Our Story

The concept for C3 Gardens was born five years ago on a visit to Southwest Florida. Tom Smith and Jack Barnwell, now partners in the business, were visiting the area with their wives when Tom suggested “You know Jack, with your design talent and my custom growing ability, we could really bring something special down here that is simply not being offered!”

The spark ignited a wildfire of ambition, but patience and knowledge were going to be key to developing the C3 business model. Jack and Tom knew that in order to offer something new, they had to be certain their designs, with innovative new plant material and never before seen products could perform perfectly in Southwest Florida. Five years of plant, soil, and fertilizer trials gave them the confidence needed to officially launch C3 Gardens in 2015.
