Looking back – The Sunrise Story

Sunrise Landscape + Design have been part of the Northern Virginia community for over 27 years. Originally formed in 1986 as Sunrise Lawn and Landscaping Services in a small shop in Reston, the company has grown to over 40 employees and an assortment of equipment and vehicles. The Sunrise name has been synonymous with the owner, Joe Markell's family for over 60 years. Sun Rise Dairy, located in Reston, was owned by Joe's great grandparents and Sunrise Amoco located off Baron Cameron Avenue, was owned by his father and grandfather. As Northern Virginia developed and changed, Sunrise Lawn and Landscaping Services evolved into Sunrise Landscape + Design. However, the commitment to deliver quality products, timely service and provide an outstanding experience for each client has remained the same for all of these years. The” Sunrise Way” is built on the principles of honesty and integrity. Just like a handshake was a contract and your word was a bond, Sunrise Landscape + Design stand behind their products, promises and service. Being a leader in their industry, Sunrise focuses on sustainable landscape solutions for both residential and commercial clients.  When creating landscape designs, they use plantings that are native and thrive in the climate and soil of Northern Virginia. They also focus on being "green" by recycling material used at each installation, install LED lights in their holiday and outdoor lighting systems and use and install water runoff systems to maximize rain water. Being earth friendly is another component of the "Sunrise Way" to reduce their carbon footprint and create environmentally friendly landscaping systems. Their commitment to their community, environment and clients are the reasons Sunrise Landscape + Design have been part of Northern Virginia for over

Sunrise Performs Communtiy Service in Leesburg, Virginia

Sycolin Creek Elementary School in Leesburg, VA is in the process of designing and installing Phase II of their playground. When they looked across their student body, with approximately 10% of the student population in the special education program, SCES realized they needed an equally unique playground where all of the students could have fun and experience the joy of inclusive play. Through grants and PTA fundraisers SCES is slowly raising the money to build the playground. They were able to get a local church to build the walls surrounding the playground area but were in need of some sprucing up and shade. Sunrise owner, Joe Markell, whose children attend Sycolin Creek, donated 4 Zelkova trees to plant around the playground area. Sunrise employees donated their time and helped students from the regular education classes alongside students from the special needs classes to plant the 15 foot tall trees. It was a great event which was almost cancelled by the rain but then the sun broke out as well as smiles on everyone's faces. There will be elements in this playground to allow every child to engage in meaningful and appropriate play and now thanks to Sunrise Landscape + Design they'll have lots of shade to play under as well.
