Shelby Park’s business returns to the neighborhood in a colorful way

Tony Hess started his landscaping business in 1982 on Logan Street. For the past 40 years, the plot next to his business has been used as a landfill for his company. “At one point we had mulch as tall as the building next to us!” It was generally a little sore in the eyes. So Hess decided that when the time came, he would open the first nursery in the area. “I buy from growers from all over and many of them keep nurseries. And I always thought it would be a good business here,” Hess said. . Finally, in April, Hess managed to open. Only in the first few months since he has been in business have neighbors and other companies noticed its benefits. The next neighbor of the children’s room is Atrium Brewing. The brewery’s vice president, Donald Mahoney, said they noticed more pedestrian traffic thanks to the children’s room. “They’ve always been great neighbors, but now it’s just a bright, beautiful place,” Mahoney said. He hopes that residents and guests of the area can come to drink something in his business and enjoy walking around the children’s room. “I hope everyone can enjoy a day like that,” Mahoney said. Adam Stekelar, general manager of Harvey’s, a business in the nearby Logan Street Market, says he is most excited that the neighborhood is getting a different variety of businesses. “It’s good to have something a little busier, not just another restaurant,” Stekelar said. “There are a lot of great restaurants in this neighborhood, but it’s nice to have something that actually brings more greenery to the area.” “When you see beautiful flowers and trees, you can’t help but smile. When you smile, you think a little differently about a neighborhood,” Rogalinski said. “It encourages people to they visit, buy, shop and they also come and want to live here. ‚ÄĚHess is just happy to bring joy to the area that has supported his business for more than 40 years.

“We used it not only for our equipment, but it was also our place to throw our bushes and things we plucked during work,” Hess said. “At one point we had mulch as tall as the building next to us!”

In general, the eye was a little sore. So, Hess decided that when the time came, he would open the first kindergarten in the area.

“I buy from growers from all over and a lot of them keep nurseries. And I’ve always thought it would be a good business for here,” Hess said.

Finally, in April, Hess managed to open.

Only in the first few months of business, neighbors and other companies noticed its advantages.

Resident Chip Rogalinski, a former president of the Shelby Park Neighborhoods Association, said he knew this was exactly what the neighborhood needed to continue to grow.

“When you see beautiful flowers and trees, you can’t help but smile. When you smile, you think a little differently about a neighborhood,” Rogalinski said. “It encourages people to visit, buy, shop and they also come and want to live here.”

Hess is simply happy to bring joy to the area that has supported his business for more than 40 years.
