Welcome to vanert's llc

serving lenawee county since 1997

Kevin  B. VanErt, Jr. established VanErt’s Lawn Service in 1997, beginning as a  residential mowing company.  At age 16, he mowed 40 lawns a week in a  manufactured home neighborhood.  During the remaining high school years,  his sister and school friends helped with the work.

 After high  school, Kevin planned to attend college to study engineering, but  decided to wait one year to earn funding.  Soon, four years had gone by  and the company grew from a push mower in the back of his parent’s  Suburban to trailers, riding mowers and his second pick-up truck. The  possibilities of success soon outweighed the option of attending  college.

Over  the next five years, landscaping became his passion. Learning to run  the business was difficult, but working outdoors and creating unique  projects was fun. 

 After working on many national disaster  projects through local churches and Samaritan’s Purse, Kevin decided to  start doing more building construction projects and now focuses on  hardscapes and home repair work.

"In the Service of the Lord"

As  a Christian, Kevin decided to give Jesus Christ the glory and created  the motto “In The Service of The Lord”.  Ultimately, all we do affects  our heavenly Father.  Having set these values as a foundation in his  life, the Lord has blessed Kevin’s endeavors and helped him through the  difficult times.  Every day has been a blessing from the Lord.
