About Steve and Sally

Steve and Sally have lived in the Alki neighborhood of West Seattle for over ten years. Steve has always enjoyed working outdoors and taking care of lawns and gardens. Sally prefers the behind-the-scenes action of the business and can be found doing the books when not at her 8-5 job.

Steve is the family MBA behind Alki Lawn Care. He enjoys the day-to-day operations and interactions with people. From the age of eleven, Steve was doing seasonal and yard work for many of his childhood, morning paper route customers. These mentors were like surrogate grandparents who nurtured him and shared their knowledge and love of all-things garden and lawn care.

Steve did similar work in high school and during his self-supported, work-through-college years. For a time, he was a reforesting contractor planting pine trees in the hills of the central North Carolina piedmont.

More recently, Steve has focused on our yard. You may have talked with him out front while he built our surrounding 8-foot tall fence and trellis? This is very likely if you’re walking a dog! Maybe Steve has said, "hello" while working in our front beds of red and white clover for his beloved bumble bees. Steve has created a beautiful lawn and yard. A variety of garden beds and elevations with native plants provide for the year-round benefit of our birds and pollinators.

With his gardening and lawn care background, a joy for serving people, and his passion for being outdoors, Alki Lawn Service is a natural fit for Steve. He cares about quality. You will experience the same quality, attention-to-detail, and care in the work Steve completes for you.
