ROOTED IN LOMBARD
Hacker's Glenbard Gardens in Lombard, Illinois is family owned and operated.
In 1976, after working their whole lives in the farming/gardening businesses, Reinhold (Bud) and Laverne Hacker left the family garden center in Skokie to venture out on their own. They moved to Lombard and purchased what was then named Glenbard Gardens from the owners, who were retiring. They renamed it Hacker's Glenbard Gardens and reopened the garden center with their children, Nancy, and Ron. After many fulfilling years in the business, Bud and Laverne retired in 2002, passing on their life's work and passion to Ron and Nancy. In 2022 Ron's sons, Brian and Dan, took the reins and now run the business. You will still find Ron and Nancy popping in to give advice and lend a helping hand.
We are a traditional garden center offering friendly, knowledgeable, down-to-earth , honest service. We have classic plants varieties, as well as the newest offerings.
