GardenArt Goes Back to School


The past few weeks, the GardenArt crew has been working hard to assist the Tippecanoe School Corporation get ready for the first day of school. Each school had its own unique projects and designs but GardenArt stepped up and got the job done. Working to support kids especially within our public schools gives GardenArt special pride and satisfaction. Below are examples of three of the projects recently completed by GardenArt.



Burnett Creek Elementary School


In preparation for the students to return to school, the playground area needed new mulch. For a school like Burnett Creek, this is an important and massive job. GardenArt was excited to be a part of the project.

Harrison High School


Harrison High was the recipient of monetary gift to add new trees in the Raiders’ athletic complex. It was important to get these new trees planted before the first home game. GardenArt managed the entire project for TSC and the trees look beautiful in their new home. Harrison Raiders fans and athletes will be able to enjoy this new cluster of trees for many years to come.

Klondike Middle School


TSC needed some modifications to the main front entrance of Klondike Middle School. Tapping into GardenArt’s expertise and experience with impressive entrances, stone walls and outdoor spaces, TSC engaged the crew at GardenArt for this design and installation. The new entrance and wall was completed just in time for the onslaught of tweens and teens in just a few days.

Nanshan – Plants Establish and Mature


2013-06-06 Nanshan Fountain - Roses 036 (3)


The GardenArt crew has been hard at work implementing the next phase of the landscape design created exclusively for Nanshan America AAT, Lafayette, Indiana. This project is unique in many ways for GardenArt. First, the scope, size and time table sets it apart from most other projects. Nanshan America like most successful international companies demands from its partners – quality, attention to detail, and integrity – and they not only trust GardenArt with this highly visible project but also requested continued maintenance.


2013-06-06 Nanshan Fountain - Roses 011 (3)


Like all new landscaping installations, it takes 12 to 18 months to see the plants establish and mature. On a recent visit to the Nanshan property, the native plants, grasses, and flowers look brilliant – just like GardenArt had planned. Check out these impressive photos of the rose garden at one of the entrances, the plants at the entrance and plant sign, and the landscape around the pond.

Next, GardenArt will be installing the water feature in the Nanshan pond. Photos of the installation will be coming soon. {Sneak Peek in picture below.}

Nanshan America AAT


2013-05-22 Nanshan 079 (2)


One of GardenArt’s most prestigious clients is Nanshan America Advanced Aluminum Technologies in Lafayette, Indiana. This plant is the company’s first US manufacturing site.


2013-05-22 Nanshan 005 (2)


Nanshan America AAT, being new to the community, wanted to have an immediate positive impact in the region and establish itself as a genuine community partner to all. GardenArt worked with Nanshan’s Development Team, Link Management and several other trades to accomplish that goal in the overall appearance of their entire property.

This project is unique in many ways for GardenArt. First, the scope, size and time table sets it apart from most other GardenArt projects. GardenArt created an overall landscape design for Nanshan that covers more than 50 acres and will be implemented in phases. The project includes several large and mature trees — some 20 years old and measuring 20 to 30 feet tall (8 inch caliper). Second, the GardenArt design for Nanshan also includes a pond that enhances the landscape of the entire area and greets guests at the entrance of their property. Finally, the pond area introduces native plant species as well as a fountain.

Last summer for the plant opening, GardenArt designed and installed all of the trees, plants, and gardens at the new facility in Lafayette. GardenArt planted more than 20,000 native plant plugs including a wide variety of native wild flowers and grasses (forbs and graminoids).

This summer, GardenArt will add the water fountain to the Nanshan pond. Photos of the fountain installation will be posted soon.

GardenArt’s Adopt-A-Spot Work Day 2013 — New and Improved


GardenArt is the proud sponsor of an
Adopt-A-Spot in the City of Lafayette.


2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 275 (2) Fuse


This past weekend the entire GardenArt team was eager to get started on their Adopt-A-Spot – even though it was early on a Saturday morning. Saturday morning’s installation though was only one step in the detailed process.


2013-05-09 GardenArt Shipment 058 (2)


The first step in the process is planning and design. This year, GardenArt landscape designers decided to completely redesign the “Spot” and focus on “native plants.” The next step was to draw up the designs and select the plants. Once the designs were complete, the materials were ordered and the date for installation was set. By Thursday the plants arrived, Adopt-A-Spot T-shirts were 2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 018 (2)distributed, and everyone was ready to get started. Before the end of the day on Friday, the plants, tools and materials were gathered, the equipment was prepped, the water buffalo was filled, the mulch was measured and everything was loaded on the GardenArt trucks.


On Saturday morning, everyone met at GardenArt HQ, enjoyed a quick doughnut or two, secured the trucks and equipment, and headed to the GardenArt Adopt-A-Spot 2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 062 (2)location in Lafayette. Once the team arrives at the “Spot” the magic began. Everyone was given their assignment and the team began to work. Even though it was a cold but sunny morning the crew moved swiftly and efficiently. Stage one of the installation included clearing the entire area. It is a relatively routine process except for removing a few shrub stumps and roots. The entire area was finally cleared, weeded, leveled and edged; then the mulching 2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 072 (2)began. It took no time to empty an entire dump truck filled with steaming, high quality mulch. Soon the design team spray-painted lines in the mulch and the flats of native plants started to emerge. Two of the crew drilled holes while others placed plants in the holes and the rest of the crew secured the plants and filled the holes. Orderly rows of plants began to appear and the design was taking shape.


Before they knew it everything was planted and the installation entered the final 2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 123 (2)stages — clean, water plants, sweep, water, touch up mulch, blow debris, pack up tools, water, load equipment, water, and clean up the entire area including sidewalks, curbs and the street. The GardenArt team is talented, professional, and motivated – and their work installing this Adopt-A-Spot project is a perfect example of their quality work. Each and every member of the GardenArt team worked very hard and remained focused, respectful and professional the entire morning.


2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 263 (2)


When it was finally completed, no one really wanted to leave. The good feelings and fellowship overcame them. They didn’t expect to have a great time together but they weren’t surprised. Working hard and serving the community while using your talents is rewarding. Coming together for this common purpose had a profound impact on the team as a whole.


2013-05-11 Adopt A Spot 285 (2)


The benefits of the Adopt-A-Spot program are clear – to help beautify Lafayette through sponsorship and allowing local businesses like GardenArt to serve and give back to the community. The less obvious benefit is how much the team grows and develops during the process. Trust was formed, friendships were developed, and lifetime memories were created — that magical morning. The GardenArt team is now stronger than ever. This summer is going to tremendous – and each member of the team has one more project for which to be proud – the GardenArt Adopt-A-Spot.


Please slow down and enjoy it while it grows, blooms and matures. After all this “Spot” is our gift to you!
