Harry Villarreal

After working in the garden center and gaining field knowledge working on landscape crews here at Gill’s, Harry apprenticed under James Gill to learn landscape design. In Fall 2019, Harry began taking on his own full-scale designs and installations.

Harry is a Corpus Christi native and knows our area and conditions very well. He brings his flexible and fun attitude to each project. He believes the landscape should match the style of the property and the owner’s lifestyle to create unity and practical outdoor spaces that can be enjoyed. His passion is to create something unique, tailored for each home or business.

Doing it yourself?

For those who want to “Do-It-Yourself,” we have a do-it-yourself packet in our garden center. This packet gets you thinking about your landscape area, your style preferences, wind and sun exposures, how you are going to use it and more! It teaches you how to sketch your area and even gives you graph paper for your drawing. Once you have completed our “DIY” packet, bring it in to our garden center and begin making your plant selections. Texas Certified Nursery Professionals are always here to help.
