America's Gardens helps local amateur gardeners go green all year round

In this first week of spring, lots of gardeners are getting excited to get outside and play in the dirt.

But even if you don't have a green thumb, one local business says bringing the outside is not out of your reach.

When your business revolves around going green, the calendar can pose a problem.

So America's Gardens came up with their own answer.

"Within the last two years people have become a lot more interested in the idea of a terrarium or having live plants in their homes," says McKenzi Lewis.

These small glass globes are taking the place of expansive, outdoor gardens, for some customers anyway.

But inside or out, it all starts with the same base.

Add a few rocks... and then it's all about lots of colors.

Tinted moss and tree bark add texture to the globed garden.

But it's the centerpiece that makes these so easy to handle.

These air plants only need one or two squirts a water a week, making this mini-garden possible almost anywhere.

"I'm glad that I've been able to take something that I'm really passionate about, I've always loved plants, and to bring it to people in a way that they feel like they can really take care of it," says Lewis.

You can find America's Garden terrariums at their store on Dayton Boulevard, or at the Chattanooga Market, when it opens at the end of April.
