About Merrell Lawn & Landscape

Customers should always know who they are dealing with, especially if their home or property is involved.

My name is Robert Merrell and I am the proud owner of Merrell Lawn and Landscape.  I grew up in the small town of Sparta, Tennessee and graduated from White County High School in 1999.  After high school I worked at a pipe manufacturing company as a pipe fitter and welder for almost 5 years.  I decided to try my hand at college and attended Tennessee Tech University where I graduated with a Bachelors in Accounting. Soon after graduation I decided to serve my country.  

I joined the Army as a Combat Medic and performed that job in Iraq from 2009-2010.  I then changed jobs from a medic to a Physical Therapy Assistant where I was able to help injured and wounded soldiers successfully return to duty.  The Army was able to make use of me for 8 years until I was honorably discharged in 2016.

The Army taught and instilled in me some great values including hard work, dedication, honor, integrity, loyalty, and selfless service.  While in the Army, I was able to attain a Masters in Accounting from Liberty University.  I landed an accounting position with a great company in Nashville and after only a couple months decided that being stuck indoors wasn't for me.  

For some crazy reason I have always loved mowing my yard and doing landscaping around the house.  During my middle and high school years I made money through the several yards that I took care of.  So after finally deciding that accounting and indoors wasn't for me, I started my own lawn and landscaping business.  I have a mentor with 20+ years of experience in lawncare and landscaping who has taught me a great deal about the business and is constantly teaching me more every day.

I am married to my beautiful wife Melissa and have three amazing children.  I also have three great dogs and currently reside in Sparta, TN.  Golf is my sport of choice which I have been trying to master for about 15 years now, but I love to play just about any sport as I am very competitive.  

I am dedicated to providing professional and quality service to all my customers while charging a reasonable rate. By treating everyone with the respect and dignity they deserve, I will be able to make long lasting friends and customers.  I guarantee that my work will be done right and in a timely fashion.  If you have any questions about me or the business, please don't hesitate to call or email.  

Proudly serving
