Lawns R Us is a family-owned and operated business, founded in March 1995 by me (Dave) and my wife, Marcia. Our ﬁve children contributed to the business growing up. James and Grace are now full-time employees with Rebecca working part time as needed. In addition to immediate family, we have several full time and part time employees that have joined the Lawns R Us family to help serve our wonderful customers.
David & Marcia Schillinger, Owners
David is one of the co-owners of Lawns R Us. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Marcia, as they are now “empty nesters”. He also enjoys spending time with his family, especially his three grandchildren. His passion is to serve his customers and “Pruning the earth to the GLORY of God”.
Marcia is co-owner of Lawns R Us. She enjoys volunteering at the Tazewell County Pregnancy Resource Center in Pekin. She also is an active team member with the Deeper Still Ministry a post-abortive ministry.
Grace is the youngest sibling of the Schillinger clan. But don’t let that fool you. She is our office manager of the LRU Office. One of her many tasks is keeping David on task and on schedule. If you call the Lawns R Us office, you will probably speak to Grace regarding all your yard needs.
James is the oldest son of David & Marcia. He has been working at Lawns R Us off and on since he could push a mower. James has a beautiful daughter which is the first grandchild of David & Marcia. James is becoming a leader in Lawns R Us and enjoys serving the customers of Lawns R Us.
Nathan started with Lawns R Us at the beginning of the 2017 season. Nathan is becoming a great leader as a Truck Lead of one of our mowing crews. Nathan comes from a great family in the Morton area. Nathan enjoys music & sports. He also loves the outdoors which makes working at Lawns R Us a great fit. There is a great future for Nathan on the LRU team.
Troy came to work for Lawns R Us a month into the 2017 season. Troy has brought much knowledge and experience from previously working at a tree service and a local nursery. Troy is a newlywed and is enjoying his wonderful new bride. Troy is quickly becoming an intracule part of LRU. There are high hopes for Troy as he continues to be part of the LRU team.
Anthony came to Lawns R Us through a referral of a longtime friend. Anthony is currently a college student and on the track team at Illinois Central College. Anthony came to us with some previous experience working for a local park district. Anthony is usually one of the first people to arrive at the LRU shop and start preparing for the day. He is a great addition to the LRU team.
