David Dorin President/Owner
David was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1954 and grew up in the Laurel Park area of Henrico County. He graduated from Hermitage High School 1972 and began working as a construction inspector for VDOT. David’s sixteen years of experience there with all aspects of road and bridge construction led him to be offered a position as an estimator for Interstate Construction Co. in 1988. The road construction freeze of the late 1980s led to David being laid off by interstate in 1990, which is where his landscaping life began. Thanks to the guidance and support from some close friends in the industry, David and his wife Tina started a lawn maintenance company named Dorin’s Lawn Service. His attention to detail and meticulous nature helped this new business support his family of six until 1994 when the Dorin family relocated to a 200 acre farm in Kenbridge, Virginia. Dorin’s Lawn Service slowly turned into a full service landscape company by 2000. His wife Tina passed away in 2006 from a sudden heart attack. He remarried in to 2010 to his wife Merryan and spends his time between their home in Blackstone and the farm in Kenbridge. As David’s sons, Lance, Aaron, and Reagan, finished school they all came to fill roles at their fathers’ side. David currently oversees all aspects of the company he started so many years ago.
Lance was born in Richmond in 1980 and relocated with the family in 1994 to Kenbridge, Virginia. He graduated from Kenston Forest School in 1998 and pursued a career in land surveying for the next few years. In 2003, Lance was invited to fill a full time position with Dorin Landscaping. He saw the potential and the pride he could help create by being a driving force behind a company that bore his name and accepted the position. That same year Lance and his wife Shanley were married. They lived in Victoria until buying a 50 acre farm in Blackstone, Virginia, in 2008. In 2011, Lance and Shanley welcomed their daughter Layla into the world on September 9. Lance is currently the estimator and project manager for Dorin Landscaping and is likely going to be the first person a customer meets. Lance has been a member of the Virginia Society of Landscape Designers and has been certified as a backflow prevention device worker by the state of Virginia as well as a level 1 installer for the Nation Concrete Masonry Association. Lance designs each landscape to suit customers’ needs and, if necessary, collaborates with several industry partners to ensure the absolute best value possible.
Aaron was born in Richmond Virginia in 1982 and relocated with the family in 1994 to Kenbridge, Virginia. He graduated from Kenston Forest School in 2000 and attended Virginia Tech where he earned his Associates degree in Agricultural Science with a specialty in turf grass. Aaron returned to Dorin Landscaping where he and David started forging Dorin Landscaping into the full service company it is today. Aaron and his wife Kristin were married in 2008 and on December 1, 2011, they welcomed their son Charlie into the world. Aaron is currently the field manager for Dorin Landscaping where he implements and oversees all of the services they provide. In addition to his degree, Aaron is also a certified member of International Concrete Paver Institute. Aaron’s hard work and determination guarantees projects are finished in a timely manner and customers are 100 percent satisfied.
Reagan was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1988 and relocated with the family in 1994 to Kenbridge, Virginia. He graduated from Kenston Forest School in 2006 and attended Virginia Tech where he earned his Associates degree in Agricultural Science with a specialty in turf grass. Reagan returned to help continue growing the lawn maintenance division of Dorin Landscaping.

If lawn maintenance is what you need, Reagan is likely the person you will be speaking to. He is constantly pursuing new clients and growing a division of the company that is a great source of pride to him.
