Roger and Marie opened the doors of Landsburg Landscape Nursery in 1979 with 3 employees and 1,440 sq. ft of greenhouse space. Today we have more than 53,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space and more than 50 employees! Roger has a B.S. degree in horticulture and a Master’s degree from Michigan State University, and began his career teaching the landscape horticulture program at the Vocational School in Brainerd. Marie, also a former school teacher with a B.S. degree from the University of Minnesota, joined Roger full-time in 1981. Nearing retirement, Roger and Marie have passed most of the responsibilities on to John and Tina. John has a B.S. degree in Horticulture and a minor in business from the University of Minnesota, and Tina who runs the business office, has a B.A. degree in business from the College of St. Scholastica.

Landsburg Landscape Nursery is committed to giving back to our community. Over the years we have given many thousands of dollars to a wide range of causes. We are a strong supporter of Habitat For Humanity which works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. Over the years, Landsburg Landscape Nursery has donated the material, skill and labor to landscape many homes in the Brainerd Lakes Area.
We are big believers in promoting the great outdoors by offering our time and talent in speaking to groups such as garden clubs and sportsman’s groups, as well as lakeshore associations where we help with lakeshore restorations to benefit water quality. We have contributed funds, material, skill and labor to help with the construction of the Gull Lake Sailing School and Family Center, as well as the Northland Arboretum, which is becoming the most broad spectrum arboretum north of the Twin Cities.
Supporting the youth in our community is also a focus. We made a generous monetary donation plus labor, skill and materials to the construction and remodel of the YMCA. We have consistently provided scholarship funds to those attending the University of MN Crookston and Central Lakes College, have been a supporter of Grad Blasts, and have given many school tours of our facility.
Add to that a list of more than 30 charities, benefits and fundraisers to which we donate annually, such as The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, The Brainerd Lakes Veterans Center and individuals facing hardship. Our participation in the community also includes serving on several boards and we are members of such organizations as the local and state Chamber of Commerce, MN Nursery and Landscape Association, Rotary and National Federation of Independent Business.
We are proud to have been a part of this community for over 30 years and feel strongly about supporting the people and organizations that make the Brainerd Lakes Area so special.
Landsburg Landscape Nursery is proud to offer a simple and unique way to help you earn money for your organization. We will give back 10% of every pre-tax dollar spent (or even more if you reach a certain sales volume) in our store by participants associated with your organization during a specific time period. “Fundraising with Flowers” is a wholesome alternative that promotes an increased awareness in our environment, gardening and horticulture, all while providing support for our community. We’ll even help you promote your event. Call for more information.
