About Us

In the Community

We live, work, and invest ourselves in the local community because we are passionately committed to making the Heights area its beautiful best. Lawn Lad is rooted in Heights community – we’ve been renovating and rejuvenating neighbor’s yards for 30 years. We have been working with homeowners, local groups and organizations for years. The residents of the Heights-area have been very good to us over the years, we value the relationships we have built and believe that we should continue to invest ourselves in the community that has invested in us.

Nature Center at Shaker Lakes

Owner Douglas Freer was elected to the Board of Directors for the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes in the fall of 2008. As a young boy Doug spent many hours wandering the trails at the Nature Center discovering all that it had to offer. Doug has reconnected with a favorite childhood spot by joining the board and assisting on the Plant Sale and Development Committees.

Project Evergreen - Green Care for the Troops

Lawn Lad, Inc. has volunteered to provide necessary lawn care and maintenance servcies for the local families of our military who are stationed in the Middle East. We are grateful for the sacrifices our troops make to protect our freedom and we recognize that the families of those troops face challenges with loved ones away from home. It is our hope that we can minimize some small portion of the burden of having family members away from home.

If you have a family member deployed in the Middle East and need assistance with your yard, you may get additional information about how to receive assistance here
