FAMILY FOCUS: “Our specialty is our service and our focus on garden tools and equipment. We are a family business, and we pride ourselves on that.” Charles, Jr. and Donna Baldwin, owners of Baldwin Unlimited, Inc., are shown with their son Brad (right) beside the Bad Boy Z.T.R. (Zero Turn Radius) mower.
Once seen on nearly every street corner in times gone by, a long-time family business is much more of a rarity these days. When such a business weathers the changing times, trends, and customers’ choices, it is a source of pride.
Baldwin Unlimited, Inc. at 1627 Reed Road in Pennington, which now includes three generations of the Baldwin family, is still going strong.
SPRINGTIME DISPLAY: “At Madden’s, you will find friendly service, thousands of perennials, shrubs, and ornamental and seasonal plants, and a tremendous selection of pottery.” Melinda Madden, owner of Madden’s Nursery & Landscaping, holds a gorgeous full-sun hanging basket, overflowing with petunias, geraniums, and verbena in shades of lavender, pink, and purple.
People are getting the itch to get ready now. They’re coming in to look and see what’s available for their garden.”
Melinda Madden, owner with her husband Peter Madden, of Madden’s Nursery & Landscaping, looks forward to helping customers with their choices and is always ready to advise on the appropriate plant, tree, or shrub for a specific spot.
