Doing Business Since: 05/15
Matt Bush started Bush and Shrubs Lawnscaping in May of 2015 but is no stranger to the industry having over 30 years of mowing experience under his belt.
"I previously worked for a large commercial landscaping company in Florida and when I decided to move my family to Tennessee, I knew that starting a landscaping company is exactly what I was gonna do," Bush explains.
Being a serial entrepreneur, Matt has had his own real estate company, medical billing service company, and also Manufactured parts and accessories for Jeeps and Land Rovers.
"We basically started mowing houses for real estate agents as a way to make additional money but it just started growing way too fast," Matt laughs. "We knew we were onto something."
The Pensacola native has lived in the Tennessee area for over a year now and has several recurring residential customers and 1 large commercial account.
Matt and his crew service from Dickson, Tn on Interstate 40 all the way to West Nashville and will even go into the outer banks of Franklin, TN up to Charlotte Pike. "We have customers all over Dickson, Pegram, Kingston Springs, Fairview, White Bluff, and Franklin, Tennessee," Matt explains.
Other than your regular lawn maintenance, Bush & Shrubs will also do your Fall leaf removal, low level tree trimming, mulching, and bush hedging and trimming.
His family owned business has the motto: Treat everyone's lawn likes it's our own and we will not leave until it looks like it's supposed to look. Bush goes on to explain, "We will tell all of our customers when we are coming, when we have to reschedule, and we will also mow on Sundays if we have to."
Matt has also been known to lend out his pressure washer if any of his clients need it. Talk about customer service!!
When Matt is not out mowing, the father of 4 loves to go camping, off-roading in Utah or Colorado, and also loves dabbling in hot rodding. He is currently restoring a 1969 F100.
When your lawn is needing a little extra love or you are wanting to talk about what's under the hood of his Ford, give Matt and his wife Kelly a call and let them handle all of your lawn care needs.
How many years have you been in landscaping business, and what inspired you to get started?
This is our 3rd season in business as of March 2017. We originally started the mowing/landscaping business to help with the medical bills of our youngest child...we continued the business because I (Kelley) love seeing the beautiful work that can be created through sweat and strength. Mowing a beautiful lawn is like art, the more precise the mow, the more pleasure is obtained by the home owner to look at it each day!
How does your work stand out from other lawn service companies in the area?
My work stands out because I treat each lawn as if it were my own. I want people to drive down your street and wonder who keeps it looking so nice. I want people to wish their lawn looked as good as yours.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Look for someone that is reliable, honest to a fault, and desires to have the satisfaction of a job well done. The person should enjoy the work the majority of the time, otherwise they will just brush it off as just another lawn.
What do you like most about the lawn care industry?
The best part of this industry is being able to be outside and working with homeowners to enjoy their lawns.
What areas do you mainly service?
I mainly service West Nashville, Bellevue, Fairview, Franklin, Belle Meade, Old Hickory, and Dickson, Tennessee.
