2013-06-10 Staff Photos AndyStrangeAndy is originally from Lafayette, Indiana and graduated from McCutcheon High School and Ivy Tech Community College (Lafayette). He has been with GardenArt for six years and is a Project Supervisor. Andy earned a Certificate in Landscape Management and certification as a Pesticide Applicator.

He and his wife of five years, Jackie, have a six-month old baby boy, Lucas, and a cat; and in March 2013 Andy and Jackie bought their first home in West Lafayette. In addition to his work with GardenArt, Andy coaches semi-professional football after a few years as a semi-pro football player. He is a Notre Dame Irish fan and enjoys his family and friends — aspiring to be the best father, husband and friend that he can be.

Andy takes great pride in his work with GardenArt. He enjoys working closely with clients to create the outdoor living spaces of their dreams. Andy feels most proud when a project is completed and the client is overjoyed with their new outdoor environment. Although he is passionate about and committed to his work with GardenArt, Andy still dreams of someday coaching the Indianapolis Colts or the University of Notre Dame football team.

Celebrating 10 Years – Launching Facebook Page


GardenArt Celebrates 10 Years – Launches Facebook Page


GardenArtCelebrating10Years


In March 2013, GardenArt kicked off its 10th anniversary year with a special luncheon for their entire GardenArt team – and there was even cake! Excitement filled the celebration not only because of GardenArt’s 10th year milestone but also for the anticipation of the Spring season quickly approaching.

Founded by Sean Sullivan and Dan Vawter on March 17, 2003, GardenArt has established itself as the premier commercial and residential landscaping firm in central Indiana. Creating breathtaking and unique outdoor spaces and structures for both commercial and residential properties is their specialty.

In celebration of their 10th anniversary, GardenArt has embarked on an ambitious project – engaging its clients and the entire community through social media. GardenArt has launched a Facebook page and Twitter account as well as Pinterest boards, blog posts on WordPress, and a Linked In Group and Linked In Company. You can even connect with GardenArt on Houzz.com – and offer a positive review and recommendation, if you choose.


2013-03-18 10th Anniversary Party 025 (2)


GardenArt will continue to celebrate their 10th anniversary by getting more and more involved in the community. In addition to GardenArt’s Adopt-a-Spot and involvement in tree plantings throughout the year, they will become more involved in supporting the community. The best way to stay engaged with GardenArt and to keep up with all of the 10th anniversary excitement is by “Liking” GardenArt on Facebook and “Following” GardenArt on Twitter. If you follow GardenArt through social media you will see many examples of their projects as well as discover what happens behind the scenes. The GardenArt experts will also share tips on keeping your outdoor living spaces alive and vibrant.

At the 10th Anniversary luncheon it was evident that the entire GardenArt team is ready and looking forward to another rewarding season of “Building Customers for Life.”
