In 1978, Sally Munroe and James Gill joined as partners to design and install residential and commercial landscapes in the Corpus Christi area. They soon consolidated their partnership by marriage and moved their growing landscape business out of their backyard. The Airline Road Nursery was opened to serve retail customers in 1979, and a second nursery was opened in a converted gas station on South Alameda in 1987.
“Successfully running a small business isn’t easy, but we enjoy the challenge and celebrate our successes. One of the greatest rewards has been in the unique relationships that develop between small business owners, employees, and customers. In serving, we are served. By valuing our associates and our customers, we are able to value ourselves. And on top of that, plants and gardening are so darn much fun! How lucky is that!”
– Sally & James Gill
