    Hello! I’m Kevin Murphy, owner of The Grounds Guys of Ballantyne. I’ve spent the last 25 years learning about excellence in customer service from great companies in Corporate America. During my COVD-19 lockdown, I had more time to spend on my hobby of designing our own landscaping. After careful introspection, with faith in God’s greater plan, I decided to combine those two, and bring that excellent customer-service training to the field of landscape management.

    I grew up in a loving home with 5 brothers. My parents raised the 6 boys to have a tireless work ethic, led by their example, that continues to serve each of us well today. Early work for the Murphy boys was mowing yards and working at a farm-stand with seasonal flowers.

    Karen and I have been married for 24 years, and we’ve raised our 2 daughters Elizabeth & Emma Kate with the same core values and work ethic we each were taught growing up. One of these photos shows the girls excited to install 4 pallets of mulch at our home in Marvin! (well, “excited” is a stretch, but willing to help the family and work hard is not a stretch for these girls).

    I enjoy bringing the fantastic Grounds Guys standards and quality of customer service to Ballantyne, Matthews, Fort Mill and Indian Land. From our family to yours, we look forward to serving you!
