Our HistoryOur evolution into LBI’s premier outdoor company
One of the first garden centers in the Long Beach Island area, Bay Avenue Plant Company was founded in the early 1990s. Originally located on Bay Avenue in Manahawkin, Bay Avenue became known as one of the premier nurseries and garden centers along the Jersey Shore.
The original garden center located on Bay Avenue is shown below:
Our family purchased the business in the early 2000’s and relocated to our current location in Surf City. The new location allowed us to expand our outdoor design business and provide better service to residents and homeowners on Long Beach Island.
In 2010, Tom Scangarello Jr. and his wife Jessica joined the company and have helped Bay Avenue grow into one of the leading providers of outdoor design services on Long Beach Island. Tom and Jessica have since started a family of their own on Long Beach Island, and continue the Scangarello family tradition of providing outstanding service and professionalism to our valued clients.

Deep Local Knowledge
The environment and eco-system of our barrier island is complex and unique. Creating lasting and healthy outdoor designs requires a deep understanding of the salty air, sandy soil, seasonal climate patterns and other environmental factors unique to LBI.
We are year-round residents of Long Beach Island, and our work reflects our family history and passion for life at the shore. For every project, we bring our 25+ years of hands-on experience planting and maintaining outdoor environments on LBI.
A Vision for the Future
Creativity and passion for outdoor design drives us to constantly improve our work. We believe that by bringing world class outdoor design to homes throughout Long Beach Island, we can continue to enhance the beauty and value of our community.
