Barton Springs Nursery

About Us

Our Commitment
Since 1986, Barton Springs Nursery has been dedicated to serving the needs of gardeners in the Central Texas region by offering one of the best selections of native and well-adapted plants for this area. We strive to be more than a commercial endeavor, but rather a place of information, guidance, enjoyment, and progressive horticulture for the community.

Our Surroundings
Take a walk around the grounds, and you'll see why Barton Springs Nursery is different. Our four acre spread is a former ranch and stable. The original rock walls remain, and our cedar fences are rustic reproductions of a Texas fence style used in the early 1900s. Our shady grove of live oak trees provide a natural spot for our shade-loving plants, as well as a quiet place to rest a spell. Bring your children and they will find endless amusement with our parakeet atrium, toy-filled sandbox, and flourishing ponds, complete with fish and turtles.

Our Nursery
The majority of our plants are grown right here at the nursery, where they become acclimated to our soil, water, and climate. When you buy a plant here, it already knows this is home, and it's more likely to make an easy transition to your own landscape. We support environmentally friendly pest management, the use of organic techniques, and water conservation. We propagate and cultivate unusual plants so that they too can take root in our Central Texas soil. If you're looking for something different to jazz up your garden, you've come to the right place.

Wander through our exceptional array of plants that can transform your outdoor space. We carry plant material in a variety of sizes, from 4 inch to 45 gallon and everything in between. Perennials, annuals, edibles, ornamental grasses, ground covers, roses, palms, bamboo, bog plants, trees, vines, and succulents, including a stellar selection of drought-tolerant and native species.

Our Staff
While you're here, take the time to talk with our extremely knowledgeable staff. The owners and staff share the love of the Central Texas landscape and will gladly answer your questions and help you to choose the right plants for your garden and landscape. In addition, we can supply you with a list of designers who can help you to re-envision your own slice of Texas.

Our Philosophy
We feel that growing a garden instills a joy in existence and a reverence for life. We feel passionate about what we do here. We hope you'll stop by to experience firsthand some of the enchantment sprouting from our land.
