Brad and Rachel Bell - Owners

Brad began his career in the lawn care business at the young age of 13. He acceded to his father’s lawn care business. Brad and Rachel came into The Grounds Guys franchise in 2011. The Grounds Guys values mirrored their own, and really spoke to them. Their “God first, family second, work third.” philosophy has guided their personal and business lives and has allowed them to assemble a wonderful team they take great pride in. Each member of the team has been carefully chosen for their professionalism, reliability, amazing work ethic, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile to make sure the customer is happy.

When they are not caring for their customers, Brad and Rachel are enjoying a rich family life with their beautiful twins. When they are not spending time with their family or at church, Brad enjoys racing and Rachel loves to craft and create.
