Our Story

It all started in 1962 when Carroll and Betty Harper launched their dream of providing quality garden and ornamental products at an affordable and reasonable price. Carroll purchased a $3 concrete-mold catalog that he had found while flipping through a gardening magazine. The Harper's aspiration of owning their own company was sparked by the purchase of just one concrete-planter mold. According to Carroll, business was sluggish at first. But, with the dedication and help of Carroll's family, Dale, Doug, and Isaac, Harper's Statuary & Water Gardens has increased their product line over the years to nearly 800 pieces and now has wholesalers in six states.

In 1995, Harper's expanded their family venture to include their eccentrically decorated Water Garden Center full of diverse fountain and water garden displays. Today we are at the same landmark location on Route 11, still paying close attention to the finest details to provide a unique customer experience. We also feature a giftshop on our premises with other handmade gifts and decor. Customers travel from many states to make a day out of the one-of-a-kind experience. Our knowledge and experience has kept us an industry leader since 1962.
