It’s Not Too Early to Plan This Season’s Outdoor Spaces

At Pine Lane Nursery, the Planting has Already Begun

Spring in Colorado is filled with sunny afternoons and mild temperatures, making it the perfect time to get outside and start planting. It still gets chilly at night, and many of us think it is too early to start planning our long-awaited outdoor spaces.

But the work has already begun at Pine Lane Nursery Garden Center, where Angie and Kurt Hughes are excited to welcome some new plant varieties this spring. The sprawling, 9-acre yard is a hidden gem, including nine greenhouses, tucked away in the middle of Parker.

The yard is filled with large trees, shrubs and perennials fit for Parker’s unique climate and soil. The greenhouses are preparing colorful annual and perennial plants, as well unique hanging baskets that bring bright color to any space and bloom all summer long.

And no outdoor space is complete without patio furniture, a fire pit, a vegetable garden and beautiful pottery. From strawberries to basil, Pine Lane has it all. Inside the shop, you will find a vast collection of seeds, gifts, gardening tools and pottery. It makes it easy to start planning and planting your garden.

New to gardening? No problem. Pine Lane offers garden design and planting services at your home. Or, you can take the mess to the nursery and use its unique planting station. Whatever your choice, the staff at Pine Lane is eager to help you transform your outdoor living space every step of the way so you can enjoy your yard all spring and summer long.

At Pine Lane, the Hughes family strives to create a customer service experience that is both educational and personal. The green business is in the Hughes’ blood. Angie and Kurt have been in business at Pine Lane Nursery for the last eight years. However, they are no strangers to Parker or to the landscaping business. Hughes Landscaping started in Parker more than 30 years ago.

The family tradition continues with their eldest son, Riley, who has played an active role in the success and growth of Pine Lane Nursery. Riley graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in horticulture and nursery management. Sam, the couple’s middle son, is currently studying horticulture at CSU with plans to get more involved after graduation.

Walking the grounds with Angie is a delight as she shows off the acres of blooms and buds. The selection of trees and their sizes is enormous, offering everything from apple trees to native Colorado Blue Spruces. Whatever you are looking for, you’ll discover a fantastic variety, along with the knowledge that these plants have been cared for with love and enthusiasm.

Angie enjoys taking care of the yard at the nursery and can be seen there working with the design specialists and sales folks, as well as interacting with customers. She is excited this spring to be able to start planning and planting a bit early so she and her entire team can offer the community quality plants and trees from a truly family environment.

“We really are your go-to for instant gratification trees,” says Angie.

For the Hughes family, Pine Lane Nursery is a second home where they hope to make all customers feel welcome and appreciated. They offer a wide variety of resources to help ensure your success. Information regarding how to choose the best plants for your yard, how to plant and how to water are readily available in the store and on the website.
