From a disgruntled landscaper...

Had to share this email from a colleague of mine:

"So last week I special ordered some Juniperis chinensis 'Spartan' for a client from a large and reputable nursery. $69.97 for 5 gallon trees about 4' tall.

Tonight at HD they have huge ones in decent shape for $26.88!! They're 3 feet wide and over 6 feet tall and would've totally matched the existing trees.

Bugs me that the real nursery don't have them in any size and any price but the orange guys have huge affordable ones.

There's a lesson in there someplace.

  1. I can certainly relate to that guy! For some projects I shop at HD first, at least for common plants to be used as fillers or background plants - some grasses, groundcovers, perennials.
