Martha Garner

This place is my go to for plants. Marcus is very knowledgeable and helpful. He carries a wide selection of plants. They are reasonably priced and pesticide free. A great source of heirlooms and native plants.

Robert Morrow

Alex Ford

#1 place to get your plants in Acadiana

Carmen Mustian

Hands down the most knowledgeable, friendliest plant shopping experience in our area. I literally learn something new every time I visit

Paul Merryman

Marcus the owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. Has a variety of vegetables and spices if your looking to grow your own food. Plus a few different flowers all for a good price.

Tracy Credeur

Awesome nursery tucked away in Lafayette. Reminds me of plant shopping with my parents in that it’s very similar to the old nursery by LHS that was run by a retired UL hortocultist. Not only are the plants healthy, but they are priced fairly. He also offers pine straw bails for mulching landscaped beds. Marcus, thanks for giving Lafayette a unique food based plant option! Do you happen to have thornless blackberry bushes?

Pedro DeCastro Davila

This place has the best selection of flowers, herbs, food plants, and native plants. Everything is grown outside, in our weather, and when transplanted into your garden/bigger pots they grow better than average. The plants are super affordable too!

chadwick crawford

The Urban Naturalist is more than a garden store. Marcus is a central actor in developing consciousness of sustainability in Lafayette, and his business is an invaluable resource for people interested in that approach to gardening and landscaping.

Mo Eller

Love this place!

Robert Galofre

Its a house with herbs. Drove over asked about the mosquito products from their site and owner said he doesnt do that anymore. Asked he had herbs that help deter mosquitos (lavender, rosemary etc). He said no, no mosquitos. He said there was a neighbor that might go spray but I dont live in the neighborhood and wasnt really looking for that. Dissapointing.

Marla Savoy

I absolutely love this place! I always learn something new each time. He not only carries flowers and veggies but also medicinal and native too! Wonderful environment!

Ginnie Joubert

I just love this place so much. They are so willing to teach you about a plant if you dont know much about and not only do they sell herbs, plants, materials, etc., they also offer classes to help start your own pot, hanging plant, the list goes on! If no one is there they also have the self check out option which is awesome! Cash or card! The Urban Naturalist just gets it! :)

Bunches McGuinty

The Travel Vlog Family

We love shopping at the urban naturalist. Despite what the hours say here on Google, you can shop here 24/7. The owner has 3 different options for self checkout. He has a wide variety of plants to choose from and everything is priced at great prices. If Marcus, the owner is here, he is a wealth of knowledge and very personable.

Caitlin Bussey

Very kind and knowledgeable staff

Lindsay Harson

We have been many times, he always has a great selection of plants. We have found so many different things for our yard and gardens. We also went for a homeschool field trip once, that was a great experience. I learned just as much as the kids did! This place is such a nice hidden treasure in Lafayette

Noah Mudge

Marcus and the crew at Urban Naturalist gave our front yard a major make over. They ripped everything out and replaced it with an all natural, all edible landscape. It's beautiful and super easy to maintain, and our family loves including little parts of our front yard in our dinner!

Elizabeth Nixon Davis

Olivia Johnson

Urban Naturalist turned our empty, swampy lot next door to our business into a beautiful area of peaceful retreat -- something much needed and hard to find in our busy neighborhood. Full of herbs and vegetables that we leave open to our neighbors, our community garden has become quite a spot for a nice stroll. Always a phone call away, they regularly maintain our garden and continue to work to keep it in line with our ever-changing vision. As activists for the neighborhood, we are truly grateful for how Urban Naturalist has helped us realize our vision of making the Northside a little more beautiful and friendly.

Chelsie Boudreaux

William Juneau

Very trill

Erin Segura

I'm always able to find herbs and other plants that I can't typically find elsewhere (thai basil, lemon grass, mamou, etc...I think I bought my tulsi plant here as well). I really appreciate how easy it is to show up and buy a plant at any time of day!

Kevin Campbell

A great place to get chemical-free plants (flowers/veggies/fruit) along with friendly and helpful advice for growing them successfully in our area.

Alicia Chaisson

K. Lashea

Tony Bonomolo

Solid help always. Great plant selection and Marcus is always around to answer questions.

Joy Merino

This is the best. I loved just stopping by. The goods are healthy, and the whole experience makes you feel positive, and part of a community, unlike walking through security scanners at stores. I wish we had more like it.

Loree Stickles

I love this place. The big box stores have plants genetically treated plants to kill pollinators. The plants here are never treated to kill bees. And, they are heilom non gmo and or native! Only place in town I get my plants.

Kel Wilcox

Christie Maloyed

Focused on organic and native plants, The Urban Naturalist is my go to spot in Lafayette for vegetables, flowers, as well as culinary and medicinal herbs. I appreciate the after-hours shopping option, and Marcus is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.

Lauren Prather

This is the only nursery we buy our plants from, and really appreciate Marcus's knowledgeable and friendly approach to gardening and creating sustainable and organic gardens. Truly a Lafayette gem!

Leslie Leonpacher

Always a huge healthy variety. The shopping is always fun because there is a chance to see native plants as well as vegetables and flowers. The Urban Naturalist is growing what we grow locally and he absolutely knows our area and how to care for plants. He shares knowledge like water, abundantly and with great thought of the well being of the plants that he sells. I am so grateful for a place like this in my area because the wisdom alone is worth it. He is courteous and helpful and his prices are very reasonable.

Eric Ward

Ian Romero

Top notch heirlooms. Herbs are 5 star. And he has flowers. Definitely a 1 stop shop

Nia Rankin

The Urban Naturalist has fast become one of my favorite places in town to buy my container plants. Over time I find that the plants that I've purchased there are more resilient than my other potted plants. I think this is because the plants are growing in similar conditions outdoors at the shop as they will be in my yard. The prices are quite reasonable, the staff friendly, and the plants are well cared for. The best part is that you can trust Marcus to help you make an informed purchase. I love this place!
