Surprise Home Makeover For Local Pastor and Wife

Last spring, Pastor Richard Fredericks, of Damascus Road Community Church, and his wife, Sallie, returned from a extended trip to find their family home completely renovated. Richard had requested two church members to work on the house while he was away and left money to cover the expenses. Nearly 100 people from community churches and organizations pitched in to help with the renovation, with volunteers stemming from multiple business trades. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, Inc. has several ties to the Fredericks family and Damascus Road community, and eagerly joined in the endeavor. Our upper management staff spent a Saturday removing an old retaining wall and grading the front yard. The pool area was also entirely renovated with new plantings. A thorough spring clean up and new sod topped off the entire project. The total completed home renovation was an estimated $90,000, which included volunteer labor and donated materials. The Fredericks family has given so much to the nearby community and D & A Dunlevy Landscapers enjoyed the opportunity to give back.
