Why buy at  Avant?

Avant Gardening & Landscaping specializes in plants that gardeners and landscapers love. Our perennials are sold in larger sizes such as 1 and 2 gal pots. We have a popular selection of shrubs, evergreens and trees. In spring we offer vegetable seedlings, annuals, potting mixes, compost and organic soil amendments.

As landscape designers it’s our business to create specialty plant combinations for pollinators, rain gardens, and seasonal displays. We’re making these combinations available to our retail shoppers by pre-selecting and showcasing these mixes throughout our nursery. Whether you are looking for a mix for birds and butterflies, easy care natives, herbs for your kitchen, pond plants, or containers – we’ve got you covered! Our plants are cared for by a staff of professional horticulturist. We use organic gardening methods and integrated pest management to reduce the need for chemical insecticides and herbicides.

Above and beyond our plants we offer personalized service and advice for all your landscaping needs. Design, delivery and planting services are available.
