About Us

Shades of Green is the right place for the right plants.

Located on seven spacious acres on the east side of Frisco, Shades of Green is a full-service, family owned & operated garden center with rustic charm and a unique vibe. The nursery is nestled under 200 year old cottonwood trees along a spring fed creek. Established in 1977 by native Texans, we’ve been proud to call Frisco home for 25 years.  We offer advice, landscape design & installation by certified professionals, and a large selection of flowers, shrubs, trees, succulents, houseplants, and more.  We specialize in native perennials and adapted plants that thrive in the unique conditions of Collin County and North Texas.

Shades of Green can help you complete your landscaping project, maintain your lawn and garden, and answer any and all questions that may come up along the way. From free clinics and classes to craft-making happy hours, we’ll gladly provide the knowledge you need to succeed so that you can truly enjoy your outdoor space. Our experienced designers, horticulturalists, and certified landscape professionals are always here to help.

Shades of Green sells trees, shrubs, flowers, herbs, vegetables, succulents, cacti, houseplants, pottery, native Texas perennials, seeds, organic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, potting soil, compost, mulch, decomposed granite, boulders, flagstone, and more.
