Growth With Uncommon Service

Professionally, Ben’s journey started with odd landscaping jobs in the neighborhood, leading to a pivotal role on a canvassing team for a local lawn care company after high school. This experience ignited his interest in the lawn care world and customer relations. Over the years, Ben honed his skills working for various landscaping companies, immersing himself in the nuances of turf and grass types.

In 2019, Ben founded Peak Sodding, driven by a vision to fill a void in the market for specialized sod installation services. His business was built on a commitment to excellence and a consultative approach. Ben defines Peak Sodding’s customer service as “Uncommon Service,” striving to exceed expectations in communication, organization, education, and quality of work.

Our goal is not just to line up as many jobs as we possibly can. We carry the burden of ensuring every project is set up for success as best as we possibly can. Even in the elements ‘outside of our control’ like maintenance and long term care, we are constantly making efforts to ensure our clients have realistic expectations and even resources to ensure they aren’t just going to be left with the same situation the following year.
