"I have always had a love for equipment and at a young age took a liking to tractors. My great grandfather was a truck patch farmer and I can remember digging potatoes with my grandfather, mom and dad. I was always fascinated my grandfathers tractors and trucks. At the age of 10 I was looking to have some spending money and started with my first mowing customer, which I still have today; 20 years later. In 1993 Merkle’s Mowing was officially started. My business has grown mainly through referrals from my loyal customer base. Attention to detail, maintaining a very good customer relationship along with good communication has been key to my progress. Most of my customers have known me as I have grown as a business and as a person. For me reputation is everything. You can always reach me directly to deal with any needs or questions. I am dedicated to my work, I love what I do, and it shows in the results. I am always looking for new products and attending certification and education classes to better my services."

Tom Merkle 1983 Age 7, FIRST time mowing the lawn!

IMoLwnz….. ???? " I Mow Lawns ", shortened to fit on a Pennsylvania license plate. This of course has a story behind it. While on a trip to Atlanta, GA in 1990, once again with my parents and grandparents, we came across a Lexus in a mall parking lot that had a plate which read I SEL DRT (I Sell Dirt). We thought that it was an interesting plate and I immediately said that when I got a truck my plate would be “I Mow Lawns”. It just fits. I’ve been involved with mowing lawns for 20 years now and it’s part of who I am.
