It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our Dad and founder, Stan Riegert. Dad started Prairie Lawn and Garden in 1973 in a simple two stall garage. He had a great love of machinery; ask us sometime about the tractor he built in the basement of his house. In 1977 Dad built the current building, with all of the family helping complete the interior construction. In 1980 Dad was honored as the first Small Business Man of the Year of Eden Prairie. Over the 47 years of the business many young people have had their first job as an employee of Prairie Lawn and Garden.
Born and raised in Eden Prairie, Dad loved the community. Besides his commitment to building a business he was a charter member of the Eden Prairie Fire Department, serving for twenty years.
Tom and I are committed to upholding the standards set by our Dad for our business.
Rest in peace Dad.
Stan Riegert – 12/24/37 – 6/20/20
