New Landscape Tour – Daniel & Jen in Murphy

Daniel and Jen in Murphy contacted us to help reimagine their landscape after they lost most of their plants in last year’s freeze (all they had left were a few worn-out holly hedges.) The couple, who were a pleasure to work with, wanted those replaced with something that would be easier to maintain and withstand North Texas winter freezes and blazing summer heat. Their other ask was to remove their old, rusted steel edging by installing a new stone border.

Over the years, we’ve worked with many landscape customers, some of whom like us to do everything, and others want to be part of the process. Daniel and Jen were the latter, and we had a lot of fun collaborating on what plants would be best and where we would place them in the final landscape (which we love because we know when the project is done, we have created the landscape the exact way they wanted.)

As you can see in the video and before and after photos, the result turned out great. Daniel and Jen are delighted with the results and raved about Hannah and her Landscape Team. The couple went on to say that anytime they asked for a change, no matter if it was Hannah, Darrius, or Manny, the team said yes and did it with a big smile which they loved because a lot of contractors will grumble and roll their eyes when asked to make changes. They loved our work and team so much that they have already recommended our landscape services to a co-worker and told other friends who were thinking about a landscape to call us.

Landscape Tour Revisit – Steve & Cathy in Richardson

Today we wanted to revisit Steve and Cathy’s landscape project in Richardson. At Village Green, we know a landscape is an investment in the future of your home, so we make it a point to revisit our projects to ensure the landscape is progressing as planned and that our customers are happy with the results. Taking the extra step is essential to us because our underlying mission at Village Green is to grow plants, people, and relationships.

Check Out Scott & Sue’s Low Maintenance Landscape

Scott and Sue wanted an easy-to-maintain landscape with nice color, which informed our plant selections. As you’ll see in this video tour, all the plants we used are low maintenance and easy to take care of – they don’t need to be trimmed much and are both heat and cold tolerant.

Thank you, Scott, and Sue, for allowing us to work with you on your landscape and allowing us to showcase our work.

Take a Tour of Eric and Nancy Frisco, Texas Landscape

Eric and Nancy have been Village Green customers for a handful of years, so when it came time to move into their new home, they gave us a call about upgrading the landscape with plants they preferred. The builder had installed the previous landscape, and most of the plant selections were of poor quality and not very attractive, per Eric and Nancy.

After the 2020 winter freeze further damaged their plants, they decided to redo the landscape with more interesting plant selections and more color. As you can see in our video, the front of the home is narrow, so we went with dwarf and semi-dwarf plants. We started with pringle yews on the corners, a 4′ tall evergreen plant with soft needles. We added kaleidoscope abelias under their windows which have lovely yellow foliage with small white blooms and will reach roughly three feet tall. In front of the yews and abelias, we selected a layer of dwarf plants, flirt nandinas, stella d’oro daylilies, and perennial dianthus. These plants add nice color and texture throughout the spring and summer months. We used a brown composite edging for their border, which looks great and is more economical than stone borders and won’t rust as the green steel edging does.

When I checked in to get feedback on how their landscape installation had gone, they told me how delighted they were with the results. They went on to say this about our team, “Hannah is very sensitive to the desires and needs of the customer and accommodates their wishes. She has her heart in it. She wants the customer to be pleased.”

As the Landscape Manager, they added they expected Hannah would be on site to show the team what needed to be done and then drive off but were pleased to see her on the job digging with the rest of the team.

Thank you, Eric and Nancy, for allowing us to work with you on the new landscape and allowing us to showcase our work.

Tour Our Landscape Upgrade for our Downtown Plano Shop

Our shop and offices are a few blocks south of the Historic Downtown Plano Arts District, so we needed to have a landscape that exemplified what we do at Village Green and added beauty to our busy and thriving neighborhood.

Last fall, we installed this landscape, which isn’t the optimal time to photograph a new landscape (most of the perennial plants are not up and looking good yet.) But as you’ll see in our photos and video, you’ll start seeing a big difference after a few months!

All credit for this landscape goes to Hannah, who did 100% of the design. She did an excellent job using larger plants to frame our building and was efficient with her use of existing plants we could relocate within the landscape design.

