This year marks the British Association of Landscape Industries’ 50th anniversary. We were delighted to be feature in the anniversary booklet, text extracted below:
As it approaches its 60th anniversary, the company established by its namesake, Jack Moody, can be proud of the part it and its founder have played in the Association’s history.
Jack recognised the importance of like-minded business owners coming together to share best practice and promote their professional services, establishing landscaping as an industry in its own right.
He had already been in business for about eight years when discussions about a new industry trade body were taking place and, as a young man keen to grow his business, Jack was one of the first businesses to join the new British Association of Landscape Industries.
He regularly attended meetings and visited other BALI members, sharing knowledge and ideas. His passion for raising standards in training and encouraging best practice have been key to his vision for the future of his company and something he looked to BALI to encourage and support.
Still involved with the business today, Jack has nevertheless stepped back from its day to day running. Jack Moody Group, which includes Jack Moody Landscapes, provides both trade and individual customers with a variety of award-winning horticultural, civil engineering, maintenance, and recycling solutions, enhanced by highly skilled craftsmanship, quality service and experience developed over nearly 60 years.
Company director Kate Moody said:
“The Association has been instrumental in the growth and promotion of the industry and in highlighting best practice through the National Landscape Awards.
We have won numerous awards over the years celebrating key projects. Through regular meetings, forums, newsletters, awards and use of the logo, BALI has given us the accreditation we need as contractors and the assurance our customers look for in a landscaping supplier.
We look forward to our continued involvement with the Association and congratulate it on its 50th anniversary!”
