LawnCare Plus Founder and Owner Mark Griesbach graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a bachelor’s in business. Growing up in Madison, Mark remembers always loving the outdoors. “During the summer, I would love picking up the push lawn mower and cutting the neighbors’ lawns,” he says. “I was always trying to improve the way outdoor spaces looked. Still today the satisfaction is overwhelming for me.”
In 1998, Mark set out on his own to found LawnCare Plus. “It seems like yesterday,” he says. “I had the drive and determination to strive for complete customer satisfaction and make the company what it is today.” Being the only employee at the time, Mark recalls long hours and hard work. “I saw things progress quickly in the first 3-5 years,” he says. That’s when he decided it was time to buy more equipment and grow his team.
In November 2015, Mark relocated the company to Black Earth, Wisconsin. “We were looking for a place outside the city limits where we could have the shop on the same property as my house,” he says. Mark lives in Black Earth with his wife, Cindy, and their three children.
Today, LawnCare Plus has a team of four and customers across Dane County. Services have grown from mowing, aerating and dethatching to include tree work, fertilizing, landscaping, and snow removal. “I’m trying to give my customers the complete package,” Mark says. “Most importantly, if you are my customer I want to make sure we service you for all of your outdoor needs.”
Some of LawnCare Plus’s customers have become friends and even like family. Mark feels strongly about developing a personal rapport and ensuring each customer feels appreciated. “I’ve picked up groceries for an elderly woman whose been a customer for 15 years,” he says. “It’s about developing relationships so no one feels like a number.”
