Aurora Services, Inc. was founded by five Aurora businessmen as a liquid lawn care company. They incorporated on April 30th, 1979 and began the business on May 8th, 1979. The company showed early rapid growth in the Aurora area leading to the hiring of a general manager to oversee the day-to-day operations. In 1980 the decision was made to add underground sprinkler installation to the company profile. As work started to expand away from the Aurora area, the company name was changed to Easy Lawn, Inc. Keith Wasem was hired as general manager in 1981 and over the next 4 years began to buy out the original five owners. The business continues to grow and expand; now serving a nine county area.
