Terrain's Cadillac of Garden Stores

Store Profile

Store History

  • Founded: 2008
  • Headquarters: Glen Mills, PA
  • Sister stores: Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie

Founded in 2008, Terrain transforms the local garden center into a celebration of nature. Terrain strives to be the most inspiring and compelling outdoor lifestyle destination while cultivating an appreciation for healthy and natural living. With a focus on community, terrain fosters a collaborative environment based on a shared fondness for growing, wellness, sustainability, design and the self-expression of the gardener.

Terrain, the garden and home store, has had one brick and mortar presence, in Glenn Mills, Pennsylvania, since 2009. Now, the brand has added a second location in Westport, Connecticut. In a space that once housed a Cadillac dealership, Terrain has opened a lush garden center and restaurant.

As a part of URBN brands, the folks behind Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, you would expect that Terrain's new Westport store to be well designed, with a reclaimed/industrial edge. And that's exactly what we get. The former Cadillac dealership provides a perfect backdrop for that industrial-gardening fusion. The floor to ceiling windows and concrete walls, though originally used for a more industrial setting, have a greenhouse appearance in this new incarnation.

In addition to gardening supplies, like Australian tree ferns, Black Mondo grass, and fig trees, some previously unavailable on the retail market, Terrain also stocks vintage and handcrafted furniture.
