About Us

We are a family-owned nursery and landscaping business in Montana with more than 30 years of experience and roots that go three generations deep.

Our owner, Chris Wagner, has been in the design and landscaping business all his life, having grown up with a dad who was a landscaper in Colorado. Chris moved his family to Montana over 25 years ago and has been working in the Montana landscape industry ever since. Three of Chris’ sons—Jake, Nick and Marc—followed him into the family landscaping business.

We started the first of our three Montana nurseries in Whitehall in 1995; the Belgrade nursery opened its doors in 2004, and the Butte Nursery opened its doors in May of 2011. After 18 years, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are closing our Whitehall Nursery. At the same time, we are expanding our Butte operation with the addition of 2 new greenhouses. We are excited about the new changes, and we look forward to serving you!
