Our Story


Hey there! Thank you for visiting us here at Higher Ground Lawn Care & Lighting. My name is JP and I’m the owner around here. My wife and I started this company on the side of my full-time job as a way to save more money. Little did we know that my job would be eliminated very soon presenting me the question: Do I go get another job and build someone else’s business or start my own?

Well, you guessed it, Higher Ground was born in response to that very question. I have always wanted my own business and I love the outdoors. It seemed to be a natural fit not to mention all the fond memories as a child I have playing barefoot on my grandfather’s cool lush grass under a big oak tree.

However, I wanted to be different from the run-of-the-mill lawn care company out there. As a Christian, I wanted this to be a purpose-driven business with a higher calling:

  1. ​To be environmentally ethical, encouraging organic methods as much as possible keeping our pets and children safe.
  2. Making a lasting impact by fighting injustice where we live.

We want to serve our customer’s properties as if they were our very own, promoting beautiful outdoor spaces encouraging family and friends to spend more time together outdoors while glorifying the Lord who made it all.

Our Scripture: The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:8​

We Support 4MUS

Comfort and control might be attending another retreat, another conference, another Saturday morning breakfast. If you want different results then DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. 4MUS is uniquely designed to take you out of your comfort zone and to create an environment of inspiration and challenge. So if you desire to become a husband, father, friend or brother who experiences a lasting impression of an adventure that gives you new insights into your life and your relationship with God, then sign up for a 4MUS event today. Choices will be made, brotherhood formed, the Church and families strengthened, and you will no longer be the same.
