Meet The Team: Owner Ryan Shiplett
While attending Schoolcraft College, Ryan was undecided with the direction of his professional future. In late 2000 he had an opportunity to buy a local lawn maintenance company. After a few days of negotiating, RS Lawn Care was established in early 2001. Since 2001 Ryan has made RS Lawn Care grow from 30 clients, to over 300 clients, making RS one of the most recognizable and respected brands in the local area. Over the years, Ryan and Andrew have maintained a close relationship. Andrew actually helped Ryan get certified/licensed in Turf and Pesticide Management. One night around 11:00 pm Ryan called Andrew to see if he would be interested in starting a fertilizing company. Within 12 hours Andrew was in and soon after My Fertilizing Company was established.
On August 20th 2016, surrounded by loved ones, Ryan married the love of his life Mina in Akumal Mexico. They have 2 children together… Two boys named Evan and Dylan… And a little girl named Olive (aka pitty), who is a certified therapy dog.