As I think you’ll agree, our landscape turned out great, and the entire Village Green team is proud of it and the other shop improvements we’ve made.

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.

[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

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.

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.
[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=
I want to thank Stacy for trusting us with her project and letting us take a video tour of her landscape.

Landscape Spotlight: Michelle & Craig’s Family Friendly North Plano Project

Michelle and Craig contacted us to help reimagine their large, open North Plano backyard. The couple had a good idea of what they wanted in their project. It was essential to keep as much of their large lawn as possible so their six and nine-year-old children could enjoy the space (or a pool could be installed in the future.) They also wanted to create an area in their landscape for a vegetable garden and space for Craig’s mower and tools. They also wanted to soften their fence line, create some privacy from the neighbors, and upgrade their outdoor patio space.

As you can see in the before and after photos, the design will help cover their expansive fence with plants that will mature and screen the neighbor’s homes, creating a sense of privacy in the backyard. To soften the extensive fence, we used a combination of savannah holly, needlepoint hollies, and abelias.

[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

Michelle and Craig also wanted more outdoor living space, so we expanded the patio area with a new stamped concrete area that looks beautiful. Surrounding it, we used compact nandinas, lambs’ ear, irises, and dwarf Mexican petunias to complement and frame the patio.

I want to thank Michelle and Craig for trusting us with their project and for taking the time to send me the following note about our team.

“I’m certain you know this already, but I believe you have some great employees in Hannah, Juan, and Manny. They’re very friendly, welcoming of any questions or concerns, and were very professional throughout the entire 3-week job. I’m not sure one could ask for better ambassadors or representatives of your business.”  Michelle and Craig

Landscape Spotlight: Brandon & Lindsay’s Maintenance-Free West Plano Landscape

Like many of our customers, Brandon and Lindsay discovered Village Green via a Google search. They, like so many in North Texas, had suffered some freeze damage in February 2021. As has been the case for many, the freeze allowed them to rethink their landscape design and update things that have bugged them for years.

Brandon and Lindsay had clear goals, and they wanted to re-do their front landscape and make it as maintenance-free as possible. They also wanted to replace their old border with a masoned, stone border (they even had sample photos to share with me to illustrate what they wanted.) Then another important but less sexy ask was to fix some issues with their downspouts which were causing problems being so close to their foundation.

[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

As you can see in the video, we removed their dead plants and the large, overcrowded hollies and replaced them with plants requiring no trimming. It doesn’t get more maintenance-free than that! We added kaleidoscope abelias for medium-sized, evergreen colors and used obsession nandina to frame the entry with a dash of a reddish color. To give some color and layering, we used giant liriope, perennial dianthus, and purple heuchera.

Brandon and Lindsay were delighted with our stonemason, Andres, and his work with the stone border. They also loved working with Hannah and her landscape team and have been even more impressed with our overall post-project follow-up. It is one of the things that sets us apart. When we install a landscape, we stop by and check in a few weeks later to make sure everything is going well. Our goal is to let our customers enjoy their landscape worry-free and not have to worry about it (that’s our job!)

I want to thank Brandon and Lindsay for trusting us with their landscape and for taking the time to leave their nice review on Google, where they first found Village Green!

Brandon & Lindsay’s Review
“Village green was excellent to work with. During the freeze, we lost a decent amount of bushes in our front landscaping. Ken came out, had specific plants in mind to put back, and wrote up a proposal with pictures of the plants. They also built a border wall the entire length of the landscaped area. Andres and his team, which Village Green subcontracted to do the wall, did an excellent job and made it look exactly as we expected. Their work was efficient and seems to be of very high quality. Then, Hannah with Village Green exceeded our expectations by fully listening to us on what we wanted, moved plants and borders around as desired, and efficiently managed everyone to get the job done. The whole crew went above and beyond. Throughout the entire process, the whole team was very easy to talk to, and we were easily able to communicate our exact vision. They executed it perfectly. My only complaint was they couldn’t start earlier! Understandable, though, as everyone in the metroplex was trying to landscape at the same time. Ultimately, great work, and I was very pleased with the outcome.”
