Arbor Enterprises Provides Landscape Services to the JC Raulston Arboretum
The team at Arbor Enterprises loves to volunteer their services at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC. A nationally acclaimed botanical garden, the JC Raulston Arboretum is “one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants adapted for landscape use in the Southeast. Plants especially adapted to Piedmont North Carolina conditions are collected and evaluated in an effort to find superior plants for use in southern landscapes.”
The 10-acre arboretum is a part of the Horticultural Science Department at NC State University and was created by Dr. JC Raulston in 1976. Dr. Raulston envisioned a diversification of the American landscape, and he sought to develop the North Carolina nursery industry. To achieve this vision, he established the arboretum, which has become a horticultural leader that is recognized internationally.
Paige Moody, the owner of Arbor Enterprises, attended NC State University and received her Masters in Agriculture, where she studied under Dr. Raulston. “What a privilege to know and study under JC,” she recalls. “He was a walking encyclopedia, and his classes were fun!”
The Arbor Enterprises family is passionate about the mission at the JC Raulston Arboretum. Plants from around the world are collected, assessed, and exhibited at the garden. The staff — horticultural professionals and Southeast gardening experts — focuses on discovering new greenery for southern landscapes as well as educating and inspiring a new generation of gardeners.
“It’s a magical place full of wonder and beauty, and we are privileged to have such a fine facility in our area,” says Paige Moody.
Arbor Enterprises is proud to serve the JC Raulston Arboretum by providing landscape services once a year during the winter months. Under the supervision of arboretum Director Mark Weathington, Arbor Enterprises works to beautify different areas of the gardens through hardscape installations.
In addition to delivering superior landscape design to the JC Raulston Arboretum, Arbor Enterprises also creates exquisite landscapes for residential clients. Services include landscape installation, grounds management, landscape renovation, and irrigation.
The company has expertise in working with stone retaining walls, ponds, patios, and walkways. This diversification has enabled Arbor Enterprises to offer a complete package of landscape services. Arbor Enterprises also offers commercial landscape services to local Triangle area businesses.
Company owner Paige Moody elaborates on the goal at Arbor Enterprises, saying, “We believe your home is your sanctuary, and that includes the yard. Every day should bring you joy from your garden. With hectic schedules, what a delight to open the garden gate, perhaps clip some aromatic gardenia and iris from your flower beds, and let them grace your kitchen table. It is our pleasure and responsibility to be good stewards, and that starts with your garden, large or small.”
