The 16 Acres Garden Center app is designed to help you have more fun in the garden and at our garden center. Each time you visit the garden center your purchase will be validated at the register and you’ll receive another ‘punch’. After 5 punches you’ll earn a reward. Click on the rewards tile and you’ll see all the rewards you’ve earned and all those you are eligible for.
Our app is more than just rewards. We’ve included a tips and topics feed to keep you up to date on all upcoming events, featured plants, gardening articles, videos and more. There is also a plant guide with over 3000 plant descriptions, photos and care and culture tips.
Finally, use our ‘Ask Us’ feature to send photos and questions to our staff. Have a question about what kind of plant it is, have a pest that’s bugging you or lawn or plant disease you want to get rid? Use our ‘Snap & Send’ tool to get answers to all your gardening questions.
A couple of pointers – you’ll need to have the app open and your bluetooth enabled in order to take advantage of some of the app’s features.
