Hoerr Nursery has a rich history whose roots stretch down deep within the Peoria community. For 90 years, garden enthusiasts and hobbyists have experienced our love and dedication for landscaping and gardening through our excellent products, outstanding service and knowledgeable staff.
As a family owned and operated company in Central Illinois, we have taken care to grow our business just as carefully as any of the plants we sell. Over the decades, we have concentrated in developing several areas of our business—as a plant nursery, sod grower, a garden center and a lawn & landscape service provider. That is why we have also grown to include a staff of landscape architects, horticulturalists, certified arborists, and Illinois Certified Nursery Professionals.
Nationally Recognized Garden Center
Today’s Garden Center Magazine has consistently recognized Hoerr Nursery as one of the “Most Revolutionary Garden Centers in the United States.” It confirms that we are an industry leader, not only in Peoria, not only in Central Illinois, but also across the entire nation. It shows that Hoerr Nursery is a name that can be trusted.
Hoerr Nursery Legacy
The Hoerr family name has a long history in Peoria. David August Hoerr, the son of German immigrants, began delivering topsoil in his truck and doing other landscaping jobs in 1926. During the Great Depression, this humble venture helped put food on the table. Nearly nine decades later, his modest company has turned into a multi-million dollar family business.
Today, the third generation Hoerr Family owns and operates about 400 acres of land in the Peoria area, which produce trees, plants and sod for homeowners across Central Illinois.
