About Us

Learn about the history of Making Solid Ground Lawn Care and its founder, Johnathen Powell.

Locally-Owned & Operated

MSG Lawn Care was built from the ground up on the principles of passion and integrity. Led by founder Johnathen Powell, we take pride in our work, appearance and respect for our clients. The foundation of our work stems from years of experience and extensive learning from institutions including Cornell University and SUNY Farmingdale. Johnathen praises his grandmother for teaching him horticulture at the young age of 7 years old.

Johnathen prides himself on a tenured career in law enforcement which adds to the integrity in the work performed by our team at MSG Lawn Care. Our top focus is delivering services that not only boost the aesthetics of your home or business, but also to improve overall health of your lawn, trees, plants and other landscape elements. We continually attend industry conferences and events to stay on the cutting edge to ensure our clients receive the best possible service.

Before we begin rendering our services, we perform a soil test to obtain the raw data on how many nutrients your lawn or plants are lacking. The primary reason for this is to prevent runoff. We do not want to apply any more fertilizer or chemical than absolutely necessary. One of the mantras our team uses commonly is “We don’t guess, we test.”

MSG Lawn Care is fully-licensed with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and carry a thorough insurance policy as well. So rest assured, your property is in good hands when you make the decision to hire us for your next landscaping project or property maintenance.
