The Nursery is home to not only the healthiest plants, but also some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable plant experts in the basin.

At Tahoe Outdoor Living, we have over 30 years of landscaping experience and specialize in plants proven to thrive in the Lake Tahoe basin. Every plant is handpicked especially for our Tahoe community.



Great selection, healthy plants, supplies and a friendly and knowledgeable staff will keep your garden looking its best. Located on Emerald Bay Road in South Lake Tahoe.

Fully Stocked With Great Selection

Our diverse selection of trees and shrubs are boosted by weekly and monthly deliveries to maintain our high standards, and we offer only the healthiest plants.

We are fully stocked with vibrant annuals, hardy and adaptive perennials, drought resistant natives, ground covers and grasses. Our popular, and hard to find, natives go fast so make sure to visit us soon.  We stock Mule Ears, Indian Rhubarb, Asters, California Fuchsia, and Mountain Pride. We also have the popular, and highly sought after, Creeping Buttercup and Blue Flax. Our selection will bring the forest meadow to your backyard!


Sod For the Tahoe Basin

In stock at all times is our lovely cool green turf from ‘West Turf Reno’. With its low clay content, we promise great results. For orders over 1000 sq. ft. we can special order.

 Turf temperatures can be up to be 20 degrees cooler than bare soil. A cool chill-out spot for pets and all the family!


Herbs & Veggies

We also carry a diverse selection of popular hardy vegetables and herbs that are resistant to early/late freezes. This includes lettuce, mint, oregano, thyme, peppers, and more. Our vegetables and herbs will grow great in your garden and taste wonderful in those summer barbecues.


Supplies to Keep Your Garden Looking Great All Year

To ensure that your plants grow strong and healthy, check out our garden supplies and pick up some bags of premium potting soil, steer manure, soil builder, and/or compost. Organic alternatives are available to protect our treasured pollinators.




Need Instant Color?

Come and check out our selection of hanging baskets. These are a beautiful and easy way to brighten your garden. At only $24, they provide immediate gratification and a pop of color to enjoy for the rest of the summer.

At Tahoe Outdoor Living we are proud to partner with plant nurseries that not only grow wonderful healthy plants but also utilize sustainable practices. By saving and reusing water on their properties, they work to limit pressure on our water supplies, an important and proactive need in the face of the western drought.
