My first encounter with St. Augustine grass was with a Lawn BoyTM push mower.  It was 1979 and I was ten years old.  Fortunately, my neighbor gave me a broken down John Deere riding mower that we were able to get running. From that moment on, G-Force was born.
My business partner, and little brother, David and I mowed lawns all over the
neighborhood. That was my dad's way of having us learn responsibility. We did so well that we had to hire an older person with a driver's license and a truck to haul stuff. After graduating from Riverview High School in 1986, I went to Stetson University and graduated with physics degree. During that time David kept the business going. 
Then my brother went to college and I had to decide to sell the business or expand. It seemed that my interest in people, plants, electronics and could be brought together as MIKE GAST Lawn Care.
Today we provide complete grounds care for single family homes, community
associations, and commercial properties.
We serve the Sarasota/Manatee region.
Each day we send out over 30 employees with trucks, trailers, mowers, plants,
fertilizer, chemicals and lights to serve you.
