Since 1972

A Family Tradition

Our family business has been led with passion for over half a century. Founded by Bill Weishaar and now steered by his three sons, Baxter Gardens is a leader in landscape design.

We design outdoor spaces that mirror your unique preferences and lifestyle. With our designs, every season will bloom beautifully in your outdoor space, maintaining its allure all year.

Our commitment to superior service and quality helps us provide a seamless experience from design to installation and beyond. We will carefully manage each stage of your project.

A Solid Foundation

Our Core Principle

Bill Sr.’s original vision still guides our work. While the plant materials may have changed, our core principle of contrasting color, height, and texture remains the foundation of each design.
