""Classic Nursery & Landscape/Alan Burke completed a landscape project for our Seattle home and we couldn't be happier with the result! My husband and I highly recommend them and we plan on using their services in the future. Here are some of the highlights from our experience and why we suggest using them: - Amazing communication and professionalism throughout the entire project - Highly qualified team of people who work for Classic. Everyone we interacted with was awesome. From the owner Alan, the Landscape Designer, the folks at the nursery who select the plants and the crew who execute the project -- all very talented, customer service focused and hard working folks. - Attention to detail and respect for our property. I was consistently impressed by how clean they left the work site. Every day upon completion the crew cleaned up and made sure there wasn't debris all over the sidewalk etc. - The end result is gorgeous! All the neighbors stopped to look and comment on our new landscaping and accused us of raising their property taxes because it looks so darn good! - Three months later and the new plants and new sod are very healthy and thriving! ... - The owner Alan was very attentive to our project throughout and when the project completed he did a walk-thru with me to tell me all the things about my new plants. He has been very responsive to questions once the project completed as well. - The Classic Nursery is awesome and the folks who work there are so knowledgeable and helpful! You'd be crazy not to use Classic Nursery and Landscape!! ""

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.
