Educational Nursery Tours

Before any substantial landscape installation, clients are strongly encouraged to take an Educational Nursery Tour with owner, Virginia-certified horticulturist and landscape designer Jeff Cartwright.

Touring a nursery is an integral part of Cartwright Landscaping’s design process. Both you and Jeff will gain a full appreciation of what is wanted in each landscape – eliminating guesswork and avoiding mistakes – which keeps the design process as efficient and streamlined as possible.

Tour Overview

As you walk the grounds of the area’s largest nursery, you can see the wide array of shrubs, trees, ground covers and flowers that thrive in Richmond’s climate, and understand what will work well in your yard.

You’ll gain design ideas and insights into your landscaping options, and discuss the conditions necessary to maintain plant and tree health, all of which will be applied while creating your personal landscape design.

Following the tour, you’ll receive photos and descriptions of plantings you admired, with suggestions for additional plants for full sun, full shade or somewhere in between.
