Founded in 1980 by Bruce Forde, Forde Nursery has grown into a year-round garden center and landscaping operation that serves the Great Falls area from Helena to the Canadian border. 

The landscape division of Forde Nursery has distinguished itself as one of the leading design/build firms in the state. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with beautiful and unique designs and experienced crews to see the jobs through to completion. 

Forde Nursery's mission is to provide our customers with the highest-quality, hardy plant material available. We feel it is our responsibility to ensure their landscaping projects are successful through education and personal assistance.

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you have the opportunity to visit our nursery in person.
