Sunrise recently helped a client’s son with his Eagle Scout project. Here is a letter he wrote to us:
Dear Sunrise Landscape + Design,
For a number of years, The Eldin School in Reston, Virginia, wanted a community garden to provide a fun and interactive way to teach students science, life skills, and maintenance of a sustainable earth through creating and maintaining a garden. My Eagle Scout Service Project was to construct a 250 square foot raised garden at the school. … At completion, the project required a total of 186 man hours and donated materials.
Sunrise Landscape + Design not only provided most of the materials for my Eagle Scout Service Project but also helped me with design concepts. So thank you very much for all of your help and support with my project. If not for Sunrise Landscape + Design’s generous donation and delivery of the materials, the project would not have happened.
Ryan, Eagle Scout, Vienna, VA
“First, let me say how thoroughly professional Simon and Osman were with the installation in my front yard. They were very polite, very helpful with my millions of questions, and quite exacting with the placement of the items…and, (very important to me) with the cleanup…I love the selections Richard made. The plants along the front walk really help define the space, as the decorators like to say. The cherry tree is lovely, my maple found a new home, and the mulch and new sod gives everything a professional, clean, neat finish… He made all the right choices.”
Kate S., Herndon, VA
“Once the actual work began, I was in awe of how hardworking the two-man crew of Osman and Manuel was and how carefully they put the patio together.
Peter came each day to check on the crew’s progress and another fine staffer, Pablo, came periodically to check on things and assist Osman and Manuel with the project.
One of the best things we noticed was how clean our yard was left at the end of each work day. We really appreciated that! At any rate, the patio turned out great and we are super pleased!
Now we need to get something to sit on! (We actually have a couple chairs on order).
Thanks again to Sunrise and its terrific staff!”
Chip and Anne M., Reston, VA
“Professional, presentable field staff, always with their name embroidered on their uniform. Service was always prompt and professional … even the office staff echoed the same personable professionalism. Sunrise is “the right size”, big enough to employ and retain top-notch people(and offer extended services), yet small enough to feel like family.”
Elizabeth M., Great Falls, VA
“I want to take this opportunity to tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with the patio that your crew recently built for my townhouse. what was once a veritable clay swamp has been transformed into a beautiful stone masterpiece.”
Angela K., Reston, VA
“The design and installation of the landscaping in my courtyard was done professionally and timely. The subsequent annual service has been completed in the same professional manner. Thanks!”
Donna, Reston, VA
“I worked with Peter Rhyne to landscape my front yard at my townhouse in Reston. I was very pleased with the design and oversight that Peter provided. He incorporated my ideas and needs into the design; he went with me to pick out the plants and was on site to make sure everything went as planned. Even though this was a small project, Peter took care of every detail…”
Bonnie G., Reston, VA
“During our years of working with Richard he has treated us with patience, respect and exhibited a special talent in designing to our specific requirements. He clearly produced the final results we had expected. He is a joy to work with.”
Theodore B, Beacon Hill, VA
“My maintenance team always delivers beyond my expectation. Quality and worry free service!”
Gary P., Ashburn, VA
“My lawn service is limited to mowing. This has been done very competently and punctually. The workers are courteous and very efficient. I also appreciate their care and thorough clean up when done.”
Anthony F., Sterling, VA
“From the beginning when I needed someone to spruce up my former property for sale, thru the yearly lawn maintenance of my current residence, to the occasional need for a special project, I have been most satisfied with Sunrise.”
John L., Reston, VA
“The design was far more than we expected in terms of the thinking and quality of the design itself. My wife and I said at the time we accepted the bid that if the execution turned out half as good as the design, it would be beautiful. The design fits into our overall landscaping so well that it looks like it has always been there. Our yard is now the envy of the neighborhood!”
Fred B., Great Falls, VA
“The aeration job done by your service professionals was the best service we’ve had done. The gentlemen who comes to provide the routine services is very polite and informative.”
Robin A., Reston, VA
“After…I fired the contractor and called Sunrise, Joe Markell met with me at my home the same day I called him. The following day he had a full crew at our house redoing the mishaps of the previous contractor and finishing the job. I am a very meticulous customer and was astounded by the quality of Sunrise’s work. The pavers were laid and blended beautifully! The workers were friendly and professional and arrived every day to complete the driveway in a timely manner. I have nothing but 100% praise for the work that sunrise did for me and my family.”
Chris G., Ashburn, VA
“Sunrise is probably the best contractor/home improvement experience we have ever had. The entire project, from estimate to completion, the professionalism of every Sunrise employee we dealt with, and ultimately the quality of the finished product…just could not have been better. I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t know…but some of the smallest things have left the most positive impressions ie. the guys never left the job site messy, every night they straightened up, swept up the driveway, etc. Trust me, that did not go unnoticed or unappreciated.”
Bob S.,Ashburn, VA
“Thank you very much. I am so excited that the project was able to be completed last week. It (the backyard) looks SO much better and I can’t wait to see how things look in a few months and as the plants mature. Thank you for your hard work and patience with the changes made along the way. I will definitely recommend you and Sunrise in the future.”
Jennifer G. Broadlands, VA
“We will definitely be calling you again. My husband was very happy as well (which is a big accomplishment). It’s been a great experience.”
