About Us

Who We Are


We are garden gnomes. Really!! We grow things, from dirt.


We don’t just sell plants, we make your gardens thrive and solve all your gardening issues, magically. We are a young company of 200 passionate individuals driven to leave this world better and greener than we found it.

Our History


Ugaoo took shape from the ideas of Siddhant Bhalinge, our CEO, after he returned from Cal State University with a post-grad degree in Landscape Architecture. Armed with a brim-full of international experience and ideas, he started Ugaoo under the guidance of his 130-year old family company Namdeo Umaji Agritech.

What We Do

We create green spaces, both indoors and outdoors. We are here to make the concrete jungle, we call home, a greener and more sustainable space through customized gardening solutions. Through our Own Grown Farms initiative we convert open urban spaces into food gardens to lower food miles and promote community gardening values. In the last five years we have worked towards neutralizing over 400 tonnes of carbon.

How We Do It

We are driven by our passion to promote sustainability as a feasible way of life. Siddhant, given his background, is very aware of the possibilities in the field of indoor gardening and urban farming and the everlasting positive impact it brings to our lives. We are devoted to cultivating a community of gardeners who are as passionate about gardening as we are and hand holding those who are not yet fully convinced, to dive deep into the green world with us.
