Gregor Gardening & Landscaping, Inc. was founded in 1986 by English gardener, Adrian Gregor, whose vision was to provide clients personalized, quality gardening and landscaping services. We have remained true to that philosophy and are regarded by many as the premier gardening and landscaping company in Georgetown and surrounding communities. We currently serve many satisfied clients who have remained with us for more than 10 years.
We are a boutique, full service landscaping and gardening firm.

At Gregor Gardening, we are proud that many of our employees have a long history with our firm. Our gardeners average more than eight years tenure. Our clients appreciate the knowledgeable and personalized service to their gardens that this continuity affords. Senior staff has nearly a century of combined experience in landscape design and installation, maintenance, and horticulture.
