Kent Petersen started Petersen Tree Service in 1978 which had grown to be become a respected and successful tree service serving Northern Wisconsin. In 1992 Stoney Creek Landscaping was formed to provide landscape services to a very broad customer base in Northern Wisconsin. The retail store, Stoney Creek Home and Garden was started in 1995 by the Petersen Family and a dedicated group of employees with a dream to create a unique retail shopping experience and provide products and service not offered in the area.
It has grown over the years to become very successful and one of the top destination stores in Northern Wisconsin. Offering some of the most unique decor items for inside and outside of your home.
The management and staff at Stoney Creek Home and Garden do an incredible job of running and growing the businesses and have allowed Kent the opportunity to pursue and develop other businesses. His oldest daughter Erika is now managing the Garden Center. With the biggest/littlest boss Nora (Kent & Lori's 1st Grandchild).
Kent is still very much involved and enjoys stopping by to feed the fish and connect with customers when he his in Minocqua. When wandering around the Garden Center if you ever wonder, "who would ever buy that?" just know it was Kent who bought it first. One of his greatest pleasures is seeing funky and unique items going home with a very excited new owner.
