Taylor’s Quality Landscape Supply and Nursery, Inc. originated in Lexington, SC in 2004 as a small pine straw distribution center (Taylor’s Pinestraw) by Gerrick Taylor, a football coach at a local high school. Before long, Gerrick acquired a small piece of property and added mulch and sod to his inventory, both available for pick-up or delivery. Gerrick was still looking to expand even further. He and his family, loving the lowcountry, moved to Bluffton, SC and established Taylor’s QLS, providing pine straw, mulch, rock, sand and gravel to contractors and the general public. Seeing a growing demand it wasn’t long and Taylor’s QLS developed a small nursery that is growing larger almost weekly.
At Taylor’s QLS we offer many different products and some services, such as delivery, installing palm trees, boulders and large trees that would require a tractor or large piece of equipment. Anyone staffed at Taylor’s QLS is always ready to give a helping hand from loading your vehicle with sod, pinestraw, rocks, or any of the materials we provide, to showing you around the nursery looking for that perfect tree, shrub or perennial.
Taylor’s QLS has been very fortunate and blessed to have many loyal and faithful customers and friends. We thank you all for your continued business and look forward to serving the Bluffton and surrounding areas for many years to come.
Zack has been with Taylor’s QLS since 2004. He relocated from the Lexington office in December 2012 to manage the Bluffton location. From ordering, receiving, and loading pine straw, rock, sand, gravel or mulch to delivering to your door Zack is the man that makes sure it all happens. Zack works well under pressure and keeps the back lot well organized year round. Taylor’s QLS is very grateful to have Zack in charge of operations.

Melanie Reeder – Nursery Specialist
Melanie has been with Taylor’s QLS since March 2013. She, too, is one of our amazing “plant ladies”. Melanie makes sure that each plant receives an adequate water supply and is pruned up and looking it’s best. She is always willing to walk around the nursery helping to pick out the perfect palm or to load a bucket of decorative stones. We are very glad to have such a devoted lady at Taylor’s QLS.
Celeste joined the Taylor’s QLS team in February 2014. Even with a small nursery a lot of attention to detail is required. Many labor hours go into stocking the rows of trees and shrubs and refilling the tables of colorful flowers and blossoming bushes. Celeste is ready to carefully get the trucks unloaded and get the new bounty on display. We are very fortunate to have Celeste at Taylor’s QLS.
