The organic lawn care company will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2012.

| March 16, 2012

FREDERICK, Md. – NaturaLawn of America Inc., commemorates a new milestone in 2012 – 25 years of innovation and environmental stewardship.
 
NaturaLawn of America is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a “silver” reminder of how its green longevity began in 1987. NaturaLawn of America’s Founder and President Philip Catron’s qualifications as a board-certified agronomist enabled him to develop a natural and organic-based lawn care company with a unique and proprietary line of products.
 
Catron credits his staff and 60-plus franchisees across the United States for their efforts in distinguishing NaturaLawn of America throughout the past 25 years.
 
Decade by decade, NaturaLawn’s credibility has continuously grown with rankings in the nation’s top publications from 1990 through today, including Lawn & Landscape, Inc. Magazine, Entrepreneur, Plenty Magazine, AngiesList.com and The Wall Street Journal.
 
Milestones were reached in the 1990s when NaturaLawn was the only lawn care company invited to testify before the U.S. Congressional hearing for the Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform and Oversight of Committee on Small Business in the U.S. House of Representatives.
 
NaturaLawn was also a contributing author in helping the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency write the handbook on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for lawn care and signed a contract to provide the first professional playing field to go organic in the nation with safer turf care at Memorial Stadium for the then-Baltimore Stallions in Baltimore, Md.
 
Every cloud may have its silver lining, and NaturaLawn believes that its 25 years of expertise in the green industry will continue to deliver further success to its customers across America.
