The company Zrinjevac is in business since 1977 as a legal successor of the companies Gradska vrtlarija, Nasadi, Flora, Unikum and Jankomir. With the establishment of the Croatian Republic and the new organization of the city government in 1990, Zrinjevac becomes a public company for the planning of public green areas in the City. After transfer of the business share in 2006 Zrinjevac joined the Gradsko komunalno gospodarstvo, and after 2007 acts as a subsidiary Zrinjevac within the Zagreb Holding. In 2013 marked 120 years from the establishing of Gradska vrtlarija and published a monograph for this occasion.
Zrinjevac designs, arranges and maintains public and other green areas, children's playgrounds and sports and recreational facilities. It also deals with the sale of seedlings of fruit trees and shrubs, potted plants and cut flowers, bulbs and seeds of grass, garden soil, compost, garden accessories, machinery and tools and equipment for parks, plazas, children's playgrounds, sports and recreational facilities. It also offers the services of permanent or temporary decorating the interior space with indoor plants, as well as decorating the balconies and terraces, and maintenance services for room plants and small family gardens, which includes continuous professional care.
The application of the latest professional achievements in the production of top quality turf grass is also worth pointing out.
One of the more important projects for Zrinjevac is the organization of INTERNATIONAL GARDEN EXHIBITION FLORAART, whose organizer is for 23 years. Zrinjevac takes care of the management of green matter (compost) for the City of Zagreb, and in its composting plant it produces more than 60,000 tons of compost. We also should not forget the Cadaster of green areas, which regularly updates all changes to green areas.
Zrinjevac possesses quality and environment management systems according to the international standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004.
Let us also mention some historical interesting facts. In the area of today's City of Zagreb the first settlements were 3,000 years ago. Not much is known about them, not to mention their gardening. Speaking of Zagreb, the beginnings of its gardening are in the medieval hortulus (small garden). Those were the gardens for cultivating almost everything: fruit, vine, vegetables, medicinal, spice and ornamental plants. Those gardens survived until 19th century, collecting all the horticultural tradition and spreading it to ne new urban areas. Stunning blooming of this flower culture, cultivated gardens and parks, is recorded in the 18th and 19th century. That was the time of the creation of the Northern and Southern promenade, Strossmayer and Vraz promenade, park plazas of the Green Horseshoe (a masterpiece of European historicism), Botanical garden, Ribnjak, Zagreb's alleys, and the beautiful Zagreb's park forests (Tuškanac). The scope of the raise of Zagreb's horticultural spirit is well evidenced by the fact that, after construction of Mirogoj, many small city cemeteries have been turned into parks.
