Ricky Swan started at Purple Care at the beginning of our 2017 season as a Mow Crew Leader. He became a Lawn Technician a year later in 2018 treating lawns. He enjoys MMA fighting and dirt bikes. If he were a plant, tree or flower, he would be a dandelion because he makes the hard times a little easier. Dandelions are a sign the soil is compact. Their wide-spreading roots loosen hard-packed soil, aerate the earth and help reduce erosion.
