The Garden Center is a shop on Main Street that appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Its proprietor is a sloth named Leif. At the Garden Center, the player can buy flowers, tree saplings, bamboo seeds, and tools related to the tending and maintenance of plants, such as axes, fertilizer, and watering cans.
Unlocking & Upgrading
In order to build and have access to the Garden Center, the player must have performed at least thirty gardening actions, such as watering flowers, planting saplings, bushes, fruit and flowers, and pulling weeds, and the town must have been around for 5 days. Upon completing these requirements, the shop will begin construction. The initial Garden Center sells two flower seeds, a sapling and a tool.
After Super T&T upgrades into T.I.Y., the general store and the Garden Center will merge into one large building with two separate entrances, similar to a strip mall. At this point, Leif will begin to sell an expanded selection of gardening goods and offer a weed-pulling service to the player. Upon the T.I.Y.'s upgrade to T&T Emporium, the Garden Center's door will be removed, and the center will be incorporated into the first room of the store.

- The flower on the door is identical to Olimar's flower in Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- During Weeding Day, the Garden Center is closed because Leif hosts the event in the Plaza on that day. Interestingly, if a player goes to the garden store before it would usually open, the sign will still say that it will open at the usual time.
