About D&P

It all started with two 12 year olds and a couple of push mowers. Not yet old enough to drive, but eager to make money, Doug and Perry began mowing lawns on the weekends for their neighbors and friends' parents. As word began to spread, the young teenagers decided to take their business to the water to cover more ground for those places out of walking range. And as the story goes, the boys loaded a bass boat with mowers and trimmers and took to the water to service their many lakeside clients.

Fast-forward to today and now D&P is a successful, award-winning landscaping business with multiple trained and experienced employees. We continue to service clients on and around the lake – we just use a different mode of transportation than that of our earlier days.

Doug and Perry, I have watched you & the business grow from when you came by boat, because you couldn't drive yet, to become a very professional landscaping business.  We very pleased with the services you offer. You have always been available, very friendly, & professional. I would gladly recommend you to our friends & neighbors.



D and P Landscaping provided us with a beautiful landscape layout for our home which was new construction and previously had no landscaping at all.  We gave them a vision of what we wanted to accomplish and they chose and installed the bushes/plants that fit perfectly.

Paul & Janet


We have been using D and P landscaping now for several years. Being a part time lake resident, I don't have time to care for my lawn and landscape. D & P does a great job; they are dependable, punctual and keep our yard looking great. I would highly recommend them.

D and Perry have kept our yard looking great for over 5 years.  The Snows would recommend D and P Landscape to anyone looking for someone who will treat their property like it was their own!  We appreciate the good job that you always do for us.

Pat & Jerry


We want to thank you for all of your attention to detail in planning, preparing and completing the first stage of our landscaping.  You were always careful to explain to us what was being done and why. We also were grateful to you for cleaning up our neighbor Nancy's yard after the last current need for access to our yard through hers.
