In 1977, Jimmy Carter became president, “Tonight’s the Night” by Rod Stewart was the number one song on the billboard charts, the first Star Wars movie was released in theaters, punk rock was born and Elvis died. It’s also the year that RGA Landscape Architects got its start. Milestone birthdays are exciting. You turn 16 and get your license. On your 18th birthday, you legally become an adult. At 21, you can finally enjoy alcoholic beverages. As you enter your 30s, you finally feel like the adult you legally became 12 years prior. And then there’s 40. You’re older, wiser, happier. Now that we’re stretching our legs into nearly-middle-aged adulthood here at RGA, we’d love to take you on a retrospective of our four decades serving the Coachella Valley (and beyond). A picture tells a thousand words, and we’re wise enough to know you’d rather look at pictures than read a thousand words. So here, in no particular order, are some of our favorite RGA pictures. Enjoy!
