Mosher & Associates | Meet Us

Our Story

In early 2000, Matt Mosher had a vision to start his own landscape company. Armed with pictures of projects he completed in his parents backyard, Matt headed out on a spring Saturday to pitch his new company- Mosher & Associates. Half way down the street, Matt was ecstatic as he had landed his first two jobs, which included weeding flower beds and installing wood chips under a swing set. Unsure of where to get wood chips, Matt hit the yellow pages and found a supplier. Two days later, with the projects complete, Matt was officially in business.

By the second summer, Matt now had several of his high school friends working with him and the projects were getting bigger. Matt got his big break that summer when a well known author was looking at a flyer Matt had put in his mailbox and saw that Matt was a so called expert in water features. Upon meeting with the perspective client, it was clear to Matt that he was way over his head. True to his entrepreneurial spirit, Matt was not going to turn the project down. Instead, he would spend several hours at Home Depot studying ‘How To’ books on installing cement footings, building water features and all other necessary topics related to building the project. By that fall, Matt had installed a 50 foot long waterfall with three levels pumping 10,000 gallons a minute over huge rocks set by excavators. The project won several awards and was featured in various magazines. Today, the waterfall still runs like it did the day it was built.

Since then, Mosher & Associates has completed hundreds of unique projects. Through perseverance and hard work, we are now a highly sophisticated firm in the landscape and building industry with projects throughout the United States. Beyond designing and building projects, we also operate a full scale estate maintenance company with hundreds of clients in the metro Detroit area.
