Our native plant nursery is dedicated to supporting conservation, preservation and ecological restoration in our community.
More than 25 years ago, the owner of Garden Environments entered the landscape design and installation industry to create realistic ideas and designs for customers in the Durham, North Carolina area. Garden Environments has since mastered the art of balancing ecological restoration and native species into everyday landscapes and gardens of all shapes and sizes.
In looking for high-quality nursery stock and native plant species for his customers’ landscape and garden installations, we came to acquire Deep Roots Natives. The shared vision of sustainability practices that focus on native and pollinator plants’ ability to benefit the environment and our customers’ lives was the perfect fit.
We’re excited to give locals access to a native plant nursery and help our customers become part of the movement to bring native plants to the forefront of landscaping and gardening projects. Many plant species we offer cannot be found anywhere else nearby, and we can also offer helpful advice to any customer who asks.
As a highly recommended native plant nursery with both the NC Native Plant Society and the New Hope Audubon Society, we are in the unique position to offer the average homeowner access to a wide selection of native plants and nativars. We even offer options to help customers with tight budgets through volume discounts, payment installations, discounted stock, etc.
In a world where we have become so disconnected from our surroundings and each other, plants give us the opportunity to connect with our unique environment and the people we share it with. Native plants present us with a tactile, beautiful and ever-changing way to interact and engage with the past, present and future of spaces as small as our backyards or as large as an entire continent.
Caring for plants — living, ephemeral things — can be a shared language between types of people who may seem to have little to talk about otherwise. We have found that growing a garden brings out a tenderness in people that is so often missing in today’s social interactions, and as a native plant nursery, we aim to be a valuable resource in bringing those opportunities to our community.
