Sam came to Snow Creek with one thing on his mind – to work up the ladder. To put his experience and education of landscape design to use. Those of us who work with him, know that it worked!
We were able to sit down with Sam to ask him a few important questions on life and his general experience at Snow Creek Landscaping. His time, both in the field and in the office, has allowed him to see the greater picture of what is needed to help run a successful landscaping business. As a company, we are always glad to see our folks move up through the ranks and utilize their talents.
To get to know Sam just a little bit more, we sat down and asked him a few standard interview questions. To really let the community know who they are working with.

Sam: “Born and raised in Candler, NC.”
SC: “Ahh, an Asheville native – rare these days! So what do you like about being in the landscaping industry?”
Sam: “Being able to see a project evolve into a clean and well maintained landscape. That something comes from an idea and is made into a place that people can enjoy and be one with nature.”
