Jackson Giles, a native Austinite, started New Native Gardens with his brother-in-law, Matt McKenna, during the height of the pandemic in 2020. Jackson and Matt had a vision for satisfying a gap in Austin’s market that has long been unfilled since the days when Gardens was a local favorite boutique nursery and purveyor of high-end containers. Since launching the business, and despite that year being 2020, they have successfully introduced their boutique plant design service to a growing collection of residential and commercial clients across the city.
The two entrepreneurs began importing some of the finest pottery containers found anywhere in the world – large-scale planters made by hand in Europe that are sculptural works of art for either interior or exterior plants. The planters are the “icing on the cake” when it comes to completing the design of homes with the beauty of those found in Austin.
