Any business that’s been around for more than 80 years has a story to tell, and Engledow has more than a few. We’ve captured our history in five short videos that explain where we’ve been, our culture, and the reasons so many people in Central Indiana trust the Engledow name.
So sit back, grab some popcorn, and settle in for some relaxing viewing about what it takes to make it for more than eight decades in the landscaping business.
80 Years and Counting
In 1932, as America was in the early throes of the Great Depression, B.T. Engledow bought a Ford Model A truck and launched his own landscaping business. That spirit of determination has guided Engledow throughout our history—and it’s why we’re still here today.
Cultivating a Great Team
The culture we’ve helped create at Engledow is one of the biggest reasons for our prolonged success. We look for employees who share our single-minded passion for landscaping and horticulture—which isn’t the easiest way to staff a landscaping company, but it’s been well worth it.
A Bold Beginning
Our founder B.T. Engledow was an ambitious man, and it didn’t take him long to land his first big client: the Eagle Crest Forest Preserve (better known today as Eagle Creek Park). He and his crew planted thousands of trees in the area over several decades, and today it’s one of the most beautiful outdoor attractions in the state.
Bringing Downtown to Life
Central Indiana is our home, and we’re proud to be a part of the Indianapolis community. We’ve experienced the rapid growth of the city first-hand, and we’ve contributed in our own small way to its ongoing success and transformation by beautifying downtown with lush plant life.
A Truly Super Event
While Engledow is best known for landscaping, we’re also in the events business. Our events division has a reputation for using plants and décor in interesting and exciting ways—and we were lucky enough to get the chance to show our stuff at Super Bowl XLVI, helping make it a big hit for the city of Indianapolis.
