Scott Picker
Owner/Sales Manager

“I love the challenges and opportunities that business ownership provides, but most of all it is Aspen Creek’s customers that make it all worth it.”

Scott is a licensed landscape contractor, Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute certified, and president of the Oregon Landscape Contractor’s Association. He and his brother started a small landscaping company in high school, and after four successful years, Scott stepped aside to earn his bachelor’s degree in agriculture education from Washington State University in 1998. Scott and his wife, Amelia, have lived in Dundee since 2000.

Bill Spelbring
Landscape Designer and Construction Salesperson

Bill moved from the Midwest to Oregon in the late 1970s and earned his degree in landscape architecture from the University of Oregon in 1983. By listening to his customers’ wants and needs, he has designed and built landscapes using his expertise in hardscapes, water features, lawns, plantings, outdoor lighting and other outdoor living environments. Bill enjoys the contrast of man-made elements softened by Aspen Creek’s rich palette of plants. He looks forward to bringing you the landscape you desire.

From Our Clients

"I love everything about the Christensen/3 Towers install! My favorite pieces are the cobblestone driveway and walk ways, and the serene ambiance the water features add. The garden off the kitchen gives this landscape a truly European feel. Who wouldn’t want to relax here?” Monica Nuno, Office Manager
