Choosing the right landscaping supply store often means thinking outside the box. You have to stop thinking like a regular consumer and start thinking like a person about to take on a job and who wants to save some cash. There are many landscaping supply stores out there but only a few of them are worth visiting and these are not the ones that you see the ads for on TV.
The landscaping supply stores that you want to buy your materials from are the ones that cater primarily to those in the industry. If you can get your landscaping materials from a landscaping supply store that does not usually sell to the general public, or at least is not well known by the general public then you are in business. This can take some work though.
Sometimes local professionals will tell you who their supplier is. A better way to locate a great supplier is to walk around your neighborhood and find a beautiful yard. Strike up a conversation with your neighbor and ask if they know of a good supplier. If you’re local to West Michigan, check out nurseries in the West Olive area. You can usually find great sales a couple of times per year. Finding a good supplier save you hundreds of dollars on your small project supplies.
