Full-Service Retail & Wholesale Nursery

Shades of Texas Nursery makes two promises to its customers:

1. The best quality    2. The largest selection

Open to the public and professional installers, Shades of Texas has grown to be the area’s largest full-service garden center (south of Interstate 10 East to West). Shades of Texas customers can literally drive through the entire 150-acre nursery. The roads between each of the 12 lots (some lots spanning six to ten rows) are wide enough to accommodate a 60 ft. long eighteen-wheeler. And, we invite all customers – retail consumers and professional landscapers – to drive thru to pick out the product that best suits their needs. We offer more than 100,000 high-quality products in inventory. Do you demand a large selection? Not to worry, Shades of Texas has you covered.

Professional Landscaping Services

We do it all, where the end result is a well-manicured garden designed to enhance the curbside appeal of your home or business.

Our client’s needs are different, as are our landscape designs. Whether it is a residential or commercial project, we take pride in creating true custom designs specifically for each individual client with a personal touch by the owner himself. In fact, Jon Mathews is on the jobsite at the time each tree and plant is installed. We can design and install the hardscapes, build the decks, install the irrigation, mitigate and prepare the soil mixture, plant and sod the lawn areas. Our years of experience can help you create the perfect outdoor setting for your home or business.
