About Steve

Steve and Sally have lived in the Alki neighborhood of West Seattle for over ten years. As the result of a corp-relocation, Steve first moved to the Seattle-area in 1989. He has always enjoyed working outdoors and taking care of lawns and gardens.

Steve is the family MBA (Go Lutes!) behind Alki Lawn. He enjoys interacting with people and getting his hands dirty with the day-to-day service operations.

From the age of eleven, Steve was doing seasonal and yard work for many of his childhood morning paper route customers. His yard and gardening mentors were like surrogate grandparents. They nurtured him while sharing their knowledge and love of all-things gardening and lawn care.

Steve did similar work in high school and during his self-supported, work-through-college years. He was even a reforesting contractor planting pine tree seedlings in the hills of the North Carolina Piedmont.

More recently, Steve has focused on our yard. You may have talked with him out front while he built our surrounding 8-foot tall fence and trellis? This is very likely if you’re walking a dog! Maybe Steve has said, "hello" while working in our front beds of cascading, blue-flowering Lithodora diffusa for his beloved bumble bees.

Steve has created a beautiful lawn and yard. A variety of garden beds and elevations with native plants provide for the year-round benefit of our birds and pollinators.

With his gardening and lawn care background, a joy for serving people, and his passion for nature and for being outdoors, Alki Lawn is a natural fit. Steve cares deeply about quality and excellent, personalized service.

You will experience the same quality, attention-to-detail, and care in the yard and lawn mowing service visits Steve completes for you on behalf of our West Seattle lawn care and yard maintenance service, Alki Lawn.
