We welcome you to Carolina Home & Garden!

About Carolina Home & Garden

Welcome to our Family Business! Carolina Home & Garden was established in 1996. Over the years, we have grown into much more than your local Garden Shop! We have thrived on being a unique and beautiful boutique garden center for almost 25 years! Owner's Brian & Stephanie Watson started this business in their mid twenties. It was not until their daughter Logan began her journey here, that Carolina Home & Garden became more than your plant buying place! 


The Garden Center is located in the back part of our property. This has made shopping for plants and all of your garden's needs, much more convenient. We now have a checkout located near the Garden Center too! In the front part of our store, we have a vintage cafe and bar room, and a separate wine lounge and arcade room. Brian loves collecting vintage arcade games! When he was a young boy, his father Larry Watson, owned an arcade on Emerald Isle. This has become the hangout spot where parents can enjoy a beverage, while their children enjoy playing games. Right outside is our koi fish flagstone patio. We love watching the kids feed the koi fish and hangout outside. We also have two alpacas, goats, doves, horses and a Chinese pheasant! We strive to be your local gathering place, for everyone in the family!

 We offer weekly happenings! The best way to see all that we offer during each month, is to check out our Monthly Calander. Our newest creation is our Coffee & Cocktails bar! We finished building this in 2020. We offer locally roasted espresso beverages, deliciously fresh cocktails, fresh pressed juices, teas, old fashioned sodas, and so much more! Enjoy lunch with us Thursday-Sunday! We have many spaces to enjoy and use during the week for your workplace or gathering place! 


We really take pride in our latest Event Venue at Carolina Home & Garden. Brian and Stephanie created Dream Makers Wedding Estates in the early 2000's! They created two beautiful Wedding Venues on the Crystal Coast, The Watson House and Gardens in Emerald Isle, NC. And also, the Palo Alto Venue in Maysville, NC.  It was not until 2018 that they began to transform Carolina Home & Garden into their third Venue. Having access to so many beautiful plants and décor from the garden center, has really made it special to host an Event at CHG. All throughout our 5-acre property is truly beautified. We have planters everywhere. Water features, statuary, lighting, vintage décor, unique furniture sets and seating all around to enjoy. In 2019 we finished building our new climate controlled Tropical Event space. We are calling it, "The Sunroom" at Carolina Home & Garden. Inside is decorated with whitewashed ship lap, chandeliers, and exquisite plants all throughout the space. The rough shiplap on the walls in the Sunroom actually came from very old pine trees that hurricane Florence knocked over on the Watsons property! We took something that had been destroyed by a hurricane and made it better! The Sunroom is a space that can take on any style and design. You can dress it up with floral and décor or keep it simple and elegant with the natural green plants, and white shiplap. This room being big enough for around 250 people, we are ready to take on any event, big or small! Enjoy our botanical gardens, koi fish patio seating, and everything in between. We have worked years and years into making this property something quite exquisite. Come see for yourselves! Tuesday through Saturday evenings we are open to the public for a fun night in the gardens! Live music, dancing, food, drinks, shopping, and so much more! Enjoy beer, wine, and cocktails, any day on our patio, or inside all of our fun hangout spaces! Check out our events tab for more information. 

We hope you have a better understanding of all that Carolina Home & Garden has to offer! Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have! We are always excited and happy to help our awesome customers. Call to set up a tour for your next event. Come stroll through our gardens and boutique too. We would love to meet you.
