My husband and I live in Albuquerque. We called this business based on online reviews and close proximity to our daughter & son-in-law's new home in Queen Creek. I dealt with Rita to purchase a potted citrus tree for them & I cannot be happier! Rita was wonderful! Incredibly helpful, very knowledgeable and I immediately felt she was trustworthy and I was glad to have chosen Desert Horizon. Thank you, Rita, so very much for your help. I'm sure our AZ family will be thrilled with their trees! I know they'll recommend you to people also because they loved stopping by your business & browsing.

We recently (March, 2018) had a total backyard transformation completed by Desert Horizon Nursery and we couldn't be happier! We started with a new construction backyard - just dirt. Our Landscape Design Specialist, Sarah Hillman, was a joy to work with - Sarah worked with us to develope a beautiful backyard with pavers, a Pergola, artificial turf and a selection of beautiful palms, citrus trees and flowering plants/shrubs.Brian and his crew from "Big B" did a wonderful job with the pavers & the Pergola. Rob Gibson (Landscape Design Superintendent) and his crew (with Crew Leaders Carlos & Jerry) completed Irrigation & planting; they were also a joy to work with. Artificial Turf was also completed, with Rob following up after a week to ensure that everything was completed to our satisfaction. In addition, Christy Adams (Landscape Design Coordinator) also followed up to ensure our satisfaction with the completed project.We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Desert Horizon Nursery for any landscaping project, large or small!

The best nursery in the entire east valley! Staff actually know about plants, where to plant, when they bloom, how tall a plant will get, growing requirements, etc.. knowledgable. The plants always look healthy. And..an amazing selection of pots from all over the world for outdoor container planting... This place is one of the best I"ve been to and a feel good place- friendly, nice atmosphere and great service! Kudos!

I have bought over 10 plants from this nursery in the last 5 months. They are a great knowledgeable staff and everything I have gotten has been sturdy(I didn’t have a very good green thumb) but I haven’t killed anything yet! Very thankful for this nursery and the staff!

Desert Horizon Nursery is very close to finishing up our backyard, picking up where my efforts finally gave out. Eric Couture in the design center came out to our property at Lindsay and Chandler heights to listen to our needs. Shortly thereafter he came up with a design using landscaping software that had price scaleable design options. He got us scheduled for work and his crews quickly and professionally wrapped up the work in our empty yard spaces. We are very happy with the results. Way to go Eric and DHN! We'll be posting pictures soon!

We are so thrilled with our new back yard designed by Sarah Hillman at Desert Horizon Nursery and professionally installed by a very talented crew who delivered a beautiful product quicker than anticipated. Sarah was great to work with and we valued both her insight and wonderful suggestions to create a colorful and cozy back yard environment. Rob Gibson, the division manager, guided the crew very efficiently and met with us regularly to keep us informed on their progress. As a property manager I work with many different landscape contractors and I rank Desert Horizon with our high end commercial groups.

I was at Desert Horizon Nursery on Sunday 10/22/17 & loved the great customer service I received from Jessica. I enjoyed walking around looking at all the beautiful plants, pots & waterfalls etc. Jessica showed me a cactus that I had questions about and was super knowledgeable about everything. I would recommend this Nursery to everyone.

We absolutely LOVE Desert Horizon Nursery!! Wish I could leave 10 stars!!! We have purchased tress, shrubs, flowers, a fountain, pots...and the list goes on!! They always treat us like family from the moment we get there. We have always had their team plant our trees and they are amazing. Aaron and his crew take such pride in giving our trees love and care while putting them in their forever home! When we go to the Nursery Jessica is our go to gal! She is there with her big smile and her love of plants! Wouldn't know what to do without her!! We have also had wonderful help from the crew there... Miguel installed our fountain in our backyard. Jordan is there to help with whatever we need and Alvin is always a pleasure! So many other wonderful people there I hate to leave anyone out! And of course Ms. Rita and Chuck.... Love their knowledge!! WE LOVE YOU GUYS and we recommend the nursery to everyone!!

People at Desert Horizon Nursery are just fantastic. I wanted to have landscaping work done at my backyard. Sarah, Landscape Design Specialist did the superb design work to our needs. We met her several times and she was willing to make every change to the design that we wanted. The actual work of site preparation, installing pavers, building fire pit, installing artificial grass and lighting was done in the most professional manner under the supervision of Rob Gibson, Landscape Division Manager. Rob is on top of his job all the time. His crew namely Rafael and Juaqine were outstanding. I give this company 5 stars without any hesitation. They are simply the best in the Valley.

