The Altum’s Story

From the first tree in 1958, to the beautiful landscapes that followed, Bob Altum built his family’s reputation on garden designs and relationships that grow better with time.

For 50 years, he and his team started every job with fresh plants from handpicked local growers. Bob appreciated the local mentality and invested his time and resources in giving the best to his clients. This is how he earned the trust and business of generations, who learned one after the other that Bobʼs creativity and personal touch were what made the Altumʼs name.

Two new generations of Altums, Dana and her son Kirk, are reinventing the traditional garden center at Altum’s at Finley Creek, a unique open-air market just six miles north on Michigan Road in Zionsville. It’s a new beginning for Altum’s, and we’ve embraced the laid-back countryside vibe, while employing a progressive approach to online ordering (and pre-ordering), customer service and conveniences. The future looks pretty and personal.

    We come to work each day surrounded by the people and plants that make us happy. We learn and grow and help others do the same and we’re often looking for people to share the ride. Should we meet?


    Seeking an energetic, self-starter who loves the green industry, planting with care and pitching in for the good of our small group.

    You’ll spend your days outside leading your crew in making homeowners happy, which comes easy when you love what you do and work for a family-owned garden center with 60 years of local success. We’ll rely on your gracious customer service and attention to detail, positive attitude, maintenance of company grounds, vehicles and equipment and muscles when it comes to unloading/loading product and helping us be our best together.
