Kevin Martin, CEO of Athens Lawn & Gardening, attended the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Controlling Workers’ Compensation costs course, held at the Division of Safety and Hygiene training center in Pickerington, Ohio March 6, 2013. The NWC workshop is to learn how the Ohio Workers’ Compensation system works and to determine rates and the costs that drive them.
Announcing another division of Athens Lawn & Gardening
Over the last 29 years, our company has grown non-stop, even through two very serious downturns in the economy. We operate with the principle of a very lean business plan, allowing our family-owned business to thrive and grow. Athens Mowing, along with Athens Snow Plowing, allows the company to keep our professional staff employed year around, which is to the advantage of many customers.
Athens Lawn & Gardening will expand our Athens Mowing division as a much larger part of the overall business model in 2013. The mowing division is expanding into commercial as well as residential mowing and turf maintenance. Chris Sharp, our mowing foreman, has done a superior job in customer retention, mowing ability and property maintenance. Our rates are very fair and our quality is unsurpassed. Please call for details over the winter months for a consultation and free estimates.
We are both professionals coming down from the Columbus area and our lawns at childhood through college life were about as big as a postage stamp. Neither of us has a clue about how to take care of our home in Athens. Oh my God, I’m even embarrassed to have visitors. We did an internet search for a landscape company to come take a look at our lawn, which was more weed and brush. I found Athens Lawn & Gardening’s website very informative, so I called their office. Within minutes, I was speaking to Kevin Martin, owner of the business.
During our initial telephone conversation, Kevin assured me he would be right out to take a look at our property. He came on time and was funny, delightful and very informative. I had no clue what I wanted, but he did. My property went from a jungled-up mess, with overgrown plants and bushes, to old lumber and well, I’m embarrassed to say more. After 2 days of the most unbelievable hard work by his staff, our property looks brand new. I was flabbergasted!
The June 29 storm and another a couple days later really did a number on southeast Ohio (and in other states, such as West Virginia). Many trees fell or broke off major limbs, downing power, phone and cable lines and damaging property. Athens Lawn & Gardening was ready to go to work and we had several projects to keep us busy. We remove trees, damaged limbs, clean broken limbs and debris from yards, housing and buildings.
