenient location. They have a membership card/program that gives you a discount on your next purchase, after you have bought a certain amount.

They are a great resource - very knowledgeable about their products - great customer service - may be a little more expensive but having them close by is worth it

These folks are top notch. I’ve loved their quality for several years and they seem to get better and better. Several trained Master Gardeners on their staff. They are located in the sweet spot along Arlington/Alexandria line and convenient to DC too.

So glad they are in the neighborhood! Great selection of plants - indoor and outdoor, ceramic and other types of planters, gifts, seasonal items, etc. Down-to-earth staff, very helpful.

I LOVE Green Street Gardens. They have a huge variety of plants, staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and prices are competitive. The enormous outdoor area is laid out like gardens. It's a pleasure to shop in this beautiful place.

The shop on Braddock was staffed by a bunch of teenagers (probably family of the owner) who knew nothing about houseplants, and seemed uninterested in helping me find the right plant. Selection is poor anyway. The one in Del Mar had an even smaller selection, and an equal lack of interest in helping. Definitely not the place to go for houseplants--maybe they're better for garden stuff, but I don't have a garden.

Love this garden center. It's a little further from our home, but has an excellent selection and reasonable prices.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Only minus is they stock very few native plants.

Absolutely excellent new owners and high level of informative assistance, great selection of plants and seeds, superb personal touch. Couldn't be happier with the new owners (maybe 2 years now).

GreenSTreet owners really have made strides forward since first taking over the center at this location in 2012. Year 2013 found good plant selection, consistent quality and increased staff onsite with horticultural background for answers to questions.

Green Street has replaced the Apple House. It seems that the quality of the plantings is better than at the Apple House. I cannot tell whether the prices have increased or not.
