Meet Our Team

Tom Snogles
Owner/Founder

Tom founded Sun Power Lawn Care in 2014. Starting at age 19 Tom worked for Test Valley Borough Council in Hampshire, England which fostered his thirst for horticultural knowledge. He then attended Sparsholt College, England, an agricultural college, for 4 years. He came to the USA in 2007 working for 7 years installing/maintaining landscapes in Gainesville, FL. When he’s not working, you can find him cycling the Hawthorne Trail, relaxing at Depot Park, or kayaking near one of North Florida’s unique springs.

Chelsea Pinholster
Office Manager

Chelsea started as our office assistant in June of 2018 and handles our bookkeeping, hiring, sales, and collections. A native Floridian, Chelsea enjoys the year-round sun and friendly communities here. On her days off you’ll find her outside hiking with her two fluffy dogs, planning her next trip, or painting on the back porch.
