McCarey’s Landscaping Inc.

Founded in 1993, McCarey’s Landscaping Inc. is one of the top landscaping providers in the state of New York. They are also one of the few VENDEX certified businesses in New York City.

Today, McCarey’s is well known in the industry for their end-to-end capabilities. Their expertise spans all types of landscaping projects including commercial, private, municipal, NYSDOT, state and federal, and residential.


Why McCarey’s needed a better alternative for sourcing wholesale plants in New York

McCarey’s routinely undertook urban infrastructure projects such as installations along highways or public outdoor spaces. Staying true to their timelines and delivery commitments was very important to them.

However, frequent changes to delivery schedules and too many last-minute substitutions by suppliers made it difficult to complete projects as per their plans. McCarey’s needed an easier and more reliable way to source all their plants in one go.

Top challenges for McCarey’s:

  • 1

    Sourcing and getting approvals for a large quantity of caliper trees

  • 2

    Unpredictable delivery schedules from existing suppliers

  • 3

    Plant substitutions needing new approvals which impacted timelines
