Great landscaping adds to the value of a home while lowering maintenance time. When you have finished square footage outside, special events can be planned at home. Let’s face it, once the great Minnesota summers get here, there is nothing better than grilling outdoors or lounging with friends and family! Brad Snortum takes the time to get to know you and keeps your satisfaction a priority throughout the project. He cares how you and your family plan to use the space. Brad can work with you and design and implement that perfect vision! As a Company, we believe in staying up to date with the newest products and techniques. The installation team has worked together season after season. They are the hands on professionals that pay attention to detail. Every time. Every job!

The Snortum family has been servicing western Minnesota since the late 1800′s. Nils Snortum traveled the rural Canby area on horseback, taking orders for nursery stock. The Spring delivery came by train and Nils to waiting customers. He also started a grocery business in Canby, MN in 1890. His son, Randolf, grew up to start a greenhouse in 1937, near the family home. For years, the Canby Floral Company was the largest in the area. Darold Snortum followed in Randolf’s footsteps, but added the new landscaping business in 1930. In the early 50′s, the business expanded to include stores in Dawson and Madison. The name was changed to Snortum’s Flowers and Nursery Incorporated. Darold and his wife Olga raised three boys and not surprisingly, two became landscapers. In 1976, Steve Stortum opened Snortum’s Nurseries in Granite Falls, MN. Brother Pete is in Canby, Mn. Steve’s two sons represent the fifth generation of landscapers and plant experts. Brian in Sioux Falls, SD and in 2009 Brad came to open Snortum’s Landscape and Design in Ortonville. And yes, he has a son. A family business builds on what works. Each family, each generation learns to participate and add to the success. Experience, knowledge, and the desire to do excellent work for our customers is what the Snortum's are all about.

In 2015 we expanded to North Dakota and look forward to bringing the same work ethic and loyalty to the people of North Dakota.
