Robert Tjebbes took over a run-down nursery on Naarderstraat in Huizen, North Holland, in 1977. He named it ‘De Limieten’ (literally translated as ‘the Maximum’) after the area bordering the cities of Naarden and Huizen. An apt name for the nursery as it now appears with the name today referring to the seemingly unlimited sizes of the plants and trees on offer.
He expanded De Limieten a few years later by acquiring Sikking & Zn's nursery in Bussum, specialised in large and mature evergreens, such as holly, Taxus, Pinus and Thuja species. The demand for evergreen hedging plants and solitary trees grew quickly. Large trees need ample space to grow well and we consequently expanded our business finding an excellent location with good sandy soil in Ermelo. This is where we now cultivate large evergreens, Buxus, umbrella and topiary trees on various plots of land.
De Limieten is always keen to provide innovative ideas to help our clients create their ideal garden. Apart from private clients, De Limieten also has created many lovely public gardens throughout Europe. We have also been involved in the rental of plants to many prestigious events, we provide green decoration for a wide range of businesses.
