Meet Ricky Smith



Why did you decide to work for Fairway Lawns?

Originally, like most people, I was looking for a steady job with good pay. I enjoyed working outside and had previous route experience. Fairway Lawns was already servicing a family member’s lawn, and after seeing their work I decided to apply.


What do you enjoy most about your job at Fairway Lawns?

There are a lot of things I enjoy about my job. Taking pride in my customers lawns is high on the list, but I would also have to say working here feels like we are all one big family.


What’s the most common mistake you see people make when trying to take care of their lawn treatment themselves?

I think the biggest mistake I see customers make is not educating themselves on what they are doing to their lawn. Mostly using the wrong product for their problem, or applying the wrong products at the wrong time of year. Things like that can really do some damage or not provide the desired results.


What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

In my free time, I like attending local car shows and working on my own custom vehicles. Also, with my recent move to Columbia, I enjoy exploring the many great places this city has to offer.
