Our Story

Marty and Rich by a red truck, 1984

Marty Grunder founded Grunder Landscaping Co. in 1984 with a $25 lawnmower he bought at a garage sale and the goal of making enough money to pay for college. He put himself through the University of Dayton while running the company from his dorm room, and in the process discovered his life’s work and passion. Today, Grunder Landscaping Co. is a respected leader in the green industry. With a dedicated team of professionals and an unwavering commitment to quality and customer service, we have won more than 50 local and national awards and are a two-time recipient of the Better Business Bureau’s Eclipse Integrity Award.
