2021 has been quite the year! As we welcome 2022, we want to take this opportunity to reflect on 2021 and thank each of our customers for supporting our business. While we help you build your dream landscape and garden, you’re helping us build our dream of doing just that!

After more than 40 years in business, we are proud to remain a family-run company. While we’re growing year after year, the pandemic has created unique challenges for us to overcome as a team. We’ve been thrilled with the increasing number of people looking to their own backyards for inspiration, comfort and creativity. Through our landscape and design services, we have been helping people fall in love and get excited over their little corner of the world. 

As we prepare for 2022, we’re keeping our eyes on houseplant, design and landscaping trends so that we can provide you with exceptional customer service and experience.  

If you’re looking to upgrade your Central Iowa landscaping in 2022, our team of designers can help you breathe fresh life into any part of your home. Whether you want to give your fire pit a new spark, create a more inviting front entry, or expand your ability to entertain on your patio, we can help. 

We continue to add to our vast selection of trees, shrubs, flowers, and houseplants to add more greenery to your home and garden. We also scout out the best locally-made garden art to put a personal touch on your garden and landscaping.
