For fun, Pat Russell took over the family lawn mowing task. Once his neighbors took notice, the company was literally created from the ground up. By the age of 11 — and armed with an Ariens® ride on tractor, a handheld Homelite® blower and a Craftsman® weed whacker — Pat regularly serviced 3 to 5 customers. By his senior year of high school, Pat was servicing 25-30 weekly customers with the help of two employees, one truck and a trailer. While Pat kept his commitment to Westford Academy football, his dad stepped in as an employee to help keep the business running. Honoring his mother’s wishes for a college education, Pat earned an Associates of Science in Landscape Contracting, graduating in 2005. Post college, Pat has expanded the business to include commercial services and major landscape construction projects. Since the company’s 1996 inception, business has doubled year over year.
