Starting a Landscape Company

               Jeremy and Julie Berggren started Berggren Blooms together in January of 2000.  

        They named their company Berggren because they wanted to brand their work with their own name.  For them naming a company with their own name denotes quality by stating that they put their name behind the service that they provide.  The second name, Blooms came from more then one thought.  First and probably most obviously because of their expertise in annual plantings and perennial boarders.  "Bloom" of course a word that relates to flowers and landscaping.   For the Berggren's, Blooms also represents a company that is always new, fresh and growing.  More personally, they were expecting the birth of their first child.  Berggren Blooms is more then just a growing company it represents, sort of a growing family and a legacy in its begging.

        Before starting their own company they had met working at a Longmont landscape company.  Both worked at this particular company for about five years.  While working they took Colorado State University's - Master Gardeners Program together.  They also did a lot of their studies in the Horticulture program at Front Range Community Collage.  They enjoyed working at that company together but as they say, not all good things last forever.  The owner of that company eventually sold out and it no longer exists.

        Julie went on to work for The City of Thornton.  She worked for the Parks Department in Landscape, in a division that the City called Botany.  It was not Botany at all, it was actually Urban Horticulture.  She planed and designed the Cities Annual Flower planting program.  Many of the flower beds she designed are still there today despite the Cities growth and many changes.

        Jeremy got his start at a landscape job while in High School.  He worked around Pontiac, Michigan.  After high school he join the U.S. Army and then became a Combat Engineer in 1989.  While stationed at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma Jeremy was assigned to special duty at the Post's Department of Engineering and Housing.  While working in grounds maintenance for the U.S. Army.  In addition to residential areas of Ft. Sill Jeremy took care of the Post Headquarters, the Post Cemetery and the Post Exchange.  In the summer of 1990, for his work in landscaping at Ft. Sill, Brigadier General Frank Miller, then the Commander of III Corp Artillery awarded Jeremy a Certificate of Appreciation.  The Army eventually brought Jeremy to Ft. Carson, Colorado and it was from there that he moved to Boulder.

                    While Berggren Blooms is now in it's tenth year and still "Blooming."  The Berggren's bring many years of experience and knowledge to their young company.  This is why they are Boulder's and Longmont's experts in their field.
