We Know What Grows Here, and We Grow It Ourselves
For decades, we've been living and gardening in this area. We're deeply familiar with the soil, the climate, the trees, and the plants; we know what thrives in the Texas heat because we grow it ourselves at Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape. No matter the season, Shades of Green can help you complete your gardening project and maintain your lawn and landscaping - check our events page and get ideas for your gardens and lawns.
We specialize in native perennials for a good reason: like us, they're from here. They've made their home in the hot summers and unpredictable winters for centuries. They're perfectly adapted to North Texas soil and pests. These plants don't just survive here—they thrive here. Planting these native and select well-adapted plants in your yard means you'll use less water, less fertilizer, and less pesticide, which leads to healthier soil and beautiful, long-lasting landscaping.
Visiting our garden center is nothing like a big box nursery experience. Our team of experts make gardening fun again! We're equipped to answer any questions you have about gardening in Frisco, Texas and the surrounding area, and we empower you to embrace your green thumb and cultivate a beautiful yard. We offer practical planting solutions based on the regional climate as well as your unique outdoor environment: how much sunlight it gets, how often you're able to water it, how protected it is, and how much or little you want to be hands-on with your plants.
Don't spend another dollar on a plant that isn't equipped to live in North Texas—it's disappointing for you and the plant both. Contact us to learn more about native perennials, trees, and shrubs, or schedule a visit to our beautiful nursery. We'd love to show you around.

Happy Plants, Happy Customers
With our expertise and years of experience, we've matched countless customers with the ideal plants for their homes and yards. Take a look at what they have to say about their experience with our nursery and landscaping team:
Shades of Green offers a large, spread out location to purchase many varieties of plants and trees. While there isn’t every variety under the sun, you will find some that aren’t well known. Most are good for the Texas heat and soil.
I needed a tree replaced and I shopped around at the other local tree farms. The staff here seemed much more helpful and they were able to help me with the tree I needed for a fair price. It’s also a nice place just to walk around and browse.
Stopped there with almost zero knowledge on the shrubs, left with the knowledge of expert :-). Elizabeth answered all my questions walked me through the different selections they had in store, and helped me make my decision. I never got disappointed from this place. People like Elizabeth make it more pleasant. Keep up the good job!
Friendly service. Excellent selection of healthy plants. Close to home.
We received amazing service selecting the plants for our backyard landscaping project and the delivery guys were awesome too. Everyone was so helpful and easy to work with. We love Shades of Green and are customers for life. And our yard looks amazing now!
The staff at Shades of Green is knowledgeable and always helpful when I visit. They have a wide variety of plants to choose from and can help you walk through what will grow best at your home. The prices are competitive and the gift shop is packed with unique gifts! I recommend Shades of Green to all of my family and friends.
Beautiful nursery with great vibes, friendly staff and very helpful. Definitely coming back.
