About Turner’s Nursery

The People

Turner’s Nursery was opened in 1967 by Stan and Bernice Turner as a greenhouse and garden center. We have expanded over the decades to include landscape and construction to suit the needs of the growing Ann Arbor community. Today, their 4 sons run the day to day operations along with a dedicated staff of committed and hard-working men and women. 

The Plants

Garden Center

Whether you are in need of mulch, topsoil, or rocks for a home improvement project, or have been working on your garden, we have everything you will need to create beautiful areas around your home.


We begin growing thousands of baby plants starting in February each year, most of which are ready to be taken home in April or May. Our staff is extra busy during these months, making sure the plants grow up happy and healthy!

The Projects

Residential Landscaping

Our landscape architect, Tom Bradley, joined Turner's in 1993. He has an exceptionally creative mind for planning and creating beautiful spaces for our clients. He is dedicated to working with you one-on-one to plan and transform your home landscape.

Commercial Landscaping

Everywhere you go in Ann Arbor, there is a touch of Turner's landscaping. Gas stations, grocery stores, hospitals, hotels, restaurants, and much of the University of Michigan campus has been landscaped by Turner's. Our company has been able to maintain contracts with many of these companies for decades.

“Born and raised in Ann Arbor and had never been to Turner’s until recently. Great staff and a wonderful selection! I will be buying my Mother’s Day gifts here this week!”
“We went in and bought two trees and six bushes, and then went back a week later to ask for some mulch. We arrived on a Saturday around 1:30, and they were able to deliver same day! Their plants are really high quality and the staff is extremely helpful and courteous. I will definitely continue to do business with Turner’s, and you should too!”
