At over one million square meters, our Landscape Nursery is the largest in the region and is part of our planet first approach to enriching the natural environment around us and setting new standards in sustainable development.

It is now fully operational and in total will provide more than 25 million plants for The Red Sea and AMAALA, reducing our reliance on importing foreign species of plants and instead allowing native plants to thrive. Guests can satisfy their senses by visiting the nursery through touching, smelling, and seeing beautiful and rare plants, shrubs, trees and palms.

The project is worker-led, with local communities crucial to the nursery’s development and maintenance. Through this, we have ensured the nursery improves the unique ecology of the Kingdom and supports the local economy by providing rewarding opportunities for local Saudis.

Nursery Design

The plants grown in the nursery are predominantly native species that are fully adapted to the climate and conditions around the destination, both coastal and inland. Additional desert-dwelling species may be included, after ensuring that any imported species will co-exist comfortably with the local flora and fauna.

The nursery provides two to three growing seasons per year, during which trees, shrubs, and plants are propagated, matured, and acclimatized. Turfgrass is also grown for the destination’s championship golf course, hotels, and residential properties.

The destination’s treatment plant is supplementing irrigation water for the Landscape Nursery, while a composting unit turns organic-rich waste into compost to be used for the nursery. Six water tanks also support the nursery, each with a capacity of 18,000m3.

Four shade houses have also been constructed. Two provide 70% shading and the other two provide 40%, with each around 31,320m2.
