As quoted from the Asheville Citizen’s Time article on November 16th, 1997, Tim Boone, “found a niche in the market. And with the economy roaring along for the past several years, he’s done well”. That was just over 20 years ago, when Snow Creek Landscaping was coming up on it’s 9 year anniversary. Many locals can tell you that they have seen our trucks all around town, but many don’t know the rich history and dedication that the company has been involved in throughout the years. Since opening it’s doors in 1989, Snow Creek has worked hard in creating relationships in the community of Western North Carolina, as well as helped develop the face of this beautiful land for so many commercial and residential clients.
The story of Snow Creek is one that starts with the child of an agriculturally rich family, one that farms their food and takes pride in their environment. As a young boy, Tim Boone watched the world around him grow and develop. With each passing season, his curiosity transformed from a more agricultural lifestyle into more of a horticultural passion – one that brings that natural world to each individual. From selling his motorcycle to start his own pepper project at a very young age, to becoming an award winning horticulturist in his early years – the fascination of how things grow and develop had became less of a hobby and interest, and more of a career.
For 29 years, Snow Creek has been depicted around Western North Carolina with the
image of the creek that started it all. As Tim grew both personally and professionally, he always felt a deep connection with the native land. His childhood memory of playing by the creek side on his family’s property never left him. That creek became the front and center of Snow Creek Landscaping.
As a creek grows and develops through the years, it carves away at the earth, leaving
behind its path and rich history. Rising waters creates new twists and turns, yet uncovers the beauty that lays deep within the earth. Stones are pushed from one side to the other, building a natural sculpture in the world that constantly changes, but never loses its beauty. Like the creek that influenced Tim’s passion, Snow Creek Landscaping has developed and left its mark in the community that all of its employees call home.
Like a creek, we have developed and strengthened over the years, with a story that is constantly changing and moving forward.
With each passing year, our company creates relationships both with the natural world and the people of WNC. We help our clients discover the true potential of their properties, through hard work and creativity.
In 2018, we will be officially unraveling a new brand, one that defines us as a company, and continues to grow with the surrounding Asheville area. The saplings we planted long ago have developed into massive trees with deep roots, while hardscapes have become one with the earth and built memories that last a lifetime. The positive impact on both our relationships and the environment is what we do. We are doing it with a passion and will continue to do so for years to come.
When a company has been in business for as long as we have, it’s inevitable to have its ups and downs. We learn from each experience, which can guide us into the direction we choose to go as humans. As a mission, we want to go beyond just your typical landscaping company and transcend into a lifestyle. An experience that helps build a story. An opportunity to enrich lives, naturally.
