Take a Tour of Robert’s West Plano Landscape

Our latest landscape project was for Robert in West Plano. Robert has worked with Village Green for five years and is a lawn health plan customer. We also helped Robert with irrigation repair, landscape, and drainage work, so he knew who to call when it was time to update his front landscape to repair winter 2021 freeze damage!

Unfortunately, Robert’s freeze damage was severe, other than the border and Japanese Maples, and we were starting from scratch.


Since the first step to any successful landscape is the design plan, Hannah and her team went to work placing larger plants on the outside corners to frame Robert’s house. Hannah and her team did this with Edward Goucher Abelias, whose soft white blooms reach about four feet tall. To add color and texture, Hannah added a layer of dwarf plants (including holly ferns, purple heuchera, and leopard plants.)

Hannah has worked with Robert on a few projects, and Robert was impressed yet again by Hannah and her landscape team. Robert shared that he was impressed that Hannah rolled up her sleeves and did so much of the work herself and did an excellent job explaining what we were doing each step of the way, and was willing to do anything to make things right.

A few weeks after the installation, we followed up with Robert to make sure he was happy and that things were going well with the new landscape. Robert told us everything was great and asked what fertilizer we used since his plants were thriving and had grown faster than expected. Village Green does use fertilizer, but the real secret to our success is that we take the time to prepare the soil properly before installation. Many landscape companies skip this vital part of the process to cut costs and offer a lower price. The thing to remember is that landscapes are like most things in life. You get what you pay for.

If you have a project in mind for 2022, we would love the opportunity to earn your business.

Mid-May Lawn Update

Even though it might not seem like it, we had a pretty severe winter in our area. That, coupled with a cool spring and the quick warm-up we’ve had the past few weeks, we are seeing some lawns struggling (this is especially true of St. Augustine, a tropical plant that doesn’t like a hard winter.) In today’s video update, Ken tells you more about what we’ve seen in area lawns and what we should expect as we head toward summer (which officially begins on June 21.)


If you aren’t currently using Village Green for your lawn’s health, we would love to earn you business. Founded in 1980, we are a family-owned and operated lawn and landscape company—Call 972-495-6990 or email for more information.

Take a Tour of Stacy’s Frisco Landscape

Today we’re featuring one of our latest landscape projects for Stacy in Frisco. This home is stunning, but unfortunately, Stacy’s established landscape suffered freeze damage and needed an update befitting the home’s exterior.

Stacy’s landscape had a lot of formally manicured shrubs that had outgrown their locations, so we blended elements of the new landscape with existing pieces she wanted to keep. To frame the home, we used variegated pittosporums, which have creme-colored leaves and reach about 5′ tall. As we worked our way across, we used more medium-sized plants such as abelias and anthony waterer spireas, which have lovely blooms. We used flirt nandina to frame the home’s entry, which is one of our favorite choices because it stays low and turns a beautiful red during our North Texas winter. We also used red yucca, which adds a contemporary feel with the bonus of having nice red blooms during the summer. We used dwarf plants such as giant liriope and perennial dianthus to add a layer in the front. To tie it all together, we installed a band of river rock. Stacy loved working with our Landscape Team of Hannah, Juan, and Manny. She said they were a pleasure to work with and that Village Green made the entire process easy. Stacy added that she especially loved the communication throughout the whole process and that our team would do a thorough clean-up at the end of each workday.
I want to thank Stacy for trusting us with her project and letting us take a video tour of her landscape.
