Specializing in full-service landscape design, landscape installation, and helping customers who enjoy doing the landscaping themselves with creative ideas, we continue to build on our business that first opened in 1999. Terry and Pat Hastreiter, along with children Ben and Angie, all work together to operate this family-owned business. 

We have expanded our growing operations purchasing 35 acres on the corner of Coddington and Burnham in Southwest Lincoln, so we are growing our own trees, shrubs and perennials in that area of town and taking appointments for landscape design help.
