You are cordially invited to attend a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, September 28th, at 4 p.m., as the Chamber of Commerce of the Bellmores celebrates the Grand Opening and Anniversary Celebration of:
Gene Judd was born and raised in Merrick, and he, like many others in his profession, began cutting lawns for the neighbors.
At an early age, it was clear that Gene was a natural entrepreneur. This quickly turned into a business and became a full time job after high school. Gene was the owner/operator of Royal Landscaping which serviced properties in Merrick, Bellmore and Wantagh.
In 2002, Gene purchased Island Greenery, located in Bellmore Village on Grand Avenue. Island Greenery was in desperate need of renovations and TLC.
After completing the necessary renovations, Island Greenery quickly evolved into a full service nursery.
Offering a wide variety of annual and perennial flowers, trees, and shrubs; services included weekly maintenance, landscape design and installation. Later a masonry division was added to complement the landscape design service. Island Greenery’s employees included local students and retirees alike. After nine years of growth, Gene felt Island Greenery had outgrown its location and needed to expand.
After discovering a local property for sale, he decided to make the move. Island Greenery’s new home is now located on the corner of Bellmore Avenue and Oak Street, the property is 25,000 square feet, more than doubling the original location. The move has enabled Gene to provide his clients a much greater plant selection and additional services.
We are delighted to celebrate with our members and hope that you will be able to join us for this celebration! Please RSVP to Karen at 679-1875.
