Nursery & Landscaping

The landscaping division is where the business began in the early 1970s. Wayne Holden completed a landscape technology degree at Catawba Valley Community College on the G.I. Bill soon after serving in Vietnam. He had previous experience with farming and always had a green thumb. It made perfect sense to marry his knowledge with a NC Landscape Contractors License, and NC Plant Professional Certification. We have great pride in growing our business from the ground up. We landscape private homes, large apartment complexes, malls as well as other small and large scale public facilities.



At Sugar Mountain Nursery, we've been growing and providing quality plants since 1971. We focus on cultivating native flora and fostering sustainable practices that allow greenery to flourish. Beyond offering an extensive variety of plants, we offer brokerage and location services for any plants you require that we might not have. Our knowledgeable staff is dedicated to helping you find the best plants for your space and needs.


At Sugar Mountain Nursery, we take pride in being a family-owned business since 1971. With over 50 years of experience, we are Avery County's first landscape contractor. We strive to create a lasting relationship with our customers, focusing on native beauty designs and plants. Our skilled team of professionals is dedicated to bringing your outdoor dreams to life.
