Jacob Godar, CEO

Scooter’s Lawn Care, Inc.


Scooter’s Lawn Care, Inc. was founded by Jacob Godar in April 2014.

It started as a one-man, part-time venture in Springfield, Illinois, but that didn’t last long. By the end of the 2014 season, Jacob had acquired 20 lawn maintenance accounts.

In the spring of 2015, Jacob quit his day job in the auto body field to operate the business full-time. By the end of 2015, Jacob was operating all commercial professional equipment and had more than tripled his client list.

In January 2016, the business was incorporated under the name Scooter’s Lawn Care, Inc.

In 2018, Scooter’s Lawn Care won “Best Landscape Designer – Jacob Godar” and “Best Landscape Company,” among other local awards and nominations that year.

In January 2019, the company relocated to a commercial location with client walk-in access, a vendor showroom, and expanded room for equipment and plant storage. The company operates five to seven crews full-time.

What has made us such a success?

From the beginning, Jacob used his knowledge of small business operations and previous professional landscape experience as tools for success. He has built Scooter’s Lawn Care, Inc. to be a rapidly growing landscaping company with a stellar reputation. Currently one of the leading lawn care and landscaping companies in central Illinois, Scooter’s is expanding exponentially while maintaining its small business values.
