DREAM BIG, JOE! One of the coolest things about my job is traveling around Northeast Ohio and meeting interesting people... like Joe. I was heading to an appointment in Lisbon when I noticed a young man pulling a lawn mower behind the bike he was riding. Being that it is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, and in my case, Spring, I kept driving for a mile or so until my curiosity about this kid riding a bike with a lawn mower in tow prompted me to slow down, turn around, and meet him. By the time I caught up to him, he was fueling up his mower at the gas station. I approached him and introduced myself (which meant nothing to him at first). As we began talking, I learned that his name is Joe – a 13 year-old who loves working outside, mowing yards, and making money. He proudly told me the name of his company, Joe’s Lawn Care. Wow! Those who know me, or are familiar with my humble beginnings, can appreciate how Joe reminds me of when I started Todd’s Lawn Care at the age of 14. I shared my story with Joe - from the start of my career at 14 years-old with one push mower – to today, President and Founder of Enviroscapes of Ohio with 6 locations, more than 100 vehicles, and 225 (and growing) talented team members. The idea of these possibilities impressed Joe but didn’t deter his focus or the task at hand for long. He had 4 yards to mow before dark! We exchanged a few more words, I encouraged him to DREAM BIG, we shook hands, then we both went back to work. What an inspiration! The fact that this 13 year-old, ambitious young man is living the American Dream in Lisbon, Ohio truly inspires me. GO GET ‘EM, JOE’S LAWN CARE!!

Thanks Todd for taking the time to stop and encourage Joe. I know him personally and he is a great kid. Always willing to help out when things need done. He comes from a great family and takes after his hard working dad. God bless you for stopping during your busy day!

Great story Todd! I remember the “Todd’s Lawn Care” vehicle in the High School parking lot as well as you sharpening all the mower blades (at that time) in our small engines class. Great job my friend!!

What is the best way to motivate a team of landscape pros? Feed them. Our Designers and Landscape Managers took advantage of a rainy Monday to feed our landscape team. It was nice to spend some time together and catch up. We are so blessed to have such great team members at Enviroscapes! ... See MoreSee Less
