About Us


‘The Defender’

Hello, my name is Jim Bishop and I am the owner of The Lawn Defender. I have spent the last 26 years working in the landscape industry in central Ohio. My career started at Ameriflora ’92 working on the grounds of the Franklin Park Conservatory. I have since worked my way up the ranks at local landscape contractors starting as a laborer then; crew leader, CADD designer, commercial estimator and finally production manager. I have an associates degree in Landscape Design/Horticulture from Columbus State Community College and I am licensed with the Ohio  Dept of Agriculture as a Commercial Pesticide Applicator.  I have a strong passion for working outdoors and quality workmanship, dependability and your satisfaction is my goal.

During my little bit of off-time I like to: do intarsia, stain glass, playing golf, riding my bike along the Olentangy River trail and working in my veggie garden.
