On January 1, 1998, we started M.J. Design Associates, Inc. as a small landscape design build company. When we started on this journey 20 years ago, we had a vision of the type of business we wanted, but we could only hope that it would grow to the extent that it has! We are most proud of the fact that we have maintained our core values—Quality, Honesty and Integrity. We don’t sacrifice on the details.
Our first year, we were working out a of a storage shed with one pick-up truck and a trailer.
One year later in 1999, we moved to a multi-unit industrial building and rented one of the units, and within 2 years expanded to a second unit.
In 2003, we were out of space… so we purchased the land and built the shop where we are today, just outside of Dublin.
In 2008, we were still growing and added the office building.
Today our 2-acre property is covered with the “M.J. Gardens” for anyone to enjoy for inspiration. It has become a facility that allows us to show clients different types of plants, as well as, stone, concrete paver and stamp concrete options. Our gardens are ever changing, but it shows our clients and colleagues that we truly love plants and what we do. It also provides the perfect training grounds for our employees. We can teach them about every day maintenance practices, in addition to installation techniques.
Throughout the year, we will share more history, past photos and elaborate on the M.J. Design story in honor of our 20th Anniversary!
