Our history


photo of the three draw me a garden's founders

Draw Me A Garden is above all a beautiful story of encounters between garden enthusiasts. Convinced of the need to reconnect to Nature and the benefits of a small piece of greenery, they launched this start-up to help create and easily arrange your garden.

2016

In 2016, in a coffee shop in Blois, two friends shared their desire to create "dessine-moi-un-jardin.com", a bit like the "Ikea" of the garden.

Florent, then in an MBA at INSEAD, decided to take this project as a subject for his thesis.

2018

The first prototype is launched, the first users try the 3D tool.

Draw Me A Garden integrates the FrenchTech incubator at Lab’O in Orléans and two web developers and a marketing manager join the team.

2020

Partnerships started in 2019 with large companies, such as Leroy Merlin or Stihl, should strengthen our position. Unfortunately, nothing goes as planned with the arrival of the 1st containment. Draw Me A Garden then reorganised itself to be 100% remote with customers and launched the 'landscaper project'.

The offer continues to evolve, and customers give us enthusiastic feedback on the beauty of the gardens.

2017

The start-up Draw Me A Garden is created. Guillaume, landscape architect trained at the Versailles school, joins the adventure.

Several projects have been launched:

> The construction of garden inspirations and plant ranges.
> Garden modelling and the creation of the first 2D and 3D algorithms.
> The first version of the website.

2019

The year 2019 is a sign of acceleration, thanks to the BPI subsidies, the first fundraising and the arrival of Anne-Laure, partner and shareholder, who takes charge of the Marketing and Communication part.

The first users create their gardens on the dmag.fr website and the first customers plant their gardens between Tours, Blois and Orléans.

2021

Since 2021, the logistic organisation has changed. After 2 years of delivery by the co-founders, customers are now delivered by professionals! There are now gardens delivered throughout France 😊

The nourishing garden is launched to enable everyone to have a beautiful and good garden, and a change in the sales team allows to improve the focus on what our customers expect.

To continue the development and research part, a new fundraising is underway.

We are evolving and growing....
The adventure continues!

We are a young start-up in constant evolution and we are improving our offer every day to better serve our customers.
