Moon Valley Nurseries, an Arizona-based business, will move into 3525 William D. Tate Ave., Grapevine, this summer. A conditional-use permit was approved by both Grapevine's Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council during the May 16 meeting.
Moon Valley Nurseries sells more than 4,000 different types of trees, shrubs, plants, flowers and succulent that are raised on company-owned farms, according to city documents.
Moon Valley operates locations in Arizona, California, Nevada, Tennessee and Texas. There are 15 locations within Texas and two in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro: Forney and Carrollton.
What you need to know
The conditional-use permit was for the business to allow the outside display and sale of large boxed trees, shrubs and other nursery items. Of the 117 parking spots, 56 will be converted outdoor displays of boxed trees.
The outdoor display area will increase from 41,500 square feet to 70,608 square feet. An overhead shading system will be removed, and a 6-foot-tall wrought iron fence will be constructed.
What they’re saying
“Moon Valley is a family-oriented nursery,” Moon Valley Nurseries representative Robert Branston Jr. said during the public hearing. “We tend to focus on large, big-boxed trees, and we are actually one of the largest growers in the United States. What makes us unique is that we offer an ancillary fold; we like to keep it where it is a one-stop shop. You buy it from us; we plant it; we do tree care; and we do landscape design. That is something we have not done in the past or [is available] anywhere in Grapevine.”
