Nature’s Best started out in 1995 as a small mowing & maintenance operation. Jerry & Carrie Trageser, with their background in the nursery business, built their first greenhouse just one year later, and by 1998 their full service landscape division was created.
In 2010 Jerry and Carrie closed their existing retail nursery, The Sage Gardener, and their previous greenhouses in order to purchase a larger facility where all of the company divisions could be in one location. Today with over 40 greenhouses on 18 acres, they grow quality annuals, perennials, groundcovers, ornamental grasses, trees and shrubs. In 2011 Nature’s Best Wholesale and Retail Nurseries opened for business. The Garden Center showcases the company's diverse plants and inspirational landscape ideas.
