Mike Gast 

Mike started mowing lawns as G-Force on Eastbrook Drive where he lived in Sarasota in 1979.  Yes, he was only 10 years old!  Soon, Mike and his younger brother, were mowing most of the 37 lawns on Eastbrook.  He continued while at Riverview High School while playing soccer and playing trumpet and leading the Riverview High Kiltie Band as Captain.  Upon graduation in 1987 he went to Stetson University in Deland, FL were he majored in physics.  While at Stetson he also headed up the mens residence halls.  Mike considered "real" jobs upon graduation but found that he really liked plants.  So when his brother went to college Mike continued with G-Force, whose name was changed to MIKE GAST LAWN CARE, Inc.

Today Mike is the sole owner and President of MIKE GAST Lawn Care, Inc.
