About us


We are plant-savvy landscaping professionals with a heart for quality work. In Nashville since 1992, we offer a complete spectrum of residential and commercial landscape services at reasonable rates.

Our extensive horticultural insight and expertise allow your landscape to be managed for health and vitality. We understand the constantly evolving nature of plants and work hard year-round for optimum results.

We believe in attention to detail and aren’t into quick fixes or short cuts that could undermine the integrity of your landscape. We prune selectively and fertilize consistently. No fast-food approach to landscape care for us: we know that beautiful spring color and lush summer foliage are the result of fall preparation and winter maintenance.

Moreover, we value our client relationships and strive to provide reliable, worry-free service to meet all of your design, installation and maintenance needs.

With Old South, your landscape will be just as Mother Nature intended: lush, natural, beautiful.
