Meet The Lush Lawn Family




Aaron Gardner Samson

CEO & Founder

Hello, my name is Aaron Samson. I am the founder, owner and CEO of Lush Lawn. I was born in Grand Rapids and grew up in Royal Oak, playing football and baseball in high school. After high school I studied accounting at Walsh College while I started a lawn cutting business. After college I chose to make lawn care full time and gradually moved exclusively into lawn fertilization, tree care and pest control services. During this time I have taken care of my 3 children, raising them in Troy, MI. I have also been active in philanthropy by sponsoring exhibits at the Flint Cultural Center and raising money for Whaley Children’s Center by doing a charity boxing match with former Heavyweight Champ Chris Byrd. I have also coached my son’s Little League and Travel Teams over the last 6 years along with my daughter’s basketball team. I am an avid scholar of ancient history and business history. I still take time to cultivate my own small garden in my Troy backyard growing tomatoes and jalapeño peppers.



Seth Sines

COO/Chief Operating Officer
Hi I’m Seth Sines of Lush Lawn. I have been with Lush Lawn for 8 years now and in the industry for 12 years. I started here as a lawn tech and worked my way up to the position I hold now. In each step of the way my focus is that we can provide the best service in every avenue to our customers. I enjoy anything that has to do with sports, especially University of Michigan sports (Go Blue!). I really enjoy being in the outdoors and have since I was a kid. Guess that’s why I picked a career that has to do with helping everyone enjoy outdoors.

Hello, my name is Kiel Williams, I’m going into my 6th season with Lush Lawn.  I started off as tech working out of the Grand Blanc office, after 2 years of treating lawns I moved my way up to Field Manager, Production Manager and now Branch Manager at the Brighton Branch.  I live in Grand Blanc with my wife of 10 years Sarah and our 2 amazing children.  We have a 3 year old son who is quite the dare devil and our 3 month old daughter who is the sweetest thing in the world.  When I’m not working I really enjoy working out, playing baseball, softball, shooting pool or just hanging out with some friends.  When it comes to the football season I’m a huge MICHIGAN fan and I follow them every week.  I really enjoy working for Lush Lawn and helping everyone enjoy their lawns and their time outdoors.
