The Garden Company from the Garden State

Founded in 1998, Messinas has been a lawn and garden products manufacturer for more than 20 years.  Our products can be found in all 50 states and in more than a dozen countries around the world.  Our approach is simple: we want to offer the best products in the best packaging at the best price.

Company co-founder James Messinas believes that there's a fundamental difference between having to do business together and wanting to do business together.  When you have to do business with someone, iterations are forced, conversations are cold and distant and codependency replaces openness and trust.  But, when you actually want to do business together, information flows freely back and forth, ideas as well as success are shared and trust holds the relationship together.  At Messinas, we strive to be the kind of company that you will want to do business with for a long, long time.
