Van Herrick’s Environmental Planting, California’s largest landscape management firm, whose projects include Arco Plaza, Great Western Savings, Unocal headquarters, Broadway Plaza and Pacific Design Center, has been purchased by David Dworsky and Geoffrey S. Berg, both of Los Angeles. They declined to disclose details of the agreement.
The firm was established by Robert Herrick Carter in 1948. He will remain in an executive sales and design capacity with the new corporation. The purchasing organization is known as VH Acquisition Corp.
Van Herrick’s, also one of the larger interior landscape management firms, has office and service facilities in Los Angeles, Calabasas and Gardena, including a new half-acre general distribution facility employing more than 100 people and posting revenues of more than $4 million, according to Dworsky, chairman and chief executive officer of Van Herrick’s. Part of Dworsky’s and Berg’s streamlining of the corporation is sale of the nursery units to concentrate on design, installation and servicing.
