About Summit Landscape Management

Summit Landscape Management, Inc was formed in 1998 by Bill VanderVelde and Michael B. Verhulst. Bill and Mike have always pursued quality commercial and residential customers. The goal is not only to meet the customer’s needs, but to exceed expectations. Summit continues to grow from their first winter of two plow trucks and one shoveler to multiple lawn maintenance and landscape crews, fertilization programs, and a full service irrigation department. Summit is able to service a customer’s account from the initial construction to the yearly maintenance.

In 2004, Bill and Mike began a sister company – Summit Tree Service, Inc. to complete the range of services. With the addition of the tree service company and the irrigation crews, Summit provides the full landscape management package; Summit can clear a property, install irrigation and landscape, and maintain landscape needs. The growth at Summit has been steady over the years and will continue into the future. Summit has become a leader through:

  • Innovation – adapting to the changes of our clients’ needs and requirements;
  • Professionalism – representing our clients’ image to the fullest;
  • Competitiveness – maximizing the return on clients’ investment.

Today Summit Landscape Management, Inc. and Summit Tree Service, Inc. are owned and operated by Bill VanderVelde.

We are changing with the economic and environmental climate through every aspect of our practices to meet our clients’ vision. Our goal will continue to be to provide quality services with long-term benefits. We want to be the single phone call needed for all of our customers’ needs.


To promote ecological responsibility while giving purpose to the environment around us.


To deliver a quality environment at a competitive price while maintaining financial success. This derives from the strength and intuition of our team, the ability to contend strategically, and our relentless customer focus.
