Birmingham’s Premier Landscape Contractor


Located along (and named for) Blackjack Ridge in the Birmingham area, Blackjack Gardens, Inc. was formed in 1998 by a local Birmingham family. The name was taken from the Blackjack Oak trees populating this mountain ridge in northeast Jefferson County.  Originally, the company incorporated many divisions including a high-end casual furniture business, an equestrian center, a horticulture group, and an organically grown produce operation.

In 2004, the horticulture group was spun off to create an independent company known as Blackjack Horticulture, Inc. and is now owned by Bryan Word who has worked with the company since its early years. Blackjack Horticulture is a full service landscape company offering a variety of landscape installation & construction, landscape maintenance, and floriculture services, both residential and commercial.  Since its inception in the late ’90s Blackjack Gardens, and now Blackjack Horticulture, has held fast to a commitment of serving its customers in a way that builds lasting relationships and yields quality work. Most of its original customers are still being served by the company even today.

Blackjack Horticulture works all over the states of Alabama, Mississippi, and other surrounding areas.
