No Christmas Blues in Bayhi
Growing Up Green Acres
Bayhi’s Green Acres Nursery is a professional landscaping company tending to more than just your greenery needs! Serving Thibodaux since 1980, Green Acres Nursery and Christmas Store is a family-run business and pillar in the community. Indoor and outdoor services range from bedding plants, hanging baskets, trees and shrubs to home decor and their infamous Christmas trees.
It all started 42 years ago in Baton Rouge, LA. Dennis Bayhi, founder, opened Green Acres Nursery with his brother in 1974. He operated multiple nurseries there until deciding to move to Thibodaux upon learning about the need in the community. In 1980, Bayhi opened his new nursery on Cardinal Drive just down the street from E.D.White Catholic High School, and has been there ever since.
Christmas in September
The Christmas season is the the busiest time for Green Acres. They begin setup for the holidays in early September. Decorating the store and taking orders for Christmas arrangements must start early (because it lasts until the week before Christmas!) in order to finish projects for the churches, Reindeer Rowe & Santa’s Land, the local hospital, and private homes. One of their most popular items is their Christmas wreathes and garland, each one is made differently and adds a beautiful touch to your front door and homes. They also offer center pieces, greenery, ribbon, stems, ornaments, santas, snowmen, elves, nativity sets and much more. Take a look at the video below to check out what Green Acres has to offer!
Green Acres is most famous for their Christmas trees, whether they are real, flocked or artificial. They receive their trees 24 hours after they have been cut so they don’t dry out, and they continue to care for the trees by keeping shaded and watered. At one time, Green Acres bought trees from Oregon and Washington, but no longer does that due to premature cutting and dryness. Can you believe that they will deliver it to your house too?!
