Q: Is TGU a Retail Nursery?
A: TGU is primarily a wholesale nursery but we are open to retail at TGU Richmond every operating day and on Saturday at our Memorial location. Unlike Retail nurseries that have plenty staff to assist you, we have limited staff and the priority is service contractors. If time allows we love to assist you, but, please know our wholesale clients do receive service priority.

Q: Is your product consistent and always the same?
A: Our products are consistent but not always the same. Products may have different moisture contents depending on the season, amount of precipitation, atmosphere conditions. Our products may also differ based on the intake of C:N. Gravels may also differ based on where the product is mined from and natural stone will also have color variations depending on the layers of product extracted from the ground.
Q: Can you advise me on how to use TGU products?
A: We are happy to make suggestions on how to use TGU products. However, our staff will only make suggestions. We highly recommend you contact a landscaping professional for technical questions.
