About

Rising Sun Maintenance was founded on a simple premise: to deliver the very best service at affordable rates to our clients.  Since our beginning in the spring of 1986, we have been doing just that.  We would gladly share the comments from our current customers – of course, with their permission.

Discover the Rising Sun difference – we are here for the long haul, we believe in what we do and we have fun doing it.  We believe we are stewards of our land and work to use environmentally safe and biodegradable products to ensure the future for the next hundred years. After all, this is the Vermont tradition!

Rising Sun's Leadership: Dave Lawrence
Founder Dave Lawrence is a fifth generation Vermonter.  When not attending local schools, he loved the outdoors taking to his bike to reach the favorite swimming hole or to the woods.  Early on, he learned to swing a golf club and honed his skills at the local clubs.  A love of the outdoors led to the start of Rising Sun so he could stay outdoors.

Dave’s upbringing instilled a sense of appreciation and the need to support  the region’s non-profit organizations.  Today, the company’s philanthropic initiatives extend to  the local fire department, maintaining the Dorset Village Green and beautifying the landscapes of the Dorset Historical Society and the Dorset Library.  Rising Sun’s team participates in a score of charitable golf tournaments helping to raise funds for programs supporting our neighbors.