I recently had the backyard of my new home done by Desert Horizon Nursery. From meeting with a designer, to the work actually being completed it was a very positive experience. Everyone was friendly, professional and most definitely places the customer first. I had a large planter built with stone work on the face and top of it and the workmanship is outstanding! I also had pavers installed, a fountain, several small planters down the sides, gravel and of course lots of beautiful plants. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Desert Horizon Nusery. Thank you Christy, Sarah, Rob and all the crews for the excellent job!

My Husband and I used Desert Horizon to do a complete make over of our front and backyard. On day one they showed up with a complete crew of around 8 men. Within a few days our yard looked amazing. The design was amazing. They installed pavers, planted new trees, flowering plants, new gravel, and a water drip system. Carlos and his crew were great! Rob, who supervised the project has gone above and beyond answering allof our questions after the job was completed. We have appreciated Robs follow up and customer service. Would we recommend Desert Horizon? Absolutely!

Almost always helpful (one or two employees should get into another field of work) and very knowledgeable on their stock. Beautifully layed out, lots of healthy stock to choose from. Delivery team who bring trees and plants to your home for planting have always gone over and above what was expected and done an excellent professional job.

Got a tour with Brian and loved it!! Absolutely amazing trees and got to sample fruit off them if ready. Flat delivery charge for whatever you can load up on the truck. Brian never rushed us and took the time to answer any questions we had. Most importantly, told me when he didn't know or wasn't sure (I don't like when people blow smoke up my A**). Worth the drive and highly recommend.

This was the best contractor we have ever dealt with hands down. From planning to designing to installing to follow up. They do it all and their customer service is #1. I will never go to any other nursery again. We had an issue with a valve after install and they were there within 20 minutes to resolve the issue. They even came out a week later to check up on it. Thank you Eric and Carlos. These guys were top notch.

My entire family and I went here to look at some citrus trees. Alvin helped us pick just the right one for all of us(Cocktail fruit tree w/Lemon, Ruby Red Grapefruit and Arizona Sweet Orange) and spent some time discussing everything from watering, fertilizing and pruning, as well as what to expect during delivery and planting. Aaron and his team came just this morning to deliver and plant. I showed him the area I was planning on planting and after taking his advice we moved the location just a few feet taking in mind some things I hadn't thought of. They were very quick and professional, and made no mess and Aaron went over some details about my soil specifically and watering recommendations and some things to look out for.I can't wait to go back to the Nursery for more. Very very pleased and happy with the service and products. I can't forget to mention how clean and organized the nursery was too.

A huge variety of all things landscape vines, canes, cactus, succulents, roses, trees of all types, ground cover and decor... I can't say enough good. Make the trip you won't be disappointed. �

I love this nursery. Just don't go touching any overturned pots. Got bit by a scorpion two years ago checking for price tag. No one offered me any assistance except for a bag of ice. Had to drive myself to the ER in scrutiating pain. Completely my fault for trying to turn the pot over. Other than that It's a great place offering many varieties of plants and trees.

I'm a 77 year old plant enthusiast and master gardener and have lived in several states. In the last 35 years, I've found 2 Nurseries that get my business---30 + years with Fry Nursery and Landscaping in WNC and, most recently, over the last 2 + years with Desert Horizon. Enthusiastic friendly service with a very knowledgeable staff that bends over backward to find plants, solve problems, replace plants that have died mysterious deaths---then figure out what is happening in my yard, so as not to have either of us become frustrated again. Then there the POTS!! Never have I seen such beauties---designed my own fountain with 3 and ---again---had problems that took many man hours to solve and never had a bill for all these extras---THAT is SERVICE---worth my recommending Desert Horizon Nursery to anyone who will listen!

This is a great place to walk around and look at the pottery and metal sculptures as well as the water features (water lillies!!) . It's near impossible to leave without a new addition to the yard or garden.

This is one of the best/ if not the best nurseries I've ever happened upon. Went to QC to the "pork store" and passed, so we stopped. I've been looking for "exotic" species of "aloe" plants and they had 2 so I got them. Also bought a "grape" bush/vine and it actually has grapes on it already. Their plants and cactus are priced no more than depot. And they have a huge selection of large pots at reasonable prices. I recommend checking it out. Worth the drive to. Queen Creek!!!
