Sunrise’s History

Sunrise Lawn/Landscaping Services, Inc. was formed in 1986 in a small shop located in Reston, Virginia. It began with two employees (one being myself), two mowers, and a pick-up truck that had been in our family since 1964. We have steadily grown to over 40 employees, with a variety of trucks and equipment that allow us to accomplish virtually any landscape related task.

The Sunrise name has been in my family for over 60 years. First, my great grandparents owned and operated Sun Rise Dairy located in Reston/Herndon, Virginia, and then my father and grandfather owned and operated Sunrise American (this was an American Oil Company Service Station) that was located at the intersection of Route 7 and Baron Cameron Avenue. Later, the name was changed to “Sunrise Amoco”.
