Daniel Plawski, Owner & President
Daniel started mowing lawns in the neighborhood while in high school. His passion for landscaping made his client base grow rapidly as more services were offered. Daniel has been a resident of York County since 2001 and graduated from Tabb High School in 2010.

He went on to study at Old Dominion University however after acquiring several large contracts decided to drop out and peruse his passion. “I learn a lot more when I’m out in the field working with my customers and employees than I ever would in a classroom shuffling through papers”. Daniel has since taken only those classes that are important to his business.

Through Education, experience, training, and consultation, Daniel has the horticultural knowledge to run a landscaping business. This combined with his drive and business intuition has led to rapid expansion and now our team has decades of experience in the “green industry” serving a large and diverse client base.
Beverley Wells, Office Manager
Beverly joined us in 2011 and is one of the smartest people working for Peninsula. Bev needs to be smart because her job is to make sure that the gazillions of requests, schedule changes, and bills are all addressed quickly and effectively.

She manages accounts payable and receivables, works directly with the management team, and is a central contact for customer questions. Beverly lives in Newport News and in her spare time, she loves taking care of her two dogs, Sophie and Jackie.

Beverly has over 20 years of managerial experience working for several leading regional companies such as A&R diversified, and the former DLS Landscaping Services.
Krystal Westphal, Lead Commercial Foreman
Without Krystal, our office would be boring place to work. Krystal is great with customers and she makes sure that all of them are satisfied with our services. She helps us be #1 in communication and passes complaints and requests to our sales and operations team.

Krystal loves getting dirty and from time to time, you may see her out on a jobsite doing just that! Krystal is married and resides in Hampton with her husband and two children.
Pedro Lucas, Operations Manager
Like a lot of parents these days, Pedro says he has “no life” other than transporting his four kids to their soccer games and dance recitals, but he enjoys spending time with his wife and visiting his extended family in Richmond. Before Peninsula, Pedro worked for a regional landscape company that was on the top 50 national list.

At Peninsula Landscaping, we rely on his industry experience to help us better understand the operations aspect of the business, and to deliver services that clients want.
Kimberly Kinard, Business Development Manager
Kimberly has been in sales for years working for the Hotel Industry and the City of Hampton in the past. Here at Peninsula Landscaping Inc. she represents our company at meetings and events.

She is also the point of contact for HOA, Multi-family, and business clients. Kim ensures that all of our existing clients are satisfied and is key at communicating enhancement and renewals to our owner and management team.
