Kind words from our previous clients:
Beach Ave., Atlantic Beach, FL
Troy and his team did an outstanding job on our landscaping project. We built a new home in 2013 and needed to install a rather large retaining wall to hold back the dune before we could install any plantings. We talked with many landscape companies and found Hickory Creek to be the most cost competitive. I worked very closely with Troy and Jessica to get the permitting process completed and found them to be extremely helpful and responsive in dealing with the City of Atlantic Beach. Jessica was also very accommodating and knowledgeable in helping us pick out our plantings. Troy laid out an excellent landscape plan with our plant selections and came out to our house to walk through it with me. The retaining wall turned out great and the plantings look awesome. It was a total transformation for our front yard and we’re so excited to enjoy the beautiful results of this project. It was a real pleasure working with the A-Team at Hickory Creek Nursery and I would highly recommend them for any landscape project.

From the first phone call, the site visit, the nursery visit, and installation, I am so pleased and satisfied with the outcome of Hickory Creek Nursery. Recommended by our electrician, I wasn’t sure what to expect; however, both Jessica and Troy were patient with our plant selection, questions, and concerns. You can definitely tell the benefit of working with someone who owns a nursery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the design outcome, layout, and joy in my eyes when I see the front of our home either coming or going. I can’t wait to see how our landscape grows over the years! Thank you!

Troy and his team from Hickory Creek Nursery transformed my entire yard!! They totally tore out all of the old plantings and weeds from the front and back yard (pool area). Trimmed exsisting Sagos and leveled beds. When I met with Troy I told him I wanted my pool area to be a “tropical paradise” and I couldn’t be happier!
In the pool area they installed Queen Palms, Brazilian Iris, Muhly grass, Variegated Ginger, Hawaiian Ty, Xanadu, Loropetalum and LED lighting. It looks fantastic!!
In the front yard they installed a Triple Pygmy date palm, Single Pygmy date palm, Brazilian Iris, Agapanthus, Variegated Ginger and LED lighting. It looks fantastic as well!!
From the time I spoke with Jessica and Troy I knew they were the Landscapers for me. They listened to what I wanted, gave me suggestions and really transformed my “wants” into a reality.
Troy has an excellent eye for what looks good and I let him do his thing. Even though he owns the company he was always right there working to make sure everything was perfect. His team is fantastic too. They have been with him for years and don’t miss a beat. Troy is one of the nicest guys I have ever done business with and really knows his stuff! I would use Hickory Creek Nursery again in a heartbeat. Their work is OUTSTANDING!!

After many years fighting with watering restrictions, mole crickets, chinch bugs and an aging irrigation system our lawn looked bad. So bad it could barely qualify as bad. We contacted Hickory Creek Nursery, who evaluated the disaster, drew up new landscaping plans and a new irrigation system. Four aging and bad looking river birches went away, the lawn was smoothed, topsoil added, and the crew went straight to work. We now have a great lawn, landscaping and an irrigation system which does what it should.
We now have neighbors, strangers and passer-bys who all compliment the look and effect of this work. The change is amazing, and makes the entire house/lot look new, fresh and appealing. The layout is superb, and the crew obviously is proud of what they do and how it is done. We are thoroughly impressed, and if we have any regret it would be over not having this done some years ago.
In April 2011 we hired Hickory Creek Nursery to design, landscape and install lighting in our front yard. The result was so spectacular we asked Troy in June to do the same with our backyard, where we had just built a pool, and to keep the expense within my budget. Imagine our surprise when in a matter of hours my backyard was transformed into a vibrant, flowing landscape using only 2 pallets of grass and mulch! An island was created among my shady oak trees so I would not have to worry about growing grass there.
Various bushes will provide color year round. Pathway lamps and spot lights transform my backyard into an evening respite where we enjoy time by the pool. We can highly recommend the service, attention to detail and regard for staying within our budget that Troy and his team afforded us.

Hickory Creek Nursery installed 4 pallets of St. Augustine Sod. They cleared and removed dead/damaged grass, prepped and smoothed new areas, inspected/adjusted irrigation system, replaced rotors and pop up spray heads where neeed for optimal spray coverage.Troy and his crew did a very professional job. The job was completed in less than a day. I am very satisfied and highly recommend this company for re-sodding of lawns and irrigation work.
Challen Ave. Jacksonville
Hickory Nursery removed front lawn and re sodded, also removed the entire front garden including hedges, plants, flowers and edging. They redesigned the shape of the garden and planted new plants, hedges and flowers that were more conducive to what we wanted to see and what grows well in this area. They removed bricks which were framing gardens on the side of the property as well and re-sodded that area. They removed about 1/2 of the lawn in the backyard and re sodded that area as well. They replanted some plants which were removed from the front garden to surround a red-bud tree in the backyard. They removed three trees in the backyard as well as replanted one to the side front of the yard.Hickory Creek also installed lighting throughout our backyard in areas that received no light. They also installed the timing box and educated us on the use to set the timer as needed. They verified our sprinklers were working properly and hitting the areas needed.
They laid chocolate mulch in all areas needed and cleaned the yard of any debris.
Troy, owner and operator of Hickory Creek Nursery came at the agreed time for a walk through to determine what work needed to be done. He scheduled his appointment for our convenience and was on time. Troy took the time to listen to what we wanted and gave suggestions. This was a big deal as we had other nurseries come out and give us drawings that did not even come close to the shape of the garden and whose plants were not close to what we wanted. We know nothing about plants or gardens but are very specific on what we wanted to see. Troy was nice and helpful, relaxed and knowledgeable. Later we met Troy at his nursery which was beautiful and I recommend anyone who is interested in Hickory Creek Nursery making the trip. At that meeting, the day before the job was to be done, we changed multiple plants. Troy was easy to work with and had no problem with our last minute changes. Troy’s crew along with troy showed up and did the scheduled work without issue. His crew was made up of a handful of really hard working good people. I felt very relaxed being home alone with them working all around the house. One of his employees has been friends with Troy since high school. I spent some time in the yard speaking to them and watching the changes take place. At one point I left the house to go to the gym, Troy made a couple decisions on boarder grass in the front garden that we had not decided on together. We decided to wait and put the boarder grass down in pots and see how it looked before deciding to use it. Troy took the liberty of planting the boarder grass…and I loved it. He has a great eye and knew exactly the look I was going for and knew at a glance, the boarder grass was needed. After the job was done we walked the grounds with Troy and loved everything we saw. They did a fantastic job! The next day the lighting that was installed did not work so I spoke with Troy over the phone and he offered to come right out and repair anything related to the lighting. He did as promised and the lighting is working great now!

We had an excellent experience! Troy, the owner, was great to work with as well as his crew. All work was done as scheduled, on time . The job was to remove old landscaping and design and install new plan including completely revamping drainage and sprinkler system. Again, the products and work were excellent and we ended up with a beautiful new yard. We would recommend them without question.
The job went very well, we selected our own plants and reviewed every detail of the plan. The team restructured the entire sprinkler system and drainage system to accommodate the new plan (much more work than we had anticipated) but did it “right”.
