About Pound Ridge Nursery & Garden Center
Poundridge Nurseries was founded by Vincenzo Pasciuti, an Italian immigrant and small business owner in New Rochelle, New York. Pasciuti purchased the land that would become home to the nursery in 1924, and the business officially opened in its current location in the early 1940s. To date, four generations of Pasciuti's have worked at and run the nursery with Vincenzo's vision in mind.
In 2017, Poundridge Nurseries was bought and renamed Pound Ridge Nursery & Garden Center, Inc.
The Pound Ridge history.
Pound Ridge, New York was originally home to the Siwanoy and Kitchawong Indians, who planted, fished, and kept game in enclosures called "pounds" on various ridges in the area. Colonist settled in the 1640s and a town was established in 1788.
The land on which the nursery stands was once owned by Major Ebenezer Lockwood, the leader of the Pound Ridge Militia in the American Revolution who took part in a notorious raid by British Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton. Although much of the town was destroyed, two of the original buildings from this time all stand as our store and private home, both of which are now historic landmarks.
As we had heard from others, your supervision and installation were flawless and we would much recommend your involvement to anyone who wants a job done right the first time.
All the men who did the installation were pleasant, willing, and hardworking –even on a very hot and humid day. And the plant material is in beautiful condition. We look forward to being your customers for many years ahead.
L. AND B.S.
Over a period of several years, the landscape designers of Poundridge Nurseries have worked with me to establish and shape what is now a beautifully integrated landscape of yard, gardens, and woodland areas at my home in Darien. All in all, I couldn’t be happier with the quality of their work and my long-standing relationships with their designers.
