We are a family owned business started in 1982 by David and Angie Dunlevy. The company was started in ’82 after Dave spent the six previous years learning his craft working in the nursery and landscaping industry in the Washington metropolitan area. In the early days the company consisted of Dave and Angie, one or two employees and a truck. It didn’t stay that way for long. The company moved from Rockville to Gaithersburg in 1984 where it operated until 1990. At that time the shop and daily operations were moved from Gaithersburg to the current location in Poolesville. The office and administrative side followed in 1995.
The company has changed a lot since the early days. There are now over 40 employees and 10 - 12 crews operating daily during the growing season. What has not changed is the personal pride and commitment to excellence that Dave and Angie possess and instill in the people they employ. The company has never been allowed to outgrow the quality standard that they set back in ’82. D & A Dunlevy knows that to be a volume driven company, you must trade some level of quality for the sake of efficiency and the bottom line. This trade-off simply does not fit into our business model.
The goal of the company is to provide the highest level of personalized service. We know about the “industry standard” and we have watched the bar dip lower and lower for years. We measure ourselves, and our service, by comparing our company not to the best available but to the best possible. By providing such high level service, we have been able to attract a customer base that not only recognizes our quality work but that appreciates the efforts put forth by our company and go out of their way to refer us to others. Thank you to all our customers who have put their trust in D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, Inc.
