Fairway Lawns Celebrates 40th Anniversary by Opening New Location

Bessemer, AL – Local company Fairway Lawns is marking 40 years in the industry. As part of the celebration, it opened a new location in Columbia, South Carolina.

Founded in 1979 in Little Rock, Arkansas, the company was originally a ChemLawn franchise. Owners Bob and Jan Rice ran the business with the help of an additional partner.

In late 1980, the couple became the sole owners. During the next decade, they opened branches in Fort Smith and Springdale.

ServiceMaster purchased ChemLawn in 1993, leading the couple to not renew the franchise agreement. They changed the company’s name to Fairway Lawns but retained their same employees, equipment, establishments, and values.

The couple continued expanding throughout Arkansas, opening additional locations in Little Rock and Conway. They traversed state borders starting in 1997. The company has since expanded toAlabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and South Carolina. 

The company strives to be a full-service yardtreatment company for its customers. Depending on each location, the business offers a variety of services. They specialize in everything from fertilization to pest control.

The company’s 40th anniversary happened to intersect with the opening of their Columbia, South Carolina location. Ricky Smith was appointed as manager of the new branch and is overseeing its operations.

According to, the Columbia location covers everywhere from Irmo to Lexington. It offers a variety of services including lawn fertilization, weed programs, shrub and tree fertilization, insect spraying, disease control, and mole cricket control.

Throughout the years, the company has found success due to its dedication to its core values. Back when it was founded in 1979, the company committed itself to creating genuine connections with its customers. Its goal is to provide great customer service and maintain honest relationships.

Aside from treating lawns, the business helps its customers in other ways. It describes itself as passionate about helping its community in every way they can. On its website, for instance, it hosts a yard treatment blog. Visitors can view tips on a variety of topics that will help them take care of their yard.

Since its inception, the company has opened multiple locations across the southeastern United States. The company will likely continue to expand and provide services to an ever-growing client base.
