when entrepreneur, Todd Culver started a lawn mowing business at the age of 12 in Dallas Texas. Originally from Iowa, Todd moved back to Cedar Rapids in 1984 where he continued his lawn and landscaping services and met Tami his wife. Now 30 years later, the two have grown and developed the company to encompass one of the most recognized landscaping companies in Iowa, a full service garden center with gift shop, greenhouse, and landscape nursery.

Culver’s has continued to develop and change the outlook of the business every single year. You will find 3 ponds on the premises, one specifically a Koi pond. The beauty of the water and comforting sounds, accent the grounds at Culver’s. Children, adults and even the staff love to feed the Koi and relax on the deck while watching all their beautiful colors glisten in the water.
Next, enjoy walking the paths among the display gardens where you’ll find mature plants labeled appropriately and see just how a particular plant grows in the landscape. Then, the walk by the waterfall…most definitely a point where many stop for a photo opportunity! At Culver’s we just don’t show you a sample paver and design on paper. You get to walk paths and paths of different styles and colors to choose from. We offer our guests a better image for how their ending project will appear. The creative staff at Culver’s has put forth a great effort to design and install remarkable displays that are absolutely gorgeous!
New in the summer of 2012, Culver’s landscape added a brand new paver patio. Now, a place to entertain and enjoy two fireplaces, 1 upright and 1 5’ round one with 3 ringed gas inserts, and a beautiful outdoor kitchen including a pizza oven! It’s been a wonderful place to hold wine tasting events and the stage has hosted many local performers and even a wedding. All of this is created to help show the customer not only the superb quality of work Culvers provides, but also the possibilities of what we can help them achieve at their own home or business.
