"Alan - Josh was just here Monday and Tuesday to complete the Landscape Lighting for our Landscape Remodel. I was out babysitting for the day then had dinner out with friends and didn’t get a chance to thank him for the fabulous job he did. We returned home late last evening to be welcomed by all the exterior lighting that he completed. Surprisingly he was also able to connect our already installed walkway lighting to the new timer. Rather than arriving home in the dark and fumbling for house keys we had beautiful lighting to get us in the door. Josh did a terrific job! The lighting added a touch of drama to our already fabulous new patio and landscaping. Thanks Alan for the great job Wan-Chi, Jeff, Josh and the rest of your crew did to transform the exterior of our home. With much thanks, D&A AXXXX (Please pass this onto Josh😊)"

As you probably know by now, at Classic Nursery & Landscape Company we are committed to the environment. Concern for the environment has created an interest in the use of native plants in home landscaping. When plants are put into a situation that mimics their native growing conditions they establish faster, tend to have less need for water, and typically experience fewer problems with disease & insects than introduced species. These low maintenance plants also provide wonderful food & cover for birds & wildlife.
