Bought all of my water-wise plants here for Long Beach’s great Lawn to Garden program. They had the best prices on all of the plants I was looking for—I compared the prices of five of the seven nurseries on the city’s list for the following: Palo Verde, sages, russelia, lavender, rosemary, elfin thyme, yarrow, Little John, several types of sedum, aeonium, aloe, russelia, asclepias, milkweed. The staff’s knowledge was excellent—I was given great alternative recommendations for plants that they didn’t have or couldn’t get, and was even talked out of a plant I wanted to get because it is difficult to keep alive. I was told it would be a waste of my money. They could have sold me a plant that would likely need to be replaced, so they’re passing up some easy money as far as I see it. I was shown pictures on the computer of what they didn’t have in stock, they ordered from their suppliers, then, to my delight, delivered beautiful specimens of everything the next day. I could care less about their lowbrow office. I care about healthy plants, knowledgeable employees, friendly people, fast and efficient service, and Ricardo’s hits the bull’s eye on all points. Plus they have a super friendly guard-kitty. It would be nice if they had more succulents, but they did order the ones I wanted that they didn’t have on the premises, and described the approximate size of the specimens so I knew what to expect. Love this family business!
True 5 stars. Reviews are true. Went there today and was met by exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. I was looking for a few different trees and found everything I needed at competitive pricing. I will go back.
I’m waaaay overdue on this review. Ricardo is wonderful, as is his office staff. His prices and selection are amazing, and he delivers to OC. My husband and I have purchased many plants from him, and we’re definitely going to continue to do so. Period! Don’t waste your money or your time at fussier locales, unless just you’re out looking for design inspiration. You won’t find a fancy garden here, just vast quantities of strong, healthy plants and friendly, knowledgable people. (And yes, he does water-wise landscaping, too.)Don’t walk, run to Ricardo’s. 5 stars. :-D
Hands down the best customer service I have received from any establishment in years. I was greeted as I exited my truck and was given a ride on a golf cart to select the items that I was looking for. The staff provided great suggestions based on pictures I provided. I will only purchase my plants from this place going forward.
Super knowledgeable staff, very friendly and easily accessible. They sold me all the plants I needed for my Long Beach Lawn to Garden program remodel and I came in under budget (and it looks great)!
