Mike Dreves got his start in lawn care in 1979, working for the largest locally-owned lawn company in Omaha. Since then, he has had a variety of experiences working for other lawn companies. These experiences support an extensive knowledge in what works for lawns and what doesn’t. Experience also leads to a greater understanding of what customers want from their lawn care professionals.
In 1998, after nearly 20 years in growing lawns and a need to feed his entrepreneurial spirit he started LAWNPOWR in 1998. Fast forward to the present, customers can count on a total of 34 years of turf experience, know-how, safety and personal service that LAWNPOWR provides.
The company name originates from Lee Dreves, Mike’s father, who owned a successful ad agency. Family plays an important role in Dreves’ life. His wife Cindi, is a pediatric R.N. by day and co-owner, weekend warrior for LAWNPOWR. Together, they will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this year.

Mike is pictured above with his first Husky Shoni. His current Huskies are name Reggie & Jackson honoring the former player for his favorite all-time sports team the New York Yankees.
