Meet Justin

The gates to the Green House Nursery opened over 7 years ago. 

It is a family-run business backed by more than 50 years of combined horticultural knowledge and experience. As owner and visionary, Justin Green learned his work ethics and his knowledge of plants while working as a young child mowing lawns and learning the nursery business with his Dad. It was his passion and interest that continued to grow, fulfilling his dream of owning his own Nursery business.

Working with Commercial and Residential Customers, Justin has mastered both the landscape and the hardscape business. His one-stop shop has become the largest retail nursery in Alachua County. Sitting on over 19 acres of land, you are sure to find something that suits your needs. From small garden projects to creating your outdoor paradise, our landscape professionals are here and ready to help you create your ultimate relaxation spot; with their knowledge, they can help design your project for you.

Skip Pinterest! Instead stop by and check out some of Justin’s unique art fixtures. While here stroll along the paths and see our wide variety of trees, shrubs, flowers, mulch, rock, pavers and much more.
