Give Your Trees the best Start to Their Life in Your Yard
Planting a tree seems simple enough: dig a hole, drop the tree in there, give it some water, and voilà! Fruit and leaves and shade and beauty for years to come.
It's not quite that simple. As hardy as trees are, there's also a fragility to them, especially when it comes to planting them in their forever space. You have to be careful to choose a space where the roots will have room to grow without disrupting the foundation of your house or underground pipes and wires. Take care not to damage the roots or plant the tree too deeply; after it's in, you have to decide whether to stake it.
At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, we offer tree planting services to ensure your trees get a great start to their new life in your yard. While you always have the option of Cash & Carry, where you buy your tree and plant it yourself, we highly recommend Planted & Guaranteed—where we plant the tree for you and guarantee it for a year—especially when it comes to large trees. We know how to transport your tree safely, we have all the necessary tools to do the job, and our crew is highly experienced.
Contact us to learn more about our tree planting services, then visit the nursery and choose a beautiful Frisco, Texas native tree for your outdoor space.

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!
