The Green Lawn Fertilizing Team

Green Lawn Fertilizing is the largest locally owned and operated lawn and tree care company servicing the PA, NJ and DE tristate region.

President and owner, Matt Jesson, has been an entrepreneur since the age of 9, when he started his own neighborhood lawn cutting business in Havertown, PA. He ran that business all the way through his early twenties until he transitioned from landscaping to lawn care with the founding of Green Lawn Fertilizing in 2004.

Since that time Green Lawn Fertilizing has grown to over 25,000 local customers who love their greener, thicker and healthier lawns. The company has received several accolades for how fast it has grown including the Philadelphia 100, The Philadelphia Business Journal’s Soaring 76 and the INC. 5000.

Green Lawn Fertilizing has been able to grow at an accelerated rate by living its mission every single day: to be the leader in the lawn and pest industry by providing a superior customer experience.

Also core to the company’s mission is hiring and developing the very best team members. Matt Jesson has always believed that when you build a culture around treating your team exceptionally well they in turn will provide exceptional service to the customer.

Green Lawn Fertilizing also offers pest and termite control services through its award winning pest division, Green Pest Solutions.

Since hiring GL and cutting my grass at 3.5-4 inches I have seen a significant improvement. I do not have an irragation system, water when needed etc. I pre pay for the entire season and use their aerate/seed service.
