Serving The Lake Of Bays Region And Beyond

Humble Roots

Lake of Bays Garden Centre (formerly Dwight Garden Centre) began the old-fashioned way, from humble roots and hard work—two things we’ve never shied away from since. Owned and operated by Linda Boothby (née Clark) and her daughter and son, Emily and Tom Keown, the garden centre began in 2001 with Linda selling annuals and bags of soil off a flatbed trailer at the side of Highway 60. Now occupying eight acres at the north end of Lake of Bays, the flatbed has been upgraded to two greenhouses and a 2400-square-foot building housing the garden centre, a home & cottage décor and fashion store, and a florist. (And yes, we still have the flatbed.)


Our Products

Open year-round, we have extended business hours for contractor services—opening daily at 7 a.m.—and offer door-to-door delivery of everything from trees, topsoil, mulch, grass seed, and cut flowers to Muskoka chairs and gift baskets.


Linda and Emily and their team at the garden centre have been providing gardening service to our Lake of bays property for over 15 years.
They provide the type of service that you can count on. If Linda says it… it will be done.
When at the Garden Centre the selection is always great and everyone in the yard is helpful and knowledgeable.
We have always enjoyed working with, and trust, the good people at the Lake of Bays Garden Centre.

It is a pleasure for Brian and I to write these words about our special relationship with the people of the Lake of Bays Garden Centre…more specifically Linda, Emily, Elaine, and of course, Chip. Several years ago my husband and I purchased property on Lake of Bays which required a significant amount of restoration. We contacted the Dwight Garden Centre and not only met a friendly but an extremely knowledgeable crew of landscape and horticultural personnel.
We engaged the team to design and install, stone paths, patios and barbecues, flowers, shrubs and trees along with the annual maintenance.
The results have been magical. The property has a feeling that it has all been here for a very long time, honouring the historic integrity. It is everything we imagined it to be and more, beautiful and functional.
