Owner & General Manager
Will has been working in the landscaping field in the Seattle area since 1993. His love for nature and building make landscaping the perfect profession for him. He started Devonshire in 1999 with a pick-up truck and a donated lawn mower. In his effort to offer superior products and service, Will has achieved certifications in landscape installation, with specialty certifications in paving, permeable paving, retaining wall installation, and the Eco-Pro certification. He credits his company’s success to a steadfast commitment to customer service and the support and encouragement of his employees. He has lived in the Puget Ridge neighborhood of West Seattle since 2001, when he bought his first house. His current role is working behind the scenes on the framework of the company and providing knowledge and support to our two managers, Rick & Dan.
Dan has been dedicated to the landscape maintenance field since 2003, when he joined Devonshire Landscapes. Through his years of experience and continuing education, including certifications as a Certified Landscape Technician and Eco-Pro Sustainable Landscape Professional, he has helped cultivated our unique system for sustainable landscape maintenance in the West Seattle area. Dan is fortunate enough to work daily with a team of like minded individuals to round out our cleanup and maintenance division. He prides himself on his exceptional communication with clients, identifying and finding solutions for inefficiencies in the landscape, and providing a full service product. When not in the landscape you can find Dan hiking in the mountains, tending to his veggie garden, or walking his dogs.
Rick has been in the landscape construction field since high school and earned his Landscape Design/ Build degree from our local S.S.C.C in 2003. He joined our team in 2009 as a crew lead and became Installation Manager in 2013. He has been a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers since 2017 and earned his Eco-Pro certification in 2018. His extensive skill set and training show in his crews’ detailed work, and can be attested to by any of our clients. As our in-house designer/ estimator/ project manager, he is able to translate your ideas into well thought out designs backed by solid pricing, and lead the project through the installation process. Our clients LOVE how easy he is to work with, as well as his ideas for making the most out of their outdoor spaces. Ask him about putting you in touch with previous clients for a referral, or to visit past projects to see our work first hand.
