Lawn & Garden Help


Blackburn Nursery is a local, family owned business established in 1936 by Tom and Ruth Blackburn as Blackburn Lawn Service. With a borrowed rake, shovel and wheelbarrow they set out to become "the name" in the lawn, garden, landscape, and maintenance business.

Installing landscape plantings, trimming trees and shrubs, mowing lawns, and even installing one of the first irrigation systems in this part of the Midwest, were the order of the day in that first year. The business quickly became a great success.

In early 1973 the ownership of the business changed to Jim and Barbara Blackburn and the name changed to Blackburn Nursery and Lawn Service which better reflected the direction of the business.

Ever changing and expanding, the business was purchased in 1995 by the current owners Suzy and Brett Blackburn (a third generation owner and fourth generation nurseryman). Growing and expanding every year, Blackburn's has seen many changes over the years with a Full Service Nursery & Garden Store (including thousands of annuals and perennials in greenhouses), Landscape Design & Installation, Lawn Irrigation, Landscape Lighting, Site Planning, Lawn Renovation, Retaining Walls and much more.

Our current focus is the highest quality plant material from the best growers, prompt, professional, courteous client service, and an expanding Home and Garden Showroom.

Our relationships with various buying groups give us the buying power to offer product selection and prices that allow us to keep our prices low and compete with the national chains, yet we retain the high quality, helpful service and friendly, neighborly approach to business our clients have come to expect.

We moved to a new state of the art facility located on 33+ acres in 2001 to lead our industry in northeast Kansas into the new millennium with a much wider variety of merchandise, goods and services.

If you're looking for anything home, lawn, or garden related;chances are if we don't have it, we can get it . If not, we can help you find out where to buy it at an affordable price.

Thank You for your interest and patronage,
