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.
