Patrick-Crusse Snows Garden Center

Patrick Crusse

Landscape Architect

As a Charlottesville native, Patrick spent many years exploring the woods and creeks of central Virginia.  That love of the outdoors naturally developed into an interest in plants and outdoor spaces.

Patrick began mowing lawns at the age of eight.  His first full time job was as a landscape laborer and, climbing the ladder, he eventually managed several crews for a local design-build firm.  After graduating from West Virginia University in 1998, with a Bachelors of Science in Landscape Architecture, Patrick began working with clients to develop and implement landscape plans for their homes and offices.

His grass roots work history led Patrick to open his own business in 2004 and he continues to practice as a Landscape Architect today.  He brings decades of hands on experience, and a multi-faceted knowledge of outdoor construction to every project.

Patrick is excited to team up with Snow’s Garden Center and looks forward to working with wonderful people to provide unique landscape solutions.8

Zach Pittinger

Garden Center Manager

Zach’s first introduction to our industry began at the Behnke Nurseries Company in Washington, D.C. Growing up in both rural and urban areas, Zach gained an appreciation for plants working with his parents in their home vegetable garden. As a youth, he became invested in landscape design as a hobby and now thoroughly enjoys creating “designed plant communities”.

Having graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Horticulture, Zach plunged into residential design and maintenance working with high-end residential clients in Bethesda, Potomac, Georgetown, and Great Falls, VA. After his job with the Glenstone Foundation, he moved into higher education having worked for University of Maryland and became the Horticulture and Grounds Manager for George Washington University. Zach has worked exhaustively with native plants. He holds his Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional Certification (CBLP) and has mentored under numerous well-known horticulturists. Zach’s connections with young professionals and vendors from all over the east coast allows him to function as the main recruiter for Snow’s.

Outside of work, Zach enjoys hiking, cooking, tennis, history, and biblical studies. Most recently he relocated to Charlottesville to pursue his desire to marry his now wife, Maegan.
