After five years in business, Grant and Joe Sappy, co-founders and owners of K/W Lawn Care, are still trying to figure out who is the company’s president and who is the CEO. But the pair agrees on the company’s mission: to make their clients’ landscaping visions a reality. Drawing on the expertise of trained horticulturists, the Sappys help clients select the best plants and trees to meet their goals, and then install them using state-of-the-art equipment. In addition to cultivating relationships with architects and horticulturists, the Sappys partner with local providers to minimize the cost of materials such as mulch, fertilizer, or garden-gnome repellent. K/W Lawn Care maintains existing yards with services such as planting, weed control, and lawn cutting and fertilization as well as snow removal and holiday-lighting installations.
