The Plot

Offering a variety of products and services – from heating and air conditioning to funeral services, family recipe barbecue sauces, furs and evening gowns – family-owned businesses are an integral part of the region’s landscape. With the area’s agricultural history and new trends in sustainable living, it should come as no surprise that Rolling Hills Garden Center has become a staple of the community.


Ray and Br​enda Moore turned a backyard retirement hobby into a thriving business, offering locals an array of trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, and vegetable plants, plus everything needed to start and maintain a beautiful garden. If they don’t have what you are looking for, the knowledgeable staff will do their best to get it for you. This is the true heart of a family-run, community-minded business.

The Seeds

Ray and Brenda are both the products of hard working farmers in Person County and are used to early mornings, long days, and seasonal changes. They pursued careers in banking for Ray and education for Brenda. In addition to her teaching duties, Brenda served as a coach in the Person County Schools system. During her career, she coached an All-American female basketball player who went on to enjoy successful college and WNBA careers. In the mid-1990s, she took her Person High School Rockets team to the state 4A basketball championship game.
