An Idea turned into a Tradition: Giving back to Sycolin Creek Elementary School

Giving back and educating the Loudoun community are two core principles infused into the team at Sunrise Landscape + Design. One of the opportunities to give back came while dropping off Dillon, son of Sunrise Owner, Joe Markell, off at school. In 2009 Dillion, attended the two years old Sycolin Creek Elementary School where the grounds were bare. There were no trees to sit under and read a book or to offer shade to those students that were too hot from the summer sun.  With an idea and a desire to give back to their community, Sunrise Landscape + Design decided to donate trees and shrubs to Sycolin Creek Elementary School and teach their students about proper planting, pruning and the benefits of planting trees for their school. Now in their fifth year, the dedicated team at Sunrise Landscape + Design just completed their annual Arbor Day plantings at Sycolin Creek Elementary. Over the past five years, Sunrise has donated two Saucer Magnolia’s, three Kwansan Cherry and Willow Oak Trees, three Zelkova’s, a Maple Tree and a new bench for the front of the school. An idea has become a tradition that everyone involved looks forward to each year! Are you interested in Sunrise Landscape + Design’s Education and Community involvement programs?

Celebrating 25 Years in Business

Yes it is hard to believe but Sunrise is celebrating over 25 years in business. If you take the business name of Sun Rise it has been in my family since the 1930’s when my great grandparents were operating Sun Rise Dairy. It is amazing to look at the changes that have occurred since I started back in 1986. A gallon of gas was $.89, a movie ticket was $2.75 and computers were just coming available. We are so much more efficient now than we were back then due to the technology of computers and communications, even mowers are more productive. We have survived 4 (?) recessions, numerous Presidents and several natural disasters (hurricanes, and several 12” snow storms). As with any business we have had our ups and downs, our share of great employees and not so great employees; but our core values have not changed all that much. We have always tried to serve our customers needs and bring value to what we do. Landscaping is a part of everyone’s life; from the parks we visit, the athletic fields we play on, the yards and outdoor living spaces we have at our homes are all areas that have touched our lives and give us great memories. That is what I have of my years in business; great memories and milestones that I am very proud of. We have developed a great facility, great people, quality work and safe equipment, and a base of great customers that we are adding to every day. Sunrise is a company you can trust to be professional, look out for their customer’s interests and deliver the quality that their customers have come to rely on. I
