Kelly’s Garden Sense will host a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 28, for their new 2,500-square-foot greenhouse located at 134 NE 10th Ave., Great Bend. They will also begin offering seasonal retail hours, April 1 to May 20, for customers to shop the Greenhouses and the signature POP of Color that Kelly Meier-Moeder, owner, is known for.
“My designs layer a mix of color, texture, and unique plants that mature, color all season, and thrive here. We had a hard time sourcing or couldn’t find all the varieties we wanted before ... now we can grow them right here in Great Bend!” Moeder said. “We built our first greenhouse in 2021 and outgrew it almost immediately. The new greenhouse is double the size and allows us to grow bigger, fuller plants year-round, and they’re built for the Kansas heat and elements.”
Moeder got her start in landscaping, typically a male-dominated field, with three pots of annual plants and an eye for design. What started as a seed of inspiration has grown and bloomed into a team of seven at Kelly’s Garden Sense, the color expert and a premier Commercial and Residential Landscaper in Great Bend. Moeder is a certified landscape designer and has a passion for creating pottery and landscapes that are anything but ordinary. Her goal is to elevate the curb appeal of Great Bend and the surrounding area one landscape, business, or display at a time.
“This project was no small feat,” said Moeder. “We had to rely on Paul’s leadership and years of experience with building and working with contractors (Moeder’s husband and business partner) and our many friends and experts in the community to bring this greenhouse to life. It would not have been possible without help from Schenkel Construction Company, Gleason Landscaping, Comfort Pro, Rainmaker, Tory McFarren, Stone Stand, and Scott Christian.”
