About us.

With a well-established presence in Northeast Georgia for over 40 years, Shook's offers a wide variety of design and installation services while practicing modern and proven techniques in landscape management. Let our knowledgeable staff show you how quality and experience can make the difference.

Our Story

Over 40 year's ago, Shook's Enterprise was founded by Mr. Jerry Shook, an avid plantsman with a keen eye for classic design and a devotion to proper horticultural techniques. His journey began in Lula, Georgia, by working to develop a future for his family. The business grew exponentially over the next decade.

In 1992, Mr. Shook purchased Smith's Small Engine in Cornelia, Georgia, expanding his operations from Lawn Maintenance services to the Small Engine Shop. This opened up the business to include small engine repair services as well as new equipment sales for commercial customers and spare parts for the most popular brands of lawn equipment.

With his wife, Sarah, Mr. Shook was able to grow his business into the Enterprise it is today. Numerous services have been added over the years, and now Shook's Enterprise is a one-stop source for all of your lawn care and maintenance needs.

Through the years of hard work and customer support, Shook's Enterprise evolved from a one-man operation into the area's most highly regarded Commercial Landscape and Maintenance Provider. In 2010, Shook's Small Engine was renamed to Shook's Power Equipment, now offering the top of the line in premium lawn care products from Ferris, Maruyama, and Hunter Industries Irrigation.

Today, Shook's Enterprise has thousands of satisfied customers. They serve a majority of commercial customers, but some residential as well. Their current range of services is second to none in the North Georgia Area. According to Mr. Shook, "The finished product is always beautiful. We will do whatever we can to make you a happy and satisfied customer, because we realize without our customers, there is no Shook's."
