Our History


Nick Bahr got his start in the lawn care business at age 10. He began mowing a mere, dozen customers after school and has been involved in this industry for the last 25 years. The lawn care industry has changed immensely since then and Nick has made every effort to learn and keep up with the industry standards while expanding his business.

We established a Sioux Falls division in an effort to expand our business. All of our services are offered in the Sioux Falls area. In addition, Madison Lawn Care offers more services in the Sioux Falls area including: Shrub Maintenance, Minor Tree Pruning, Deep Root Fertilization for Trees & Shrubs,  and Insect and Disease Management for Trees & Shrubs.

The communities of Madison & Sioux Falls, as well as, the surrounding communities have been very supportive as we have evolved in this business. The two new Madison Lawn Care buildings are a nice addition to the progressive economic developments in the communities of Madison and Sioux Falls. They will be a benefit to our staff as well, we were in need of facilities to house our equipment and provide office space for this growing business.

Also, in support of local higher education, we hire students and graduates from surrounding schools. We maintain year-round full-time staff to ensure better customer service and avoid employee turn-over. Another aspect in this business that is important to us, is making sure that all of our staff members who apply any type of chemical control are properly trained and licensed by the State of South Dakota. It is extremely essential to be properly licensed and insured in this industry. MLC carries liability insurance and workman’s compensation insurance to benefit our customers; this alleviates the liability on the customer if there was an on the job accident.

Madison Lawn Care strives to exceed the industries standards and with dedication and support from our customers, we are expanding geographically by extending many of our services to reach residential, commercial and rural customers in Baltic, Brandon, Brookings, Chester, Colman, Colton, Crooks, Dell Rapids, Flandreau, Harrisburg, Hartford, Howard, Lyons, Madison, Renner, Salem, Sioux Falls, Tea and Wentworth!
