This Pro Story
When Jarod received a non-running car for his 16th birthday, he needed to find a way to make money. He had been doing odds jobs for his aunt and she asked him to mow the yard one day. Her neighbor saw him mowing and then asked him to mow hers as well. At that moment in 2012, Bull Dog Lawn and Landscaping was born.
Originally from Buffalo, New York, Jarod and his family moved to Deland, Florida 5 years. "Coming from the cold winters in Buffalo, I was super excited to move to a warmer climate. I heard nothing but good things about the Deland area and it has not disappointed," Kolmetz says.
Bull Dog Lawn has grown to servicing 75 homeowners per week and just added some commercial properties in Orlando.
Not only will Bull Dog Lawn & Landscaping handle your regular landscaping needs, they will also handle low level tree work, cleanups, check sprinkler systems, leaf removal, mulching, sodding, aeration, shrub and bush trimming, and build your patio or deck.
When asked what has helped him grow his business so quickly, Jarod relied "We want to be the easiest company to work with." He goes on to add, "We send our customers newsletters or upcoming services they may need, we send text messages when we are on our way, and we get to know all of our customers on a first name basis, " Kolmetz says. "Our crew will make sure that the customer is always getting what they want."
What brought and is keeping Jarod in this industry is his love for the work. "Growing up, I always loved riding on tractors and being outside. Tractor is a little different now, but I get to do that every day and I still enjoy it," Jarod laughs.
Extreme sports are another one of Jarod's passions. He enjoys snowboarding, playing football, riding ATV's, and going mudding.
He also loves spending time with his family who all live in the Deland, FL area as well.
When he is hungry, you can find him at LaSpada's Original Cheesecakes & Hoagies off of Volusia Ave.
Jarod graduated from Deland High School and is currently pursuing a Finance and Marketing degree with a minor in Entrepreneurship at Stetson University.
