Our Origins - Meet Your Techs!
Over 25 years ago, John (owner of Grounds Services) decided to start his own business in a field he was familiar with, turf management. His goal was simple: be honest, be reliable, be fair, and treat your clients and employees right. Grounds Services was created with those missions in mind.
John first started off by digging holes, laying mulch and mowing lawns until he was able to focus the business on nutrient-based care and chemical applications for lawns, trees and shrubs. Those core values; honesty, reliability and fairness, have helped create a team oriented shop culture with the common goal of creating beautiful, healthy outdoor spaces for our customers.
We are a locally owned family business with our roots in Toledo. From our office staff to each technician, we want your lawn to looks it's best.
Providing top-notch fertilization and weed control services for residential and commercial properties for over 25 years! We service Toledo, Waterville, Maumee, Monclova, Sylvania, Perrysburg, Whitehouse, Temperance, Lambertville and spots in between!
