Lawn Care in Hastings Nebraska

Extensive Experience

Total Turf Care is operated by Rick McMickell who earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Agronomy & Soil Science at UNL in 1980. Total Turf Care is able to provide our high standard of service, thanks to Rick's extensive experience:

  • 1980-1985 UNL: Agricultural Research Technician II – Design, maintenance and evaluation of over 100 greenhouse and field experiments of the USDA-ARS/UNL grass breeding project.
  • Completed 34 hours of graduate Agronomy course work in plant breeding and plant physiology.
  • 1986-1992: All Green Lawn Care Corporation—Manager for national lawn care business.



Rick and Ann McMickell purchased the equipment and accounts from Barb Whitten of Whittens Lawn Care in January 1992, and started Total Turf and Tree Care.

For the first 10+ years the company offered a variety of services including mowing, tree spraying for insects and disease, and snow removal. The past 15+ years have been focused on commercial and residential lawn fertilization, weed control and turf-damaging insect control.

Seeing a need for a local company that offered Industrial weed control, Total Turf Care added the service in the early 2000's - a Total Vegetation Control for right of ways, pipe yards, railroad tracks, storage units, parking lots and industrial facilities.
