Celebrating Our 25th Anniversary

Posted on January 2, 2022

This is a big year for us here at Lotus as we’re celebrating 25 years in business! Some of you have been with us since the very beginning in 1997 when Lotus Gardenscapes was started by Guido Kettler as a primarily horticultural maintenance/gardening company. Which is how the name Gardenscapes came to fit.

Since then, we’ve grown to be a comprehensive landscape design-build and construction company with the main focus on high-quality, unique work. 

We are really excited to announce that for our 25th year we are an employee-owned company! The Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) brings many benefits to our team members and we can’t wait to share the benefits with you as the year goes on. 

In 2000, Traven joined as co-owner and brought his knowledge of woodwork and construction. We fine-tuned our skills in stonework and water features and became known for unique and creative waterfalls and ponds, winning several awards. 

Around 2010-2015 we split the company into two parts and started a nursery called Bloom Garden Center and consolidated our 2 locations to have us all be living together at 1885 Baker Rd, which is the historic Sloan barn. 

In 2018 we purchased Greenstreet Tree Care to further expand our services offering large tree removal and plant health care. 

Since merging Lotus & Greenstreet three years ago we have been very busy making sure all of you, our cherished customers, are happy and we are grateful you have stood by us in sometimes very challenging times.  

We’re very excited about where 2022 is going to take the employee-owned Lotus Gardenscapes company and we’re glad to have you on the journey with us!
