HGTV Gardens

HGTVGardens.com was conceived, created and built with Scripps Networks Interactive.

A hub for any level of horticulturist, HGTV Gardens is a site for inspiration, sharing and learning. The site offers registration through social authentication, ratings and social sharing, as well the capability to contribute content through user-generated galleries and forums and is developed entirely on Brightspot.® 

The site promotes social engagement and user content sharing, which can be managed by editors through a unique moderation tool within Brightspot. A custom taxonomy structure and gallery creation tool was also developed within Brightspot. The interface facilitates the ease of sourcing information for content, thanks to resources ingested and presented through the Brightspot platform. 


Thousands of pieces of content are catalogued on the site, including 12 gardening volumes from DK Books, 5,000 plant records from the NGA Plant Database and more than 13,000 plant images.

In addition to providing front- and back-end development for desktop and Mobile, our team trained more than 30 Scripps contributors to use Brightspot.
