ABOUT GREEN MEADOW
A Young Man’s Passion to Succeed
Raised as a 5th generation farmer in Ellington, Nate Bahler knew from a very young age the value of hard work, being honest and keeping commitments. He started a car detailing business and fence installation company in High School, then in 2007 with his cousin Tom Gerber, founded Green Meadow Lawncare.
In 2015, Nate’s cousin Tom left the business to pursue a career in Engineering and sold half of his shares to his brother Brian Gerber and the other half to Nate. With an emphasis on customer service first, Nate and Brian have grown Green Meadow from 219 customers in 2015 to 834 customers in 4 short years.
Nate and Brian with a great deal of thought would then hire key personal to support and grow their vision of Green Meadow. In 2016, they hired their first Lawn Specialist, a 19-year industry veteran, Matt Middleton. In 2018, they hired Customer Service Manager, Dave Schwarm. He is a 28-year industry veteran brought on to grow the company’s customer base and reputation for superior customer service.
