Who We Are

Flower Street Urban Gardens is an Arizona based company dedicated to making gardening easier and more enjoyable for gardeners or aspiring gardeners. At Flower Street Urban Gardens we believe that gardening can be a practical and fulfilling experience for anyone and everyone, green thumb or not! As a company we strive to simplify and demystify the process of growing organically.

Our patented vertical-garden system was designed around the challenges faced in growing outdoors in the middle of the unyielding Phoenix summer heat. Our system provides easy-access by occupying pre-existing space (often times) and putting the garden at your hands level. This not only makes gardening more enjoyable because of the ergonomic effect but it is also highly practical and space saving in that it utilizes walls and fences in a manner that is safe and efficient.

Our Story

Flower Street Urban Gardens is proud to work with schools, assisted living facilities, veterans association, city planning and beautification projects nationwide. We are passionate about the education of the next generation of citizens who will help build a more colorful, sustainable, and nutritious world through collaborative projects and community outreach.

We believe that a thriving culture produces a thriving economy and that when people are properly educated they make better decisions and are overall better citizens. Well-educated children grow up to be more impactful leaders, builders, creators, and masters of their chosen profession. Masters are what the world needs, now more than ever, but masters begin as precocious children who’s minds are curious and enthusiastic. School garden initiatives create a huge impact on early childhood development and can help shape positive life habits for children and young adults that they will carry for the rest of their lives.

Alex installed 2 tiers of boxes for me yesterday. I love them! He is super nice, meticulous, and very knowledgeable about everything to do with gardening and plants.
Highly recommended!

Great people!

Flawless install and a delight to learn so much about soil and plants. I can’t wait to get started. Working with them has been easy and a pleasure. This is perfect for our small townhouse ‘yard’ – I’ve been missing the flowers of home (Oregon) and can’t wait to see what I can grow. 5 stars isn’t enough!

I am completely obsessed with my gate and my flower boxes. It was all I needed to freshen up the house. I would recommend this company to anyone. Support your local small business! Thank you, guys!!!

I have driven by Flower Street Urban Gardens on my way to work every day for the past 2 years, always intrigued by the beauty of the gardens hanging on the wall. Finally I stopped in a month or so ago and was thrilled with what I found. The grounds are beautiful, the gardens are stunning and the Billingsley Family could not be any friendlier or more helpful. I am now the proud owner of a two-tier Urban Garden, the first of many I will own, I’m sure. If you are a gardener, whether a novice or a pro, you’ll definitely want to stop by and see Flower Street Urban Gardens.
