About Us

We’re a homegrown, woman-owned greenhouse and landscaping company that values the natural world and sustainable gardening. We sprouted in 1979 with Heidi’s Lifestyle Gardens, a fine gardening and landscape design and install firm. In 2016, we planted our roots in a five-and-a-half-acre campus where we grow thoughtfully-selected annuals, perennials, herbs, veggies, shrubs, evergreens, fruit trees, and more. With over 40 years of experience, we’re committed and passionate about the green industry, offering native plants that provide numerous benefits to the landscape. Our staff is 57 percent female and includes expert horticulturalists who create and maintain beautiful gardens to enhance our clients’ encounters with nature.

Our Mission

  • To enhance the lifestyles of our clients by creating beautiful and sustainable living spaces. 
  • To connect with our community through philanthropic, therapeutic, and cooperative events.
  • To provide a culture of growth and resilience for our team of horticulturalists.


Charitable Giving

We select a nonprofit each year with which we share our time, talents, and treasure. This year, we are giving to Interfaith Outreach, an organization that meets critical needs for thousands of families in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. They, like us, are celebrating their 40th Anniversary. We also support multiple other associations and nonprofits.

Environmental Integrity

At Heidi’s GrowHaus, green living is more than just a practice, it’s a lifestyle. That’s why we

  • Provide an extensive, locally unsurpassed inventory of Minnesota-grown and native plant materials 
  • Focus on edibles, for us and for our pollinators
  • Educate our guests on sustainable practices
  • Practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for plant health
  • Grow all of our plants without neonicotinoid pesticides (a chemical that's tough on the bees)
  • Recycle our plastic pots and greenhouse poly
  • Grow in corn pots and fiber to reduce plastic use
  • Carry organic fertilizers
  • Sell rain chains and rain barrels
  • Capture and reuse water from our roof
  • Culture and sell our own Compost Tea
  • Use and sell locally sourced rice hulls as an amendment
  • Reuse our office paper on both sides of the sheet
  • Use electronic devices, online billing statements, and cloth towels to reduce paper waste
  • Leave greens debris up for the winter and not pull it off site too soon in the spring as dormant insects, good bugs, inhabit the hollow stems of plants
