1925 Eagle Creek Farm Opens
John W. Esterline Sr purchased 300 acres in northwest Marion County to restore the land and raise cattle and chickens. His son Merrill Esterline left a career in chemical engineering, and chose to join his father working in the fresh air in 1929.
1930’s & 1950’s
Eagle Creek sustained itself through The Great Depression with food staples from the farm side. When the economy improved, the landscaping business boomed with both residential and commercial projects.
1960’s & 1970’s
Eagle Creek landscaping continued to grow and Eagle Creek added the third generation with Tom Esterline, Charles Esterline, and John Esterline III joining the team, all with education in landscaping and horticulture.
1980’s & 1990’s
In the 80’s, Eagle Creek invested more in the Garden Center and it grew to be a destination place for local plant enthusiasts and garden DIY’ers. The 4th Generation got involved with Tom Esterline Jr, David Esterline, and Mark Esterline joining the team plus Rob Darmer who runs the Garden Center.
Both the Garden Center and Landscaping services continue to grow. Eagle Creek’s top services now are complete landscape maintenance plans, where our team pro-actively manages all of your landscape needs year-round, and high-end custom landscape design and installation.
