Meet Our Team


Almora Hudson


Almora Hudson, the proud owner and president of Heritage Landscapes, brings three decades of experience and dedication to enhancing the landscapes of Marin County. Having joined the family business, initially started by her mother, Janet Gross, Almora has been a vital part of its evolution and success. A Northern California native, her love of the area’s Mediterranean climate and proximity to the ocean and the bay fuel her passion for outdoor living and professional landscape design.

Described by clients as responsive, service-oriented, and adept at solving problems, Almora excels in finding the perfect synergy between the needs of her clients and employees and the landscapes they create and nurture. What sets Heritage Landscapes apart under her leadership is the ability to offer best-in-class services and foster impactful, lifelong relationships with clients, emphasizing mutual communication over typical business transactions. Her favorite aspect of her role is developing her successors, ensuring the business’s growth and continuity for future generations. 

Outside of her professional life, Almora is deeply rooted in her community and personal interests. She is a mother of two teenagers, a devoted cat mother, and lives close to her parents, fostering a tight-knit family environment. Her hobbies include spending time in nature, gardening at home, reading, and staying active with workouts at F45. Almora is a conscientious, fair, and exacting leader, committed to continuous learning and enjoyment in her career. She is proud of maintaining and expanding the legacy her mother began while preparing to pass it on to the next generation.
