Employer Quick Look

Over 50 years ago, we began with the name ValleyCrest Landscape Nurseries; we were a small neighborhood landscape retail nursery in North Hollywood, California, in the booming San Fernando Valley. Landscape work was primarily done in yards. We became experts in building complete gardens involving ponds, waterfalls, fence overhangs, and concrete, and developed expertise in tree moving as well as selling nursery products retail.

As we grew, schools and highways were being built, and the landscape work we did was in great demand. The tree growing demand developed along with us, and we thought up the idea of trees being grown in boxes which allowed us to plant 12 months out of the year. We separated the company and started Valley Crest Tree Co., mainly to grow trees for our jobs. Today, more than 90% of VCT's production is purchased by outside companies.

The 1950's were the years of building a strong operational foundation, developing the tools in our company that are used throughout the industry in the United States today, including implements for tractors, hand tools and maintenance equipment. In the 50's we were the innovators in the landscape business. We honed our skills in tree moving. Today we use the same methods we used then for moving trees, only with much larger equipment.

In the 1960's, we started expanding out of Los Angeles county to other cities and states, developing the branch system. We started our college scholarship programs and operated under the name ValleyCrest Company.

In the early 70's, we decided to take our company public to help finance our unprecedented growth and developed a holding company named Environmental Industries, Inc. The word environmental was to be a word of the future. We created an independent landscape maintenance division and named it Environmental Care. We continued our growth in the 1980's. Our red trucks preceded us, and our reputation continued to grow. We bought back our public stock and became a private company again.

By the 1990's we were doing landmark projects around the United States. We started our golf division, calling it Environmental Golf. EG owned, built, managed and maintained golf courses. VC and EG built and maintained almost 600 courses. Today, except for Glen Annie Golf Course in Santa Barbara, we no longer own or manage golf courses. And all of our golf course construction is done by ValleyCrest Landscape Development while our golf division successfully maintains some of the finest golf courses throughout the U.S.

In 2002, we decided to rebrand our entire company under the ValleyCrest name. Our parent company is now named ValleyCrest Companies, formerly Environmental Industries. Environmental Care has been renamed ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance and Environmental Golf has been renamed ValleyCrest Golf Course Maintenance. Our landscape construction division is now ValleyCrest Landscape Development,and Valley Crest Tree Co will keep its same name.
ValleyCrest employees enjoy paid time off, benefits and a 401(k) plan.
Career Opportunities

CALABASAS, CA - In an ambitious effort to be the only national landscape company to provide its commercial clients with a full portfolio of services encompassing design, build and maintenance, ValleyCrest Companies formally announced today the launch of its new landscape architecture practice, ValleyCrest Design Group. ValleyCrest Design Group will enhance the company’s service offering which, since its inception in 1949, has consisted of landscape development and maintenance. Today, however, clients are increasingly demanding a seamless sequence of professional landscape services, or more specifically, integrated landscape design-build offered by a single source. ValleyCrest Design Group has been established to respond to this growing and underserved need.

“The establishment of ValleyCrest Design Group is significant because it substantiates our belief that the future of the landscape industry lies in integrated design-build,” said Richard Sperber, president, ValleyCrest Companies. ”We have found this opinion is shared by many others, including the prominent landscape architects who have all joined our company to form ValleyCrest Design Group in the last six months as well as the customers who have already engaged us to perform integrated design-build services.”

Sperber continued, “Customers who take advantage of ValleyCrest Companies’ integrated design-build services can expect shorter project timelines, heightened accountability, fewer administrative burdens, greater efficiencies, and more accurate estimating.” “If you look at any other business on the planet, the bottom line is all about efficiency. Following that logic, we are offering our clients a holistic and streamlined approach, should they choose this option.”

While integrated design-build services are now available to ValleyCrest customers, landscape architecture, landscape installation, as well as landscape maintenance services will continue to be sold separately, as well.
