Any decent landscape contractor (including us) can do traditional landscapes. At Wichita Valley Nursery, we encourage our clients to take a more natural approach. Natural landscapes are designed with Native plants and exotic species that will naturalize in our particular environment. This type of landscape requires very little maintenance compared to traditional plantings. You will also find that our natural approach eliminates the need for fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides. Less plant death means less plants need replacing. All this equates to less time spent, less money spent, and more enjoyment outdoors.
Our priority is to deliver maximum beauty with minimum input. We do this using plants that are capable of surviving on rainfall alone. Once established these plants can grow without any irrigation and look great with just a little help during dry spells. The savings in water alone will pay you back for your investment over time.
We strive to produce most of our nursery stock ourselves. Each year we collect seed and make cuttings from plants found in the local area. We believe we can gain the advantage of having superior genetics by doing this. When we buy plants for resale we buy from from local growers in Texas and Oklahoma. We do not buy plants from Florida, California, or from large companies who mass produce plants. We are also proud to have many heirloom varieties that our friends have shared with us.
