Owner/Operator, Earth Angel Landscaping & Property Maintenance | 2021 Entrepreneurship Award Finalist

Sue Knighton

Susan created Earth Angel Landscaping in April 2012 from scratch, while working full-time for another company. She bought an old, used Ford truck, a lawn mower and a broom, and worked through the evenings and weekends looking for clientele for her new property maintenance company.

During her first year, Susan did all the work by herself, but along the way she has found employees to help her.  After 10 years of running the company, and at the age of 68, she still enjoys working alongside her employees, laying sod, replacing old lawns, establishing gardens, and removing bushes and trees.  

Over the last decade, Susan has established many good relationships with her elderly customers, and has provided many students each year with a good job. Susan says she is truly blessed to be able to continue in this line of work.
