Welcome to The Plantsmen Nursery

We are located just outside Ithaca, New York in the Finger Lakes Region.  On our website you will find separate pages explaining more about who we are and what we do.  If you take a few minutes to click through some of the pages, you’ll see how we are different from other retail nurseries and landscape companies in the area. Some examples include: locally grown plants of old-fashioned high quality; healthy, pesticide-free nursery and landscape practices; complete customized and creative landscape services from design to installation; exceptional and friendly service from our staff, a great group of people; and natural display gardens on our peaceful, accessible nursery property. 

We're family owned, family friendly, and we enjoy giving back to the community with donations, plants and our time.

ABOUT US

We combine extensive professional nursery and landscape experience with real, progressive environmental practices. We work to balance many common, modern garden and landscape goals:  deer resistance, pollinator and habitat value, realistic functional needs such as privacy and convenience, as well as the desire for beauty and added value at home.

RETAIL NURSERY

We offer clean, robust plants in a

spray-free environment.  This means no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or other chemical applications often used in plant production.  We grow and sell everything including organic veggie starts, shrubs,  trees, ferns, perennials, deer-resistant plants, vines, shrubs, ornamental grasses, edible perennials, and the greatest diversity of native plants found in NY. 

EVENTS & TALKS

We are involved with many events including the Ithaca Native Landscape Symposium (founded by The Plantsmen) All original photos & ideas, Dan's presentations are based on horticulture & our ecology with unique perspectives on sustainable nursery and landscape practices.  The overall aim is to articulate the voice of native plants calling to us from their habitats, in the real world.

DESIGN & BUILD

We have a dedicated design staff that will help you create your dream landscape! Design site plans are a valuable tool for conveying ideas in a visual format to our clients. Our fees for design drawings are modest when compared to what landscape designers charge.  That's because for us, the drawing is not the final product, or even our main product.

MAINTENANCE

All landscapes benefit from some maintenance.  There is no such thing as a no-maintenance landscape!  Low-maintenance is more accurate, and that's our goal.  We see two common scenarios where landscapes need maintenance.  First, new landscapes, where plants need time to grow in, establish and take up the space allocated to them in a thoughtful landscape plan.

HARDSCAPING

Living in an area as geologically exciting as the Finger Lakes, we prefer to use natural stone & wood in most landscapes.  However, we are comfortable working with the widest range of stone and wood materials on all types of stone projects including walls, patios,pathways, stairs, raised beds and more.  We also use local locust wood for many types of landscape projects.
