Robert – thank you for the many years of friendship, loyalty and unwavering dedication to customer service. We are forever grateful for all you’ve done for us!
We had a great crew appreciation breakfast this morning and managed to snag a quick group pic with a few team members before they left for another day of making garden dreams come true!
We had a great time with friends at the recent Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory of Houston gala! Chaired by Lisa and Michael Heim, the evening raised more than $2.2 million for student scholarships. The evening was titled “Viva The Miracle!” and it sure felt like one! ⭐
Our team had a blast at the Urban Wild Bridge Bash presented by Moss Landscaping last night! Thank you to the team at the Memorial Park Conservancy and co-chairs, Jeffrey Yates and Alexis Caruselle, for leading a wonderful event! OUR park is in great hands!
Another wonderful outdoor classroom donated for a great cause: The Little Acorn Park at The Parish School!
The Parish School specializes provides education to children who have communication delays and learning differences, but have above average learning potential. These differences may include problems with speech/language, learning to read, dyslexia, focusing attention, visual motor areas, social skills and auditory processing. The Little Acorn Park is a beautiful space where these students can learn and play for years to come and Moss Landscaping is so proud to be able to give in such a big way to this very worthy cause! 🌿💚🌳
Our team had a blast at the CYCLE Houston Bicycle Ball! Gary and Louise hosted along with fellow CYCLE Board Members, Leo Hamel and Maria Quinones. There was dinner, dancing and lots of cheering while raising funds for a very worthy cause!
CYCLE is a children’s charity that rewards students with new bicycles for achieving better academic performance. Since CYCLE Houston began, they’ve awarded more than 150,000 bicycles to hard-working students in the Greater Houston area and are so excited that the success of this year’s event will fund many more! 🚲
Great team photo of Adrian’s crew after finishing our maintenance route in the Heights! Looking good, guys!
Our team had a great time with friends at yesterday’s Taking Root Luncheon benefiting Peckerwood Garden!
It was a great program with keynote speaker, Peter Hatch. Hatch is a celebrated author who has written four books on the garden of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, where he served as Director of Gardens & Grounds for 35 years!
We recommend his book, “A Rich Spot of Earth”, to anyone interested in the history of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello or the 1,000-foot terraced vegetable garden he loved and learned so much from. It was extensively and painstakingly restored under Hatch’s brilliant direction, and Jefferson’s unique vegetable garden now boasts the same medley of plants he enthusiastically cultivated in the early nineteenth century!
“No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden…But though an old man, I am but a young gardener.” – Thomas Jefferson
