Event Space Opens at Trad's Garden Center

We’ve been talking about our display at Trad’s Garden Center on San Jose for quite some time now. Well, the time has come to announce that it is open for business! The event space has been a long time in the making, but seeing it now makes the wait well worth it. A few weeks ago the space was utilized for the first time by Slow Food First Coast for their membership meeting. The 50 or so people had plenty of room to mingle comfortably, shade from the beautiful arbor, soothing music from the outdoor speakers and delicious food prepared by Art Jeannette of Checker’s BBQ & Seafood. Art prepared everything right in the outdoor kitchen and was quite pleased with the space! It was so great to finally see the event space being used to its fullest potential. Whether you’re planning an event, considering adding an outdoor living space to your home, or simply curious to see what the First Coast’s finest contractors are capable of constructing make sure to stop by Trad’s 8178 San Jose Blvd. 32217 to take a look at the space! See you there!

Trad's Garden Center Event Space

Quite some time ago, we approached Chris Trad of Trad’s Garden Center about some empty space on his property. We asked him “What if we designed an event space, and got it built for you using the highest quality craftsmen in all of NE Florida?” Chris replied “Sounds great; it’ll never happen!” Fast forward to today…there is a wonderful 50’x70′ paved event space that is already being put to good use! Tropical Pavers of Jacksonville installed the flooring and retaining walls, using products from Tremron and Tile Market of San Jose. The current project underway is the outdoor kitchen. It is so exciting watching it come to life! The foundation was poured by Concrete Slabs and More, and will soon we wrapped in beautiful stacked stone. It features appliances from Sawyer Gas, and a stunning sound system from Live Wire. The Master Carpenter is using his incredible skill to complete the woodwork that will support the gorgeous countertops Living Stone Creations is installing soon. It has been so much fun working with all these talented companies to create a space for everyone to enjoy. We can’t wait to finish up the outdoor kitchen and host a big barbeque! If you haven’t been to Trad’s in a while, you really should stop in and check the garden center out. Just make sure to bring your umbrella if you visit within the next few days!
