Doing Business Since: 01/2000
Don Brindle has been in the lawn mowing industry since the year 2000. Having been in corporate America for most of his working life, he felt the need to do something different. A chance encounter with a friend who recommend him to buy an aerator, Don made the purchase and started aerating all the yards he could. In the process of aerating, he would get requests from his customers to mow their lawn as well. So Don capitalized on this opportunity and started offering mowing as a service and Aeration Station was started.
Originally from Cordova, Alaska, Don moved to Concord, North Carolina in 1997. "My family left Alaska and came to Concord on a whim," Brindle says. "I found work as a pastor and have been here ever since."
Aeration Station services most Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties including mowing grass in Concord, NC, Concord Mills, Harrisburg, Mt. Pleasant, Midland, Huntersville, Highland Creek, Locust, and go north and mow lawns in Kannapolis, North Carolina.
Don and his crew have grown to over their customer base to over 80 residential properties and also service a few commercial properties including Clear Creek Rehabilitation Center in Mint Hill and some All About Storage locations.
When we asked Don what has led to his company's growth, Don exclaimed, "We are honest with all of our customers." He goes on to explain, "If a customer asks us for any tips for their lawn, we will tell them how, when, and why to do it. We work for the best strategic outcome for our customers….even if it means that we don't get to perform the business. We want our customers to be happy in the end."
Aeration Station will certainly handle your aerating and mowing needs but also do over seeding, mulch, sod, planting, clean out flower beds, hardscapes, cleanups, pine needle placement, rock work, shrub and bush trimming, low level tree trimming, leaf removal, pest control, tree banding, split rail fence construction and repair, and will do your irrigation repairs.
Brindle loves the smell of onions and fresh cut grass. "I love seeing the lines in a freshly cut lawn," Brindle says. "Landscaping allows me to move around and see different things. That is why I love what I do."
When Don has any spare time, he loves spending time with his wife and son. He is also enjoys watching the TV show Gunsmoke. You can also find him fishing in Myrtle Beach or fishing in Kings Mountain.
Don loves to take his family to Olive Garden and also frequents Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steak Burgers on Pit Stop Ct in Concord, NC.
