From Native Plants to Drought-Tolerant Landscape Design and Installation, Our Team of Experts Are Here to Help
Not all garden centers and plant nurseries are created equal—we made sure of that when we chose our property in Frisco, Texas 25 years ago. We set up shop on seven beautiful acres, complete with 200-year-old trees, a stream, a barn, a windmill, and more. A visit to Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape is about more than plant shopping. It's an opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle of your day and enjoy some time in nature.
We're more than a pretty property, though. With more than 40 years of experience in Texas horticulture, we specialize in the native and well-adapted plants we know will grow in this region. Gardening is fun for us, and we want it to be fun for you, too. To that end, we offer a full range of products and services to help your garden grow. Shop native flowers, trees, shrubs, seeds, ornamental grasses, and more in our nursery, and get your mulch, compost, organic fertilizer, and other supplies in our garden center. Our landscaping team can design, install, and help you maintain a sustainable, drought-resistant outdoor space.
Our knowledgeable team is happy to share what we know about plants and how to keep them healthy. You're always welcome to ask questions (simply email us or stop by!), and we invite you to sign up for our newsletter and attend our free workshops and clinics where you can learn more about plants and gardening.

Meet Our Owner: Jeff McCauley
Jeff always knew he wanted to work with plants: he started his horticulture career at age 15 with a job in a retail garden center in Dallas. While earning his horticulture degree at Texas A&M, he started Shades of Green as a lawn mowing company with his friend and business partner, Rob Weir. It grew from there into the full-service plant nursery, garden center, and landscaping service you know today as Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape.
With more than 40 years of experience, Jeff knows Texas native plants and is an expert in drought-tolerant landscaping.
Our Frisco, Texas Customers are Our Neighbors
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.
