Providing Horticultural Knowledge and Products for over 30 years!


I offer Horticultural and Landscape Consultations as well as Landscape Design services, primarily within a 20 mile radius of the U.T.S.A. campus in northwest San Antonio.  My goal is to help create outstanding outdoor environments for you as well as your family & guests. I recommend using only durable materials & the best, adapted varieties of plants.

Though I have not been in the nursery business since 2000, I do maintain contacts with specialty growers and can provide current landscape design clients with sources of the novelties and rarities that have always featured prominently in my designs.

  These consultation services are provided at an hourly rate. From time to time, I am able to help those beyond a 20 mile radius of U.T.S.A., including:  Austin, Bandera, Bastrop, Bergheim, Blanco, Boerne, Canyon Lake, Castroville, Comfort, Fredericksburg, Harper, Kendalia, Kerrville, Luckenbach, Marble Falls, McQueeny, Medina Lake, New Berlin, New Braunfels, Pipe Creek, Seguin, Sisterdale, Spring Branch, Tarpley and Utopia.

     The first 15 minutes of travel time are free, additional time in transit will be charged at my usual rate.


   For commercial landscapes, I offer assistance in reducing maintenance expenditures while enhancing visual appeal and complying economically with landscape ordinances. 

    Please feel free to schedule a consultation if you are having problems with an existing landscape or have questions regarding certain specimens.

*I do not engage in the business or occupation of pruning, 
treating, or removing trees for profit within the corporate limits
 of San Antonio, Texas or its claimed extra-territorial jurisdiction
 because I do not desire to apply for the Tree Maintenance
 License required by 21-171 of the code of the
municipal corporation known as "City of San Antonio".
I can, however, provide some of those services OUTSIDE of the corporate
limits of San Antonio, Texas and its claimed extra-territorial jurisdiction.
