Covington Nursery and Landscape Company - Rowlett, Texas

Landscape Design & Installation

Since 1972, Covington's has been creating landscapes in north Texas—everything from planting a single tree to designing and installing all aspects of extraordinary outdoor environments. We are a fully licensed and insured company, offering residential and commercial landscaping design and installation services supplemented by one of the Dallas area's largest retail nurseries. With over 18 acres of fine quality plant material to choose from, it's no wonder we are one of DFW’s best-kept secrets.

A landscape company can offer the best plants and the best designers, but if they use inexperienced crews, what good does it do? Fortunately, we are blessed to have three of the finest crews in Texas to handle your landscape installation. Our installation crews are very thorough, and the detailed clean-up that we do has left many of our customers amazed. For honesty, integrity, and dependability, look to Covington's.
