Kathy & Zeke Linton

Kathy and Zeke opened The Home and Garden Center in April of 2005. Their love for all things gardening left them wanting more, and running out of space at home, brought on the idea of opening up their own garden center.

 Their goal of finding hot, new trends and products sets The Home and Garden Center apart from any other. 

Danny Armstrong


Born and raised in Hallsville, Danny’s interest in plants started at a young age while working in his family’s garden. 

Danny has been working with the Lintons since the beginning in 2004. After visiting nurseries around the country, he and the Linton’s combined many of the ideas they took from their travels and began creating The Home and Garden Center in 2004.  He enjoys helping people design a landscape they love and are proud of. He is responsible for many of the beautiful designs throughout the East Texas area.
