Brickman is a national provider of landscape contracting services with two local offices servicing Montgomery County, MD.  Both offices are part of the Maryland West Region that is led by Regional Manager Greg Lewandowski.  Brickman began in 1939 when Theodore W. Brickman, Sr. founded the Theodore Brickman Company in suburban Chicago. The company's early success was the by-product of an unwavering commitment to live the Golden Rule with clients and employees. In the ensuing years, delighted clients sparked unprecedented growth through "word of mouth" advertising. Mr. Brickman's son, Dick, joined the company in 1954 after earning a degree in Landscape Architecture and was followed by his son, Scott Brickman, who also earned a degree in Landscape Architecture. Dick Brickman and then Scott led the company until 2012. Today the company is headquartered in Gaithersburg, MD and is under the direction of CEO Andrew Kieran. Brickman has grown into one of the largest and most respected landscape service providers in the nation.
