In 1973 Clarkson Greenhouse changed from a wholesale operation to a retail business and changed its name to Clargreen gardens. After over 80 years of operation it closed its doors on December 15th 2001. Clargreen gardens landscaping division is now part of Butterfly Landscaping Corporation which is located on 2243 Dunwin Drive. (Information taken from Kathleen Hick's Clarkson book).
