Culture

People First

While caring for plants is our passion, we pride ourselves by taking great care of the people we serve, including our clients, employees, vendors, partners, and community members.

Have Fun

Caring for people and plants is serious business for us, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously while we do it. We strive to make our work enjoyable for our staff and the clients, vendors, and communities we serve.

Better Every Day

Because we’re in this for the long haul, we measure and pride ourselves on the little improvements we make every single day.

History

The Wright Gardner was founded as The Urban Gardner in 1987 by Matthew Gardner in the South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood of San Francisco.

The Urban Gardner became The Wright Gardner in 1992 when John Wright joined the partnership. Together, Wright & Gardner built the company into a leading Bay Area plantscaping company, passionately advancing the view that maintaining live plants in the workplace helps improve productivity by reducing airborne toxins and providing a healthy, low stress, green backdrop for everyday activity.

During his time as TWG’s President, Gardner also served as president of the California Interior Plantscape Association (CIPA), which is now the Plantscape Industry Alliance (PIA), and won the award for Interiors Business Professional of the Year in 2005.

The Wright Gardner has won numerous awards for its projects and continues to be a leader in pushing the envelope of design and maintenance of living indoor plant features in the workplace.

Gardner retired from daily operation of TWG in 2017, transitioning responsibilities to the remaining staff and a new CEO and President, Nick Haschka. Haschka, along with TWG’s seasoned executive management team, are now leading the company into a new era of growth as a thriving plantscaping business.
