Our in-house economist and fitness champion, David also serves as our corporate manager, overseeing our landscaping division with its 25 designers and 65 installation crews. David joined the Merrifield Garden Center team in the spring of 1976 when he was a 17-year-old senior at Madison High School in Vienna. Since then he’s worked virtually every job in the company, proving himself to be a hard worker who can conquer any project, large or small. Today you may see David visiting landscape job sites, designing a backyard oasis, helping customers in the nursery or coaching our office staff to get up and take a lap of at least 250 steps every hour. When he’s not working, David enjoys spending time with his family, exercising and flying helicopters.
