Visited this place a couple of times in the spring, 1 year apart. Both times found the place to be in disrepair (broken old benching, muddy, uneven walkways, broken pots, piles of dead or dying plants, etc.)
Never went back.

Hmmm...Sorry after reading your reply it is possible that I was wrong and have my nurseries mixed up! I apologize if that is the case.

This is a very curious review, the rows in our nursery are mostly straight on a grid, with pea gravel river rock covering all areas and there is no mud, and there are no benches in the front except one concrete table with concrete benches that are not broken and not in disrepair. Our nursery stock is not near any "piles" of dead plants, if a plant dies and is pulled it may stay temporarily at the end of a row. But in spring, that is really not the case. And with our attentive staff and irrigation system, its only a tiny percentage of plants, and at peak season anything is moved out quickly.
Now you may accurately be describing our compost area way out back, outside of the retail area. We are a working nursery and landscape service, we do have an area with some stone, empty pots, and the large compost pile where plants removed from a landscape job would be put to compost. There is a broken bench there. After heavy rains, there can mud there, although we have very well drained sandy loam soil and mud does not last very long. Every single nursery in the world has one area like this.
