Better Together Lawn Care

Better Together Lawn Care

by Steve Gamel

The latest feel-good story to hit social media in the Lake Cities area involves three young boys who concocted the idea of starting up their own lawn care business. Not only did they follow through with those big plans, but they’ve sparked admiration and interest from residents in Denton County
and beyond. Meet Better Together Lawn Care and its owners Aaron Martin (17), Andrew Martin (14), and Wyatt Storey (13). Not even two months old, the company gained steam on Facebook when the boys’ parents began promoting them after July 4.

As of press time for this article, the trio had six regular customers. In total, they had mowed between 30 and 40 yards. “I told them we might have to go out and get more boys,” Aaron and Andrew’s mother, Angel Jones, said with a laugh. She added that they’d received inquiries from as close as Lake Dallas to as far away as Frisco. “I love it. We always support our children and any other child out there in everything they do – especially when they are doing positive things.”

Angel said she is continually being asked how this idea came about, and she’s quick to say it had nothing to do with the parents. Aaron and Andrew, who both go to school in Lake Dallas ISD, are friends with Wyatt, who goes to school in Denton ISD. The trio began devising a plan during offseason football workouts and posed the idea to their respective parents. As parents, they immediately jumped onboard and helped pay for equipment.

They also drive the boys to and from their appointments. An adult is there to supervise every assignment. “They are getting a complete education on business ownership,” Angel said. As for their long-term business plans, the boys are living in the moment and helping out as many residents as they can. There are plans to design a business logo and get the boys their own company phone line and Facebook page. “I didn’t realize they’d be so popular so fast,” Angel said. “They are all working together toward a common goal.”
