She and her husband Mark opened their lawn care business nearly 34 years ago. Mark added, “We really want to thank our many customers who took the time and effort to select our company as their favorite in our category. All of us at LawnCare By Walter wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season.”
Almost 200 plaques were awarded, with winners selected via reader’s choice. LawnCare By Walter also took first place in 2017 and placed as a finalist last year.
