Cecil & Katherine Williams started Williams Nursery (Now Brownswood Nursery) in the late 1960’s in their backyard off of Folly Road on James Island. Mr. Williams’ middle daughter Terre Stevens joined them there and together began to sell & grow a wide range of plants. They sold fruit trees & grew a large line of Azaleas. As demand grew for their quality plants, they decided they needed more room. So together in 1978, Brownswood Nursery™ was established at 1290 Brownswood Road, Johns Island. In the 90's Wyatt Stevens (Terre's Husband) began the landscape maintenance & installation division. Over 20 years later Terre’s eldest son Ryan Watkins joins the team as the third generation in this successful family business. January 2015 after graduating from Clemson University with a horticulture degree, Drew Stevens, joins the team and now serves as the installation manager. Brownswood Nursery™ is one of Charleston's largest & oldest landscape grower, designer, & installer. Our nursery is open for both residential and wholesale customers. Brownswood has developed approximately 20 acres of its sprawling acreage for the Garden Center, Growing Operation, Design Studio, & Installation Division.
