Growing Strong

We Grow Together

After 120 years of growing, we know what makes a business thrive: teamwork. Just like the gardens we tend to, each Smith Gardens office and facility is teeming with passion and life.

Our collaborative team culture, collective expertise and enthusiasm for horticulture is what makes all the difference for our customers and employees alike. We genuinely love what we do – and we bring our best to every day and every crop in our facilities.
