Druffel Design and Landscape

Our Story

Druffel Design and Landscape is an award-winning landscaping services provider in the Greater Cincinnati Area. The company was founded in 1970 by two enterprising Cincinnati high school entrepreneurs who formed a partnership around the core philosophy that consistent dedication to quality services at a competitive price point would provide longevity. During their first year of operations grossed just over $8,000 in revenue. A mere seven years later the company had grown by over 1,600 percent, but partner Mike Schmerge elected to sell his equity in the business to Dan and the “Druffel” brand was born.


The Druffel Way

Since 1970 we’ve been working to become the best landscape company possible. Our dedication to quality has helped us reach that level of excellence and we will continue to work to improve ourselves with every project we do.

Continued Growth

In 1983 we continued to grow, investing in property in Morrow, Ohio to develop a wholesale nursery business now known as Double D Plant Ranch, as well as the investment of the operations center in Walnut Hills. However, we owe our continued success and growth to the same core philosophy that we have always maintained, any job worth doing is a job worth doing right.
