Nursery will continue to offer landscape consulting and maintenance.
SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. -- After more than 30 years in business, Matterhorn Nursery has closed its doors.
The 34-acre nursery in Spring Valley, New York has been the winner of many industry awards, and was well-loved in the gardening community. It closed abruptly in mid-April.
The nursery held an auction April 28 through May 1, selling everything from windows and bike racks to paintings and fountains.
Matterhorn owners Matt and Ronnie Horn filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2010 after the Town of Ramapo pulled out of a deal to purchase 15 acres of Matterhorn's land.
The nursery plans to continue offering landscape consulting and maintenance services.
In 2003, Matterhorn was featured in Garden Center as an Innovator Award winner.
In a message on the nursery's website, founders Ronnie and Matt Horn said, "Words cannot express our thanks. Our customers have sustained us, especially these last years. We are so grateful for your patronage, support, and kind words."
