Having studied and worked extensively for years with cold-hardy palms in the Southeast as well as the Pacific Northwest regions of the US, Home & Garden Landscapes can transform your landscape into a Palm oasis even if you live in areas where Winter temperatures can reach 5° F or even lower. We ensure the palm selections are being transplanted from farms where soil and climatic conditions are most complementary to your environment and are most likely to succeed. Cold-hardy Palms are ideal for adding that tropical touch to swimming pools for many reasons including compact root systems which are ideal for small planting spots and for their lack of dropping debris which can often end up in a pool. We have an extensive selection of larger sizes in 2 of the most desired cold-hardy palm types including Windmill Palm and Needle Palm which are ideally suited for regions where temperatures can sometimes flirt with the lower single digits.
Cold Hardy Palm Landscape

This combination planting of Windmill Palm, Cabbage Palm and Yucca Rostrata were installed and photographed after a January 2008 snow store in Durham, North Carolina. These trees are cold hardy even with temperatures in the mid-teens as shown here.
Mediterranean Style Tropical Landscape
Fayetteville , North Carolina
This landscape installation east of Raleigh was done using Cabbage Palms, Windmill Palms, Pindo Palms and Sago Palms to complement the Mediterranean look and feel of this stunning new home. The owners are from a Mediterranean region and wanted a landscape that reminded them of home. Over 60 palms were used in this landscape installation. Fayetteville is located in Zone 8 which allows for the use of a wider range of palms.
Upstate South Carolina Estate

This upstate South Carolina homeowner used a combination of Windmill Palms, Colorado Blue Spruce, Crape Myrtle, Cabbage Palm, Gardenia and Red Barberry for an updated landscape look. These cold-tolerant palms and heat-tolerant evergreens formed an unique contrast in this garden.
