Who we are
Today, the fourth generation is leading MATI 1909, a group of companies representing excellence in the design and construction of small and large gardens, ornamental-plant nursery production, promotion of the green culture, and Tuscan farmhouse food. As the ideal partner for landscape designers and architects, plants from our Pistoia nurseries as well as the green spaces designed and constructed by our team of expert gardeners, can be found in parks and cities throughout Italy and Europe.
The Mati Brothers
Andrea, Francesco, and Paolo Mati are three brothers who grew up with a love for plants coupled with values linked to rural culture and the family. They decided that their nursery business would support the design, planning, and construction of green works; promote green culture and agritourism catering using products grown directly in their own gardens or the Tuscan countryside, paying particular attention to social issues and the environment.
Moreover, the Mati family’s history is strewn with innovative designs and experiments. Their earliest partnerships with universities and research centers date back to 1930. Many patents have been granted over the years in addition to studying innovative systems at the nursery for cultivation techniques, plant conservation methods and new cultivars. Two research projects currently underway are related to the sustainability of farming systems and remote-controlled gardens, intended to reduce the environmental impact.
