About The Guest:
Bryan Clayton has been in the lawn care industry his entire working life starting with mowing neighbor’s lawns in high school to ultimately founding Peach Tree Inc, a market-leading landscape company in the southeast, and growing the firm to over 125 employees. In 2013, he navigated the successful acquisition of Peach Tree to Landscapes USA a national provider of commercial landscape services. The inspiration for GreenPal is born out of the frustration Bryan observed while operating the landscape business, and how difficult it is for homeowners to find, schedule, and pay reliable small lawn care professionals. Bryan is in charge of GreenPal’s strategic direction and growth to become the platform that powers the lawn care industry.
