Environmental Information

"I could not be more pleased with the work that Alan's company has done in completely transforming the backyard of my town home from an overgrown, plant-filled, unusable space -- to two separate levels of paved patios below my deck -- one level with a beautiful fire pit and the second with a lovely water feature that feels zen-like. Where before we only looked down at the plants, now we are drawn down there -- and it feels wonderful to have taken a smallish backyard area and expanded so that it is not only usable, but also just makes you want to go down and sit and enjoy! Alan's team (led by Hugo and Ken) could not have been more professional. They were always on time, very courteous, did a thorough clean-up at the end of each day, and I'll even say, artists in their own right. Ken's work in building the fire pit was detailed and finished perfectly. He worked on it like it was his own... I couldn't be more happy with the finished result -- it FAR exceeds my expectations!!! To Alan and his team, a big thank you!" Coby S. (Fall 2015)"

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.
