Serving the North Shore
It all started in 1917
Chalet is deep-rooted in history as a third-generation, family-owned, local business serving the North Shore for over 100 years. From our humble beginnings as a self-started yard care business by L.J. Thalmann, we have grown to incorporate multiple divisions, increasing the Chalet offerings. The expansion of our Landscape Division and the addition of the Chalet Farm are just a few of the transformations that have helped shape Chalet.
Now + Future
Today, Chalet is the North Shore’s leading one stop destination for inspired landscape design, classically fresh products, curated home decor and customer service that creates lifelong connections.
Season after season, from generation to generation, Chalet works with people to discover fresh, imaginative ways to design their outdoor space, create inviting, inspired homes; and grow a personal connection between design and nature.
Chalet has been recognized by our industry nationwide. We were named "Innovator of the Year" by the Garden Center magazine, and in 2019 received a Special Recognition in Retail Sales Award from the Perennial Plant Association (PPA). According to the PPA, Chalet was chosen for its “deep impact in the perennial plant community”, including its efforts to educate consumers about perennial plants and help elevate the perennial plant industry as a whole.
