Amatos was established in 1978 when Peter Amato joined forces with his dad Anthony Amato and turned a part time business into an operation that employs 30 to 40 full time employees. Amatos core business began within the lawn care industry and gradually has developed its main focus to designing custom elegant landscapes. Plant knowledge is an integral part of the design process and translates to the wealth of information available at the garden center. Amatos is situated on a six acre nursery and has one of the most extensive plant selection in the area.
