Our Story

"It all started with my '88 Suburban, a dump trailer, and a gray dog that could shake straw." —Jeremy


Creation Appreciation began in 2002 as a part-time business venture in the Afton area of Nelson County, Virginia. During the next couple of years, services and demand expanded to make Creation Appreciation a full-time, full-service landscaping company.

In the spring of 2005, Creation Appreciation bought Sunshine LawnCare to include lawn maintenance in its list of services. About that same time, the first four employees were hired, and they are still working with us today.

In 2009, the company converted to an LLC, and we have created a new hardscapes division, headed by an experienced designer/installer, who specializes in hardscapes and ponds.


Creation Appreciation is now comprised of a team crew of twenty (or more), in addition to our current supply of trucks, trailers, and equipment. Our work is mostly residential, concentrated in Stoney Creek and Wintergreen, however, other clients include commercial accounts in Waynesboro and Charlottesville, as well as a few property associations in the area.

We have spent these last seventeen years building a team with the equipment, experience, and inventory necessary to provide you with quality service in a timely manner.
