Ransone's Nursery specializes in sand, gravel, top soil, rock, dirt, and rip rap to keep your property looking fresh and new.


Ransone's Nursery specializes in designing, installing, and maintaining beautiful and effective living shorelines that protect your property from erosion while enhancing the natural beauty of your waterfront.

Our living shoreline systems use a combination of native plants, natural materials (rocks & sand), and innovative engineering techniques to provide a long-term, sustainable solution to shoreline erosion. By utilizing natural materials, we are able to create a beautiful and functional shoreline that blends seamlessly into the surrounding environment. Unlike traditional bulkheads or riprap revetments, living shorelines are Virginia's new nature based approach for stabilization and shoreline protection.  

Our experienced team works closely with property owners to design living shoreline systems that meet their specific waterfront needs. We take into account factors such as exposure, water depth, and existing vegetation to create a customized solution that is both effective and beautiful.

If you are looking for a sustainable, effective, and beautiful solution to shoreline erosion, Ransone's would love to help you consider a living shoreline. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help protect your property and enhance its natural beauty.

Ransone's Nursery is also proud to partner with Environmental Concern in St. Michaels, MD to provide the Marsh Grass plants that are integral to installing living shorelines. Ransone's Nursery has a stocked inventory of Spartina Alterniflora (Smooth CordGrass) and Spartina Patens (Salt Meadow Hay). These Marsh grasses are available for purchase at Ransone's Nursery in Weems, VA.
