About Earth and Turf

Our Mission

Earth and Turf has set out to become not only one of the top landscape companies in the area, but to be a large player in the garden center scene! We are Zionsville's favorite garden center! We are committed to giving our clients the best possible customer service we can offer as well as be a quality service provider in our industry. We source out only the best products for your lawn and further ourselves through continuing education so we can continue growing to provide you with the best possible lawn care service in the area!

Our Story

Earth and Turf was started part time in 2007 by Donnie Starwalt; who at the time was a Career Firefighter for Zionsville Fire Department, and was started solely to fill a need for finish grading and bush hog work. Mowing services were added as well as mulch installation services. We continued to grow in 07’ with one full time employee and a part time helper.
In 2009 one of Earth and Turf's customers asked what our next step was in growing. After many discussions, Earth and Turf Partners was then born.
In 2010 we started the season with a part time office manager, a full time mowing crew, a full time landscape/install crew, and a part time fertilization crew. At the same time we began delivering mulch and materials not only for our crews but for other residential and commercial customers.

The rest is history and we have been growing, changing, and expanding ever since! We are now Zionsville's favorite garden center for Spring-Christmas, and we are also a family owned business. You will see Donnie, Meggan, and their four children throughout the seasons helping out where needed with retail! We love Zionsville, we live here, our kids go to Zionsville Schools, and we saw a void for unique seasonal gifts and decor, AWESOME affordable plants, and local, fresh produce!
