Marty Timmerman

Landscape Designer

I have recently started working for Bear creek Landscaping and have enjoyed meeting all the people that make up the Bear Creek Landscaping company/ family. A company that strives for excellence, professionalism and creative edge to each and every project we do.

I have been in the landscape/ hardscape business for the last 17 years, and have learned so much, from doing maintenance to installing water features, retaining walls, paver patios, driveways, walkways too. Can’t forget plants and fire pits, wood to stone structures as well.

Like Walt Disney as a child, I was always so excited by the narrator, the narrator would begin, the curtains drawn back, a paint brush would wash across the screen, with each stroke, a scenery would develop and a story to be told.

That has been my passion, to create and tell a story, to share with each customer the picture we create, so they can share that with those around them.

A high quality, reliable, and affordable irrigation system. Also, to inform our customers of the different options in which we can provide irrigation to their landscape needs.

Some of my personal interests are: hiking, fishing, backpacking, camping, surfing and snowboarding. Also spending time with my son most of all. Everything life has to offer me.
