Great lawn and landscaping information for Central Florida.
Knowing where to buy your plants is almost as important as knowing how to care for them after they're planted. Local nurseries and big box stores often carry the same popular species of plants, but how do they match up in terms of quality?
For many, the choice may come down to price, service, and convenience, but purchasing from our local nursery in Palmetto, FL has benefits that big box stores can't offer. See why buying from a local nursery is a better option for all your softscape needs versus going to a big box store!
Buying in bulk is a practice most big box stores follow, and it's the same when purchasing wholesale plants.

However, not all species of plants can be purchased in bulk, so it drastically limits the variety of softscape available for sale at big box stores. Local nurseries have the advantage of choosing their inventory and so will often carry more local or rarer species of plants.

Choosing a local nursery is a great way to support local business, and to buy locally grown plants that are adapted to our climate and conditions. Also, many plants for sale at big box stores are shipped from out of state and can suffer damage along the way, leading to unhealthy growth and even death.
Our huge selection, knowledgeable staff, and healthier locally grown plants make a trip to our nursery a better overall choice than a visit to a corporate retailer.
Most of the corporate “big box stores” sell thousands of items, and have a smaller “garden” section with minimal plant choices. Sure, they may look good on the shelf or pallet, but they often endure long shipping processes that can lead to a decline in plant health.
Our local nursery is dedicated to nurturing and growing a wide variety of locally grown plants that are already accustomed to our conditions. Our inventory is much larger than the one or two aisles you will browse at a national retail chain, giving you a better selection for choices, sizes, and plant species.
