About Us

Formed from the merger of Wright Tree Care and Heard Gardens, Wright Outdoor Solutions has been caring for Central Iowa’s outdoor spaces since 1928. In 2013, we purchased local Iowa company The Growing Concern, which allowed us to take our services indoors as well. In 2019, we expanded our reach into the Omaha market through the acquisition of Omaha based company Branching Out, which we reintroduced as Verdure Elements, offering interior plantscaping, seasonal color, and holiday design services.

We are proud to be employee owned and offer the area’s most complete package of services for the care of your property. Our services include tree care, landscaping and maintenance, plant design and maintenance, lawn care, holiday lights and décor, snow and ice management, and mulch.

Our crews are highly trained experts in their fields, and many of our employees are International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborists and members of the National Association of Landscape Professionals. We are also a member of the Accredited Snow Contractors Association. Additionally, Wright Outdoor Solutions was the first company in Iowa to become accredited by the Tree Care Industry Association.

With more than 90 years of experience, you can trust the care of your landscape to the experts at Wright Outdoor Solutions.
