James River Nurseries was proud to be selected landscape and hardscape contractor for University of Richmond's Queally Athletic Center.  Connected to the repurposed Millhiser Gym, this new complex will double as the new backetball practice facility for the Spiders as well as a student well-being center.

The buliding, named for 1986 alumni Paul and Anne-Marie Queally, who donated the lead gift (7.5 million) to launch the fundraising efforts for the new facility, will include a training room, strength and conditioning areas, full-size practice gym, coaches' offices, academic support area, team locker rooms and a Spider Heritage Hall that celebrates the tradition of UR athletics.

At James River Nurseries, we consider it both an honor and a privilege to be invited to work on so many great projects at the University of Richmond, and working on the Queally Athletic Center was another reminder of just how special the campus is.  With the Gothic architecture and manicured grounds, it's no wonder UR consistently ranks among the most beautiful college campuses in America (#1 in this year's Princeton Review).


James River Nurseries was proud to be selected landscape contractor for the newly constructed nursing school building at Randolph-Macon College.  Dubbed Payne Hall, in honor of C. Ladell Payne, former president of R-MC, and Haywood A. Payne, R-MC alumnus ('68), and Trustee Emeritus, this new, state-of-the art facility will provide a space for both discipline specific as well as interdisciplinary learning opportunities.

Payne Hall will include a simulation center designed to replicate complex patient care situations; a technology-enhanced classroom to support students' development of clinical judgement; and dedicated laboratories for health assessment, nursing skills, and delivery care in a home environment.

At James River Nurseries we appreciate and respect the important role nurses play in maintaining a strong and healthy community, and wish only the very best for all those who will be studying in the new Payne Hall and thank them in advance for their service!

At James River Nurseries our business centers around creating beautiful outdoor spaces.  

One feature we sometimes use to create visual interest is the timeless pergola.  Providing both form and function, pergolas not only add dimension and visual interest to an outdoor space, but are great for defining areas for sitting, entertaining, dining or grilling.  And who doesn't love and enjoy the light shade they cast on a hot summer day.

Pergolas can be designed for specific needs and locations, making them ideal for a variety of outdoor settings.

If you are looking to add beauty and character to your yard, you might want to consider a pergola.
