I've always been very satisfied with both the attentiveness and knowledge displayed by their floor staff, and haven't experienced difficulty when calling, however, their new, younger floor staff as well as their cashier staff need to at least learn how to smile. The cashier that I dealt with yesterday afternoon (6/25/16) was far more interested in reading her book than she was in attending to her customer. I would characterize her as "snippy" at best - when I asked if they had a chip reader, she said, "swipe." No eye contact, no thank you, nothing. Management needs to pay attention to this as, no matter how good the help is that a customer receives on the floor, the experience with the cashier is the last interaction.

This is an amazing hardware store. They are incredibly knowledgeable and incredibly willing to help. They are also extremely helpful without being condescending, which is also very important to me. Fabulous service all around.I have never tried to call and do not care if they don't answer the phone. I'm happy the people in the store are first priority.

I've been buying from Leon's at Rocky Run Parkway since they took over the site from the former garden center. They are always helpful and their prices are much less that other garden centers. I have never bought any plant from them that did not flourish. Highly recommended
Tips & Advices
A plant guarantee covers the buyer that if a plant doesn’t survive the guaranteed amount of time (usually one year, but sometimes up to 5), the plant will be replaced. This does not cover annuals, which have a life cycle of only 1 year.
How often to water a grass lawn depends on the climate, the type of soil that surrounds your property, and how deep the root system of your grass grows. A general rule for watering is: every day during summer in warm climates. This rule can be modified if lawns are older, or the climate cooler. For mature well-rooted lawns, deeper but less-frequent waterings are recommended as being healthier than daily 15-minute rinses.
Fruit trees should be watered different frequency of times depending when they were planted. Younger trees, up to the second growing season, should be watered twice a week. Make sure to give up to 1 full gallon of water weekly to newly planted trees during their growing season, and more when it’s gaining  eaves. Once the tree reaches mature fruit-bearing stage, waterings can be cut back, as the roots are sunk and can find ground water.
The question of when to plant fruit trees really depends on climate. The general rules are: You should not plant fruit trees when the ground is frozen, when the peak daytime temperature is more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit, or when the forecast shows extreme weather (i.e. a tornado warning). Aside from those rules, the suggested planting times are either fall (which most people recommend) or spring (for bare-root trees).
There are many kits sold on the market that measure soil pH levels. Dyes, test strips, and electronic pH meters are all formulated to assist the home gardener. Many people choose to simply shake up soil and distilled water, and then measure the pH with a hand-held meter However, some people consider this method not very useful, and suggest using a lab for greater accuracy.
