A Memphis-based landscape company will move its headquarters to Mississippi.
Michael Hatcher & Associates broke ground Thursday, Feb. 25, at the site of its future headquarters: 8365 Center Hill Road in Olive Branch.
A 10,000-square-foot building will be erected on the 22-acre property. The development and the surrounding land will be referred to as “The Landscape Center.”
The company has operated out of its current 5466 Hacks Cross Road Memphis location for more than 30 years but has reportedly outgrown the facility. Its new Olive Branch location is expected to be finished in the fall of this year.
Parts of the new property will be dedicated to environmentally friendly trends and composting, as well as examples of urban gardening. Schools and senior care facilities will be encouraged to visit The Landscape Center for field trips.
“We have a lot of interest from some of our commercial clients, like senior care developments, who want their residents to garden and learn to enjoy gardening,” said Michael Hatcher, president of Michael Hatcher & Associates, in a release. “It’s a great thing for seniors to do and stay active.”
Michael Hatcher & Associates opened in 1986.
