About Us

Our Staff

D & A Dunlevy StaffD & A Dunlevy is able to consistently generate excellent results because of our world-class staff. We hire and train people who share our vision of exceptional service and elegant landscaping. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers employees are the largest contributing factor in customer satisfaction. We only hire creative, hard working, and engaging people because only they can meet our goals.

We, at D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, continue to control the growth of our company in an effort to provide the necessary specialized attention to our customers from our senior management. The result is uninterrupted supervision from professionals for every project.

We are at our best when installing a multi-dimensional job that requires participation from each of our crews. After a landscape/construction project is completed, our customers are provided the opportunity to contract services provided by our landscape maintenance division. Our maintenance services ensure the proper care of your new landscape, allowing you to enjoy your investment for years to come.

Each of our crews are led by a “crew leader” with a minimum of five years experience, including at least three of these years with D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, Inc. Our crews work in teams to fully maximize the skill of each individual and to also learn from each other. All of our employees are cross-trained and we pride ourselves on having the best craftsmen in the area.

The way our management is structured allows us to offer a variety of services that fall under the umbrella of landscape contracting. We can, thereby, provide a more complete landscape service that fulfills nearly all of our customer’s needs with just one phone call.
