Custom contract growing allows growers like American Native Plants to suit a wide variety of needs for wholesale customers. Through this process, wholesale customers can pre-select native plants for their property to meet their needs and plant requirements. Through contract growing, you can find peace of mind in knowing your large quantities of native plants or hard-to-find species are being grown to suit all your needs. Not only does this ensure the plants you need are available, but it also helps you find cost-effective and appropriate solutions for growing native plants that will benefit your local ecosystem and bring plenty of beauty to your gardens, commercial properties, or elsewhere! If you’re designing a native plant garden that will feature rare or hard-to-find plants, or you’ll simply need a large number of plants for expansive gardens or properties, contract growing may be right for you.

Why Contract?

When you rely on a native plant professional for your contract needs, you can be certain that you will get a high-quality product that has been grown to suit your particular needs, budget, and deadline. Working with a grower like American Native Plants can help you pinpoint a delivery date that works for you and your project’s schedule while helping you maintain any and all plants for your project. When you can count on cost-effective solutions within your budget, your landscape designer can design gardens confidently, allowing you to keep your project organized from the earliest planning stages. This can also help ensure uniformity across commercial properties and give you access to a broader catalog of available plants for your contract needs. There are plenty of benefits to contract growing as opposed to wholesale shopping if you need native plants in large quantities or rare varieties.

Is Contract Growing Right for You?

Whereas wholesale plant shopping is a great way to populate your home’s garden or landscaping with lush native plants that can help your local ecosystem, contract growing is a solution that can help property developers, landscaping contractors, municipalities, or other large property owners access native plants for other types of properties. For example, contract growing is a great way to fill your commercial landscaping with beautiful (and beneficial) native plants. If you own or manage any number of large, municipal, or commercial properties, contract growing through American Native Plants may be the perfect solution for your landscaping.
