This Pro Story
As a young boy, Richard always admired his grandfather's work ethic. He was Richard's mentor and taught him so many of life's valuable lessons. At the time, Richard's grandfather had one of the largest landscaping companies in Belleville, Illinois, Buckner Lawn Care. When Richard was contemplating his next move, he decided to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and Buckner Lawn Care was reborn. Buckner Lawn Care is now a family owned and operated business.
Before settling back in Belleville, he lived in Cahokia, Il. For 7 years now, he has called Belleville home and now services over 50 residential properties. Richard and his crew are currently looking to expand their residential footprint and are looking to take on some commercial properties as well.
Buckner and his family crew cuts lawns in Belleville, St. Louis, Westview, Centreville, Cahokia, Fairview Heights, Crestwood, Clayton, Kirkwood, & Fenton. They even go east and handle lawn maintenance in Ballwin, Missouri.
One of his grandfather's teachings was paying attention to detail. Richard says that this is something that he has never forgotten and it shows in his work. "Every customer I have, I try to envision anything I could to make the property look better," Buckner says. "I will walk around after every service and make sure that we didn’t miss anything or have the opportunity to improve the appearance of the property. We pride ourselves on our neatness and cleanliness of every job."
Buckner Lawn Care is not only limited to regular lawn service but also handles gutter work, landscaping design, mulching, sodding, dry wall, sprinkler installation, aeration, edging, power washing, leaf cleans ups, fertilization, grass treatment, and much more.
Richards love for carrying on the family name and tradition are certainly motivation for starting his business. "I love being outside and I love the satisfaction of seeing a lawn that looks better because of me," Richard explains. "We want the Buckner name to be associated with great work because that is the only way my grandfather would have wanted it."
When Richard has some extra time, he loves to spend it with his family. "We all work together so we all play together as well," Buckner laughs. "We are a true tight-knit family run business."
Richard also loves Chinese buffets and loves to partake in those when he gets a chance to visit Cahokia.
