Doing Business Since: 04-2000
Before starting his landscaping company, Manuel Nava worked in a bakery for 12 years. He always knew that he wanted to start his own business. So in 2000, Manual started Manny's Lawn care. Manny's Lawn Care now has 3 full time employees and services over 80 customers. "We are actually looking for more employees because our business has grown so much over the past year," Nava laughs. Manny and his crew also service several commercial properties around the St. Louis area including various strip malls and gas stations.
Originally from Mexico, Manuel has lived in St. Louis for over 20 years now and loves the area. "St Louis and its people have welcomed my family and we love being able to service all of our customers," Nava says. "We will never leave the area and I look forward to growing old here."
Manny's Lawn Care services the Great St. Louis area including Ladue, Clayton, Brentwood, Maplewood, Olivette, Ballwin, Maryland Heights, Kirkwood, Webster Groves, and Creve Coeur. Manual and his crew also travel as far east to perform lawn care in Chesterfield, MO. They also provide lawn care and landscaping in Belleville, Illinois.
We asked about his success, Manuel attributes his drive to keep his customers happy as his reason. "For bigger companies, quantity is a must but for us we take our time on each and every lawn," Manuel explains. "We make sure that everything has been completed and done properly before we leave. Things like making sure that grass is not on the sidewalks or the driveway is something we take pride in. Everything is in the details and we want to make sure that we get everything right for the customer."
Manuel and his crew can also handle multiple things around your home too. They also do mulching, aeration, over seeding, gutter cleaning, pressure washing, sodding, bush and shrub pruning, low level tree trimming, leaf removal, and snow removal.
While growing up in Mexico, Manuel always loved to be in the garden. He would always volunteer to work in the gardens of his friends and family and loved making things look pretty. "I was always intrigued by horticulture so owning my own landscaping business just fit," Nava says. "I get to do the things I love every day."
When Manuel is not working he loves to spend time with this family. They enjoy cooking together and playing soccer together. Manuel and his wife have three sons and his brother lives in St. Louis as well. His parent still live in Mexico but they are able to come and visit 2 times per year. Manual and his family are also members of the St. Cecilia Church in St. Louis.
When your landscaping project is too much to handle or you are just wanting to relax this weekend, let Manuel and his team tackle all of your outdoor projects.
