We treat your lawn and landscape area the way you want and expect. We want to be as affordable as possible but we will not sacrifice quality to be the lowest price among competitors.


Wil Purvis started mowing lawns in Springfield on weekends with a friend and fellow teacher and coach. In the mid 1980’s, when his friend went back to graduate school, Wil took over the lawn mowing.  Another close friend suggested that a family business would be a great way to serve the Lord, build family bonds, create income, and provide flexibility for our large family. In the spring of 1990, with two push mowers and an old half-ton Chevy pickup, Wil started Purvis Family Lawn Care full time with his oldest son and daughter as the first employees. As the business grew so did the Purvis family. Eventually all four sons and some of the daughters helped with the family business, often in the summer or after school. We always tried to please the Lord and our customers by doing our very best. As a result, we became known for our quality, dependable work and reasonable prices.

Those four sons are grown now and the tradition of quality and dependability to bless our customers continues. In 2010, for health reasons, Wil had to turn over daily operations of the business. He asked Grant to take over as operations manager. Grant had taken several landscape construction and maintenance classes while attending college. This has helped the business to expand services into landscape design and construction. In 2011, Grant graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. He decided to remain at Purvis Lawn and Landscape and devote himself to serving our customers with the same quality and dependability that has characterized our work since the 1980’s.


We are excited about the future of Purvis Lawn and Landscape. We have seen business grow despite tough economic times because of doing right by our customers. We are thankful for the wonderful, loyal customers we currently have and look forward to adding many new customers in the future. We aim to continue providing beautiful and attractive lawns and landscapes over Springfield and the surrounding area for many more years to come. We hope to offer several new services this year so keep an eye on our website for important announcements. Thank You!
