Oscar Girón earned a bachelor of science degree in horticulture from Texas A&M University and a master's degree in commerce from the University of Virginia. At A&M, he took classes ranging from soil science to plant pathology to sustainable landscaping. In addition to his formal education at A&M, Oscar gained further horticultural experience throughout his studies by assisting horticulture graduate students with their research, learning about pest management during his study abroad in Ecuador, and completing a semester-long research project on succulents and cacti. He also visited East Asia during his graduate studies and gained a different perspective on landscaping while visiting gardens in Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and South Korea.
Halfway through his undergraduate studies, Oscar made a giant leap to California and worked for Moon Valley Nurseries in the summer of 2015, where he learned all about California landscapes and plant materials. Having fallen in love with everything California during his time at Moon Valley Nurseries, Oscar decided to move to the Golden State and work full-time for the company after graduating from college.
Since working full-time, Oscar has budded into our lead landscape designer at the Huntington Beach store. Armed with his horticultural knowledge and love for plants, Oscar strives to create landscapes that will keep his clients smiling every time they arrive home or at their business. His top three favorite trees are Gingkos, Vitex Trees, and Silk Floss Trees.
"My best advice? Invest in your yard. We are lucky enough to live in an area where year-round outdoor living is possible. Create a sanctuary in your landscape where you can unwind and enjoy the smells, looks, and fruits in your very own yard. That is why I love creating landscapes that include more than just aesthetics."
