In many ways, 2020 was a year of overcoming hardship. We saw businesses and individuals struggle in many ways, but even more so, we saw people and our community rally around one another. We are proud of you and thankful for the ways you supported us as a small business in our community this year.
This past spring many individuals found themselves at home, and ready to improve their outdoor living spaces. We saw our job as providing the plant material and other tools to accomplish that goal as a mission. We wanted to do our part in helping support the mental and physical health of our community. As a business, we cannot applaud or thank our own staff enough! Our retail department had a record year, and our managers worked extremely hard to insure the safety of our staff and customers while excelling in operating and managing our retail department.
We are also extremely proud and thankful for our hardscape, landscape, and maintenance teams. They have all worked very hard on many large-scale projects. In 2020, we finished jobs like: Centennial Park in Midland, Buddy Holly Hall, Citizens Tower, TTU Weeks Hall, and the Monument of Courage. We continued to maintain large public and private parks, businesses and residences. We also worked alongside Betenbough Homes on their new neighborhood parks at Bell Farms and Upland Crossing and we began work at the Lubbock Tornado Memorial. We continued to foster many relationships with amazing customers as we helped individuals improve their homes.
We thank you, Lubbock! You have made our 2020 something to look back on and give thanks. We are thankful for progress, growth, and a community that continually shows us grace and support. Happy New Year, we pray each of you have a blessed 2021.

The weather man is saying it’s going to be scorching hot by the end of the week and into the weekend. Help your plants and trees endure the heat by giving them some Superthive! It helps build vigor in plants allowing them to thrive in any weather condition.

Having a drought tolerant landscape does not mean it has to be only rock and cactus. This landscape is extremely drought tolerant and is bursting with color! The grass is a variety of buffalo which is native to our region.
