Gardens of Growth is a successful landscape architecture design/build firm based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The firm was founded in 2003 by husband and wife team Adam Garvey and Casey May, who met while studying landscape architecture at Ball State University.
We remain committed to acting as both designer and contractor for our projects. While most design/build firms are dominated by contractors, Gardens of Growth is unique in that we are designers first. We approach the design/build process as ‘Master Builders’, where the process of landscape architecture is a holistic approach, with careful attention paid to each phase of the design and construction process. This holistic approach to design and construction provides greater financial and aesthetic control. Beautiful spaces are created when each and every component of the landscape is carefully designed and executed.
