Turf & Lawn

While we do not sell turf at Rainbow Gardens, we DO provide San Antonio homeowners with everything else they need to have a healthy, lush lawn.

Trees & Shrubs

Trees and shrubs are a home investment. Learning how to care and provide for them is essential.

Roses

Roses delight us with their beautiful blooms and delightful scent. In San Antonio, we get to enjoy two seasons of these gorgeous flowers as most bloom in both spring and fall.

Annuals & Perennials

Creating a landscape full of both annuals and perennials ensures that you won’t be without color for any length of time.

Pollinators

We strive to not only bring you the best pollinator plant selection in town, but to also provide you with information on how to grow and maintain them.

Pests & Diseases

Pests and disease are two major problems in the gardening world. If you don’t catch them early, they can quickly destroy the plants you have spent hours growing and caring for.

Edibles

Our mild climate in San Antonio allows us to grow a numerous amount of delicious edible crops throughout multiple growing seasons.

Soil & Compost

Soil is the basic foundation for sustainable plant life, but there is nothing “basic” about it.

We encourage San Antonio residents to plant more native, xeriscape, and wildflowers to help restore our local ecosystems.

Groundcovers and ornamental grasses consist of favorite and unique specimens that add a variety of textures, interest, and color to your landscapes.
