King GREEN is dedicated to providing the finest service available to your home, lawn and landscape. Founder Charlie King has been in the turf grass industry for over 35 years and has had continued success in operating, maintaining, and expanding King GREEN

Charlie King founded King GREEN in the basement of his home in 1987. He started with one truck, spraying each lawn himself while his wife, Barbara, handled the paperwork and billing. King GREEN has continuously grown since then. We now have six branches in Georgia and one in North Carolina. We are committed to offering the same level of service now as we did then.  We are truly proud to stake the claim of “The Finest Service Company Available!”

Charlie is very involved in the Green Industry and is a prominent leader among its members. Not only is he a licensed pesticide applicator through the Georgia Department of Agriculture, but he is also an active member of NALP, UAC, and GTA. King GREEN has a reputation for employee loyalty and reliability. Many of King GREEN’s employees have been with the company for 10 years or more. We strive to make our lawn care company the finest available, with the best working staff in the lawn care service industry.
