Jeff’s Lawn Care celebrates 20 years of success
Owner Jeff Ronhaar and his staff celebrated the company’s 20th anniversary in June.
The employees at Jeff’s Lawn Care in Binbrook have such high regard for company owner Jeff Ronhaar that they wanted to surprise him by celebrating the 20th anniversary of his company.

“Jeff is low-key when it comes to centering himself, so we did it for him,” says Melanie Morris, Jeff’s Lawn Care’s office administrator. “He deserves a pat on the back once in a while.”

Jeff’s Lawn Care was started by Ronhaar at the age of 21. After completing a small business management course at Mohawk College in Hamilton, and continuing to work three other part-time jobs, the company was officially formed in June 1994. The original client base included family, friends and homeowners from the newspaper routes where Ronhaar delivered the Hamilton Spectator while in school. Many of these people remain loyal clients to this day.

Now the company has 25 trucks and a Smart car, with 60 employees. Jeff’s Lawn Care maintains lawns and gardens, and provides fertilizing, weed control, landscape consultation, design work, landscape construction and snow and ice maintenance.

Many awards have come to Jeff’s Lawn Care over the years.  As well, the company donates grass and garden services to five distinct areas in Ronhaar’s home town of Caledonia, including the Royal Canadian Legion.
Ronhaar also collects food at every Canada Day parade for the Caledonia and District Food Bank.
