INNOVATION SINCE 1936
Green Drop is a fourth generation family business. We’ve been in the growth business for over nine decades. Some highlights:
Val Vista Ranch founded by Jim and Irene Robinson in Springbank, AB. They raise crops, cattle, and three boys. Jim and Irene redefine what it means to be community builders. In 1960 they donate the land that today is the Springbank Park For All Seasons.
Robinson brothers Keith and John run custom harvesting operation. Over four months they travel from midwestern US to Northern Alberta with two John Deere 8870 combines and two grain trucks. They fight tornados in Kansas, floods in Montana, and skeptical border guards in Alberta. They decide to stick closer to home in the future.
Green Drop Lawns Ltd. is founded. The first lawn care company of its kind in western Canada. John buys one truck and confidently puts an ad in the Calgary Herald advertising the “Green Drop Lawn Spray Service”. Phone rings off the hook. One truck is not enough.
Green Drop Edmonton opened. There’s a tornado on opening day. After everything is cleaned up, Edmonton office is successful and stays at same location until 2019.
Green Drop Winnipeg is founded by buying out a local company. Over the next decade Green Drop will add additional branches in Red Deer, Saskatoon, and Regina.
State of the art Winnipeg Customer Care Centre is opened to great fanfare. And cake.
Green Drop Lawns Ltd. passes milestone 40,000 annual subscribers. More cake. GreenKeeper™ consensus: We’re just getting started.
THE ART AND SCIENCE OF LAWN AND TREE CARE
Maintaining healthy modern landscapes is part art and all science. At Green Drop we believe that a healthy urban landscape is critical to human health and wellbeing. Beautifully maintained green space is good for the environment too. In addition to their aesthetic benefit, healthy lawns and trees clean and purify air, provide oxygen, minimize noise, and act as a natural cooling system during hot weather.
WE GROW FAMILIES AND CAREERS
Our GreenKeepers™ are at the heart of everything we do. At Green Drop we believe that building a great company helps build great communities. A strong focus on our core values and a long term outlook are our competitive advantage. High performance customer focused culture is our secret to success. While others may chase short term flash in the pan success, we build greatness one lawn, one tree, and one happy customer at a time.
