The staff at The Mustard Seed are all Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association-certified professionals driven by a love for everything that grows on the earth. At their garden center facility, they maintain hundreds of plants in several greenhouses and on more than 12 acres of property. Evergreen and deciduous trees, annuals and perennials, and exotic shrubs add color and vibrancy to home landscaping. The center's koi fish are perfect for populating water features or befriending people who never leave the swimming pool. The Mustard Seed also keeps children entertained with a play area and a petting zoo that's home to donkeys and pygmy goats, among other friendly creatures.
Knowing that an attractive garden doesn't always grow itself, The Mustard Seed's landscaping team travels to nearby locations to install completely customized landscaping layouts. The design team specializes in striking a balance between beauty and function with projects such as perennial or water gardens, patios, and decks. The installation team can execute design plans in phases or all at once.
