Butler's Courtyard: February Business Landscape of the Month

Winter has been grim, and the sun has become a stranger.  Color is hard to find in our League City landscapes.  What a surprise at the corner of Michigan and 2nd Street, the home of Butler Courtyard! Bright pansies and snapdragons enhance the hundred year-old building.  Nancy Richards and Janice Gunnin are best friends who decided to start a special events business 12 years ago.  In the decade since, they have seen their business grow and their friendship thrive along with it.  The original property has expanded to include half the city block.

Gardens abound on the property along with fountains and angels. Under the shade of historic oaks and magnolias, seasonal plantings accent the landscape.   Many happy couples have exchanged their vows under the trees and chandeliers, while guests and attendants enjoy the historic charm. 

Scott Lee of Lee’s Landscaping designs and maintains the Butler Courtyard grounds.

The League City Garden Club is proud to recognize Butler’s Courtyard as the Business Landscape of  February, and the best friends who made it happen, Nancy Richards and Janice Gunnin.
