Your Professional Lawn Care Team

Steve Moll, Owner/OperatorSteveM owner

Steve has always been a steward of our environment, with interest in sustainability, environmental stewardship, and climate change.  In 2008, he became a pioneer in sustainable lawn care as one of the 1st owners in the country of a Clean Air Lawn Care franchise. In a leadership role within the company on a national level he trains new franchise owners in sustainable lawn care equipment use and organic treatments. Steve is part of a team of owners, along with Colorado State University soil scientists, that formulated the Clean Air Lawn Care Organic Granular Fertilizer and soon to be released Biological Tea. He also designed the Solar Sprayer used for treatment work-now a company model adopted by all franchisees.

Steve’s employees in Colorado Springs are some of the best trained in the country due to Steve’s commitment to their continued growth in the industry working with organic and environmentally friendly products. He continuously strives to make improvements to services and adopt cutting edge technologies because the health and safety of people, pets and our planet is critically important to me.

Steve has been a resident of Manitou Springs since 2005. He enjoys beekeeping, hiking, skiing, disc golf and getting out in the Colorado mountains as often as possible with his wife Robyn and Hank the dog.
