Rare Earth Landscape Materials
was started in 1980
We are a family owned company committed to
bringing you the highest quality products
at reasonable prices
Founded by Jim Hopper just after graduating from
Nevada Union High School, while attending
American River College
Jim's goal was to bring
landscape and garden supplies that were not
available to Nevada County, and starting
with only a small tractor,
Jim would rent a trailer and shovel
customers materials out on deliveries.
Jim’s wife Jami, also a Nevada Union graduate
joined him at Rare Earth in 1984.
Together they have strived hard to bring the best possible
materials and supplies for your garden and landscape.
Now we have been joined by our son Kirby Hopper,
after attending college in Oregon and at Sierra College
Kirby is bringing new ideas to build a
bigger and better Rare Earth.
We still do business the same way we did when we started many years ago-with the strongest emphasis possible on customer service. While we’re proud of our growth and success over the years, we haven’t forgotten who made it possible,
our customers… truly our most precious asset.
Rare Earth Landscape Materials has grown each
year while bringing more
products to Nevada County and its surrounding areas.
We want to bring you the best products at the best prices.
