Spring has sprung and as Utahns come out of hibernation, we all know one thing: It's time to start thinking about the lawn! When to start watering, what fertilizer or weed care to use, when is it time to start mowing, and most importantly, how is your lawn going to look this season? They say don't judge a book but its cover, but what about someone's yard? A good lawn can make all the difference in how your house is perceived amirite? For the more discerning lawn connoisseur, what if we told you your lawn could look as on-point and premium as a golf green? Jason Taylor, owner of TaylorMade Lawn, has made that very thing possible!

UMLF: For those who don’t know, who is TaylorMade Lawn and what do you do?
TaylorMade: TaylorMade Lawn is a premium lawn leveling, top dressing, renovation, and restoration service. We create and tailor your existing lawn into the lawn you've always wanted it to be. We can transform your lawn to look short and tight, like a golf course fairway, or into a level, lush 3” traditional lawn.
UMLF: Tell us about yourself and your background?
TaylorMade: I was born and raised in Utah and I love this area and the outdoors. I love golfing and making music. I am a father and a husband and enjoy spending time with my family. I come from the securities and business development world. I thrive around people and love making genuine connections!
UMLF: What inspired you to start TaylorMade Lawn?
TaylorMade: After working for others for years I wanted to work for myself but I was not sure in what capacity. I love creating things and I enjoy beautifying my own yard. I challenged myself to totally transform my own lawn in a way that is unique to Utah. I studied and experimented on processes. Through my own yard transformation and feedback from friends and neighbors I realized I could bring this service to others and create a niche in the landscaping industry.
UMLF: What makes you different from other lawn care services in Utah?
TaylorMade: There are many offering lawn maintenance or installing new landscaping. I am exclusively offering lawn leveling and renovation services that are tailored to those who want a unique and upper-end look to their yard. This is a premium service for those who are passionate about their yards and desire an exquisite lawn.
UMLF: What is your service area?
TaylorMade: We service the Wasatch front area in Utah. I have clients from Bountiful to Nephi.
UMLF: Every business has its highs and lows. Tell us about a challenge you faced as a small business owner and how you overcame it?
TaylorMade: Starting my own company during a pandemic when resources are low for everyone was a challenge. I wasn’t sure how to get started. My company needed specialized and expensive equipment. I had to be creative in getting funding to get my company off the ground. I weighed all of my options and found financing and got things started.
UMLF: How do you believe the Utah Microloan Fund has helped your business?
TaylorMade: I did not know how I was going to get funding for my business and wasn’t sure anyone would be willing to take a chance on a start-up company during a global pandemic. I am grateful to the Utah Microloan Fund for the opportunity to get my company the money needed to start my business and give me guidance along the way.
