Josh Fromme | Owner

 

 

Josh graduated from Illinois State University in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture Business. After graduation he was determined to give the residents of Bloomington, IL and Peoria, IL a professional, caring, and locally owned lawn care company.  Starting off with zero customers, one truck, and himself as the only employee, Josh began providing professional, customer service based lawn care with one motto guiding him every minute of every day, “Promises Kept”.  With hard work and dedication, he expanded the company to what it is today. He received the 2017 Pantagraph Readers’ Choice Award for ‘Best Lawn Care Service’ for the Bloomington, IL location.  Outside of work Josh enjoys spending time with his wife Beth, and their three children Emma, Reagan, and William.  He is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan, and can often be found barbequing something delicious in his backyard.
