Meet The Owners

Rye-Land Lawncare - 008

William (Will)  Ryland Jr.

Hi, I am Owner /Operator, William, the second of three Williams in the Ryland family. I go by the name of Will. Born and raised in Fort Walton Beach. As a teenager, I would help my step-dad with his lawn care business. Once I graduated I perused other avenues. After several years of working odd jobs, I landed a job in lawn care and have been doing it ever since. Three years ago I meet a wonderful lady that changed my life forever! She encouraged me to be my own boss, make my own schedule and start my own business. With her having a business management degree and my knowledge of lawn care, we decided to go into business for ourselves. The business has soared and we couldn't be any happier with the successfulness of our efforts. Last November on our 2 year Anniversary I proposed to Holly Fayette...She said YES! We will be getting married on our Anniversary 2020!!!

Hello, I am Owner/Business Manager Holly, The future Mrs.Ryland! I am a military brat raised by a single parent dad. Born in California, moved to Fort Walton Beach from Germany when I was 6 years old and have called this paradise home ever since!  After getting my degree in business management, I pursued management jobs in gas stations, restaurants and retail. While I held management positions in all these positions it wasn't the same, I wanted to own my own business. A few months into mine and Will's relationship, our lives took an unexpected turn. My dad Ken, whom I call Papason, had been battling Parkinson's Disease and was now diagnosed with Dementia and needed 24-hour care. We immediately moved in and I had to quit my job. We decided to start Rye-Land Lawncare so I could work from home and watch over my dad and Will could make his own schedule around dads doctor visits and be the support I needed to help Papason battle this horrible disease. We have been an unstoppable force in this industry ever since.
