Scott Hammond established Blue Creek Landscape as a sole proprietorship in 1999. Initially a full-service landscape company, Blue Creek Landscape has designed and installed water features since its inception. In 2002, the company was among the first in the nation to become recognized as a Certified Aquascape Contractor (CAC). In 2004, the company narrowed its focus to "water-features only" and emerged as the region's premier water feature designer, consulting, and construction company. Blue Creek was awarded — The 2008 Certified Aquascape Contractor of the Year — designation and received the CAC Character Award in 2008 as well.
