They raised 3 sons, and the youngest one, Larry, joined his father in the business after receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Horticulture in 1973 from Purdue. The business was then purchased in 1983 by Larry and his wife, Cindy. They incorporated in 1995 as Hoffman Nursery and Landscaping, Inc.
Additional ground was purchased in anticipation of moving the business to new ground for growing purposes and erecting a new building for a garden center, offices, and storage building for equipment. The new facility on 16 acres of land located at the corner of St Rd 15 and 200 N was opened in 2000 by Larry and Cindy.
In 2001 Brian returned after graduating from Purdue in horticulture and joined as the third generation of the business. The business has added hardscapes as another primary landscape service and installs walks, patios, retaining walls, fireplaces, etc. Turf and landscape maintenance programs were added in 2012.
Beginning January 1, 2013, the business took ownership of Scott's Landscape Services in North Manchester, IN. Adding mowing and irrigation services with the expansion now makes the business a full service landscape company!
From humble beginnings, this family business continues to grow today at their two current locations.
