Manuel Jimenez founded what would become Jimenez Nursery over a quarter century ago. Jimenez Landscaping as it was known, was comprised of a pickup truck, a lawnmower, and a passion for landscape design. Manuel was frequently asked to remove unwanted trees and shrubs from the various properties he serviced. Loathe to destroy these unique items or allow them to wither and die, he would haul them to an empty lot behind what was then the Bugatti shop on Padaro Lane and plant them there for a second chance at a valued life. Thus the origin of Jimenez Nursery. Over the years our family business has grown, becoming officially incorporated in 1994, and moving to our current location in 2003. Today we employ over 150 people and maintain cranes, equipment and a fleet of trucks that service properties throughout Southern California. We are a wholesale nursery providing unique, one of a kind specimen trees; and serving landscape contractors, landscape architects, and general contractors alike. In addition to supplying trees and shrubs to existing landscapes, we will design build custom landscapes. Since we are a vertically integrated landscaping operation, we are able to design and implement landscapes, perform complete installation, engineer drainage, irrigation, build custom masonry, and maintain the finished product. We are proud of our history, our custom service, and our unique product selection. Our nursery possesses a temperate Mediterranean climate ideal for growing a variety of trees, palms and shrubs. We specialize in large trees, 48” to 132” box size, many of which are unique field grown specimens. If you would like to visit the nursery please call during the week to schedule an appointment.
