For over 150 years, Pacific Nurseries has offered personalized service, expert advice and an ever-growing selection of plants to Bay Area landscape trade professionals. As both a wholesale grower and a plant broker with over over 36 acres of inventory in three locations, their ground covers, grasses, water-wise shrubs, California natives and specimen trees provide everything from the ordinary to the exotic for trade professionals to create beautiful landscapes.
For over 15 years, we have served as their marketing partner to share their value online and turn it into a steady stream of prospects and customers looking for a Bay Area wholesale nursery. The result has delivered rising year-over-year revenue, an engaged community of landscape professional advocates, and an ever-increasing library of mobile-optimized content that attracts new website visitors and helps to convert them into sales-ready leads.
Pacific Nurseries has made significant investments in their facilities, operations and marketing communications to position their brand as a leading Bay Area provider of landscape plant material to the trade. In a business category that has little differentiation between competitors, outreach and engagement with prospects and customers has never been more important for survival and growth.
Pacific Nurseries has achieved success by providing highly personalized customer service, expanding plant and specimen capacity, integrating online ordering technology and providing well-organized facilities that make it easy for trade professionals to view, select and order plant material for a small order to a large installation.
By continually looking at the needs of the professional and responding with new services, customer focused education and specialized offerings, Pacific Nurseries has consistently grown their year-over-year sales. They’ve also become an essential resource that over 4000 landscape contractors, commercial developers, government organizations, schools, and retail nurseries rely on for their plant material needs.
