BY Julie Carlson

Not too long ago, the Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters team bought an 11-acre, 100-year-old garden center in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania (just outside Philadelphia), renamed it Terrain at Styer’s, and set about transforming it into a concept store featuring planters, garden accoutrements, and accessories sourced locally and globally. Among the chic and rustic wares on offer: willow edgers, stone topiary finials, Nutscene garden twine, and a large assortment of vases and terrariums.
