There is a memorial set up for her here at the garden center and we welcome all to come by and visit. Feel free to bring a stone with a message on it, stones are also provided in store.

Can anyone tell me the name of this bush?
After only one week of watering new grass seed! I'm using seed blankets from Lowes that are supposed to decompose in 6 - 8 months. Seed was Jonathan Green Black Beauty & Supreme Shade Mix from Snows Garden Center.
We demand Sox supervise Our landscaping project!
Do you have any Ilex Vomitoria (yaupon holly) or Prunus Caroliniana (cherry laurel)? Thanks.
Those who know our family know that we are understanding and patient with businesses that are making a conscious effort to do their best. We are not the type of people to complain, but I would be doing a disservice to my friends and family NOT to share this experience. [ ] Last fall, Donna and I decided we would like to extend our patio to include a walkout for sitting area with a fire pit. We hired Snow Garden & Landscape Center to scope out a solution with estimate, and perform the installation; but, have encountered nothing shy of a complete disaster ever since: lethargic installers, shoddy work, ignored requests for service and assistance, deliverables under warranty not receiving any attention when defects were identified, and on multiple occasions, making excuses when evidence of those defects were presented to the hardscape director, Ben Reid. What makes this all the more disappointing is that we never saw it coming. We had used their service previously, with no issue (different agent), and felt confident we could return to this business for a major design and installation such as this. We felt it would be a nice gift to our family upon my returning from a year-long deployment –an additional area of our home to which we could invite friends and family to enjoy themselves. Now we're completely embarrassed to bring them out to see it because of such poor workmanship. Interestingly, we talked ad nauseam about our concerns with drainage and the effects of settling in the area of installation, but Ben assured us he had a plan. We saw no evidence of any effective drainage solutions following the installation. To avoid a legal battle, and incurring an even greater expense with retaining an attorney, we pleaded with the owner, Corbin Snow to come out to our home to see for himself. He claimed he and Ben came out to our home (when we weren’t home I might add) to evaluate the damage. Subsequently, he forwarded, via email, a commitment to resolve what they believed to be the problems with our walkout. They never once coordinated a time to visit when we were actually home, so we may be a part of this evaluation process. What we shared with Ben and the Snow team, is what you see in the photos we have posted. 1. Sunken walkout platform, that creates significant pooling when it rains 2. The metal perimeter band raised above the structure, creating a not only an unsightly design, but a trip hazard for us, our children and our guests 3. Sharp corner edges of the metal perimeter band exposed, creating a trip hazard and potential for cuts 4. Metal perimeter band separating from the flagstone platform, thus creating a space where debris, rocks, weeds, and the like can enter 5. As a result of the pooling water, holes starting to form in the spaces between the flagstone 6. Significant pooling immediately outside the area of the walkout – depth: ankle-deep 7. Improper re-install of pre-existing sprinkler head. It is now completely exposed just below the bottom of the head Keep in mind, our installation was in November 2017. We began to experience (and report) the aforementioned issues as early March 2018. The response we received from Ben Reid was to wait it out because he believe a colder winter and frozen ground contributed to what we were reporting. For the amount we paid, we expected the type of work you see represented on their website and social media platforms. However, the service and quality of product, is quite distinct. We are not a family with a lot of money, and we appreciated that this business is a family-owned business. We felt they would be a company we could trust because of the family-oriented mentality. I suspect that only applies when it comes to the Snow family, and does not extend to its family of customers. Let’s be real, we ALL make mistakes, but the fact that Snow Landscape and Garden Center refused to acknowledge their errors with design and installation when the proof was presented to them in the form of pictures is highly unacceptable, and their customer service leaves MUCH to be desired. If Snow Landscape and Garden Center had spent as much time fixing their problems as they did talking around them, I would speculate that the issues could have been resolved much sooner. Friends and family in the Charlottesville, Zion Crossroads/Gordonsville and Louisa areas, do yourselves, your friends and family a favor and share the knowledge of this company’s poor performance. Learn from our mistakes, do your research, and do not do business with a company that deflects issues and makes excuses instead of fixing problems. Thank you! ** SEE REPLIES FOR MORE PHOTOS **
