Our Story

Gunnar and Merri Whitehead moved to the Wood River Valley from New Hampshire in 1990 to play hockey. Like many enterprising young boys, Gunnar Whitehead, owner of Whitehead’s Landscaping began mowing lawns at a very early age when he helped his family’s landscaping business in New London, New Hampshire.

 

After moving to the Wood River Valley in 1991 and settling into the lifestyle here, Gunnar started his own business on a small scale in 1994 mowing lawns and installing irrigation systems in the evening after he finished his day job. Merri worked as a manager for a retail store and learned how to do books and payroll, which proved valuable as she began to keep records for Gunnar's new business.

 

His hard work and commitment to completing each job with precision paid off, and by the following summer, he had enough customers to keep him busy full time. The business has grown steadily ever since.

Whitehead's Landscaping has grown and prospered with new products, new techniques and valuable employees. Gunnar and Merri have worked together as a team to implement new ideas into the business plan. The idea to implement organic fertilizer came after their son reacted to the non-organic fertilizer used on their lawn. They also utilize vermicomposting, another organic method of nourishing grass and plants.
