Welcome to Pierson Nurseries
Our nursery now consists of over 50 acres of field, 10 acres of B&B holding area, 6 acres for wetland production and an 12 acres of container area, all under irrigation. Native and wetland plants are now one third to one half of all plant sales due to their increased role in all landscapes.

We updated our irrigation setup and began to install drip irrigation on all our field grown material.
