Matthew Fulks, Founder
Matthew Fulks’ passion for lawn care developed through working with his Aunt and Grandpa from the ages of ten to fifteen. At fifteen, Matthew and a partner started a lawn mowing company out of the back of a 1995 Nissan Maxima. At sixteen, Matthew bought out the company from his partner and began expanding.
By twenty-one he was a captain on the local fire department while at the same time growing his lawn care company. With the company growing rapidly he had to make a choice on which path to take in life. He chose lawn care and has never looked back, instead focusing on building a successful company.
Over the past eleven years, Matthew along with the ceaseless dedication and hard work of ten full time and two part time employees has grown Fulks Lawn & Landscape LLC into a comprehensive lawn and landscape company.
“My goal is to develop our employees and raise them up so they feel and experience the value that they provide to society with their hard work and dedication. I want them to have a future and be able to provide well for themselves, and most of all for their families. I want them to be able to reach their own dreams. By educating each other and working hard toward future goals this goal will and has begun to flourish. By working toward this it has created a great level of care for our customers at the same time. I tend to work a lot…these guys and girls have truly become my family.”
