About Us

  • Happy Life Front View


At Happy Life Gardens our mission is to help our customers succeed. Whether your success takes the form of a productive vegetable garden, a lush yard, a beautiful landscape or anything in between, we have the plants, the tools and the knowledge to help you get there.

Happy Life is located in Evans, Colorado and covers over three acres of land. Although our primary focus is our retail greenhouse and nursery we also offer a wide range of other products and services. Our garden center contains the hands-down, best chemicals and fertilizers (both traditional and organic) for your lawn and garden and our bulk landscape yard carries a wide variety of soils, rock and mulch.

In addition, we have one of the largest selections of pottery in Weld county along with a wide variety of statues and fountains for your lawn, garden or patio. Finally, the newest addition to Happy Life is the gift shop.


Happy Life has been a part of the Evans community for over 40 years, though not always under the same name. The greenhouse was originally opened in the early 1970's as 'The North Inch'. For almost 30 years The North Inch focused on providing the community with quality annuals, perennials and edibles.

After a change in ownership in 2001 the business name was changed to Happy Life Gardens. The next 12 years would see a great deal of expansion in products and services offered. Along with a larger variety of greenhouse and nursery stock, a full-service landscape yard was added after the acquisition of a few adjacent properties. It was also during the 2000s that the garden center, statuary and pottery lines were added.

In 2013 ownership of Happy Life again changed hands. Eddie and Melissa Maxwell finalized the transition on March 1st and opened for business on March 2nd. With a fresh perspective on the industry and a vision to see Happy Life become Weld County's premier greenhouse and garden center they jumped in and haven't looked back since.

  • Looking West


Happy Life has always been known for quality plants, helpful staff and a great selection of products. We are striving to improve those standards so that we can be sure we are offering our customers the very best in all we do. Along with the expansion of our garden center and the addition of the gift shop you can expect to see a much greater emphasis on our nursery stock such as trees, shrubs and grasses.

Another key area of our vision is to offer our customers the knowledge and resources to help them become more successful gardeners. Over the next few years we will continue to increase the number of classes offered at Happy Life; covering everything from container gardens to sod problems to backyard chickens. We will also be expanding our web and social media presence so that we can share more knowledge and offer our customers more ways to interact with us.

We look forward to growing with you!
