About Us

Over the last 40 years Geist Nursery has grown to include both a full service DESIGN FIRM and GARDEN CENTER in Fishers, Indiana. What began as a Landscape Design & Installation operation has expanded to include a retail outlet for Annuals, Perennials, Shrubs, Trees, Tropicals, Mulch, Pottery, Organic Garden Care, and much more! We encourage you to browse our website and visit our Garden Center this season.  We are completely family owned and operated and have been in the same location (our home!)  for 40 years.  When you support us, you are also supporting your neighbor!
