Family Owned & Operated since 1985

Family-owned nursery & landscaping business

Our Story

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!

What Our Clients & Customers Say

I am writing this letter as a retired contractor. Having been in business myself for over thirty-five years I know what it takes to maintain quality in each and every project. Wagner was one of the most detail oriented landscape contractor’s I have ever worked with. They contracted to landscape our own home near Gallatin Gateway which was just completed two years ago and my wife and I could not be more pleased. Their attention to detail was “second to none”. They estimated our project cost and when we were billed they were within that estimate. I will also say that they have good equipment and certainly the expertise of operating it. I would welcome anyone to contact me for either a personal reference or a business reference on Wagner Nursery & Landscape. Sincerely, Garth Sime
