It all began in 1989 as a humble horticultural hobby in the backyard of owner’s
Joan and Joel Barczak that evolved into a small garden design business they named Blumen Gardens.
Over the past 29 years, Joan & Joel have refurbished and re-purposed the property’s
historic factory and surrounding structures as a full-service landscaping company,
a year-round Gift & Garden Center and an Event Rental Facility.
Blumen Gardens inhabits over 2 acres of beautiful and historic land that is
enjoyed as a relaxing shopping destination by our customers both near and far.
The History of The Building
In previous years, the historic factory at 403 Edward Street has been the home to a
multitude of manufacturing companies since 1869.
Most notable tenants are:
Marsh Harvester, the factory’s first tenant, 1869 – 1881
Reuben Ellwood (Sycamore’s 1st Mayor) Manufacturing, 1875 – 1892
And a long succession of wire manufacturing companies including Anaconda.
Since 1989, Blumen Gardens has evolved from a small garden design business into a full-service Landscaping Company, a year-round Gift and Garden Center, and an Event Rental facility nestled in a historic setting in Sycamore, Illinois.
