Meet the Owner
My name is Kyle Davis, owner and operator of Edward’s Lawn & Home. Born and raised in Catonsville, Maryland, I’ve been a native to this area my entire life. I attended Mount Saint Joseph for high school and Towson University for college, earning a degree in Business Management. The coursework and education I received paved the foundation for my life in business. Growing up, I was surrounded by many family members who own and operate their own businesses. Seeing these organizations function and experiencing what was involved appealed to me greatly, I knew from a very young age that being an entrepreneur was what I wanted to do with my life.
I began working early on for my family’s ceramic tile & marble business, learning the processes of home remodeling, construction and general business practices. I continued this each summer throughout grade school and into high school. When I started college, I discontinued working for the family business and spent summers and holiday breaks working for a small landscape contracting company. This was where my knowledge and training on landscape design, build and installation began.
During my junior year in college, I came up with the plan to launch a lawn care company and venture off on my own. In 2007, I began mowing lawns in the Catonsville area. The first year I serviced approximately 12-15 single-family houses, providing basic lawn mowing services just one day a week. The following year, in 2008, I incorporated the business and we were off and running.
I can proudly say that 2017 will be our 10th year in business, a big milestone for this company. Over the years, we’ve grown substantially, from a single small SUV to a growing fleet of vehicles, and now operate in a much larger territory and offer a more comprehensive array of services. In season, we’ll employee a team of about 30+ in house staff members that are highly talented in the areas of management, field production, sales and office administration. I can honestly say that a big part of our success has been attributed to the great people we have on staff. In addition, our consistent planning and strategic goal setting helps propel us forward every single day.
We’re currently active members in the Community Associations Institute (CAI) as well as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Over the last four consecutive years, we’ve won the coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, something only about 5% of businesses on Angie’s List are awarded each year. We’re also fully licensed by both the Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC#133784) and Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA-F#0892).
When I am not in the office, you can most likely find me spending time outdoors with my wife and our two dogs. I enjoy traveling, seeing new places, experiencing new things and creating lasting memories with friends and family. I also tend to spend a fair amount of time pursuing other hobbies such as golfing, shooting sporting clays, mountain biking, and snowboarding.
