Expert Landscape Design and the People Who Love It
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.

Step-by-Step: Landscape Design and Installation
We combine sustainable landscape design practices with on-time delivery for a seamless customer experience. Our straightforward design and installation process is simple and personalized:
Contact us to tell us about your project.
Schedule an on-site appointment. This is where our designer becomes familiar with your property and discusses your landscape goals. At that time, we ask that you provide us with a copy of your survey plat and payment of the design fee. The design fee is based on the complexity of your design using a three-tier structure.
Once your landscape designer has completed your comprehensive design, to include the front, back and side yards, you will be invited to Shades of Green to review the drawing and receive a quote for installation. One complimentary revision is included in the initial design fee. Each additional revision is available for a $100 fee.
The landscape design is yours to keep, however, we would like for you to hire our Shades of Green team to professionally install the plan. A 50% down payment is due at the time of scheduling installation. If the cost of your installation meets a certain threshold, we will credit the design fee to the landscape installation invoice.
With design in hand you have three choices:
Take the plans and install it yourself or hire another contractor.
Hire Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape to install the project as designed.
Break the project up into phases, installing it piece by piece on your own or with us.
