Wilde Horticulture

Great landscape design is where beauty & sustainability meet the unexpected.

We see the potential in any space and treat every project as special and unique. That means taking the time to understand your aesthetic and how you want to use the space – then passionately bringing it to fruition.

Our Team

Wilde Horticulture offers a talented, experienced and knowledgeable team that understands the importance of creating unique, inviting and memorable spaces. Our team appreciates both the big-picture aspects of a well-designed space, combined with the importance of the details of tidy landscaping. We deliver creative solutions for any place or space – inside or outside, large or small, permanent or temporary – and always strive to impress.

Brian Wildeman discovered his love for the outdoors at an early age while helping his grandparents tend to their garden. The Evansville native pursued his passion for creating within nature at Purdue University, earning a degree in landscape horticulture with design.

While attending college, he worked part-time in the research greenhouses, learning about plant germination, life cycles, varieties, nutrient and watering needs, and the importance of research. As a senior, he studied at the University of Hannover in Germany, which exposed him to horticulture practices from around the world.

He was a landscape designer in Chicago for three years, creating designs for expansive estates, as well as urban spaces and public properties.

In 2006, Brian and his wife returned to their hometown, where he continued his career. Since that time, Brian’s fresh style, innovative approach and impeccable eye for design have earned him recognition throughout the region. A recipient of Evansville Business Journal’s 20 Under 40, Brian is actively involved in the community. He’s a mayoral appointee to the Evansville Historical Preservation Commission, involved in Keep Evansville Beautiful and has regularly written the Digging In, a column for Evansville Living.

In 2016, he started Wilde Horticulture.
