A GARDEN STORE AND SO MUCH MORE

Located on South Congress, just 2 miles south of downtown Austin, we are by definition an urban garden center. However, with 2 acres of majestic Oak Trees, a serene waterfall, a gigantic wind chime, and a tropical greenhouse The Great Outdoors is a bucolic destination garden center. We carry a wide selection of native and adapted plants suitable for Central Texas gardens. Our inventory includes seasonal vegetables, perennials, cactus and succulents, indoor plants, palm trees shrubs, water plants, vines, roses, fruit trees, and more.

But, we aren’t just about plants here at The Great Outdoors. We are a full-scale garden center. Learn more about our rooms & programs.

Hours:

Monday - Saturday 9 am to 6 pm - Sunday 10 am to 6 pm.

our services

While we know the importance of starting a garden with a well-designed plan, we also value the Do-it-Yourself mind set. With this in mind, we offer three design services (Garden Coach, Plan and Plant, and Off-Site Consultations), delivery, and special orders to help you achieve a great garden.
