We Love Kentucky…

BEAUTIFUL GARDENS OF KENTUCKY: Although starting my landscaping business in 1988, far from home on the rooftop terraces of New York City, I remain a Kentuckian at heart. I was born and raised in Eastern Kentucky, and later attended the University of Kentucky before moving to the Big Apple. During my quarter century career in New York, I cherished every opportunity to return to my Kentucky roots.

Most people know that Kentucky is famous for its farms, horses, bourbon, and basketball. Since the opening of our Lexington, Kentucky office (@ historic Botherum) in 2010, marked by the design and installation of the Kentucky Experience and Alltech Experience gardens at the Alltech 2010 World Equestrian Games, Jon Carloftis Fine Gardens has designed and installed 40 plus residential, commercial, and municipal gardens throughout the State of Kentucky.
