My name is Robert and I’m the founder of Eco Lawn Utah. I started working in the lawn care industry at age 14 in New Jersey. After a decade of work, I got tired of the sloppy environmental practices throughout the industry, and decided to start a company that would do things more responsibly. I looked around the country for a place where people were both well-informed and health-conscious, and decided the perfect place would be in Utah.
I started Eco Lawn in 2011, basing everything on my belief that a lawn’s ecosystem is more resilient when supported with a healthy balance of nutrients rather than being drenched with synthetic chemicals. Thanks to word-of-mouth promotion from our loyal clients, the growth of Eco Lawn has far exceeded my expectations. I’m loving it here in Utah and am excited to provide you with a healthy lawn and a safer neighborhood.
Eco Lawn is run by family and long-time family friends. We strive to have a great company culture that values our clients and our environment. An integral part of our company culture is the desire to give back to the world. In the past, we have supported clean water initiatives. Now that our small company has reached maturity, we are able to do so much more. This year, we have partnered with CharityVision to pay for eye surgeries in developing countries. As we continue to grow, we will fund a music program that teaches refugees and kids who struggle with depression and suicide. Each of Eco Lawn's charitable initiatives come from the passions of our team members. The potential to do good for the world gives us renewed enthusiasm every day.

Tim is a graduate of Utah Valley University. He loves studying public policy and discovering new music. Nothing bothers him more than when other companies blast the soil with cheap products, thereby killing the organisms in the soil. He believes that environmental protection begins on an individual level—we all share the responsibility of caring for our home.
Vision is the key to survival. Millions of people face abandonment, despair, and starvation because their blindness inhibits their ability to earn money. CharityVision brings new life to these people by providing 65,000 eye surgeries each year. After a fifteen-minute procedure, children see their families for the first time. They see themselves in the mirror. They absorb the colors and beauties of the earth. They see hope in the future. We couldn't think of a better gift to give than the gift of sight. That's why EcoLawn pays for one eye surgery for each new client. We invite you to get involved with this amazing project at http://charityvision.net/.
