Olive's is celebrating our 78th year in the Family!
"Frozen" no longer playing in West Texas!
The story of God coming into the world as a baby is worth reading.
You'll find the most detailed account starting at Luke 1:26 in the Bible.
As I get older I realize that everything we read may be true or half-true or false.
How do we know what to believe?
We do some research, ask some questions, look at corresponding accounts,
but ultimately we decide and take a leap of faith.
Even an article online or in the Wall Street Journal is believed in part by faith.
One Saturday morning in 1972 while I was at Texas Tech
I decided to take God at His word.
I decided to believe the Bible.
I told God if it was proven false, I would stop believing.
I have believed it ever since.
That was almost 60 years ago!
It's made my life good.
It's been exciting, rewarding, transforming.
And it's there for you.
I really think you will find Olive's a pleasant place to be.
And you should check us out on Facebook
Apply Olive's OIL to your lawn.
Prune, especially if you feel like it!
It's always ime to care for your landscape!
It takes three to five years for a tree to get rooted enough to want to grow a big top!
If you plant now, the roots will grow everyday, even when it's cold!
Trees and shrubs will be better established if planted now
and better able to handle the summer heat!
Olive's was started in 1942 by my Grandfather, Walter Eric Olive. That was 78 years ago! We've accumulated some experience over the years and hope to share it with you through this website. Some people are considered experts when they've been doing the same thing for over forty years, so if you want to ask me lawn and garden, pond, or any question, just email me (Tommy Olive) at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back with my best answer.
When you're sick, you want an experienced doctor. When your landscape is ailing, you want the same thing. We've helped thousands of West Texans be successful in their landscapes. Whether it's tired, yellow lawns or sick shrubs and trees, we can help. I believe in working with nature. We know which plants and trees do well here, which are challenging, and which are impossible to grow. You're on the Net so you must like to browse here: when you find what sounds like the best plant ever, you might want to check with my experience before you invest your money, sweat, and time. There are alot of continuous flowering plants that do great right here in West Texas. We're here when you need us. We've been a family owned garden center all my life!
Over thirty years ago I discovered organic gardening. This was after selling organic cures and native plants in the 70's totally unsuccessfully. I learned that success was found in the soil. Good healthy soil grows good, healthy plants. I developed our own bio-stimulant back then that we call Olive's OIL. For more info check out our Organic Gardening section.
We're also experts in Water Gardening. I built my first pond in 1976. What a blessing when we realized rubber could be used instead of concrete. What's the difference in designing a water garden and a Koi pond? How do you control green water and string alge? What plants will grow around and in the pond? Should I invest in a Bio-Fall and Skimmer and a UV light? We're here for you! Contact us (ask for Stevo, our water garden expert) with your questions. We are an Aquascape dealer.
I installed my first gravel yard about 43 years ago. It was on Rockbrook which was the southern edge of town back then. I put beds next to the house and some kidney shaped beds out in the gravel. It's still there today! At the time I'd never heard of the term Xeriscape. Since then I've learned alot that may benefit you.
My mother started handling gifts, home decor and Christmas in the mid-fifties. My wife, Debbie, has continued all that and added a boutique. We've got tops, dresses, sun dresses, pants, jewelry, and I don't know what all!

Community Bible Study is a good way to understand the Bible.
We have small groups for women, men, and couples. We are currently Zooming.
Normally we meet at the Heights Church at 6:30 on Mondays for about 1 1/2 hours. We are studying the gospel of John. It's designed for beginners to experts, and for unbelievers who want to see for themselves if there's any truth in the Bible. CBS is really a self-study Bible study. Five days each week questions guide you into your personal study of the passage. We will start with the first word in chapter one and continue through the end. But we do it together also. We come to "class" and hear others' answers and give ours if we want to. I give a short talk (that's you get by a link to a video) and we dismiss. On Tuesdays you read a scholarly commentary on the passage. We are not a church or affilliated with any church. We are being transformed by God's word in order to be His disciples wherever we are. Call me at 325-895-1101 if you want to know more. Tommy (You can go to CommunityBibleStudy.com and find our coed class)
