Bryan Clayton is a former lawn mower turned landscaping entrepreneur.
Back in 1998, when Bryan was still in v college, he started mowing lawns on the side to make a little money. Not one to settle for a little success, he decided to turn his lawn mowing into Peach Tree Landscaping and he spent the next 14 years scaling it to a team of 150 and $10 million in revenue, until he sold and exited the company in 2014.
Today Bryan is the CEO and Co-Founder of GreenPal, the Uber for lawn care, which he founded in 2014 and has grown to almost 200,000 active users and over $20 million in annual revenue. GreenPal is nationwide in the US and will soon be expanding into Canada.
