With the purchase of Wise Nurseries' retail garden center in Statesboro, Brian Powell has expanded his landscaping company, Statesboro Southern Scapes Inc., to include a retail location, and also intends to make landscape design services a larger part of the business. As of Jan. 1, the Highway 80 East site, which includes a small store and irrigated outdoor growing spaces outfitted variously for sun-loving and shade-needing plants, became Southern Scapes Nursery. Powell bought the garden center from Wise Nurseries owner Matthew Wise, who had operated it since 2004.
