It takes a major incident to make me write a negative review on a business. I try to give folks latitude in providing a service. However, we hired Lavocat's to plant some pine trees in our rural yard. No care instructions were left with us as the crew prepared to leave. So I went out to speak with young Mr. Lavocat only to find he had left our job and his crew to carry on. One young man said, "just water them once a week and that should do it." After one winter they had experienced wind burn or desiccation. They looked horrible. In the spring, I was in contact with Don Jr. who was in charge of this project. His suggestions were to continue to water and fertilize them--"maybe they'll come back." He never came out to look at them and speak with us while we were home. I stressed to him that I wanted new trees. He also said it could be because of "salt from the road." Nope, even the trees planted on the "inside yard" nowhere near the road, had the same damage. I felt this was their error in not providing us with proper instructions and care. I wanted them to live up to their stated guarantee. They never came out to meet with us at home; Lavocats only communicated thru email and never lived up to the guarantee. Then, Dad Lavocat came out to see the trees, (without our permission). We had no idea he was coming out so therefore, we weren't home--we were at work. He proceeded to lay down fertilizer around the trees. Problem being, I had just done the same thing the night before!!! Now I have TOO MUCH fertilizer around the trees. I was told by young Mr. Lavocat, "my Dad wasn't concerned about the trees." Of course he wasn't, they aren't on his property, on a main road, nor did he waste good hard-earned money on them. These trees weren't cheap!! Moral of the story..plant them yourself or if you absolutely need to hire someone, hire a reputable company to earn their money. I was, and still am, terribly displeased.

I cannot help myself but must write a review of the Lavocat's Family Nursery. I'm continually blown away by how beautiful & healthy the plants & shrubs are year after year. They also have the most amazing display of unique plants. These flowers continue to flourish throughout the summer months long into the fall. I recieve endless compliments from not only friends but people around the neighborhood that stop by to say they are enjoying my gardens as well!! We can't wait for spring every year. The Lavocat's Family Nyrsery makes my heart sing time & time again. Also the Lavocat family is wonderful, they love what they do & it shows. It is such a pleasure to work with them. Not only are the flowers great but Donnie Jr. & his landscaping crew are amazing. They are professional young men & they treat your home with respect. They clean up after they are finished & you wouldn't know that they were even there except by the beauty left behind .

I have been a fan of Lavocat's for many years! Even though we moved out of the Williamsville area (many miles further south), I can't give up the Lavocat Nursery when spring rolls around. The quality of plants, caring staff and friendly atmosphere makes them number one! Just walking through the greenhouses and surrounding areas full of beauty makes your heart sing! Thanks for your dedication to provide such quality to your customers!

Terrific!! I've shopped there for years. Always found the highest quality plants and such a wide variety. Anxious to see the new varieties you come out with each year! Staff is always helpful.
Can't wait til next spring to get started again!

My garden club worked with Lavocat's in spring. We were able to get unusual/new cultivars not available at other nurseries. Prices were exceptionally good. While our club bulk purchase was relatively small, we were treated like A-1 customers. All plants purchased flourished. Nursery stock is exceptionally healthy/disease free. Planters beautiful & unusual.

The family members who work at Lavocat's Nursery & greenhouses offer the best personal service. Our church worked a fundraising voucher program through them. The fundraiser was very successful & the church members were thrilled at the quality of Lavocat's plant materials. Everything was ready to face Buffalo weather. I've always found them gracious and cheerful. This place offers both classics and designer plants - I really like them!
