I'm just your average lawn enthusiast that loves to work in the lawn and garden. I have a wonderful wife and 4 amazing kids. They all enjoy getting outside and working in the lawn and garden, too.
My first adventure into lawn care was over 30 years ago at the young age of 14. My older brother started a lawn service and I helped him every weekend. I basically ran a Stihl trimmer while he rode the mower. Ha! When I graduated high school, my brother had quit his lawn service so I started my own. I worked it for 5 years and paid my way through college. The freedom it brought was exhilarating! I worked one day a week and had enough for college tuition and all my expenses. Yes, tuition was much cheaper in the early 90s.
After college graduation I traded in my lawn service for a desk job. Flash forward a couple decades, marriage, kids, and life has finally slowed down enough to enjoy my passion. A couple of years ago I purchased my first reel mower and have thoroughly enjoyed the adventure.
