I really think you will find Olive's a pleasant place to be.
And you should check us out on Facebook
This is a good time to prevent grubworms!
Olive's was started in 1942 by my Grandfather, Walter Eric Olive. That was 81 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 [email protected] and I'll get back with my best answer. Or better yet, come see me and our excellent staff!.
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 our 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, literally (and I was born in the mid-1900's!).
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 with your questions. We are an Aquascape dealer.
I installed my first gravel yard about 45 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!

Christmas Wish (but good all year!)
I wish you a Merry Christmas, but I wish you so much more.
Moments of merriment are so good for us. I llike to have a good time!
In every season my favorite moments are those when He speaks to me.
I wish you some of those moments this Christmas (and every season)
It takes some diligence.
In today's digital age just shutting off the world for a few moments is a sizable task.
But it's required.
Separate yourself from the world and to Him.
In the beginning it may take quite an effort, but be diligent; it's worth it.
We are told in Deuteronomy 4:29b, "You will seek the Lord your God,
and you will find Him if you seek with all your heart and with all your soul."
(Jeremiah repeated this in 29:13)
Sounds like it may take some diligence.
And it sounds like a promise.
This Christmas spend quality moments with your God. And every season!
Community Bible Study is a good way to understand the Bible.
We started this year on August 14th. But I started coming years ago in October! It went well because every lesson stands alone. I didn't have to go back and catch up, it just flowed onward!
We have small groups for women, men, and couples. We meet at the Heights Church at 6:30 on Mondays for about 1 1/2 hours. We take a Christmas break and start up again in early January and end of April. 2023-24 we will study Ruth, 1& 2 Samuel and Ephesians. 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 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, Tommy, at 325-895-1101 if you want to know more. (You can go to CommunityBibleStudy.com. Our class is San Angelo EVE. There is another great class for women-only that meets on Wednesdays around noon and includes children!)
