Donna Stiehler: Owner/Operators
Rich & Donna are both graduates of Southwest
University, receiving their degrees in 1994. Donna taught
Kindergarten for a few years and Rich headed the landscaping
division for his father who was a homebuilder in San Antonio.
In 1996, a company was born. After realizing their love for
the industry, Rich’s talent in design, and Donna’s ability to
manage the legal and accounting division, they put
everything into creating ‘Creative Visions Landscaping’.
From a push lawnmower, homemade trailer, and no employees,
CVL ‘grew’ into a corporation consisting of a fleet of
vehicles and equipment, and just under 50 employees. In
2006, they celebrated their 10th anniversary. In 2003, 2006
and 2008, Comal County voted
Creative Visions ‘Best Landscaper of the Year’. Although the
company has grown, Rich & Donna keep the small business
philosophy in which each and every client are as important as
the first client served, back in 1996. Rich is a
certified landscape professional #617 from TNLA and licensed
irrigator with license #LI0017086.
