Stake Your Claim
Of the roughly 50 million acres of grass in the U.S., an estimated 21 million of those acres are private lawns. That’s a LOT of green space! It doesn’t matter what part of the country, or what type of climate, there is always a need for residential and commercial grounds care services, whether it’s lawn maintenance and landscaping or snow removal and holiday lighting.
