Sustainable Practices, Native Plants, and Years of Experience
Yards around the country look different for good reason: they're designed (or should be designed) to match the area's soil and climate. North Texas landscaping services, from design to installation, should consider the heat, the clay soil, and the frequent drought conditions we experience in this part of the country. If you don't design your yard around that reality, you're left with dying plants, eroding soil, and high expenses for upkeep and replacements.
Professional drought-tolerant landscapes require less water and less maintenance than a traditional design. The Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape owner, Jeff McCauley, is also our lead designer. He brings more than 40 years of experience in Texas native plants and sustainable landscaping services to Frisco, Texas yards and gardens. His expert designs have saved clients time, money, and hassle with beautiful yards they can enjoy for years.
We work closely with you during the design process to understand what types of plants you like and how you want your yard to look and feel. Contact us to learn more about our sustainable landscaping services.

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!

Why Sustainable Landscaping?
Simply put, it's the right thing to do. It's better for the soil, the plants that grow here, and the wildlife that lives here. It saves water, time, and money, and we wish every landscaper would keep environmental responsibility in mind.
Nature delivers abundant plant variety, even in a dry climate like ours. No matter what type of plants you enjoy, we can find a Texas native species that matches your interests in terms of size, maintenance, function, color, and appearance. We can install them to take advantage of the available sun and water, and we'll design your entire yard to prevent erosion, minimize water waste, and support the soil and healthy root systems.
