Peggy (Margaret) and Danny VanDevender opened Landscape Design of Goldsboro, Inc. on February 2, 1980. Realizing a need for quality plant material, they began the Nursery Division (in their back yard!) just a few years later. Soon followed the Irrigation Division in 1984. The business has grown to include production of over 350 acres of nursery crops. Peggy and Danny continue to play active roles in the day-to-day business.
