When Larry Ryan founded Ryan Lawn & Tree in Overland Park, KS in 1987, he set out to create a lawn care company focused on building relationships – both with its customers and with its employees. This commitment to relationships has helped Ryan Lawn & Tree grow into one of the Midwest’s largest lawn service providers, and has built the company a reputation as a lawn care provider that goes the extra mile for its clients.








"I like that Bayer backs their products. I always feel like they've got my back. They're also a leader in supporting the industry as a whole, and I appreciate that."
