About Ripple Creek Nursery

Ripple Creek Nursery, Organics and Instant lawns is a family run Christian based business owned by Trevor and Sandy McLeod, established in 1998. Trevor, born in Rhodesia and Sandy – a Benoni girl, named the business Ripple Creek due to a small riverlet running through part of the property.

We bought a small lawn business in 1997 and looking to add value to it we established a “garden waste” drop zone at 78 Elm Rd, Benoni Agricultural Holdings in 1999 to assist all gardeners, garden services, the City Council and construction companies to dispose of their garden refuse and topsoil. This was the birth of the Organics Section run by Trevor, which has blossomed into a large operation producing quality wholesale compost, lawn dressing and soil products which is available for collection or delivery on the East Rand.

In 2000, the next addition to our business - a “farm-style nursery” was born. We decided to put up a shade net structure to house some plants. We purchased a variety of basic trees and shrubs and this was the beginning of the successful establishment we are today.

Our nursery, which is ROOTED IN FAITH, has grown from a supplementary addition to the instant lawn business and compost manufacturing over the past 17 years into a fully developed nursery housing all types of plants, trees and shrubs required for Highveld gardens. A large portion of our stock is home grown, using our own compost and soils, bearing testimony to the quality of our products. As a result, we are able to produce top quality plants at very competitive prices.

Gran Ruth McLeod – at the age of 70 was instrumental in the establishment of this successful nursery. Now at 87, she is still very active and runs a tight ship. The nursery staff have been well trained under her supervision and have great plant knowledge due to her incredible guidance.

The business has grown in all three aspects and has become well known on the East Rand. We take pride in the quality of all our products produced on the farm and the honest service we offer all our cliental.
