The Garden Corner Nursery was started by Bucket Keltner in 1961 and sold to Tim and Marie Saber in 1964. Saber, who was an arborist/orchardist by trade concentrated on landscape installation while his wife ran the retail shop and greenhouse. When the Sabers opted to retire in 1971, it offered a long sought opportunity to Joe Snavely to own his own plant related business.

With Chris, freshly graduated from University of Maryland's ornamental horticulture program they seized the chance. The business grew, was joined by brother Jon and expanded to a second operation in Hagerstown, MD in 1987. Joe retired some years ago and Jon opted to retire and after 28 successful years. The Hagerstown store was closed at the end of 2015, leaving Chris, in the Chambersburg store to continue development of Snavely's Garden Corner's excellent reputation as full service garden centers.
