BrightView has been selected to care for landscapes in Virginia’s Colonial Williamsburg.

“We are honored to bring our expertise to this great attraction,” said Andrew Masterman, president and CEO of BrightView Cos. “When an organization makes the decision to source a service like landscaping to an outside company, they must have every confidence that work will be done to the highest standard and in a manner that respects not only the guest experience, but in the case of Colonial Williamsburg, the attraction’s historical significance.”

The gardens and grounds are a key feature of the guest experience, said Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Vice President of Operations Robert Underwood.

“BrightView’s work for other historic attractions, including the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and Governor’s Island in New York was one of the reasons we selected them,” he said.

Iconic Historic Area gardens and specialty arrangements remain under the direct care of Colonial Williamsburg personnel. Many longtime foundation landscape professionals now make up the BrightView team, servicing areas including greens, streetscapes and modern hospitality and retail areas covering more than 300 acres.
