Andy started mowing lawns in 1998, at the age of 12, with a push mower and a handful of customers. While in high school, he continued mowing and gained experience by attending Hillyard Technical Center in St. Joseph, Missouri. At HTC he took classes in landscape design, horticulture, and greenhouse management. Using this education and his experience he was able to develop a substantial client base in St. Joseph.
After High School Andy made the decision to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a firefighter and entered the fire academy. In 2006, Andy graduated fire academy and accepted a full time firefighter position with the City of Kirksville. He gave up his lawn care business and relocated to Kirksville. After adjusting to the 24 hour on, 48 hour off schedule of firefighting, Andy realized that schedule gave him the opportunity to pursue his other passion, lawn care, on his days off.
He established Andys Lawn & Landscape in 2007, and seven years later, transitioned back to lawn and landscape work full time. Today Andy's Lawn & Landscape services commercial and residential clients year round. From a one-time $25 mowing job to a $25,000+ complete, four season commercial maintenance package, we can help you out. Let Andy use his experience in turf management, plant maintenance, tree care, and hardscapes to make your outdoor space look its best.
