Sixth Generation, Family-Owned Lawn Care Business Expands to Fourth Location in Memphis, Tennessee


A beloved Weed Man franchise group based in Lexington, Kentucky – helmed by father Stephen Hillenmeyer and sons Seth and Chase Hillenmeyer – has recently expanded to a fourth location in Memphis, Tennessee. 


What began as a four-truck operation in Lexington in the early 2000s, with a foundation of six generations (and hundreds of years) of family experience in the green industry, has grown to a thriving four-site lawn care business that services homeowners in Lexington, Cincinnati, Nashville, and now Memphis.


“We have an awesome team of young leaders who are hungry and growing,” says Chase Hillenmeyer. “What gets us up out of bed every day is partnering with them and seeing people grow and reach their goals, professionally and personally… That’s what fuels us. That’s what excites us. Developing new leaders and showing them the path that’s possible.”


This expansion has already created significant career opportunities for members of the Hillenmeyers’ team, as leaders from their existing operations have been promoted to manage the Memphis location, and new leaders continue to rise in Lexington, Nashville, and Cincinnati.


“It’s an amazing place to work,” says executive assistant Janette Barrington. “The culture is amazing. The company cares for its employees. If you want to progress, if you want more, this is the place you want to be. They’ve built a family sense of culture, really.”


Of his family, Stephen Hillenmeyer says, “I feel very fortunate that I have two sons who both care for each other as people first before the business. They’re both entrepreneurs and go-getters. It’s an absolute joy, from my standpoint.”


“We know how lucky we are to work well as a family and a team,” agrees Seth Hillenmeyer, reiterating that “our vision and where we want to go is all about continuing to grow and create opportunities for our team members.”


The Weed Man Memphis location officially opened its doors in late fall 2023, and the Weed Man team is ready to hit the ground running for the 2024 lawn care season.
