We do not plant in large blocks but prefer to break up our
plantings into single rows to avoid a monoculture environment.
Then by using the best cultivars and the diversification of
the plantings, we have virtually eliminated pesticide spraying.
We keep our weeds to a minimum with the in row grass strips
which we mow. Over time we have eliminated most weeds in and
around our nursery and have planted large laurel hedges on the
windward sides of the farm to help control weed seeds that may
blow in from adjacent fields. We find that by not over using
any chemicals our soil has better tilth. Therefore our trees
show better vitality, growth and vigor. In our mind, this is
much better for our customers and the end consumer..
We are a local family-owned and operated wholesale nursery
Our manager of 10 years, is also a local nurseryman with many years in
the business. As a team, we strive to produce superior products that we can
be proud to put our name on and to exceed the expectations of our customers.
Our farming techniques are vital to our success. We manage our soil with no
till in row grass strips and wide sod buffers in all headlands/roads.Bioswale catchment
basins virtually eliminate all erosion and protects the creek which transverses the
farm from contaminants.
