Established in 1999, Backbone Valley Nursery is family owned by the Robertson and Martin families. Our family takes pride in what we do and we strive to provide the very best plants, products, and services in the Highland Lakes area. Our staff is trained to provide you with information and advice that we stand behind. We believe in educating the public and teaching why we do things the way we do so you can take that knowledge and use it at home.

Backbone started as a wholesale tree nursery and has grown to a full service garden center and tree farm that offers complete landscape design and installation. In 2010, we started growing the Texas Mountain Laurel for the wholesale trade. Our business is centered on a philosophy of offering the best knowledge and plant product to the wholesale and retail public. We pride ourselves on doing quality work and giving sound advice that we stand behind. We are a teaching facility and love to help our customers with questions and problems. Please come visit us today!


We are a destination garden center that is worth the drive! With over 14 acres of landscape supplies, you are sure to find what you came for. Our facility is especially nice to just browse and look at what is in bloom and pet our friendly nursery kitties while you are here.  We specialize in plants and trees that perform best in our Central Texas Climate. Our top quality container grown trees are produced right here at our farm and our plant product is high quality and grown by the best in the industry. We have many specimens that are a one of a kind find.  We have a large variety or cactus and succulents, palm trees, shade trees, shrubs, unique gift items, fountains, pottery, bulk mulch and compost, gifts, and gardening products.  Our helpful skilled staff will help you find that perfect combination of plants and trees for your landscape. Be sure to browse Jessica’s Orchid Haus (German for ‘house’) while you are here, there is always something different and exotic in bloom. Once you find us, you won’t forget us!
