During the past several years, Dalton Sommers has turned his lawn care hobby into a successful career. Sommers, who is from Cottage Grove and is currently a business major at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, has recently become the owner, salesman and account manager for the new Madison area location of the Ground Guys.
The Grounds Guys, a lawn care company whose services include lawn maintenance, garden care, landscape management, pruning, landscape clean-up, mulching, fertilization, irrigation and pest management, is based out of Waco, Texas. There are currently 190 franchises across the United States. Sommers said he is excited to bring the second Grounds Guys location to Wisconsin.
