Nearly 50 years crafting the outdoor lifestyle experience.

In 1968, a 22 year old Gary Schnurr roared across the Kansas plain in his Chevy dump truck, answering a desperate need in neighboring Colorado.

Contractors and hardscape retailers were seeking a service-oriented supplier of rock, sand and flagstone. Gary aggressively met that need, not just by sourcing high- quality products but rather delivering what the retailers really wanted; excellent customer service.

From there, Gary built one of the largest retail landscape suppliers in the west, servicing Colorado and Arizona from 45 locations as Pioneer Sand Company.

Since the very beginning, Pioneer has been on a mission to provide unparalleled service and delivery with the most diverse selection of landscaping and hardscaping products. To this day, Pioneer has one of the largest fleets in the industry, setting the standard for outdoor living material delivery in the Southwest.

Our commitment to the standards set by Gary and rest of the Pioneer family of companies over nearly a half century are the standards that drive Pioneer today. Pioneer is now a portfolio company of JLL Partners, a middle-market private equity firm with a 28-year track-record of adding value to complex investments through financial and operational expertise.
