History

Why are we the best in Fort Worth?

home_teamMean Green Lawn and Landscape, LLC is a full service in-house lawn and landscape company. It was founded by twin brothers Michael and Robert Whittaker in 2003. Their experience in the landscape industry began in high school in their hometown of Austin, Texas. They parted ways upon graduation to begin their college educations.  Michael is a graduate of Texas Christian University’s Neeley School of Business in Fort Worth, Texas. Robert is a graduate of Texas Tech University’s Rawls College of Business in Lubbock, Texas.

While in Lubbock, Robert started a new landscape company named Paradise Lawn and Landscape. When Robert took on another business venture, Michael established Dallas-Fort Worth based Mean Green Lawn Care. Michael was able to successfully grow Mean Green using his previous experience in the industry and his business education. His focus began in residential services for homeowners, and then expanded to commercial properties for multi-family housing and energy companies. Michael has developed a deep understanding of landscape installation, turf and grass maintenance and tree care, especially for plant life in the DFW area.

In 2011, Robert sold his company, Paradise Lawn and Landscape, and moved to Fort Worth to join Michael at Mean Green. Robert specializes in business operations. Robert is also licensed by the state of Texas to perform commercial and residential irrigation system installation and repairs.

Mean Green Lawn and Landscape is proud to employ a team of highly trained professionals, many of whom carry licenses and certifications to ensure the highest level of quality service.  In the field, you will always see the Crew Leaders and their teams in uniform. Mean Green is pleased to keep its full team on staff year-round.

When Michael and Robert are not working they coach and sponsor Fort Worth Youth Soccer Association’s “Mean Green” boys’ soccer team.

In June of 2013 Mean Green added another partner Ryan Bourdon to the team.  He has extensive knowledge in landscape lighting, Christmas lighting and property maintenance.. He shares the same values as both Michael and Robert. With three partners every project is owner supervised and you will always feel a personal connection when working with Mean Green.
