Arbor-Nomics Turf Celebrates 40 Years of Caring for Atlanta’s Lawns, Trees & Shrubs
It is quite a triumph for any small business to go strong for forty years – and counting. So we are extremely pleased to announce that March 4, 2020, marks Arbor-Nomics Turf’s 40th anniversary. The company provides lawn and ornamental tree and shrub care to residences throughout the greater Atlanta area.
When Arbor-Nomics began, it was very small, indeed – just one man and a truck. The founder and still-owner, Dick Bare, grew up working in his family’s nursery and landscape business and went on to earn a degree in horticulture from Ohio State University. After working for a few landscape and maintenance companies, Bare decided to strike out on his own, initially focusing on ornamental tree and shrub care.
Bare says he established and grew the business by delivering flyers all over the Atlanta area and by “always doing more than what is expected.” For example, taking a customer’s trash can in from the curb and helping to carry in groceries were not on Arbor-Nomics’ list of services, but they were a part Bare’s daily routine as he traveled his routes. When he began hiring employees to meet growing customer demand, he expected them to do the same.
“I have always trained employees to do everything the way I would do it. From the beginning, it was important to me to create a culture of service, of giving back. Today, when I hear stories of a tech helping a customer or even a customer’s neighbor, it tells me the culture took root and flourished. I think that’s something we can all be proud of.”
Dick Bare, Arbor-Nomics CEO/President
Bare added lawn care services in 1986 and changed the company name to Arbor-Nomics Turf to reflect the expanded offerings.
Today Arbor-Nomics serves nearly 25,000 residences with five program options and a host of add-on services to meet the needs of different yards and budgets. The Silver and Silver Plus programs provide lawn care. The Gold, Gold Plus, and Platinum programs include ornamental tree and shrub care in addition to lawn care.
