our history, our passion

Fulfilling a passion for creative landscaping was the driving force behind the start of FarWest back in 1976. We installed landscapes for clients in Boise. FarWest Landscape purchased 3 acres in 1985 just outside the city limits of Boise on State Street and became FarWest Landscape and Garden Center. A simple sheet of plywood with the name FarWest Landscape and Garden Center was hung on a pole frame along State Street to invited gardeners to stop in Boise’s newest Garden Center.

Two employees were hired to run the garden center and both are still part of FarWest.  Dennis Fix,  BSU college student, was one of those employees hired back in 1985 and after graduation, h purchased FarWest. He and his wife Maya along with an incredible staff continue to run FarWest today.

Garden enthusiast spread the word of this new nursery with amazing plant selection, and great service. The landscape department grew from a single designer and crew to an award winning Landscape division with over 3 designers and staff of up to 30. Our designs and landscapes are recognized as the standard for quality and creativity within our industry.

Today FarWest operates on over 7 acres has expanded the facilities, services and product to the needs of the Treasure Valley. The passion to create, & inspire was handed down from the original owner to the new owners and now on to the employees that represent Boise’s Premier Landscape and Garden Center experience.

For 40 years FarWest’s passion for inspiring landscapes and unique plants has driven our desire to become your inspiration. We hope you will come see us; we look forward to your visit!
