About Us


Richard’s Nursery was established in 1941, by Richard Polakovich, and has remained a family owned business for over 75 years.

Originally specializing in liners, we now grow a wide variety of container

          plants ranging from 3gal. to 30gal. 

Richard Polakovich began the business in 1941 with bedding liners and in the 1970′s, his sons Mike and Keith bought the family business and continued to offer their customers the same great customer service as their father.

As young men, Mike and Keith became very active in the community and began serving our community in multiple roles and the town of Forest Hill grew to become one of the largest suppliers of nursery plants in the United States. 

As leaders in the industry and leaders in the community, serving customers and serving the community with the highest of integrity became our way of life.  As we continue to grow and change the family business is being passed down to include the third generation of family members; from grandfather, to father, now to daughter and son. 

Today Mike, wife Inez, son Chris, and daughter Cathy Jo take great pride in the rich family history, community service and growing exceptional quality plants.

With the integrity once began with Richard Polakovich, the tradition lives on through his grandchildren.

If you are in the area, stop by and meet our family.
