though Lanes Lawnsprinklers and Landscape Lighting is just starting,
Bob Lane, owner/operator is "no stranger" to this business.
After receiving my degree in "Ornamental Horticulture",
I specialized in "Turf Grass Management". From 1978 - 1993
I owned and operated a lawn care business specializing in chemical
lawn treatments and lawn sprinkler design and installation. During
this time I served on the board of directors for the Indiana Irrigation
Association and the Indiana State Lawn Care Association. Also receiving
certification in Cross Connection Devices (Back Flow Prevention).
After deciding to pursue a different direction in my career, I worked
in Northern Michigan for a major golf irrigation distributor. In returning
to Indiana to be closer to our family, the past 8 years I've worked
as a sales manager for a large Chicago based irrigation distributor
where I provided sales and technical support to irrigation and landscape
lighting contractors for the companies, 3 Indiana locations; Indianapolis,
South Bend and Valparaiso. It has been a desire and dream of mine
to own my own business again and to be out among my past customers
and making new customers offering my knowledge and service by providing
the highest quality irrigation installations and accenting their homes
and landscaping with professional lighting products and installations...
