Our Story

The Garden Gates offers the best in home and garden products -  fountains, statues, pottery, benches, candles, outdoor furniture, indoor living items, bird baths, gifts and more.  Our products are a collection of French Country and Shabby Chic to match today's perfect home. Through the philosophies of building a better box, attracting and retaining talented and dedicated individuals, and creating the perfect demand for our customers, The Garden Gates exemplifies how inspiration can come alive.

It all started in 1984 or so, Chad Harris became fascinated with gardens. He was living on an island that had a beautiful, glass English greenhouse.  During the summer months, he would plant different seedlings from the grounds. and watch than ever so carefully grow.  As luck would have it, most would die.  But once in a while, he would hit the jackpot with some type of green plant.  Later in life, his mother would tell the same story to friends and, lo and behold, these green plants were really just common weeds from the garden.  

On his 11th birthday, it all came to him; he could make money the old fashioned way, mowing neighborhood lawns.  During these early years, he became inspired by flowering gardens and the changes they encountered.  Years later, his love-- or fascination--with gardening became alive.  He found himself dreaming of a place for everyone to enjoy.  This became reality when The Garden Gate open a retail store in Metairie, LA.  

The Garden Gate retail store opened in 1990 with Co-Founders Chad Everett Harris and Jacqueline Elizabeth 'Beth' Kendall-Harris. The husband-and-wife team sought to start a retail operation that complemented both Chad's gardening and landscape design acumen and Beth's eye for style and design. Beth played an instrumental role in product development, interior design and the fine-tuning the core principles of The Garden Gates lifestyle, while Chad was the brains behind the creativity of the brand, marketing, and technology of the business.

Over the years, The Garden Gate was a destination in the Old Metairie neighborhood located in the Southern Louisiana.  During 2015, the Harris' met an impasse with their landlord and were unable to negotiate the continued property lease.  This resulted in the retail store closing and it was heartbreaking for everyone, our family, our staff, and our community.  

In the summer of 2015, after their parents closed the retail store, Aiden and Ashton Harris, took their parents' entrepreneurship lead and launched a brand new fully functional online destination featuring the best in Home & Garden decor. has a team of landscape architects, designers, and lifestyle enthusiast that assist customers nationwide.

The history of The Garden Gates is being written as we speak; it’s constant re-evaluation and brainstorming, we try every day to make The Garden Gates better. It is not enough for us just to be good at what we do or even the best at what we do. It’s about doing things so out of the ordinary that remarkable results are created.  The success in The Garden Gates resonates in the ingredients of the best team, outstanding products and a community that supports the efforts, our opportunities are endless.

The tree we received is absolutely beautiful. But I just wish it hadn't dried out so fast. It's not taking water& dropping tons of needles, branches starting to droop. Delivery men were exceptional & did a great job.

my credit card company (discover) called to verify the transaction for gardengate was authorized, my wife didn't recognize the name and said "no", then after talking to me, next day she called credit card company to approve order transaction, not sure why this transaction would be flagged, never had that happen for a legit transaction in the US

The Garden Gates offers a vast array of products, yet the site is easy to navigate. Prices are some of the best online, and customer service is right there for the asking! Shipping was just as promised, and it was securely packed in two boxes. The birdbath is sturdy, looks well made, and is a superb addition to my garden! Thanks!

Working with Sara was Great. Deciding on which Fountain took me three weeks and Sara understood knowing it was a large purchase. Thanks Sara
