Our Roots

The David Wilson Nursery began in 1981. David worked hard with a small amount of capital and a large dream to build a landscape design and build business. The addition of the cabin in 1984 was a monumental milestone in the growth of the business.

In this cabin grew ideas and plans that led to additional growth, a new partnership in 1993 and the garden center building in 1994.

The addition of the outdoor living area in 2013 has made room to host many non-profit events and bring the surrounding communities together.

“Frank and his crew did an outstanding job of redoing a water feature that another company messed up. We discussed what I wanted at various points during the work. They are knowledgeable about wildlife needs and made suggestions to improve the design. Can’t say enough good things about Willow Ridge.”
