Puget Sound Landscaping started its first successful nursery 18 years ago in Northeast Olympia. Through a corporate division, a second nursery (The Plant Place) was established in December 2002 at a new site south of the Olympia Airport. In the Spring of 2013, a new Retail Lot opened in the South Bay area. Designed and intended originally to provide plant material for our own use, we have worked hard to set up our facility to serve our retail and wholesale customers. We have a sufficient inventory and quality to provide plants to the industry. We ship trees and shrubs to locations outside the Olympia area. For further information, see Deliveries on the Wholesale page.
