Planting Guide and Warranty


Complete the Loma Vista warranty card at the time of purchase and receive a one year warranty on most trees and shrubs.  Before you plant, it's important to know your site and plant health requirements.  Our Planting Guide and Warranty sheet has several tips for quickly establishing plants in your landscape along with details on our one year and five year warranties. 



5 Year Warranty with Myke Purchase




Plant with MYKE and have a healthier plant. It's guaranteed! Mycorhizae increases the nutrients and water absorption from the soil resulting in a plant that gets established faster in the landscape. With the purchase of the appropriate amount of MYKE, you will receive a five year warranty on most trees and shrubs. This is a one time warranty, customer must provide original sales receipt and bring in the dead plant to be replaced. See a sales associate at the nursery for the details.





Our groundcovers are available in a variety of sizes including landscape flats, quarts and gallons.  Below is a chart to help with determining the number of plants needed for a landscape bed.




Fundraising Events at Loma Vista


You provide the goodies, we'll provide the space.  Local civic organizations including youth church, scout and school groups are welcome to hold their fundraisers at the garden center.  Create a successful fundraiser by inviting the community, your friends and family.  Promote your event while getting ready and during the day on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.  Let the community know who you are and what the raised funds will be used to support.  We'll promote your event on our Facebook page and website.  Don't forget to bring eye catching signs, displays, coins and dollars for making change, a table and chairs, and adult supervision!  Call Susan at 913-897-7010 or email to schedule your fundraising event.
