Sneller History

Sneller has evolved through the years but we've stayed committed to our core principles. We believe we are stronger than ever and well equipped to offer outstanding and reliable services to our customers. Here's a little walk down memory lane…

  • 1984

    Duane Sneller founded Sneller’s Landscaping. For the first 3 years we were a landscape design/build company, focusing exclusively upon landscape design and installation.
  • 1987

    We added our first Lawn Maintenance crew to help our clients maintain their beautiful landscapes. Upon graduating from the MSU Turfgrass Program, Jeff Sneller became the manager of our Lawn Maintenance division and began to grow and improve that division.
  • 1999

    We began to offer snow shoveling services for sidewalks. We had two accounts, and two shovelers, one of whom was Dan Sneller, our current Vice President.
  • 2004

    We attended our first SIMA (Snow & Ice Management Association) convention and began to become more interested in enhancing our snow and ice management division. Over the next few years, we began to focus more of our energy into improving our processes and developing this division of Sneller’s Landscaping.
  • 2009

    Duane Sneller and Joyce Sneller, our founders, officially retired from Sneller’s Landscaping and sold their remaining shares to Jeff and Dan Sneller. At that point, we continued to increase our focus on our niche in the snow market.
  • 2011

    Sneller’s Landscaping was ranked #80 in the Top 100 Snow Contractors by Snow Magazine, and we received the Excellence in Business Award from SIMA (Snow and Ice Management Association). Since then, we have continued in our passion for continuous improvement of our business systems and client satisfaction.
  • Spring 2015

    We added a DBA for our snow division. After 31 years of growth in snow and ice management, Sneller’s Landscaping is now doing business as Sneller Snow & Grounds.
  • Summer 2015

    We became the 12th Snow Removal company in the world to have its systems audited and certified by ISO 9001. Our certified systems provide routine order, consistency, peace of mind, and systematic reliability during snow events.
  • Summer 2018

    We went through the rigorous process of getting our systems audited and re-certified by ISO 9001.
  • And Now

    Our focus is snow, 12 months a year. Our growth has been in snow because our passion is snow. We are not a landscape company that does snow out of necessity in the off season. We are a snow company. Our new name - Sneller Snow & Grounds - more accurately depicts this. We will maintain the Sneller Snow & Grounds name for marketing our summer work, but Sneller Snow & Grounds more accurately defines our focus, our strength, and our passion.
