Want to spruce up your garden gear with Michigan-made accessories that don't look like everyone else's garden tools? Well, head on over to Lake Leelanau and stop by
Jack of the Green
There you can find custom-designed garden accessories, including kneeler pads, aprons, tarps and a flower tote. All of the products are constructed of durable canvas and cotton.
Products at Jack of the Green are based on traditional English garden goods not readily available in the United States.
Owner Tracy John Brookfield was a hobby gardener in his hometown of Deal, England for 20 years before parlaying this passion into a career in Lake Leelanau more than 15 years ago. He still provides the garden and landscape design services that were the impetus for Jack of the Green.
The store is located at 461 Main Street and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
