The co-founders of Lawn Doctor were Bob Magda & Tony Giordano.
In the mid-1960s, the two friends were starting out – in Matawan, New Jersey. Bob was apprenticing at Singer Sewing Machine Manufacturing, while Tony was the owner of a small hardware store located on Main Street.
When construction started on nearby housing development, new homeowners flocked to Tony’s store with questions about creating and caring for their lawns. As an accomplished entrepreneur as well as a natural salesperson who enjoyed explaining things, Tony welcomed the questions.
The desire for lawn advice grew so great that Tony began conducting special workshops in lawn care each Sunday morning. Every week, he attracted crowds that were standing-room only.
But Tony grew disheartened upon seeing homeowners spend so much money, time and effort doing their own lawn care without getting the desired results.
After Tony discussed his frustration with Bob, the two of them decided they would start their own lawn care business. Auto Lawn – the predecessor to Lawn Doctor – came to life with a handshake.
