What's a "Nursery" vs. a "Garden Center"?
Nurseries GROW plants .
Garden Centers BUY plants from nurseries.


Superior Nursery grows most of the the plants we sell at our Garden Center.


If their name includes "Nursery" ask them WHAT they grow!

NOT all Mulch is the same!


Premium Hardwood Bark Mulch

Where's it from?

Our premium mulch products are produced in Lancaster County, PA from locally harvested hardwood sources.  Hardwood mulch is what occurs naturally in our area. It's best for our regions plant types.


Why mulch?

As mulch biodegrades it adds nutrients to the soil, meaning less or no  need for fertilizers.


A 3" layer protects soil moisture, meaning less watering. It also make it hard for weed seeds to germinate and allows for easy pulling if they do.

Plus, we actually give you the volume you pay for.

Bottom line- Premium Double shredded MULCH saves YOU money, time and resources.
