What started out as a small landscaping business has grown into an expansive nursery and garden center you see today. From the beginning, our goal is to help our customers create outdoor experiences that are extensions of their homes. Since that time we have diversified our business to what it is today:
The Nursery has tens of thousands of trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, bulbs and vines with many rare varieties you won’t find anywhere else. The Garden Center offers seasonal blooming and houseplants, plant and lawn care products, garden accessories and patio furniture, seasonal gifts for any occasion, and an experienced floral staff.
Seasonal gifts for any occasion and an experienced Floral staff. Our Landscape Department designs, installs and maintains functional, beautiful and award-winning landscapes and gardens. STIHL and TORO, the most dependable Power Equipment on the market today, are the brands we choose to carry and our Service Department is ready when you need it.
Despite the changes in the nursery and landscaping business throughout the years, Begick Nursery remains a family-oriented business. Back in 1950, brothers, Vernon (Jim) and Lester Begick, a registered landscape architect, started a small landscape operation on Westside Saginaw Road selling nursery plants. Paul and his nephew Jim Begick are the current owners. Paul is the younger brother of Vernon and Lester and joined the business in 1960 after graduating from MSU with a degree in horticulture. He is president of the company and oversees the operation of the business. Paul has over 50 year services with the company and is also involved in many community organizations and events.
Jim is Vernon’s son. Jim joined the business in 1969, graduating from Eastern Michigan University in 1975. He is a landscape architect and handles all the landscape design and general operation of the landscape division.
Throughout the year, Begick’s has a staff of 16 full time employees and in season, an additional 24 members. These are dedicated, hard-working people who are committed to bringing you the very best products and services that you deserve.
Thank you for your past support and we look forward to growing together with you in the future.
