Moon Valley Nursery plants HQ in Scottsdale Airpark


Moon Valley Nursery last week cut the ribbon on its new 25,000-square-foot corporate office in Scottsdale Airpark.

Its new office, located off loop 101 and Pima Road in the Pima Northgate office building, will comfortably house members of its corporate operations teams in departments like marketing and customer service call auditing – and likely will make a strong impression on visiting investors.

“One of the important things to us about the space that we were in previously, most of our employees had offices and we wanted to continue to have offices where possible for employees,” said Moon Valley CFO Deborah Keeley. “One of the big selling points was we could design it ourselves and we could build our offices.”

Moon Valley Nursery had previously housed its corporate headquarters less than 15 miles east of the new office at a space off of 7th street and loop 101.

But after seeing large growth over the past four years, CEO Brian Flood felt the company had outgrown its former home base.

“Over the last three or four years, we went from a 1,000-person company to nearly a 2,000-person company… so really it became a need to expand,” Flood said.

“We needed to continue growing the size of the personnel and have enough space where we could have an open space and not just use cubicles everywhere.”

Not only has the company doubled the number of its employees over the past half-decade, but Moon Valley Nursery has also expanded into more southwestern markets including California, Nevada and Texas.

“We went into new states and new areas and hired new agents, we expanded into Austin and Dallas and now we’re expanding into multiple locations throughout Dallas and all through California – where we have just about 2,000 acres of a growing facility and have had a presence since 2014,”  Flood said.

When asked what he would attribute his company’s rapid growth too, Flood cited his biggest seller: trees.

“People once underestimated the importance of a tree and the importance of how nice it is to be in their yard,” said Flood.

However, Flood says that when stay-at-home orders were enacted, people began understanding the value trees bring to yards around the valley and our ecosystem.

“During that time, when everyone was at home, looking at their yard and had the time to take care of the yard, they realized how important it is to be outside,” he said.
