The Landscaping and Gift Destination
United States Army Retiree Curtis “Curt” and Lisa Jaynes started Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping in 2003. As a full service nursery they also offer landscaping and gift destination. The nursery offers everything from yard art to plants including trees and shrubs. They also offer fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides. Garden Source specializes in native and xeriscape plants unusual pottery and outdoor décor. They have organic fertilizers and New Mexico grown plants and flowers. The Jaynes’ offer an on-site garden so the customer can see how plants and flowers grow in our area.
Curt and Lisa Jaynes, owners and operators of Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping came to the SBDC at Clovis Community College on March 10, 2006 a few years after the business had started. There initial intention was to grow and expand the business by purchasing land and constructing a building to develop a retail store for their nursery. With the assistance from the SBDC, Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping was able to prepare a business plan to help the company establish their own location and erect a new building that would liberate them from long-term lease agreements. Within six months Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping was able to finance their dream location, construct a building, and provide the Portales community with great products service.
Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping is making an impact on the Portales community and economy. They have gone from a small rented location to owning and operating on a half city block. The business has managed to increase sales repetitively even in the times of severe drought. Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping has been fostering relationships with its customers by informing and educating the customer on their Facebook page since November 19, 2011. Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping has maintained a 4.9 star rating with a following of 1,000 plus people. Curt and Lisa Jaynes pride themselves on being a community partner and giving back when the opportunity is at hand.
Garden Source Nursery and Landscaping plans to continue its growth as a business and community partner. They will continue to reach out to the SBDC for continuous assistance with general business planning and share their success story with those who may want to start a business in the future.
