How we got started.
Moon Valley Nurseries started with one small location in a neighborhood north of downtown Phoenix known as “Moon Valley.” Keeping things simple, owner Les Blake began this nursery with the name “Moon Valley Nursery”.
One of the things that Les found in the early days was that folks were always asking about having trees planted. Back then, it was rare to find a nursery that offered package pricing where the price of the tree or trees included planting and warranty. In many cases, you had to contract with someone else to get the tree and do the planting.
Word spread rapidly.
Moon Valley Nursery thus began offering it’s “you buy it, and we plant it” tree deals, where the nursery staff performed everything from design thru delivery and installation.
This service was an immediate hit with clients and remains so to this day. Word spread rapidly and because of these services it became apparent that a better supply was going to be needed for the future.
