‚ÄčSouthern Ground Organics is the result of a long-time dream and passion of its owner.  Zach Ellis is from Tifton, Georgia and graduated from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina earning a degree in history.  Prior to beginning Southern Ground, Zach coached college football. 


Zach's experience with all things outdoors began at a young age assisting his grandfather on his large farm in Alabama and working summers on a local sod farm.  After meeting his wife and settling down in Lexington, South Carolina, Zach's love of biology, working in the yard and a healthy lifestyle led him to begin researching organic lawn and property care.  In finding that the health of the soil is the most important factor in creating a beautiful lawn and landscape, and in turn learning the risks and hazards of chemical fertilizers, Zach decided to begin this company to provide an alternative to traditional lawn care and landscaping in the Midlands area.  

In partnering with Beesafe Organic Land Care, Southern Ground will be able to provide the nation's very best in quality organic lawn care products.  Southern Ground's mission is to create outdoor environments people can really live in.  


Enjoying the outdoors is fundamental to the makeup of the South and providing impressive spaces and outside living environments in which to bring people together is also part of this culture.  Southern Ground seeks to provide the best of both worlds to each and every client: the health and safety of an organic lawn and landscape as well as the beauty and sustainability of an impressive outdoor space you can be proud of.
