Josh Fromme | Owner

Josh graduated from Illinois State University in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture Business. After graduation he was determined to give the residents of Springfield, IL a professional, caring, and locally owned lawn care company. Starting off with zero customers, one truck, and himself as the only employee, Josh began providing professional, customer service-based lawn care with one motto guiding him every minute of every day, “Promises Kept." With hard work and dedication, he expanded the company to what it is today. Outside of work Josh enjoys spending time with his wife Beth, and their three children Emma, Reagan, and William. He is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan and can often be found barbecuing something delicious in his backyard.    
 

 Nick Heineman | Technical/Marketing Manager


Nick started his journey with Weed Man in 2008 as a salesperson and technician. Nick loves that Weed Man gives people the opportunity for a career, “If you work hard, hit your goals, and grow yourself personally you can do anything within our company.” Following this mission every day, Nick has moved up through the company and was eventually promoted to the technical and marketing manager. A typical day at work consists of analyzing performance and coaching for success. In the evenings, you can find Nick coaching his sons traveling baseball team and on the weekends, he enjoys playing golf with friends and spending time with his wife Erin and their two children, Max and Emma.
