  • Our Entrepreneurial Story | Meet Starnes Outdoor Solutions

    July 21, 2020 | Blog | admin1
  • An industry peer recently reminded us that one of the most important stories you’ll ever tell is your entrepreneurial story. For within that story is the passion for why you continue to do what you do day and day out and what sets you a part from others in your industry.

    Year after year, as we invest in our company, our people and our community, we’re investing in that initial spark again and again, for it’s what brought us to today and a nearly two decade old thriving Indiana small business.

    We truly love what do, so we’re taking a moment to share a bit of our fireside entrepreneurial story. We hope you enjoy.

    Meet Starnes Outdoor Solutions

    Starnes Outdoor Solutions was founded in 2003 by Dustin Starnes.

    Along ago, at just 13 years old, Dustin’s boyhood dreams were fueled by mowing lawns. As a young boy, he knew he wanted to go into law enforcement one day and would need an Associate’s Degree. His hardworking entrepreneurial spirit sparked, and he began his own lawn mowing business that carried him through high school and college into a rewarding local and state law enforcement career.

    After a 20 year career, Dustin retired and launched Starnes Outdoor Solutions, a Greater Indianapolis leader in commercial landscape maintenance, snow removal and ice management.

    As an Indiana small business, he is proud to be a part of the community and currently employs nearly two dozen Hoosiers and also provides consistent work for 40 local subcontractors.

    Additionally, Dustin is rooted within his local community with leadership roles within Morgan County and BNI. 

    What drives Dustin and the entire Starnes Outdoor Solutions team? Leaving the world a little better than how we found it, even if it’s just one lawn at a time.
