I had started Lawn and Beyond only 4 years ago after working in the field for 5 years prior. Unlike most people, I will say this has been the most difficult, yet best thing I could have done. I started with no capital, no loans, right from the bottom with a mower, truck, broom, and desire to better serve the Saint Louis community. When I left my job I was in the financial crisis of my life. I was jobless, in debt over my head from college, and living in the cheapest place for rent I could find; a garage I rented for $40 a month. Staying with me was my girlfriend, who is now my wife, that went out with me to go hand out flyers to everyone and everywhere. With not much more to lose than my sanity, I knew I had to give it my all if I was going to get this business off the ground. With much perseverance, dedication, and motivation, after my 3rd year, I can finally say Lawn and Beyond is here to stay! I have reinvested every dollar earned to continue to grow and better serve our clients. This is my story in a nutshell; an idea from a nobody, "me," that has nothing, can blossom and grow to produce beautiful fruit by never giving up. As we continue to grow, I can promise to you we will give the same great service, keep the same great relationships, and always be seeking the best ways to take care of you!
