While this blog is home to great information and advice on your lawn, we also like to share from time-to-time great news about our employees & company. Recently, Weed Pro's owner, Rob Palmer, was awarded a 2013 Lawn and Landscape Leadership Award by Lawn & Landscape Magazine.
The Lawn & Landscape Leadership Award
Each year, Lawn & Landscape Magazine honors several leaders in the green industry, based upon their commitment to the industry, their own organizations, and how they are viewed by fellow peers. According to Lawn & Landscape, "The professional lawn and landscape industry comprises tens of thousands of small businesses with entrepreneurs at the helm. The leaders of these firms strive to establish their businesses within their communities not only as offering quality services but also as reputable businesses who give back to the communities in which they work and live."
About Rob Palmer
More than just "the boss," Rob has built Weed Pro into a tightly knitted family over the past 13 years. In fact all of his original employees remain, with several current employees reaching 10 years of employment. "I never really think of them as employees," Palmer says. "We spend so much time together, and have gotten to know each other so well, we are family." Palmer not only has a strong family at work, but enjoys a great family at home with his wife Melissa, daughter Abigail, and sons Eli & Robert Jr.
Praise from His Employees
More important than being respected by others in the lawn care industry, Palmer is greatly respected and admired by his employees at Weed Pro. "Rob's not only a great person, but a caring leader that demonstrates his appreciation everyday," says Dawn Burt, Office Manager at Weed Pro Lawn Care. Burt goes on to say, "it's not often you have a boss you respect professionally, as well as care about personally."
