Smarter Landscapes That work for You
Since 1985 McPlants has been designing and creating the type of landscapes that bring greater value to your life and property every day. Unique custom gardens that spark your joy with beauty and easy maintenance.
Smarter gardens – not just bland landscapes with a few plants stuck in the ground. Our landscape designs relax and inspire you year round with seasonal interest while avoiding the high maintenance hassles created from poor design.
Understanding and addressing your outdoor desires, goals, and challenges with cost effective solution is what McPlants founder Craig McManus calls “Solutioneering”.
The whole process starts by analyzing your property then creatively applying sound horticultural, arboricultural, construction, drainage, irrigation, lighting and art principles.
McPlants started as a simple retail garden center. Today McPlants is a landscape design/build organization with millions of thriving plants across our community, thousands of square feet of pavers and retaining walls installed, hundreds of structures built … and it was all done with useful, smart, and solid plants, products, and services.
A whole lot of time, effort and experience are spent on each project developing the solutions that work for you.
Custom solutions conceived from practical real-world garden applications we use every day.
Our mission never changes: We’re here to create the kind of garden you will cherish more and more every day.
