A Little Bit About Our Company
who we are | what we do | & why we do it
We want to change the way people view their environment, one yard at a time.
That has been our business philosophy since 1999. Providing our customers with an outdoor environment that is sustainable, maintainable and enjoyable is our primary goal. We do this the old-fashioned way, without the use of chemicals, but instead with a deep respect for the natural world and very close attention to detail. We believe that our extensive knowledge is what helps us bring about the potential for vivid and vibrant landscapes of all kinds, and in all seasons.
How we started Gardens Are
In September of 1999, we set out on an adventure armed with the idea that we could cause change through organics. We had seen the adverse effects of chemicals on the landscape firsthand and knew that we could make a difference by bringing the focus back to what nature intended.
We worked toward a new concept of landscaping and lawn and garden maintenance based upon long-forgotten ideas:
- Plants grow best in their native habitat
- Ammendments are only justified when they are truly needed
- Knowledge and attention to detail bring about the most stunning results.
And so it began 12 years ago when we started out with an Oldsmobile, a few shovels and plenty of knowledge. We made it work, one yard at a time. We built our business around the (at the time) unproven concept of organic landscaping and gardening. The results spoke for themselves, and the business slowly expanded to include full service consulting, landscaping, garden design and property maintenance, including snow and ice management and erosion control.
