At Almost Eden,
we understand that nobody can do as
good of a job as God did the first time around. Thus it is
our desire to harness the creative talents and available knowledge
that God has provided us to give you the next best thing.
Let Almost Eden
create a little slice of heaven in your own back
front yard or wherever you need it most.
Landscaping is more than planting and mulching, it is about
painting a picture with plants. It's about taking your vision,
and making it a reality. It's about providing you with more
usable space in your outdoor world. It's about creating spots
to stop and linger, spots to be renewed, places to recharge
your batteries and fill your senses.
We are excited to witness the miracle of God's creation each
day, each season, each year. Working with plants and using
them as tools to bring people joy is our way of making the
world a better place. We enjoy taking what you have and turning
it into what you want.
Almost Eden Nursery was planted
as a tree farm in the early 80s by a dedicated soul,
who really knew how to grow trees. The trees
grew so well, in fact, that he wasn't able to relocate them
all before they began to grow together. When we acquired the
land in 1999, it was 11 acres of sadly overgrown trees, many
of which needed to be removed, or sacrificed so that others
may continue to grow. After years of playing "the lifeboat
game" with these enormous trees, we are ready to replant
and expand our production to include plants that are easier
to handle and better suited for today's smaller residential
Many of the original trees still grace the nursery such as
our majestic stand of eastern white pine through which the
driveway leading to our residence now winds or the elegant
"Gray Birch Garden" one of the most popular places
for a photo shoot. Currently under construction for 2004 is
what we call "Large Tree Lane" — a collection
of large scale estate size trees for display purposes. The
beautiful old glories serve as a reminder to those who think
about planting one in a space of insufficient size... Plants
are like puppies—they're cute when they're little,
but what do you do with them when they grow up?!?
