AJJ Associates / Landscape Resources Inc. was formed in the early 2000’s by Alan and Bob. Within a few short years, the enterprise earned great reckoning within the landscaping industry, thanks to Alan’s extensive sales experience and Bob’s horticultural expertise. With a combined experience of over 60 years, AJJ Associates offers its clients true value-for-money services.

Alan J. Jones

25 Years Experience / Horticultural Industry / University of Utah – Business

With over 40 years of experience, Alan has represented everything – from seeds to specimen trees! He started his career doing route sales, working for S & M Nursery / Chula Vista, CA – servicing Handyman, Nursery-land, Fed-Mart and Fed-Co stores located in the Southern California area. He also worked for the Ferry Morse Seed Co., Burpee Seeds / OM Scott and Sons, as well as Fisons Western Corp. In 1984 he was employed by H.D. Bergen Nurseries, a major wholesale tree nursery working with developers, owners, landscape architects and landscape contractors supplying high quality landscape material. This was his introduction into the landscape industry. Finally, in January 2000, he established his own company, bringing with him his extensive sales experience and zeal for providing top quality horticultural elements of any variety. Here’s what Bob Stone, one of his clients, had to say about Alan, “If it’s green and doesn’t walk away, he’ll help you in getting happily involved!”.

Robert M. Everett

35 Years Experience / Horticultural Industry / Graduate Cal Poly – San Luis Obispo, CA / Ornamental Horticulture

Few people can match Bob’s knowledge, passion and experience in horticulture. Bob’s father Don Everett also shared his son’s love for plants and became one of the first independent sales reps in Southern California; together they sold a variety of different flora wholesale for 15 years. Bob has strong entrepreneurial talent which he realized when he co-founded Vista Hill Nursery in Vista CA, where he was managing sales and production for 30 acres worth of specialty trees and palms.
After operating the nursery successfully for 12 years, he sold it to Miramar Wholesale Nurseries, one of the biggest and most respected names in San Diego. He then was assigned to manage a 100 acre retail and wholesale facility which was acquired by Miramar Wholesale. In January of 2000, he paired up with Alan Jones to start AJJ Associates, bringing their combined talents in horticulture and sales to offer the best horticultural specimens to the community.
Bob has a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture from the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and is also a member of American Society of Landscape Architects.
