Heights Garden Center has been a popular destination since 1995 when Cleveland Heights resident Ken Hadden worked with the city and transformed an old parking lot into a garden center. With roots that have grown deeply in our community, Heights Garden Center will thrive under the careful hand of its new owner, Bob Bremec.

Hadden said Bremec, owner of Bremec’s Greenhouses and Nursery in Chesterland for 22 years, had been asking him to sell Heights Garden Center for some time, and this year he felt that the time had come to do so.

Hadden respects Bremec, after doing business with him in the past, and felt that he could entrust his business to him. “He runs an extremely clean operation,” Hadden said.

Bremec is enthusiastic about his new garden center. He said he wanted to locate in Cleveland Heights because of the great value and importance that Heights residents place on making their lawns and gardens beautiful. These gardening enthusiasts need places to buy their lawn and garden care products.

Bremec’s on the Heights is a place gardeners can go with all of their lawn and garden care needs, questions and concerns, said Bremec, who was educated in the Gates Mills Horticultural Program. He wants to show customers the options they have in their gardens.

"I want to be an educational source for their needs," said Bremec. He added that when people purchase products from Bremec's, they are buying directly from the growers and therefore will get the best value for their money.

"We really thrive on good quality and the quality of our plant material," said Bremec. "Our passion is plants."
