Our Company: SecureLawn, LLC is a locally owned lawn application company that is committed to providing Middle Tennessee residents with the highest quality products and services. Mark Lovinski, President and Owner, founded SecureLawn in 2003. Mark graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 1992 and received his Masters degree in Environmental Management from West Virginia University.
We began our operations as a division of a large agricultural chemical and seed company that provides services for farmers in the Mid-South area. We took our knowledge and expertise that we had gained in the farming community and began to focus on the home and business owners of Middle Tennessee.
Our experiences have indicated that our exemplary customer service is what sets us apart in our industry. Our customers expect a fair price accompanied with a great service. Simply stated, that’s what we provide. Quality and timely customer service is our primary focus at SecureLawn.
Our People: All of our applicators are professionally certified by the Department of Tennessee Agriculture. Since we are not a franchise, we empower each applicator with the flexibility to customize a plan to meet the specific needs of your lawn. Our professional applicators are incentivized in customer retention, not new business.
SecureLawn makes the whole process easy too, with online payment options, discounts, and pay-as-you-go programs. We are confident we have a program that will satisfy your needs.
