Saginaw Valley Nursery and Landscape Association

SVNLA was founded in 1947 by a group of local landscape and nursery professionals. The purpose of the association was: a) to promote good feelings and meetings of a special nature among local nursery and landscape professionals; b) to advertise to the customer the convenience and advantages of buying from members of this association; and, c) to prevent unfair pricing in local buying and selling. These basic principles still exist today. Since 1947, our association has grown to not only include landscapers and nursery professionals, but also includes landscape designers, landscape managers, and suppliers.

Our membership consists of a broad spectrum of professionals specializing in all areas of the Green Industry. Members range from the designer, who can take your ideas and combine them with their knowledge of color, form, texture to turn them into a vision for your plan, to our nursery growers that help even the novice do-it-yourselfer select the proper plant material for their specific needs. The landscape construction specialists can transform your terrain by adding boulders, bricks, plants, and water to create a wonderful and whimsical landscape. Our landscape managers do the fertilizing, spraying, pruning, lawn mowing and raking so you don't have to. This enables you to spend more time enjoying your outdoor living space. Last, but not least, are the landscape suppliers. Some specialize in tools or equipment sales and rental. The material suppliers can advise you in the selection of seed and fertilizer, pavers and blocks, soils and mulches.

Each of our members have their own special skills and experience or have the landscape supplies that are necessary to ensure that your outdoor living space is at the level of enjoyment you have always dreamed of. Call an SVNLA member for your landscape needs today. You will be glad you did!
