About Horticulture Solutions

We believe that some key characteristics of Horticulture Solutions set us apart from other landscapers. The owner is involved in all aspects of every job. The size of our company allows us to serve all of our clients’ needs while also being reliable and responsive. Since we are not too big, all of our clients receive exceptional service and every job is important. This also ensures that we are more reasonably priced due to lower overhead. We are a locally owned business which means that you will not receive cookie cutter service. Each client receives individualized service based on their needs and their landscape’s growing conditions.

The staff is uniformed, friendly, and committed to professionalism. Because we are detail oriented and all jobs are carried out with the utmost care, we develop and retain long-term relationships with our clients. All of our equipment is state of the art and well maintained which enables us to be well positioned to serve all of your landscaping needs.

We are proud to be a part of many environmentally sensitive projects that have been awarded LEED certification. We have experience with green-roofs, rain gardens, native plantings, erosion control, and water-wise irrigation projects among other green and sustainable endeavors. Brush and plant material that is removed from projects is recycled, returning it back to nature in the form of mulch, instead of being disposed into a local landfill.

We are fully insured and licensed by the State of Tennessee Department of Agriculture and are members of Professional Landscape Association of Nashville Tennessee.
