Pre-Engineered Steel Agricultural Building in Leland, North Carolina

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was pleased to fabricate and supply this pre-engineered steel agricultural building on behalf of a customer in Leland, North Carolina, in late December of 2018.

These days, the durable, reliable metal building functions as a garden center for  the Bloomin’ Crazy Nursery, a Leland-based residential and commercial landscaping and nursery company serving Leland, Wilmington and surrounding communities. What initially began as a small plant nursery has since grown into a much larger operation that offers residential and commercial landscape design and installation, residential and commercial irrigation repairs and installation, night lighting design and installation, hardscape installation, and outdoor kitchen installation, among other services. 

Affordable Greenhouses & Garden Centers

Sturdy, sustainable and cheaper to erect than most alternative types of construction, prefabricated metal greenhouses and garden centers are easy to assemble and equally easy to maintain. Their damage-resistant and low-maintenance nature leads to low lifelong costs of ownership, and they are also easily customizable so buyers can design them to accommodate their needs and match any other buildings already standing on a particular property.

This particular metal building houses many of the plants and flowers available for purchase at the Bloomin’ Crazy Nursery, protecting them from the elements, pests and other potential hazards. Part of coastal North Carolina’s Myrtle Beach metro area, the town of Leland is part of Brunswick County. It sits just west of downtown Wilmington, surrounding the town of Belville on three sides.
