VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

We have seen incredible beauty in LA this month!

While we enjoy looking back at every job well done, there is something special about stepping back to enjoy something created with you.  We had that wonderful experience twice this month.

Working alongside you in the crisp autumn air at the Gardens of the World leaves us with a profound sense of connection and accomplishment.  This year, we had an additional boost when what felt like the whole community of Sierra Madre joined us in planting the gardens surrounding city hall.

Thank you for showing us your beauty and helping us showcase the true beauty of LA this fall. What a thrill!

Sincerely,

Cassy and Kirk Aoyagi
