Birdhouse Garden Market Inc.

Owned and operated by Christina and Bernard Bird, the Birdhouse Garden Market is Lake Melville’s premiere florist and garden centre.


Owned and operated by Christina and Bernard Bird, the Birdhouse Garden Market is Lake Melville’s premier florist and garden centre. They also recently added landscaping services and leisure products including Arctic Spa hot tubs, saunas, steam showers, walk-in baths, massage chairs, and billiard tables.

A business that has quickly become a one-stop-shop for garden products since its opening in December 2007, the Birdhouse employs four to five full-time and 20 seasonal workers. As an expanding business, the Birdhouse has faced challenges in staffing and market development and continues to explore strategies of how to grow at the right pace.

Despite these challenges, the Birdhouse remains proud of acquiring the business and believes that moving back to Labrador to establish and successfully operate a business has been a rewarding experience.


Both Bernard and Christina are active community members and, as animal lovers, focus much of the company’s fundraising efforts toward the local SPCA. Bernard has helped coach the local high school volleyball team, remains active with a local volleyball group, and also works at the local Lawrence O’Brien Arts Center as a technician. Christina is a past member of the Rotary Club and contributes to the CBC Radio show “Gardening Crosstalk.”

The Birdhouse continues to identify its growth opportunities and has expanded to offer its customers a variety of quality products and services. Known for its superb service and friendly atmosphere, the Birdhouse shines as a benchmark for customer service in Central Labrador.
