About Mowers & Blowers
COMING OF AGE - THE BEGINNING OF ENTREPRENEURS PETEY AND KARSEN MARSHALL
Ever since they were young children, the Marshall Brothers, Petey and Karsen, used their imaginations to create innovative solutions to solve everyday problems. Investing in a piece of commercial equipment in approximately June of 2018 which was equivalent to a backhoe with a blade, they learned quickly and only by mere happenstance that their new investment would remove any vehicle from the ditch of a cold, slippery, snow-covered or ice-laden highway, byway, or rural route, particularly during Ohio’s sometimes brutal and unfriendly winter weather conditions. The two Brothers found themselves performing such services with their newly-invested, commercial piece of equipment, but merely as a gesture equal to that of a Random Act of Kindness.
When folks began to share with the two Brothers how unaffordable and time-consuming it was for a professional Snow Removal Company or Towing Service to rescue them and their vehicle, through word-of-mouth or a friend-of-a-friend, these individuals would invariably find their way to the Marshall Brothers, who would simply suggest what their service was meant to be: a God-send, if you will. They didn’t have any fees associated with services for their yet-to-be-named company, because they hadn’t determined what their best course of action would become with their investment. Though the two had the entrepreneurial spirit of the Wright Brothers and had become famous from a young age for their many ‘super-fly’ “side businesses,” the truth of the matter was that their newest investment was a good financial decision, but their action plan as to how best to use it cost-effectively, to help people, and to receive a return on their investment, hadn’t yet been born. “It wasn’t the typical piece of equipment like a snow plow or a tow truck,” Karsen Marshall would state emphatically, but he would so eloquently add: “The thing is, we’d accomplish the same mission as a tow truck or a heavy snow removal piece of equipment. It would just take us an extra 15 to 30 minutes to achieve the same desired outcome.”
More often than not, these two Angels would be offered a dollar figure by those they’d been sent to rescue. The ‘Guardian Protectors’ in the Marshall Brothers were quick to reject the money until every person would profess how expensive such a service would become for them, and they’d insist Petey or Karsen take something. Most would offer half of the sum they originally would have been charged by a towing service or a snow removal company.
THE BIRTH OF MOWERS AND BLOWERS, LLC, AND ITS STAFF OF 8
These tactics helped Karsen Marshall create their model of business, improve upon a redesign of their business so that it could become year-round, and think outside of the box in looking for continuous and ongoing new solutions to solve even more everyday problems.
Recognizing that their backhoe-with-a-blade could also accomplish the same mission if a car were stuck in mud, dirt, or gravel on the side of a road or elsewhere, Karsen’s wheels were figuratively spinning into motion. “Now, I realized we could use our equipment not only as a source of rescue equipment, but also to actually dig ditches. That’s when I knew we also had to create a business which would allow us to do just that. Why not use it for landscape and lawn care services, too, I suggested to my Brother Petey, so I immediately thought of ‘Mowers and Blowers’ as a mainstream, dual service and company name. That’s how the business was born,” Karsen explained. It’s also how they’ve added more commercial equipment to their ever-growing company, enough for the two Brothers to be co-owners, with Karsen being the front runner, and to add an extra staff of 6 to their mix, in two teams of 4.
MOWERS AND BLOWERS, LLC, THEIR SERVICE AREA AND HOURS OF OPERATION
It’s hard not to say on that day 18 months ago, that a star was born in Karsen Marshall, according to the many customers of this company, particularly in the coming age of the young, vibrant, and enthusiastic entrepreneur of these contemporary times. ‘Mowers & Blowers, LLC,’ at just 18 months young as a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC), is starting to become the leader of the pack of its more than 50 competitors in Columbus, and upwards of more when you begin to travel to their entire service area, which encompasses every community 50 miles north, south, east, and west of Downtown Columbus, Ohio. But that competition is in the lawn care and mowing business. THERE ARE VERY FEW COMPANIES WHO PROVIDE ONE-STOP SHOPPING IN SUCH NICHE-SPECIFIC, DUAL SERVICES. In the winter months, their operation is 24/7. In the nonwinter months of anywhere from March through October and up to even November, the lawncare portion of their business is from sun-up to sun-down, or up to 9 PM at the height of the summer months, when daylight is a friend to everyone in Ohio.
WHO ARE THE CUSTOMERS OF MOWERS & BLOWERS, LLC?
Any residential or commercial customer who seeks in the winter months snow plow services, snow removal services, snow rescue services, or any rescue services during nonwinter months, when April showers find you stuck in the mud on your property, or worse yet, someone else’s, Mowers & Blowers, LLC is there for you in any circumstance.
Commercial customers can pre-pay for a year’s services at a discount or enter into an annual contract, particularly where snow removal is an issue for their business property (i.e., their retail or office parking lot, as an example). Residential customers can also enter into the same agreements. Emergency services are also available if you’re stuck in your driveway and can’t get to work, or if you’re a freestanding business and don’t know whom to turn for emergency services and perhaps beyond. In fact, that’s how most of the regular customers of Mowers and Blowers, LLC have come to be-through one-off, one-time, emergency services. As Karsen Marshall advised: “Most of our customers see the value in our business. All it takes is that one instance where a business owner has a need for a clear thru-way for its customers, and a need to ensure all of its sidewalks, entrances and exits are cleared of snow and ice, eliminating liability and providing ease of use for its customers, in order for our company to earn a lifetime customer.”
Mowing and lawn care services are managed in the same way. “We have a large number of commercial customers who enter into a yearly contract with us for some or all of our services, and many who prepay for their agreed upon services. The same holds true of residential customers,” Karsen explained. He emphasized the following, as well: “Though we encourage annual contracts and yearly prepay customers, it is not required. Contracts and prepays are for REGULAR emergency, weekly, biweekly, and monthly services for both our plowing, snow removal, rescue and all lawn care and mowing services.”

SNOW REMOVAL, PLOWING, RESCUE, SALTING AND OTHER SERVICES, AND OUR GUARANTEE TO MATCH OR BEAT PRICING
To paraphrase the Marshall Brothers’ creed, most all of the residential market share in snow plowing comes from single contractors, but there’s an upside to that for you, the customer, Karsen Marshall explains. For residential customers, specifically, who live in more remote areas, Google Maps gives us your exact location and the estimated time to arrive to you from where one of our teams is located. He further added that his Teams can give you an EXACT time of arrival when you’re stranded in your own driveway!
In addition, with harsher storms that have hit Ohio with greater frequency in these past 6 years, snowplowing has become a growing business but one which almost certainly demands a commitment from the customer. Though there are approximately 30,000 residential snow plowing companies in the United States, and three times as many who perform commercial snow plowing like Karsen Marshall and his Teams, to malls and offices, it’s just smart business sense to plan in advance. No matter the need, whether it’s residential or commercial, Mowers and Blowers, LLC will provide not only plowing services, but also all snow removal services, salting, rock salting, calcium, and ice melting services, and to driveways, sidewalks, parking lots, malls, offices, all business roadways and alleyways, stairwells, porches, and more, and to all residential and commercial customers. If it’s not listed, please ask. Remember, we provide free estimates, same day turnaround time for general inquiries, and fast service for emergencies! Call us or send us an email. Either way, we’ll respond to your non-emergency within the same day, and to your emergency quickly. We do our best to accommodate the needs of all of our customers, and we match or beat our competitors’ pricing.
Don’t forget our annual contracts and prepay services, too, just like with our lawn care and mowing services! THEY ARE THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE YOU’RE “COVERED” AT ALL TIMES (or should we say uncovered, from snow, sleet, ice, and more!).
