Nicholas Bahr, President of Madison Lawn Care has been in the lawn care industry ever since he was old enough to push a lawn mower. He started out as an ambitious young man with a borrowed lawn mower. In return for using this mower on other properties, he mowed that person’s lawn for free. People saw him out mowing, approached him and he began to build a small customer list. His company kept growing all throughout high school as he added more services. His senior year he joined the South Dakota Army National Guard. After completing basic training and AIT, he enrolled at STI in Sioux Falls majoring in Business Administration. A year and a half into college, his Guard Unit was activated to be sent to Iraq and he was called to serve our country. He put school on hold and found help to take care of his lawn care & snow removal business. He was gone for over a year and a half. After returning home, he continued to expand his lawn care business and made the decision to join the Madison Volunteer Fire Department. He was an active member for 7 years. Nick also, finished his Business degree and starting forming a business plan. He had his own equipment and 50 customers. This fueled his desire to take the company to the next step. With hard work and by constantly educating himself, his business steadily grew. He met his wife Angie and together as a team they started to add more services, comprehensive customer service and full-time employees. They worked with DSU, SDSU and STI to hire driven college students. Several of these students graduated and commented to them: “You both have met every goal that you have set for this company and kept the promises that you have made to us and we want to help expand and make this our career.” Nick and Angie feel very fortunate to have great people support them and work with them. Together this motivated team made the decision to expand into Sioux Falls. The surrounding communities have been very supportive and our company appreciates the opportunity to serve the residents and companies in Eastern SD. Our dedicated team of professionals has made Madison Lawn Care one of the premier lawn care companies in South Dakota.
