Hard-luck Texas family wins lawn care franchise

Wesley Neukam and his family in Corpus Christi, TX, are getting a fresh start in rebuilding their lives after winning a lawn care franchise from Clean Air Lawn Care. Neukam won:

o A Clean Air Lawn Care franchise, along with ongoing support, valued at $35,000.
o Lawn equipment donated by Black & Decker, valued at $1,000.
o Patagonia Clean Air Clothing, valued at - $200.

The Ft. Collins, CO-based, lawn care company launched the contest this past October with applications submitted online. Four finalists were eventually selected and invited to post online broadcasts to be voted on by the public through December.

"There are many hard-working Americans who are currently recovering from unexpected events. We are happy to do our part by giving a chance to someone who has the skills, passion and determination to be successful, but who may not have the means," said Kelly Giard, founder and CEO of Clean Air Lawn Care, whose company and franchisees use electric mowing equipment and offer organic lawn care. Currently it numbers 27 territories across the United States.

This past year was a tough year for Neukam and his family. We wish them a much better 2011. To hear his story and watch his winning video, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqQTyBvpg7g.

I like your idea of having contest for the best lawn care specialist, one way of challenging them to be a good one. A way to prove their craftsmanship in maintaining lawns.

Hi! This is a good read. You have such an interesting and informative page. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about lawn maintenance in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about lawn maintenance. Keep it up!
Aeration with a spike aerator or plug/core aerator (to relieve compaction of the soil and allow greater absorption of nutrients) is one of the special maintenance procedures required in maintaining high visibility lawns.
Whether you know it or not, everyone’s grass is a little different. Grass can even vary from one neighbor to the next, depending on if the grass is indigenous, if it has been resodded with a different type in the past, or any other number of factors. We base our care on your individual lawn and its needs. Is your lawn in a mostly sunny and dry area? Is it low lying and moist? The conditions will affect the type of lawn care that is recommended and we’ll be able to assess what lawn maintenance is needed during our consultation.
