Our Company

Our Company - Made with Great Personnel

Berger Hargis Landscape Management was formed in 1994. Bryan Berger and Chris Hargis culminated a lifelong dream of owning their own businesses. Both Bryan and Chris have lived in the Indianapolis area and worked in the Green Care industry throughout their entire adult lives. Collectively, they hold license and/or certifications in ornamental tree and shrub care, lawn care, aquatic maintenance, and Bryan is a certified arborist.

Company Philosophy

Berger Hargis has a company philosophy of providing personal excellence for all our services. The growth and success has been due entirely to our commitment to honest, excellent service to our customers. The company has been built on the referral business we have received due to this philosophy.


Part of Berger Hargis’ success in providing the service which our customers want, but rarely receive today, is due to our General Manager Kevin Huddleson. Kevin has been with Berger Hargis since the company was formed and shares Chris and Bryan’s philosophy of providing quality, honest, reliable, outstanding service.

Berger Hargis is large enough to provide all of the grounds maintenance services commercially or residentially needed, but small enough to be responsive to our customers' needs.


Service is lost in many of today’s businesses. Berger Hargis Landscape Management is the exception. Give us the opportunity, it will be one of the best decisions you can make.

Service Areas

Now serving central Indiana including the counties of Marion, Hendricks, Boone, Hamilton, Madison, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson and Morgan.

To ensure that you hire the most qualified landscape professional possible you should consider doing a little research.  If the landscape company you are talking to does not volunteer their credentials, do not hesitate to ask for them.  For your peace of mind, you will be glad you did.
