"As a child, I would follow behind my father with my Fisher Price toy mower as he would cut our yard. Back then I would have paid someone to let me cut their lawn! Although I can't get away with that today, my feelings haven't changed. I still have the same excitement, love, and enthusiasm for lawn care & landscaping as I did when I was a boy."
Based off my lifetime love for the outdoors & lawn care, I started Home Pride when I was 16 years old. Things weren't always easy, and I definitely learned my fair share along the way. Starting so early was a true blessing to me, as I was able to learn the ropes, identify what worked and what didn't, and how to interact with customers & employees. It was during these years that I was able to learn what really drives success, and implement it into every fabric of what our company stands for today...OUR CUSTOMER. Home Pride is truly built on the concept of putting our customers first, meeting their every need, and providing them with unsurpassable quality, service, and value.
I sincerely love what I do, and I hope that you will give myself and our company, the opportunity to prove it.
Brad Kettler, Owner/Lead Foreman
Wes and I have been friends and neighbors since the 4th grade. When he originally recruited me to help him get Home Pride off the ground in 2002, I originally thought I'd be doing it as a favor. Little did I know, I would begin to develop a sincere fondness for it, and today I'm in the business because I truly love it!
"Friends or those who know me might describe me as having more than an obsession with detail. I was raised by a father who didn't accept anything less than perfect. Although chores took 3 times longer than the other kids on the block, it prepared me perfectly for what I am doing now...using that same precision and obsession to detail that has been instilled in me since youth, on your property and any service that we put our name on."
