Ten-Second Takeaway

Bangalore-based Xanadu Organic Gardens designs gardens and patios for those who like to be surrounded by greenery. Plus, they are big on up cycling too.

For The Love Of Greenery

Have a spare part of your home you’re doing nothing with? Grow a garden. In fact, Xanadu, run by Yohan DeNazareth and Mervyn De Nazareth, will do it for you. The two brothers come from a nature-loving family and have spent a lot of their time in the wilderness of their Banerghatta farmhouse while growing up. They love wildlife treks, animals and Yohan took up organic gardening as a hobby after quitting his job in Human Resources. After setting up gardens for friends and family, the brothers realised that they could do this full-time. Mervyn studied at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology and brings in his design expertise to the table. The name Xanadu is inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous poem Kubla Khan and also by the gardens of the mythical summer palace of the emperor of China, Kublai Khan.
