Rocky Fork Company History
COMPANY HISTORY
Rocky Fork was founded in 1991 in New Albany, Ohio. We had humble beginnings; we first called a barn our office and our 12 employees were our small, but mighty, family. However, our years of experience, unrivaled customer service, and passion for landscape helped us grow out of that barn and into the company we are today, with over 70 employees, 40 trucks, and offices in New Albany and Dublin. We pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive selection of services, the likes of which are unmatched in Central Ohio. By offering a wide range of services, we have developed long lasting relationships with our clients, and generated a reputation for landscaping and fencing excellence.
Rocky Fork Company Philosophy

OUR PHILOSOPHY

At Rocky Fork Company, people are our priority. Without our award-winning team, we would not be able to offer the wide range of services or high-quality, efficient customer service to any of our clients. To put it simply, we wouldn’t be able to do what we love without them. We are a career company that values hard work, professionalism, and excellence, as reflected in our mission statement “only our best.”
