The Story Behind Sam's Turf Care

Learn more about the history of our company and how we became the best lawn care company in the Independence, Missouri area.

Even before the idea of starting his own lawn care business was planted in his mind, Sam Dyer, our daring founder, already had the attributes of a real entrepreneur. Having worked at several corporate fast-food chains from 1969 to 1985, Sam's experience in the customer service industry taught him everything about how to deliver high-quality service without ever forgetting to put the customer first.

Sam had always expressed his love for working in the yard and the rewards of cultivating such natural beauty. Impassioned to deliver the same level of pride and satisfaction to others in his community, Sam built his own lawn care business from the ground up and opened the doors for the first time in 1985.

He successfully managed Sam's Turf Care for an incredible 23 years before making the difficult decision to sell the company and essentially retire. With a new start ahead of him, Sam dedicated part of his time to doing missionary work abroad and in his own local community. 

But even after having spent time in places like Uganda, Nigeria, and Kenya, Sam knew something was still missing. This realization motivated him to return to his roots and reopen Sam's Turf Care in 2014 right here in Independence, MO just outside of Kansas City!

Why? The answer is simple: he missed the opportunity to help others. Here is what our own leader Sam has to say about getting back into the lawn care industry:

"In the 5 years that I have been retired, I've missed helping people make their home lawns look good, giving them something they can be proud of. I also encountered many of my customers in my daily walk of life, and after talking about the weather and the everyday things, the question always came up: 'Are you ever going to go back in business?' Well, I have decided to go back into the lawn care business! My company is Sam's Turf Care!" - Sam Dyer
