U.S. Lawns inducts 3 into Hall of Fame

The 2016 inductees of the U.S. Lawns Hall of Fame. 

U.S. Lawns inducted franchisee Chris Seaborne, franchisee Tim Harrell and President of U.S. Lawns Ken Hutcheson into its Hall of Fame.

Seaborne and Harrell started their Frederick, Md., franchise in March 1999 after connecting with a U.S. Lawns franchisee in their area. Both were about 20 years old and had been working for other companies—Chris trimming trees and Tim doing residential lawn work. The pair attended a U.S. Lawns Annual Conference before signing their franchisee agreement.

Seeking ways to build a bigger base, they purchased their second territory in Winchester, Va., in early 2015. They hired Austin Elliott to lead the charge in Winchester, equipped with a bachelor’s in environmental studies from Shepherd University. Within six months, they were happy with the income generated by the second branch, and it continues to grow.

U.S. Laws President Ken Hutcheson joined U.S. Lawns in 1995. He helped grow the company from a 18-franchise regional network to an industry leader with over 250 commercial landscape management franchises offering year-round grounds services nationwide. The company honored Hutcheson’s longevity and commitment over 30 years by inducting him into the U.S. Lawns Hall of Fame.

“I was proud to see Tim Harrell and Chris Seaborne inducted into the U.S. Lawns Hall of Fame,” said Ken Hutcheson. “Watching them over the years grow as individuals, grow their families, grow their team and grow their business has been inspiring to me and many others. They are a great example of what this industry, this country and U.S. Lawns offers people who are willing to commit to a dream and work diligently to turn that dream into reality.”

Hall of Fame members are individuals who exemplify the mission and vision of U.S. Lawns. This is the company’s most prestigious award.
