Richard started his landscaping company in 1980, while still a freshman in high school. The company started out mowing lawns and trimming bushes. It grew all through his high and college years. By 1988, it was a thriving landscaping company that provided complete design, installation and landscaping services. That successful company grew until 2014, when it was sold and Richard moved to Lancaster.
In 2015, Eshelman Mill Gardens was purchased because of the outstanding talent that was already present in that company. With the purchase of that company, came the skill, craftsmanship and decades of experience that Lauren, Joe, Amy, Cory and Tony have. That vast knowledge was added to the more than 30 years experience of the management.
The company’s name was changed to Eshelman Mill Garden & Landscapes Inc. Our team continues to grow only because of our commitment to excellent service and knowledge. We truly believe that our team is unique in its amount of knowledge, ability for creative design and old world craftsmanship. And our clients think so too.

Anthony Markley is not only talented, but conscientious about everything he does in landscaping. When he works with our clients, they quickly learn to trust his work and the process it takes to finish the job beautifully. Being skilled in in both Hardscaping and Greenscaping allows him to take jobs from inception to completion.
He says, “The best part about my job is when the customers come to trust us as we perform the needed phases of a job, and then to see their face as we completely transform their home into what they were hoping for. I really like the “before and after” effects of what we do.”

With 34 years of property maintenance, design and construction experience, Rich has a wide range of experience to serve our clients. He has overseen ground maintenance for large commercial properties as well as executive homes, where details, planning and service are at a premium. His high energy and desire to create beautiful gardens and landscapes is immediately recognized when talking with him.
He has worked on many different kinds of projects, but creating beautiful ponds and waterfalls, or completely renovating a property are the two things he likes best. But, he says, “I still think there is something about a perfect lawn with nicely edged and mulched gardens that is pleasing to the eye in its simplicity.”
Customer care, listening to clients desires and helping them achieve their vision is one of his strengths. His integrity and professionalism are the characteristics that most define who he is.
“I genuinely enjoy meeting people, walking their property with them and discussing both what is already present, and helping them see what is possible. But when talking with people about their landscaping or outdoor living spaces, you have to listen to what they are saying; and sometimes what they are not saying. This allows me to help them achieve what they really want, not just finish a job. And that is very important to me. The greatest part about my job, is that moment when a client realizes that I am interested in a long term relationship, that is built on integrity and trust. They are the ones who often thank me for enhancing the beauty and value of their homes. But what makes it special, is when they know that it was always my desire to provide professional and reliable service.”
He and his wife live in Lancaster, and have three children. He has done extensive missionary work in Africa, Central and South America and, after his family, considers that work his greatest achievement.
