Ivy Nursery offers design ideas, estimates, landscape contracting and planting. The scale of our work ranges from the smallest residential planting (only one or two plants) to large residential, commercial, and institutional planting projects.  We also plant and transplant large specimen trees.

George Carter, who has a Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia, and who founded and owns Ivy Nursery, is on site and is involved in every one of our planting projects, whether it is residential, commercial or institutional.

RESIDENTIAL PLANTING | Residential planting makes up the largest part of our work, and we are happy to help with design ideas and estimates. If a plan has already been done, we are glad to bid on those plans.

BIDDING | We regularly bid competitively for projects of all sizes and scales, and in forty years, we have never missed a deadline, never failed to complete a project, and never been in a dispute with a client.
