About us

Our Story

Michael Pugh graduated with a degree in horticulture from Virginia Tech in 2008, and in 2011, he decided to put his lawn care expertise to good use and started Commonwealth Landcare. What started as a two-man, one client operation has grown into a thriving business with more than 40 employees. Commonwealth Landcare is locally owned and operated and has built a team professional, hardworking people that live in the same communities they serve.

We conduct our business with a customer-first mentality. Our goal is to provide friendly, professional, expert lawn care service to each and every client. We put in the time and effort to build relationships with our clients and understand their lawn care needs and concerns so that we can be sure we’re providing them with the best service possible.

Commonwealth Landcare is here to keep the natural beauty around your home or business thriving so that you don’t have to spend your free time sweating outside and trying to find solutions to complex land care problems. Our methods are backed by years of experience, and we take pride in performing every job to the highest industry standard.
