Green Thumb Nursery is a trusted name in landscape design and installation. We grow and stock quality trees, shrubs, and bedding plants that are given careful daily care so that every plant is hardy and vigorous.

We also maintain excellent working relationships with area designers and architects. We are skilled in dealing with prairie clay soils which are often a hindrance to landscape success.

There is something magical about the evening garden, and Green Thumb's professionally designed low-voltage landscape lighting brings out the special beauty unique to the nighttime. For only pennies a day, it safely illuminates the best features of your yard and shapes both the view and the mood.
Garden lighting provides both safety and security. Custom nightlighting helps you to see where you are walking at night--illuminating pathways, steps, obstructions, changes in elevation, or anything that could be potentially dangerous. It also strongly discourages intruders by lighting the ground level and eliminating shadows near the house.
Custom nightlighting multiplies your opportunities to enjoy your garden and other outdoor living areas. Since most people are working and attending to other responsibilities throughout the day, their leisure time at home is usually after dark. A Green Thumb lighting system allows you to extend the use and pleasure of your garden for entertaining, playing games, or just relaxing.
If you are ready for a night garden that sparkles with beauty, while providing the safety and security you need, give Green Thumb a call.
