James River Nurseries, a leading residential landscape & hardscape contractor, has been serving Richmond, Va. and the surrounding counties for 35 years.  With loads of experience and a reputation for being dependable, homeowners from across the region hire us to transform their outdoor space.  

Check out this short video to see one such transformation.


James River Nurseries recently completed landscaping for the newest Hardywood facility, or what we call a beer lover's paradise.  Located on 24-acres along Tuckahoe Creek, just miles from Short Pump, and in the heart of West Creek, this new $28M brewing facility and beer campus is the brain child of lifelong friends Eric McKay and Patrick Murtaugh, owners of Hardywood. 

And wow, what an idea they had!  You should definitely put a visit to Hardywood West Creek on your calendar.  Not only will you be treated to their award winning craft beer (they have earned international acclaim with medals at the World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival, as well as a rare 100 rating by BeerAdvocate Magazine), but you'll see first hand how their vision for a destination brewery in a bucolic setting has been brought to life.

Check out just of the few of the sights from our time on the project.


As a leading landscape/hardscape contractor in Central Virginia, we can confidently say our work is on display every day!  Just take a look:

At James River Nurseries, we believe we work with some of the best builders and developers this town has to offer.  The 2017 MAME Awards banquet, put by the Home Building Association of Richmond's Sales & Marketing Council (SMC), confirmed our belief.

The SMC recently released the names of the winners, and wow, did our clients bring home the hardware!  Way to go guys!

As a leading landscape contractor in Central Virginia, we have the opportunity to work with many talented developers.  A recent project, James River at Stony Point, an upscale apartment community, was no exception.

Wood Partners, developer and general contractor on the project, is a national Real Estate development, construction, acquisition and management company that has been involved in the development of more than 53,000 homes with a combined value of more than 8.3 billion.

James River at Stony Point was our first experience working with Wood Partners and we have to say, they represented the epitome of professionalism.  They were organized, open with their communications, decisive, and attentive to detail.  We'd like to thank Dean Bateson & Jay Nestleroad, employees of Wood Partners (and our points of contact on the project), for making us feel like a valued member of their team while we worked to help bring the company's vision for a successful project to life.

James River Nurseries would like to wish Wood Partners all the best for continued success and growth in Central Virginia and would certainly welcome the opportunity to work with this talented group again in the future.
